FOTD: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo

I recently got a hold of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. I tried my best to stop the urges but it's quite difficult. I've been in and out of Brigitte's blog about the NYX Matte Lip Creams and I finally gave in and visited Sol at her physical Store called Beauty and Geeks, at Eton Life Building (across Rob Galleria). I asked her to reserve me Monte Carlo, Amsterdam, San Paolo, Addis Ababa and Stockholm. It did not disappoint.

Ever since I watched Captain America: The First Avenger, I've developed this desire to own a red matte lipstick and NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams immediately was the first thing I thought of. I knew that their reds are amazingly pigmented, worthy of the 1950's glamour. I've always been fascinated with women in those era to a point that I think I one of them in my past life. How does a woman dressed up when Nazi were trying to take over the whole world?

But enough of that and let's get back to the beauty deal. Suffice it to say that I'm very happy with all my NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams that I've been wearing it almost everyday!

I paired the bold pink shade of San Paulo with a neutral makeup made up of neutral pigments from Ellana. Of course I use my new favorite blush from Shu Uemura called Medium Red as its very pigmented to partner with San Paulo Lip Cream.

See? See how it gives that flawless matte effect? What I love about the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams is that it doesn't stain the lips nor does it dry it out like most mattes. It's easy to remove which a good thing. But not so when you're eating since you would definitely need to retouch right after or risk looking like you applied a lip pencil on the edge of your lips.

It's easy to apply as well using the sponge tip applicator and I didn't feel the need to use my lip brush. Though I'm sure it'll look more flawless should I use one.

I just love the "malinis" effect of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Wearing bold colors when its matte is less "out there" compared to its frost or satin counterparts. I still managed to look decent.

If you ask me, NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are a must-have for those who want the matte effect. It's one of the best that I've tried. And true to its name, it's very matte and soft against the lips.

What do you think? It this something you think you would try as well? Have you tried NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams? Share them with me please!

I got mine at via their store at Building 1, Eton Life, Ortigas.
