NYX - SOFT MATTE LIPCREAM





NYX is a brand that isn't really available in Belgium (yet!), so when in London I had to pick up some of their already iconic Soft Matte Lip Creams.

These lip creams come in so many different shades and are all named after different cities. I went for Cannes, Istanbul, Milan and Ibiza!

When you apply the cream it will take around 30 sec to get that perfect matte lip color. As the name says they are matte lipsticks but the formula isn’t drying at all! On the contrary my lips still feel soft after applying the lip cream. For staying time I put them to the test as we had a 5-course meal at ‘The Typing Room’ planned that evening. Guess what? After 5 courses and some glasses of wine, the lipstick was still there. Now that is something not many brands can achieve!



 
I definitely recommend these lip creams, they are highly pigmented, not drying and have a great staying power. But best of all they aren’t pricy! I payed only £5 a piece in the UK. In my opinion a real bargain.
A small side note: Please make sure to scrub your lips before applying (any) matte lipstick, as this will look that much better on soft/smooth lips. 
Great news for my Belgian readers: A NYX store will open in Ghent this June 2016. 
If you would like to try NYX you can order them online at: Feelunique, Douglas or Boots.
Have you ever tried any NYX product? I'm really eager to try other NYX cosmetics after this great experience.
