Nowadays, you have endless options with great lipstick formulas. Recently, I hauled a bunch of shades from the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream range which offers a huge range of shades at an affordable price. I will be reviewing the shades from my collection over the next few days. This review will be on the shade “Paris.”
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 Paris:
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 has 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.
Texture and Feel: I love the texture of these lip creams from NYX. True to the name, it feels almost like a hybrid of a mousse and a cream and with a slight satin sheen initially which sets to a soft matte look as it dries. This lip cream feels feather light on the lips. When I wear this, I totally forget the fact that I have something on my lips, it does not feel drying at all even on my winter-parched lips. It does not bleed and there is minimal amount of transfer. It’s one of the most comfiest lip products I own.
Shade and Pigmentation: While all shades I own are full coverage and pigmented, I have noticed that 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 shades (burgundies and unconventional shades like teals etc) from their range apply streaky and it can get very difficult to make them look even even with two coats. Most of the shades in the middle pinks, reds etc., perform fantastic.
“Paris” is described as a hot pink color. This shade is bright, bold, “girly girls” dream. It applies smoothly, goes not streak free and full opaque pigmentation in a single coat.
Staying Power: The shade stays on my lips for 6-7 hours before I notice slight fading while staying very comfortable and non drying on my lips all through the wear. It does survive through snacks and drinks, but I do have to reapply after a full meal.
Overall, I am impressed with this product, especially for this super affordable price tag, but I would recommend 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 highly recommend!
