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.
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.
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.

Do I Recommend: Definitely Yes! Wherever you can find these, get them! Get few for me as well! I sooo want to get the addis adaba but its always OOS here!
