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?
