NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo

Hello There,

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?

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).
  • Economical.

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.

Overall Verdict:

If you do not have dry lips, you can definitely give this a try, not quite an impressive product for me.

  2. wowiiee Kaps..I am eyeing this color since long…may order it next month.. and I love antwerp too but dont know if it would look good me me..I have wheatish complexion :))

    1. Hmm, that’s the con with online shopping. Can’t really say if a shade will suite us 🙁 . Even I wanted Antwerp, but was not sure if it will suite my NC42 skin. All the best for your purchase :)) :yes:

      1. I havent seen this here on NYX counters here in India so far.. and even if they are avail they’d be very expensive so it’s better to buy stuff in bulk on cherryculture porkdaisy or beautyjoint …even after the shipping the total cost is far far less than what one has to spend here

  3. Karpagam, these lip creams are super gorgeous but didn’t work for me too as I’ve dry lips.. 🙁 I had nyx- ababa..

    1. Yeah Vish, I guess NYX has heard us and has come up with their new product “NYX Xtreme Lip Cream”, which is supposed to solve that drying issue. Lets see :))

  4. Candy Floss Pink..!! Suits you perfect.. 🙂

    And Sao Paulo is the name of place where I live.. :haanji: If its having Antwerp & Addis Ababa as their shades…means they are chosing names of diff cities & in that case its Sa’o’ Paulo..Are you listening NYX fellas… :announce:
