Yes, I know I have already done a blog post about ‘NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams‘, but when I was at the NYX counter in my local Boots, I picked two more colours and I couldn’t not show them to you! But I recommend you checking out my previous blog post on them, however that is an ancient blog post so 1) excuse the awful photo quality and lack of editing but 2) because it was so long ago I feel like it is OK to do this post. Anyway you can find that here…
So I swatched the majority of the ‘Soft Matte Lip Creams‘ when I was at the counter but I only picked two up as I didn’t want to over indulge my self. The colours I got were ‘Budapest‘ and ‘San Paulo‘. Budapest is the darker shade of the two. The best way to describe it would be a deep berry shade with a wine and pink undertone. As it is coming into Autumn it is time to crack out those dark berry lipsticks, and I can add this to my collection. The other shade ‘San Paulo‘ is a pink shade, lighter than ‘Budapest‘ but it still comes out a deeper and darker pink shade. These shades are both perfect for Autumn because bright and lighter pink shades are typically best suited for spring and summer, but because they are darker tones they are perfect for Autumn.
As you can see from the swatches, both are very pigmented. The photo doesn’t actually do it justice as both actually come out darker than they do in the photo. ‘Budapest‘ is slightly streakier than the other but that is expected because darker tones are always a tiny bit streaky. I love the feel of the ‘Soft Matte Lip Creams‘ because they dry nicely on the lips and aren’t as drying as some liquid lipsticks are. Don’t get me wrong it can be drying, like any liquid lipstick but not as much as others. It isn’t too heavy or thick either, it sits nicely without you thinking about it when wearing it. If you don’t understand me then sometimes when you wear thick lipsticks they can cause your lips to go sticky or you can just feel it… sort of… Ha ha! I hope you get me! Also the lipsticks smell super nice, literally of Vanilla but when you eat it can rub off. They colour still will be there but it won’t look as pretty. Just add another coat and off you go!
If your looking for a liquid lipstick to try then you MUST get this because its super good and inexpensive!
You can find the product here.
