Review | NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

2

This is what it says on the NYX website:
Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favorite.

So, I got these because I’ve heard so many good things about them and because they’re inexpencive I thought I’d give them a try, but I have to say that these are some of the worst lip products I’ve tried so far.

Now, there are several reasons I don’t like these, first of all every shade I’ve got goes on patchy, and they immediately starts to ball up (kind of like a thick sunscreen does), and that’s not a good look.
Also they wear of way too fast when you’re drinking or rubbing your lips together, and even though they don’t cost much at all, I had higher expectations for the lasting power of these.
And lastly because they all settle in my liplines, making them look quite old, almost. Now I know that matte lip products can do that when they dry down, but none of these did dry down on me, so it was all just very weird.

However, the scent of these is amazing. They smell very sweet, kind of like a vanilla-coffee kind of a scent, and I really do like that.
And they feel very good on the lips, very velvety, they actually feel alot like the Smashbox insta-matte, which is nice.
But overall, I just can’t recommend these. I would much rather do the extra step of applying my insta-matte on top of any of my other lipsticks than to spend my money on these.
They’re just not worth it in my oppinion.

I got mine from Kicks for 79 nok a piece.
