NYX Lip Creams in Stockholm and Tokyo
(picture from official NYX website)
What The Company Claims:
Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing. Available in 11 lip colors.
$ 6 each.
The NYX lip creams come in 11 beautiful shades,
I have the shades Stockholm, Tokyo, Addis Ababa and Antwerp O:) O:) O:)
Enjoy the pictures:
It’s a shade between light brown/beige and pink. It shows up slightly pinker on my lips than on my hand, which is a good thing for me. I like this colour a lot, it’s a great nude when you are looking for a more subdued look and I am personally very fond of it.
Is a nude, very light, soft peachy pink colour. I don’t know it makes me look a little pale, so I am not much fond of it.
Is a bright blue-based pink or fuchsia I would rather call it.
Is a neonish coral pink colour.
My Take On Nyx Lip Creams:
NYX lip cream is one of its finest lip product. We all have used lipsticks, lip glosses, but these lip creams are a different concept/formula.
NYX Soft Matte Creams can easily change your mind about matte finishes. If the dryness is what puts you off in matte lipsticks you should definitely give these a shot. They glide on the lips like butter and give a smooth effect to the lips. The lip creams are not heavy/feel weightless on the lips and are not sticky at all. They have a mix of vanilla+ bubble gum+candy scent which I like. The colour payoff, pigmentation of these lip creams is great and you can even just layer on if you want more colour and pigmentation. The staying power is a good 4-5 hours of wear and they do manage to leave behind some tint of colour, so your lips aren’t completely bare once the lip cream fades!
Overall, these wear very comfortably and have an incredibly beautiful finish. I don’t reach out for matte lip products often, but these one I am really fond of.
Summing their pros and cons:
:yes: Glide on easily on the lips and makes them soft.
:yes: Do not dry out the lips despite being matte finish.
:yes: Comfortable to apply with the soft doe-foot applicator.
:yes: Good pigmentation, opaque coverage.
:yes: Great staying power/long wear.
:yes: Decently priced at 6$.
:yes: NYX products are not tested on animals.
:no: These tend to emphasis your fine lines on the lips.
:no: If you have dry/chapped lips you wont like them much or you will have to wear a lip balm underneath them.
:no: NYX products are not easily available in India.
