NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Collection

Since NYX became a lot easier to get hold of in the UK people have been going crazy for them. I still find there to be a massive crowd whenever I go to one of the stands in Boots. One of the stand outs is the Soft Matte Lip Creams and i've started collecting a few shades. I was going to hold off on doing a collection since there's still a few shades I have my eye on but I still thought it would be useful to do now.

I really do love the packaging of these lip creams. It's so simple but you can tell which colour is which and the shade of the tube is actually a good match to the colour of the product. Each shade is also named after a city which I think is a really nice, unique idea. They also come in over 30 shades so there is so many to chose from.

The applicator is also really great. It's a sponge tip which helps give an easy application and even with the darker shades you can get a neat edge with it. The formula is matte but the texture is creamy so it goes on easy and feel comfortable on the lips. This is why I love them so much since they feel nice on the lips but still give a nice matte finish. The wear time is also good. I get about 4 hours before I have to reapply, even longer with the darker shades.

The shades I have definitely lean on the pink side so I think I will be branching out and getting some deeper plum shades. I have my eye on Copenhagen at the moment. The first shades I got were San Paulo and Antwerp which when swatched do look similar but San Paulo is a deep plum pink where as Antwerp is a vibrant coral pink. The shade i've used the most is Istanbul as it is the perfect, wearable pink for my skintone without being too pale. The latest addition was Stockholm which is very nude but almost has a peach undertone which makes it very wearable. 

Every time I go to the stand I find another shade so I can definitely see my collection growing even more. I would highly recommend checking them out if you haven't already since they've become my new favourite lip product. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams retail for £5.50 each. 

Have you tried these? What are your favourite shades?
