NYX lip creams are amazing! I bought these lip creams a few weeks ago and I wanted to try them out for a bit of time until I can write a full review on it. (And, as a side note, my life has been so super busy with academic work that I could not find the time to sit down, take pictures, and blog!)
I have two kinds. The most recent "lip creams" are the Soft Matte Lip Cream that are both, soft and matte. They have this rich buttery scent to it (like the butterscotch candies, have you ever tried those?) which some people may like, but I'm not a particular fan of food/candy smelling beauty products.
Now for those who haven't heard of lip creams from NYX, basically, they are these cool amazing rich luxurious lipstick kind lipgloss kind of lip stain that quote, "It's not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before. It's liquid lipstick that goes on with silky but looks soft matte." That embodies essentially everything that it is.
They have beautiful shades, and they are literally cream on your lips. They go on smoothly and dry without any icky stains, peels, or whatnot. The color wear is truly long-lasting, unless you rub it off or wipe it off! The colors I got were Xtreme Nude Peach Fuzz, Soft Matte San Paulo, Soft Matte Antwerp, Soft Matte Milan.
The previous edition of these soft matte lip creams were the Xtreme lip cream, which does not have the butterscotch candy scent, but more of a crayon-like smell. (Eh.) Whereas the soft matte has almost a matte tattoo like finish to it, the Xtreme one has a glossy finish. It is a bit stickier than the matte since it seems to sway more to the lipgloss kind. However, nothing compared to real lip glosses out there.
Again, all I can say are good things about them. They are also super affordable, if I am correct, $5.99 each. NYX doesn't seem to be available in just any kind of drugstore or beauty store. I know ULTA sells them, but you might have to do some search to find where they actually sell them.
Not all ridiculously expensive products are good. Likewise, not all cheap affordable products are bad! This is definitely amazing. Love the content, love the shades, and definitely love the wear.
