NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Havana Review

By Tuba S.

Hello my lovelies,

Let me start off by saying the colors in the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream range are purely gorgeous! I love all the shades NYX has assembled in their vintage fad of Soft Matte Lip Cream collection. There’s a nice variety of neutrals, reds, pinks, purples and some vibrant colors. Calling out to everyone who loves bright and daring – let’s review one of the “bold” shades from the SMLC line – “Havana.”

$6/600 INR
Product Description:
The excellent range of silky, smooth and soft matte lip cream offers resilient quality in the variation of shades that sets superbly into a perfect matte finish. Our product line is immaculate, long-lasting, and lightweight with a creamy finish.

My Experience with NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Havana:

Havana, like all shades from NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Cream range comes in a beautiful packaging with vivid colour.. The applicator works nicely and precisely for a perfect application, however, for this particular shade, the application comes off patchy.

“Havana” is such a bold purple shade with cool blue undertones which has a whipped mouse texture. The problem with such shades in many other brands, too, is that they come off very streaky ; and ‘Havana’ nests this problem as well! One has to layer on two- three coats for an even application.

Throwing some disappointment here; just like all the shades from this range, Havana, too, has a weak lasting power staying around three to four hours on the lips. It is transferable and does smudge, which again is a disappointment.

“Havana” is a great addition to a true blue purple lover’s collection. Although a tad bit tough to apply, the colour stays on beautifully for upto three hours. A statement shade that needs no heavy eye makeup, I am completely besotted with this even if I have to reapply it 4 times a day!
Really hoping NYX improves the formulation of this one.
