NYX – Soft Matte Lip Creams

NYX - Soft Matte Lip Creams

It’s very clear to all beauty lovers out there that 2016 was the year that the liquid lipstick became hugely popular within the makeup world. There were so many different brands from low to high bringing out their own versions of this different twist on the standard lipstick. The NYX soft matte lip creams for me were by far the firm favourite in not on my own collection, but probably a lot of other bloggers and makeup fans too. Not only are these drugstore favourites super affordable, but they’re also one of great quality with good pigmentation, long staying power and maintain comfort on the lips, as well as showcasing a generous matte shade range. 

When NYX first landed in my local Boots, the first ever products I tried from this brand included two of the soft matte lip creams. The first shade was Prague – a pink toned berry colour that’s perfect for wearing all year round. This one is definitely for those who want to be bold and daring. It’s perhaps not suitable for everyday wear, but it’s great for special occasions and times when you just want to go out all. The pigmentation of this one is exceptional and achieves that matte effect. Like all the creams it also feels so creamy yet light on the lips. 

The next shade I picked up in that same haul was Sydney another bold yet bright lip option. This one is definitely more suited to the spring/summer time with the soft pink lavender undertones it has to it. It’s such a girly kind of shade that is probably won’t suit everyone’s tastes or colouring, but once you’ve fallen for it and it suits you too, you know you won’t be able to stop wearing it. The two only two slight criticisms I have for Sydney is that the pigmentation can be slightly off, which is what I have found for some of the more lighter and darker shades of the soft matte lip creams. And for this reason, it can also dry a little patchy so it’s definitely one you’re going to do need keep topping up on throughout the day.

NYX - Soft Matte Lip Creams Swatches

And the last three within my collection happen to be the three I recieved for Christmas from my parents. I have had my eye on Transylvania for the longest time. It’s one of the darkest, if not the darkest shade within the soft matte lip cream range. It’s a super dark plum colour that looks amazing during the autumn/winter season. It’s also one of those bold and daring lip choices. Even though it has a great pigmentation, you definitely have to still build it up and perfect it to achieve a flawless finish. I just bloody love this one and going to get as much wear out of it as I can within the next few weeks before the Spring arrives.

The final two shades I also got for Christmas were more nude colours from the range. The first being Cannes a shade that I fell instantly in love with as soon as I put it on my lips. I was actually  a bit worried before that it would not suit me, but however wrong was I? Cannes is a peachy brown coloured nude that would suit pretty much everyone. It’s just so pretty and wearable. You could get away with wearing it for both during the day and at night. The pigmentation of this one also reminded me why I fell in love with these in the first place. It’s a must have purchase!

The second nude in my collection is Abu Dhabi a more browny toned nude. I was also worried this one would wash me out. I always find nudes a bit hit and miss, but like just like Cannes, Abu Dhabi proved me totally wrong. It’s such a lovely shade that again anyone could pull off. A great colour to wear everyday and with more relaxed makeup looks. Or if you want to keep things more relaxed on the lips and keep your eyes the star of the show, then Abu Dhabi will do exactly that. 


What shades are your favourite from the NYX soft matte lip creams? Do you have any of these shades?
