O Indiawallo!!! Our beloved Santa has reaches in far US also. 😉 Anamika has given me the privilege of reviewing some products for her and I am over the moon because of this. Ye ye!!! So, I decided to start the series with an awesome lip product that I tried for the first time in my life. And I have to say that I am already contemplating to buy the entire collection. 🙂 Yup, this is how I am always broke. 🙁 NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague was a pick because of both the texture and the shade. So, lets dive into the review without further delay.

My take on NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague:
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream comes in several rocking shades. I was intrigued by the texture which is actually a lip cream that sets as a matte finish. And I am crazy for matte lipsticks. So, I was really surprised how a creamy lipstick sets as a perfect matte and did not make my lips dry. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague is described as a ‘matte merlot’ color, but on the lips it has more of a deep berry pink hue. The color looks gorgeous with minimal makeup and really brightens my face. For those of you looking to transition makeup into fall and winter, this is a perfect fall color. 🙂
Texture: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague is a lip cream, as the name suggests. It has a creamy and smooth texture. Goes on very nicely on the lips and does not look patchy at all. Though I have very dry lips, it does not make me feel uncomfortable. But yup, it does emphasize fine lines on the lips and may feather if used without a lip liner.
Pigmentation: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague is a star when comes to pigmentation. One brush dip is enough to coat the lips with a beautiful color.
Staying Power: The lip cream lasts on my lips for around 6-7 hours and also survives meals. It starts fading from the center of the lips, so you do need to carry it for touch ups for the day.
Packaging: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague is packaged like a gloss and has a doe-foot applicator. The wand is light and can be easily handled. It is almost perfect for the application on the lips.

What I do not love about NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague:

My makeup is still unpacked. Sorry for no FOTD. 🙁
Final Impression: I really have to thanks Anamika for letting me review NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague. I have really discovered a gem for me and I am really impressed with the lip cream. The shade is perfect as a bright but wearable lip color. The lip cream does not dry out the lips as quite matte lipsticks do. It lasts for long and gives me the ultimate matte finish. Of course, it does emphasize fine lines, but there is definitely a price to pay for wearing matte lip colors. 😉 Highly recommended!!!
