Review: NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

Since Boots introduced large, wonderful NYX Cosmetics stands into their stores I have become pretty consistent in purchasing their products, it all started with this haul. My NYX collection is definitely growing and as you can see from this post it includes a few of their much loved Soft Matte Lip Creams.

The first shade I purchased was Cannes (19), a gorgeous nude mauve shade that is wearable with any make up look, night or day. I later picked up two different shades, San Paulo (8) a gorgeous deep pink -red and Instanbul (06), the perfect pretty pink, so overall I have three very different colours each perfect for different looks and as the shade range is soooo huge I am finding it hard to resist picking up every single one.

After using Cannes for the first time I was definitely impressed, it applies smoothly and sets to matte quite quickly but still feels soft and moisturising on the lips, even when building up the coats - which to be honest isn't really needed as the pigmentation is fantastic. I do worry that matte products will dry out your lips and even start to crack but these product don't do that at all, they are the perfect mix between a gloss and a lipstick. These creams are a lot better than I expected for the fantastic £5.50 price tag, they last a good amount of hours and are just perfect in every sense.. I just need more.

Have you tried any of these NYX lip creams?
