PRODUCT REVIEW – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Shades-Stockholm (SMLC02) and London(SMLC04)

IMG_4995.PNG

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream has 34 shades to choose from, all ranging from nudes to vibrant colors. Although, I prefer the pink and nudes. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is one of the best lip creams I have ever used. I have become an absolute sucker for matte lipsticks ever since I bought these. It has a creamy texture that glides smoothly, feels weightless and sets to matte finish, and I prefer the texture of these over most liquid lipsticks as they do not dry out my lips. It lasts for at least 5 to 6 hours and keeps my lips moisturized, which makes this product simply amazing for the price!

Its packaging is not too fancy but it comes in a cute color-coded tube with a velvety black cap; it’s compact and perfect for your handbag. It has a doe foot applicator which helps in precise application. The shades are highly pigmented so you might not see a much difference in multiple coats, but to avoid the streaky feel, apply it once horizontally and then vertically.

My current favorite shades are-

Stockholm

London

Here are the shades that I have and their individual swatches:

Stockholm (SMLC02)

It’s an earthy shade with pinkish undertones. This matte lip cream smells amazing, somewhat like vanilla! For a more subdued look, it’s a perfect nude and I am personally very fond of it, usually the shade I reach for when I can’t decide what goes best with any outfit. However, it is a neutral shade yet richly pigmented and opaque enough to cover pigmented lips in one application. I recommend this shade as it is well-matched for light to medium skin tones and it could wash out darker complexions.

MRP: Rs 570 (bought from Sephora Pune)

Here you can see how it looks like on my skin tone.

London(SMLC04)

London is a beautiful nude lip color with a pinch of brown; it appears very natural on fair and light skin tones. Pigmentation is on the medium side, so it doesn’t look totally opaque on the lips in one swipe. I absolutely love how lightweight this is on the lips. It keeps my lips moisturized too!

MRP: Rs 600 (bought from Nykaa)

Here you can see how it looks like on my skin tone.
