My Experience with NYX Manila Soft Matte Lip Cream:
These lip creams come with a wide variety of shades from nudes to the bold ones. NYX is one drugstore brand, which has never disappointed me. I loved their liquid suede range.
These lip creams come in a cylindrical color-coded tube. It has a nice velvety matte cap. All the ingredients list, product description and other details are mentioned on this tiny tube. The packaging is sleek and classy. The color-coded body helps to identify the shade from vanity. The applicator of the lip cream is typical doe-foot type. The applicator is soft and of good quality. The applicator wand is neither too long nor too short and it is good for precise application.
It has a very fresh and sweet vanilla fragrance. It is non-bothering and I absolutely love its fragrance. I love how the shades are named in this range on the name of cities.
The shade “Manila” is a very pretty coral pink shade. I always search for such coral shades. When I spotted this one, I fell in love with it. It brightens up my face instantly and it will suit fair to medium skin tones. It has some warm reddish undertones to it. So, it actually washes out the skin tones with cooler undertones. But, on me it looked so pretty. It has actually become my favorite shade these days. It is such a nice summery shade, which is just perfect for daily wear.
It is free from any shimmers or glitters. The texture is soft and creamy; actually, it is SUPER soft. It is thick in consistency. The pigmentation is great. One swipe gives opaque coverage. But for perfect finish & coverage two swipes are required. But, do not layer it too much; otherwise it will get streaky after it sets. Layering might lead it to settle into the fine lines of the lips.
Prepping your lips is advisable, if you have dry & chapped lips, to avoid cakey & streaky finish. It feels light & comfortable on the lips. Though it has slightly glossy finish when it is applied, but it sets to nice ultra matte finish. The formula is definitely very moisturizing and hydrating but if you have very dry lips it is better to put a lip balm underneath to avoid drying of the lips. But, with a lip balm underneath, the matte effect is reduced.
It is smudge proof and does not budge at all. The formula is not totally transfer proof and it does transfer in some powdery kind of form. A very little transferring is there which is quite bearable. The staying power is great. It lasts for approx. 5-6 hours without budging. It does not survive full oily meals and starts to fade from the inner corners of the lips. So, touch ups are required. Overall, I am in love with this lip cream by NYX.
