Picking shades whilst shopping online is never the easiest task; especially when there's so many shades to choose from. I ended up playing it safe and going for two pink shades. One peachy and one a deeper pink. The packaging is very similar to other matte creams i've tried.I always like when the shades matches the tube which makes picking out the shade you want easy if you have a few different colours.
The first shade I got was Antwerp which in the tube looks like a peachy pink but when you apply it is a lot brighter and even closer to a hot pink. The is the shade i've had the least wear out of as I think it's more of a Summer shade. The other shade San Paulo is a deeper pink which i've really been liking. Again, it is a little bright but I still find this very wearable during the day.

The name is very fitting for these. They're creamy which gives an easy application. They're opaque and it doesn't look patchy as you apply it. After about 5 minutes they set more matte which makes them long wearing. They feel comfortable on the lips and last really well. Even after drinking and eating you can still see the colour on the lips. There was some slight fading but nothing overly noticeable.
I've loved this formula from other brands and these are no different. The best thing about these is there is so many shades to choose from. My guess is the darker shades are more long wearing, however I definitely want to pick up some more neutral shades.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream retails for £5.50.
