Aahh! I gave some rest to my glossy lipstick last week and jumped on to these NYX matee lip creams which have been with me since an year.As far as I remember I got it with Zee when we shopped from cherry culture.During that period I was in my glossy phase so avoided them but recently you must have noticed me wearing these quite often in my looks.Recent being Sleek blush .
About NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream:-
Neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing. Available in 11 lip colors.
- Price – INR 563 and $6 on cherry culture.(For 4gms)
- Shades – Out of 11 shades I will be showing 3 which are Addis Adaba, Amsterdam & San Paulo .Zee has reviewed shade Istanbul here.(Nyx have named these lip creams on cities which is kind of strange.Imagine Lakme naming lipstick as Ahemdabad, Surat,Chandigardh etc )
- Ingredients:-Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Dimethicone, Beeswax, Glyceryl Behenate / Eicosadioate, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethicone / Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Talc, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Silica, Aluminium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Isohexadecane, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Parfum. May Contain: CI77019 (Mica) / CI77891…
- Packaging – It comes in a round transparent tube travel friendly packaging which has a sponge applicator.As its an transparent tube therefore one doesn’t have to face issue in picking the shade.They look pretty and the sponge applicator goes very well in the application.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Texture, Pigmentation, Staying Power, Fragrance and my experience:-
It has a soft creamy texture and when I apply it with the sponge applicator it covers pigmentation easily and transformed itself into a matte shade.It’s kind of a light cream consistency therefore if not applied carefully then I do see some unevenness on my lips which needs to be worked upon.It’s opaque and covers heaviest of pigmentation.It doesn’t have a plumping affect but makes me lips look little bigger than usual especially with shade like Addis Adaba and San paulo.
It will stay for 5-6 hours easily provided if I don’t eat in between which is next to impossible .After a meal all the shades leave a matte tint behind which makes my lips look of the same shade colour.
Swatches of NYX Matte Lip Cream:-
- San Paulo – It’s a reddish pink with a tad bit of brown which suits me the most.In day light it appears more pink and with flash it comes out more red.This shade will look different depending on your lip pigmentation but most of time it will suit most skin tone.
- Addis Adaba – It’s a bright fuchsia pink shade with strong blue undertones.I do need a base of foundation or compact to use it otherwise it kind of wash me out.
- Amsterdam – It’s a true matte red and I simply love this gorgeous shade.

What I like about NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream :-
- Nice Travel friendly packaging
- Decently priced and easily available now.
- Non sticky and long staying power
- Can be used through out the year.
- Makes my lips look little plump
What I do not like about NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream:-
- If you have dry and chapped lips then you will definitely need to scrub your lips before using it.
- Many shades in this range are too light for Indian olive skin tone therefore might wash you out.
- A lip balm is a must before using it.
- If most of your lipsticks settle into fine lines then this one is not for you.
Wise She Rating:-
- Pigmentation– 3.5/5
- Texture – 3/5
- Price Vs Quality – 4/5
- Packaging – 5/5
