Today’s review is on the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in shade “San Paulo.” Basically, I like my lip products to be glossy, creamy, hydrating to make my dry lips look healthy. When everyone raved about NYX soft matte lip creams, I so wanted to try them. After a long research and wait, I got the shade San Paulo from that range. Did this turn out to be a hit for me?
Neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is 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 in San Paulo:
The website swatch appeared like a rosy-brown shade, but when I received it, it was a bright warm pink. Anyway, I was “okay” with the shade. I was quite impressed the moment I tried this product. From the shade, to the feel, to the way it went on, to the pigmentation and everything, but my happiness didn’t last for long. As the product dried, it started making my lips look chapped and accentuated the little dry spots I had. I have dry lips but my lips were not in a very bad condition that day.
I have tried it even over a lip balm, still did not get a great result. The next day my lip felt extremely dry and I had to slather lip balm to bring it back to normal. I can see why gals with smooth lips love this one. So, basically it is not for dry lip gals. I now use very less product over lip balm. It makes it look like a tint and drying is less.
Pros of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo:
- Super pigmented.
- Gorgeous warm pink shade, which brightens the face instantly.
- Goes on smooth (it goes on streaky if more product is used).
Cons of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo:
- Definitely not for dry lips.
- Smell might bother if you are sensitive to strong smells.
If you do not have dry lips, you can definitely give this a try, not quite an impressive product for me.
