Today I will be reviewing a lip matte cream from VOV in shade no.09. I know by now most of you make-up lovers would know that NYX was the first to launch these, a one of its kind product. And this one by VOV is an exact affordable copy of NYX soft lip matte creams (exact dupe!!). After using this I must say that I am becoming a fond aficionado of VOV products. Read on more to see how this shade looks.
It’s not a lipstick nor is it a gloss. It’s like nothing you’ve experienced before. It is a lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.
My Experience with VOV Soft Matte Lip Cream #09:
As make up lovers most of you would know. The cream comes in a normal packaging with a black cap and a doe foot applicator. It is a soft matte nude brown kinda shade with pink undertones. I love a nude lip. It’s my favorite look! It’s very 60′s, which I love. But be careful, it may not suit all skin tones and make you look washed out. (Perfect for fair/Olive skinned beauties:-P) It is best for college students and office goers as it is very appropriate for day time. It smells very nice like that of vanilla waffles (yum, yum) 😛
The pigmentation is pretty good; you get a good color in 1-2 swipes. The lasting power is 2 to 3 hours if you have eaten something; otherwise it stays for pretty long time. Also, the colour fades faster in the centre of the lips and if you look closely, you can see your lips showing through. When applied it’s very creamy, but I suggest that you apply a lipbalm before you apply it because it goes on silky but then turns matte. And a matte formula lipstick always tends to settle in the fine lines of the lips. This I cannot confirm because I haven’t used any of the NYX ones, but from the pictures and reviews I’ve seen online, they seem pretty similar. They are smooth and creamy and dry into a matte texture, but the difference here is that the VOV ones take a while to dry. They don’t dry fully in 5-10 minutes. They take at least 20 minutes to dry fully and become somewhat transfer-proof.
Pros of VOV Soft Matte Lip Cream #09:
• Cruelty free and hypoallergenic.
• Unique formula.
• Does not contain parabens.
• Nice matte texture.
• Available in a variety of shades.
Cons of VOV Soft Matte Lip Cream #09:
• This shade may not suit all skin tones.
• Not easily available.
• Settles in fine lines of the lips..
• Not moisturizing enough.
• Staying power is not good.
It is an affordable alternative to NYX matte lip creams. Those who like matte finish should definitely try these at such a low price.
