Hello everyone,

My Experience with NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Zurich:

Packaging: I love the color-coordinated tube which helps distinguish the shade right off the bat. The shade name is mentioned via a sticker at the bottom of the tube.

Applicator: The wand is short and precise. It is 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.

Shade:  “Zurich” is described as a matte muted rose. This is a perfect MLBB shade for my light-medium skin tone. Its just one of those shades which look flattering on every single skin tone. Zurich has very good pigmentation, it does not apply streaky or patchy. This lip cream settles to a very beautiful velvety matte finish.

Texture and Feel:  The texture of this lip cream is quite pleasing. It feels featherlight on the lips, almost like a hybrid of a mousse and a cream which sets to a soft and matte look as it dries.
When I wear this product, I totally forget the fact that I have something on my lips.

Pigmentation:  While all the shades that I own have good pigmentation, I have noticed 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 end of the spectrum (some vampy shades and unconventional shades etc) from this range can be streaky and it can get very difficult to make them look “even,” even with multiple coats. Most of the shades in the middle (pinks, reds etc) perform fantastic.

Staying Power:  This particular shade wore 4-5 hours before starting to fade and it was mandatory for me to reapply after eating since there was not hint of the color left. It felt comfortable and non drying throughout the wear.

Overall, I am impressed with this product, with this range especially, for this super affordable price tag, but I would urge you 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, it is a beautiful MLBB for light-medium skin tone girls, but it will be flattering on everyone. It’s such a easy, no-brainer shade which works with everything and anything. I highly recommend “Zurich.”
