NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (Review + Lip Swatches)
Hello my beauties,
Hope everyone is having a great day today 🙂 This is the season of matte lips almost all the brand have come up with their version of mate liquid lipsticks which are booming the makeup industry and today il be sharing my opinion on these SMLC by NYX and why i love them so much ❤
Im always skeptical in purchasing and trying out new products so I selected these few shades to try out and totally got hooked with these babies 😉 This is the 1st product that made me fall in love with NYX as a brand ! These matte lip creams are one of the best product by NYX and totally worth spending money on 🙂
Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favorite.
These SMLC comes in a color coordinated plastic tube with a matte twist to open cap. The wand is firm and gives a even application in one dip (It depends if you want an opaque application). The ingredients and other information is printed on the tube along withe product name and detail. The shade name and number is printed on a sticker at the bottom of the tube. It contains 0.27 Fl/Oz (8 ml)
The formula is a winner for me personally because its creamy, buttery when applied and drys into a matte finish on the lips. Very comfortable and not sticky what so ever and super hydrating on the lips with a cupcake scent. Its like a dream come true !! It lasts for a good 4-5 hrs and fades nicely all over the lips and does not give a butt hole between the lips which is great.
For most recent ingredient list, please refer to packaging.

EXPERIENCE & FINAL VERDICT
If you are reading this blog from the top you already know my love for these 😛 I am picky when it comes to lipsticks in general because i cannot stand the chemical smell and something which feels on your lips but these SMLC are one of the very few liquid lipsticks i tried out and absolutely loved !
The formula is not a thick liquid but more towards a mousy texture that gives an even finish on the lips and dry matte but still is super hydrating + fades out evenly and tints the lip. It has a decent amount of lasting power and helds upto 4-5 hrs depending on how much you eat or drink. You can always re-apply an even layer on top and it wont become flaky or dry out your lips.
It has amazing shade rang for all skin tones and variety of shades of nudes and pink to choose from. The packaging is very travel friendly and economical to just throw in the purse and get set going 🙂
