I’m slightly late to the party with this blog post but I have finally managed to get my hands on a few NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Because NYX is quite a new brand to the UK and I hadn’t tried any of their products before, I wanted to pop in store to try them rather than buy online. When I finally managed to get to my nearest store that stocked NYX I was soo bamboozled by all of the shades. I love the fact that there are so many to choose from but, it’s not very good for my bank balance. Although they are reasonably priced at £5.50 each, there are just too many nice shades!
I told myself I could only walk away with 2 shades this time but ended up with 3. I don’t think that’s too bad really considering there are 34 shades to choose from! So in the picture above, from left to right I chose: 02 Stockholm, 25 Budapest and 20 Copenhagen.
The texture of this product is beautiful and just what I’d hoped it would be, creamy velvety soft. They are soo nice! Long lasting and they aren’t drying either. The colour and pigment of each shade is perfect, no wishy-washy colours. Stockholm is a nude shade perfect for the daytime and I even wear Budapest during the day if I want a more dramatic look. Copenhagen is perfect for an evening out, it’s a beautiful deep purple. Budapest and Copenhagen are also perfect autumnal shades so I am excited we are slowly creeping into autumn now.
Think I will be making more NYX purchases shortly! Who has tried NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams? And what shade is your favourite?
