Review | NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague

I am pretty sure everyone has tried the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams by now. They are really affordable, easy to get hold of and best of all - they come in 34 different shades so you are bound to find at least three that you like! I know the hype surrounding the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, the Kylie Lip Kits and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks is still around but you can't get those products in a UK drugstore like you can with NYX - nor are they as cheap!

About the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams:
"Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is a new kind of lip colour that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and unlike some matte lipstick formulas also moisturising."

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream I tried previously was in the shade Stockholm which is a pretty dark nude colour. I really like this lip cream although I haven't worn it quite as much as I thought I would do as my preferred matte lipstick of choice is still the Kylie Lip Kits. Well, you've got to get that cost per-wear down somehow, haven't you?! This time I have gone for a more summery, pretty shade in Prague, which is a really wearable mid-tone mauve. I actually bought this shade intending to give it to my sister but I decided I liked it a little too much to give away!

Each NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream comes housed in a little 8ml tube with the colour of the outer-packaging indicating the shade inside. The applicator is that of a doe-foot which I am coming more accustomed to the more I use liquid lipsticks. I would say it does take some getting use to when it comes to applying as it can get a bit messy when you are in a rush; I find that I have to make sure I double check it isn't all over my mouth before I leave the house as I find the doe-foot applicator quite hard to get into the inner corners of the lips.

Prague is a really beautiful shade, one of which I have been wearing a lot recently. The colour pay-off is wonderful with the lip cream being really rich in pigmentation without making the lips dry and uncomfortable. That said, it does show up a few of the dry patches on the lips so a little exfoliation beforehand wouldn't go a miss! If I were to compare it to the other matte liquid lipsticks I own, I wouldn't say it were the most comfortable to wear - as it is really creamy in formula it is fairly heavy on the lips but not so much that it were unbearable, it is just noticeable, that's all. As I have now become quite the liquid lipstick connoisseur I can tell you that this has a rather synthetic, sickly sweet scent to it, just like all of the other matte liquid lipsticks brands out there. If you like that smell then it won't bother you too much but if you are like me and really dislike sweet smells then luckily it doesn't linger on the lips for too long after application.

I find the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams to last around 4 hours on the lips which isn't the longest wearing but for the price you don't mind having to reapply it once or twice throughout the day. I would liken these lip creams to the Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks as they are both really creamy in formula and have wonderful pigmentation as well as an incredible shade selection. 

Overall, I am still really into the matte liquid lipstick hype and if you wanted an affordable brand to turn to which you can find really easily in drugstores and online, the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are definitely the brand to turn to. With an incredible selection of lip colours to choose from which are creamy in consistency and are rich in pigmentation, at £5.50 each you need to try at least two!

  6. I have the shade Athens and I really don't like it, it's not opaque at all and I find it really drying. Maybe it's just the shade!
