Beauty // Review: Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream

                                                                            Hey lovelies,
Firstly, I am so happy with how these pictures turned out! I've had my Cannon 1100D for exactly a year now and I feel like recently I've been trying to get better at using it. I still don't think I use it to its full potential but I am still learning. I think in January as a little post Christmas present to myself I want to book a photography course as I think it'll be fun and really useful. I also want to get a new lens - recommendations appreciated!

It's been a few months now since NYX finally started stocking its products all over the UK and I've been loving testing loads out. I am still obsessed with my two lip lingerie liquid lipsticks but I wanted to try these soft matte lip creams as I personally found they had a better variety of shades and I'd heard quite a few mixed reviews on these, so wanted to try them out myself.


Abu Dhabi - £5.50
Transylvania - £5.50
Rome - £5.50
Copenhagen - £5.50 

I got all four of my shades in my local Boots! I didn't realise they'd started stocking NYX, so I went in not really having shades in mind. 'Rome' is definitely my favourite shade, it's a gorgeous everyday pink which is amazing at adding a bit extra on days when I have quite a basic makeup look. I think Transylvania and Copenhagen are the perfect shades for A/W! I will never say no to a dark lip around this time of year. I'd probably say Abu Dhabi is my least favourite shade as it was my first purchase as I picked it up accidentally thinking it was a different shade - It's a nice colour but it's a type of "nude barely there" shade so I don't really feel like it does anything for me when I have it on.

In terms of how it applies I do have some problems with it and upon looking at reviews I've noticed a large majority of others think the same. Firstly on the opening of each one I realised that there really isn't a lot of product in a bottle, I know these are only priced at £5.50 but I don't think that justifies it. Secondly I don't seem to find them very pigmented, I found that sometimes it comes out very streaky on the lips and it takes a few extra dips and swipes to the lips to really get it at its best and even then I'm not too impressed. I found that applying lip liner first works wonders to fix the problem. Overall, I'd probably rate these a 4.5 out of 10 as I do quite like them but the cons outweigh the pros. I am a big fan of some of NYX's other products so I won't be put off.


Have you tried these or other products from NYX?
