Do you feel like you want something just because how pretty it looks, and not because you actually need it… It happens to me a lot, I am attracted to pretty and shiny things. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream might not have a shiny packing to take my attention, but the colour range and how much raved it is in the beauty world were pretty enough for me to make a decision…
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Ibiza | Review
NYX Soft Matte lip cream in Ibiza is the first and only product I own from NYX. I got it in October, and I mentioned it in my post Mini Boots Haul. I wanted to check the quality of the products before actually investing in more products, if that makes any sense.
NYX Soft Matte range has a great colour selection (around 20), and the shades are named after cities, how cool it is! There are nudes, pinks and reds, so it is almost impossible to not find a colour you might like. I wasn’t really sure about which one to get. I had my eyes on Cannes (mauvy nude), but ended up picking up Ibiza, which is a beautiful shade of pink, like coral pink. It would be an ideal lip colour for spring. These lip creams are really pigmented, so tiny amount on the brush will be more than enough for a natural looking lips.
I am new to matte lip creams, I only used a few of them and I wasn’t really impressed with them. If you have dry lips like me, you probably know the struggle of wearing matte lip products. You have to scrub your lips and wear plenty amount of lip balm before putting matte products and it might not be the best option if you don’t have so much time. This NYX Soft Matte lip cream goes matte after applying. Even though it is not drying for dry lips, I would highly suggest you to wear lip balm beforehand. The good thing is these lip creams are not drying, so you can wear it without worrying about getting dry lips.
What I like about NYX Soft Matte lip cream is, it is not heavy, but has really light texture and feels so soft on the lips. Even though it has creamy consistency, it doesn’t feel that way on the lips. I really don’t like heavy creamy lip products, which gets everywhere (it gets really hard to eat without worrying about your food), even after hours applying it. When you wear this lip cream, you can enjoy food and don’t worry about your lips, once they go matte they won’t move and they will actually last for hours, I am really happy to know that they are long lasting.
NYX Soft Matte lip creams has a slight scent, but it is not overwhelming. I actually like this scent, and you can’t smell it once you apply it anyway, so even if you don’t like scented makeup products, I can assure you that this one will not annoy you.
Overall, I really enjoy wearing this lip cream. Like I said before, even though I have dry lips, it feels so soft on the lips and it doesn’t make my lips dry. The matte finish is beautiful and it being long lasting is a big plus for me. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes matte lips, you will love the finish of it.
