Product Feature/Review: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream8/16/2011Shen Gee
To say I like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams is an understatement. I'm actually addicted to it. Ever since I bought them at Sol's physical store at Beauty and Geeks, I was hooked. I would normally wait a while to use a product for the need to take pictures of them first, but not with these ones. I was already testing them out as soon as I got home.
Main reason I was suddenly induced to try matte lipies, like I mentioned in my NYX San Paulo FOTD post, was because of the movie Captain America: The First Avenger. After seeing Peggy (Hayley Atwell in IRL) wear matte red lipstick falwlessly, it made me crave for the same shade and texture. I was supposed only going to get Monte Carlo and Amsterdam. Of course, being the addict that I am couldn't resist not getting the San Paulo, Stockholm and the ever popular Addis Ababa. Sol actually was quite shocked Addis Ababa was my last pick due to my penchant for pink lippies. Told her I had too much pink lippies already... then, I thought, "what the heck!" Might as well get me one and live to regret it or not get one and live to regret it!
You'll want this if you've been on a look out for a matte lip product that is easy to use and has all the shades you'd want for a matte finish.
The prixe isn't so bad either at Ph330 each tube.
Amsterdam is somewhat a brighter version of MAC Russian Red that is just amazingly eye-catching.
Addis Ababa is the brighest pink in the collection with a purple-base. This is truly a must-have.
San Paulo is a more relaxed lighter shade of pink with jsut a tinge of peach in the mix. This is a color I can wear everyday, with anything.
Stockholm is reminiscent of the coveted MAC Peachstock and gives that sweet nude effect for any look, but most especially for smokey ones.
