So as you may have heard NYX has made it’s way to highstreet stores in the UK… something I couldn’t have been more excited about!  There have been so many NYX products I’ve wanted for a really long time so as soon as they launched I rushed out and splurged a little!

One of the things I most wanted to get my hands on were the Soft Matte Lip Cremes and after browsing their stand in Selfridges for over half an hour, these were the four I settled on!

L-R Athens, London, Stockholm, Morocco

I think you’ll agree these are just stunning!  They are so pigmented but at the same time their formula is super creamy and just a delight to apply to the lips.

The three nudes I picked up look similar in the packaging but are all really different.  Athens has become my go-to lip shade and the one I reach for the most.  It really reminds me of my all time favourite lipstick which is Barely There by Sleek Makeup – it’s practically identical but in liquid form – a peachy pink nude.

London is a beautiful brown nude, almost like a milky mocha shade which is very ‘in’ right now, and Stockholm is almost a mix of the two – a pinky brown nude.  I then obviously had to pick up Morocco as I’m obsessed with orange toned red matte lipsticks (Illamasqua’s Exotic being really similar but almost triple the price).

I really can’t fault these products.  They are really affordable at £5.50 each, come in such a gorgeous variety of shades (there really is something for everyone) and they are moisturising on the lips as opposed to other matte lipsticks that cling to any dry patches.  I can’t wait to purchase some more (I can see this becoming an addiction)!

Have you tried the NYX Matte Lip Cremes?  Which of these is your favourite?

    I just got my hands one of these the other day, haven't used it yet I got the shade Prague. I love their liquid suede lipstick, and I wanted to try something that was going to be a little more moisturizing to my lips. That Athens shade is so pretty i may have to hunt that one down, this was a great post thank you !!

    I haven't tried any as of yet but everyone seems to love them. I need to get some when payday comes tomorrow. Athens looks the best out of the ones above.

    I had planned to head down to my local NYX counter today as i was going to pick up a few of their vivid light eyeliners but i think i am going to have to add London to my list now too…

    love all these colours, they are so good ive tried a couple x

  13. June 30, 2016 / 3:16 pm

    They all are stunning shades.. London has to be my fave shade by far it's the perfect nude.. 5.50 is such a steal for a lip product that has such great payoff xx

  14. June 30, 2016 / 10:52 pm

    The Lip Creams are my new favourite lipsticks! I love the look of Stockholm so I'll have to pick it up when I'm next near an NYX counter x

  19. July 3, 2016 / 2:09 pm

    I really want to get these nude shades! I already own Zurich and it's one of my favourites. Stockholm reminds me of a shade from Kylie Jenner ( not sure which, since I didn't get any of her liquid lipsticks)

    I also really like their pinks! San Paulo, Milan and Prague are amazing shades!

    Take care*

    These are amazing colors. I don't really like cherry red, but the earth tones are my favorites. Great info. Surprised they are that cheap.

  22. July 26, 2016 / 5:32 am

    Morocco and London look beautiful! I've only tried one before, borrowed it from a friend. I need to get a few shades for myself, though, they're lovely <3
