Sephora at Select Citywalk is always OOS for NYX brand. Except for a few useless eyeshadows, there’s hardly any stuff there. I had bought this lip cream in January this year but had misplaced it while changing my dressing table. But recently when I found it again, I just can’t tell you how happy I was, really! Have been wearing it every other day since then! See it to believe what a gorgeous shade this is!

What NYX Says:

Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color 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.

Price: $6

Packaging: these lip creams come in a transparent see through slim bottles with a doefoot applicator. The packaging is simple easy to use and regular. Nothing much to talk about.

Shade: Sao Paulo is a rusty pink kinda shade. Its both subtle and bright at the same time. Beautiful shade to go with both western and Indian wear.

Texture: the lip cream are aptly named as Soft Matte Lip Creams- these are soft and absolutely matte in texture. Soft to apply and immediately settle to a matte texture. A matte lover’s delight. Though dry lips will have an issue coz these tend to dry the lips over time.

Pigmentation: Awesomely pigmented. The velvety matte cream goes opaque in single swipe only.

Final Thoughts:

I simply love this to the core. My favourite matte lipstick these days. The shade is gorgeous, the texture is pretty nice. The best is its staying power- this easily stays for 5-6 hours and even survives meals in between. The only thing is that it dries out the lips after around 3 hours so a lip balm is definitely needed else it gets really uncomfortable.

Also my other qualm is its smell, its too plasticky, yukkk!!! Thankfully, it does not stay beyond initial few seconds.
