NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Milan

Hi Beauties,

I am here with the review of the NYX Soft Matt Lip Cream “Milan.”  This was one among the NYX goodies that my hubby got for me from the US a couple of months ago.  I am more of a matte lipstick girl rather than glossy or shimmery kind.  So, I particularly asked him to get me this matte lip cream.  Read more about NYX Soft Matte lip cream “Milan:”

Product Description:

Neither lipstick nor lip gloss — this is a 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.

My Take on NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Milan:

Firstly the packaging, it comes in a tube which is sleek and unbreakable.  The tube is transparent showing out the color of the lip cream. This tube looks sturdy and easily fits in the pouch. It has a black cap with a brush applicator.

NYX follows a unique naming convention giving each shade the names of the cities around the globe. The color I own is “Milan.” This is a beautiful pink shade, not very dashy or bright though.

The texture is super smooth and creamy. It glides utterly butterly on the lips and smells totally of yummy vanilla candy. It reminds me of the smell of “Big Babool  chewing gums, smells awesome!

True to its claim, it’s neither a lip gloss nor a lipstick, its a cream. This lip cream has no shimmer at all, perfectly matte! The color pigmentation is medium to cover the pigmentation on lips. Two or three swipes will be required for pigmented lips. The staying power is really worth mentioning. It is really long-lasting and even after a full lunch, the hint of the cream stays on the lips.  It does not fade out completely and it does not transfer to cups or glasses.

Now, what I don’t like about the lip cream is that it isn’t moisturizing at all. It makes your lips dry and chapped. Make sure you properly exfoliate your lips and pamper your lips with a lip balm before you go for this lip cream, otherwise, your lips would look terribly cracky.

Pros of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Milan:

  • Stays on the lips for a long time, around 4-5 hours.
  • Looks perfectly matte.
  • Not tested on animals and hypoallergenic.
  • Yummy vanilla fragrance.

Cons of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Milan:

  • Price is a bit on the higher side.
  • Pigmentation is average.
  • Dries out your lips and needs a supportive lip balm.
  • Availability is an issue.

Will I Repurchase NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Milan?

Definitely, yes! I will try the other color variants too.

IMBB Rating:


Finally summing up, this is an excellent lip cream with a yummy smell and smooth creamy texture, except for the drawback that it makes your lips dry! If you are a lover of matte lipsticks, then this one is for you.
