Here’s my review on NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade “Dubai.”
NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream straddles the line between lipstick and gloss!
• Creamy, lustrous formula applies like silk
• Soft matte finish exudes a sensual glow
• Unique innovative texture adds the perfect polish to any look
My Experience with NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Dubai:
Packaging: I love the color-coordinated tube which helps distinguish the shade right off the bat. The shade name is mentioned via a sticker on the bottom of the tube.
Applicator: The wand is short and precise. It is a double-sided doe foot wand, so it picks up enough product for you to coat your entire lips with a single dip using both sides.
Shade: “Dubai” is described as a medium cool brown color. It is a beautiful taupe brown. I feel it’s one of those shades which instantly make you feel edgy and cool the moment you put it on. It is definitely a statement shade and will be very easy to rock with Indian skin tones. Some deeper shade girls will even find this to be a good n*de for them. This particular shade has full opaque pigmentation in one swipe. It goes on smoothly with out any streakiness.
Texture and Feel: The texture of these lip creams is quite pleasing. These lip creams feel featherlight on the lips, almost like a hybrid of a mousse and a cream which sets to a soft matte look as it dries. WhenI wear this lip cream, I totally forget the fact that I have something on my lips.
Pigmentation: While all shades I own have good pigmentation, I have noticed some apply streakier and dry patchier than others. I have found that the shades on the lightest end (some of the n*des and pastel shades) and the darkest end of the spectrum (some vampy shades and unconventional shades etc) from their range can be streaky and it can get very difficult to make them look even even with multiple coats. Most of the shades in the middle( pinks, reds , browns etc) perform fantastic.
Staying Power: This particular shade wears for 6 hours before starting to fade away. There is moderate amount of fading from the inside of the lips after a full meal.
Overall, I am impressed with this product with this range especially for this super affordable price tag, but I would urge you to read reviews for the shades you are eyeing as the performance is not consistent across the board for all shades. As for this particular shade, I love it and will recommend.
