I feel like quite the fraudulent beauty blogger admitting this but until a few days ago, I had never tried anything from the brand NYX. Of course I had an ongoing wish list every time I read a new blog post on their gorgeous array of lip products but because I was never near a counter to ‘get my swatch on’, I always held back making a purchase.
So you can only imagine my excitement when I saw my local Boots had finally decided to treat us to a rather large NYX stand, merely a five minute walk from my front door! Boy oh boy, what a delight to my eyes and of course, the first thing I made a beeline for, were the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams (£5.50). With so many shades to choose from it was all a bit overwhelming but I finally decided on just these three luscious colours…for now! From top to bottom we have: Tokyo, Cairo and Istanbul.
The Soft Matte Lip Creams were everything I imagined and more. They have that beautiful, velvety soft texture that glides on like a dream and dries down to a comfortable, long wearing matte finish. They are neither a lipstick nor a gloss but a wonderful, in-between product that feels creamy and lightweight to apply and gives an amazing colour payoff. The cushioned, tapered doe foot applicator makes it easy to apply and define the outline of your lips for a really clean, crisp finish. I absolutely love these lip products and will definitely be heading back for a few more!
