NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

Like with the NYX Butter Gloss, I originally purchased the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm during Black Friday last year, and a while later I decided to purchase another shade in Copenhagen.

Stockholm is a light peach shade and Copenhagen is a plum shade. Both shades have great pigment and a nice vanilla scent. The lip creams are like a liquid lipstick in that they apply liquid and dry matte. The lip creams apply smoothly and evenly with the doe foot applicator, and I only need to use 1 layer for an even coat. Like the name also suggests, the lip creams feel soft on my lips. The lip creams do take around 15 minutes to completely dry matte, and during that time they can easily transfer and fade. However, once the lip creams are dry, they last most of the day without feeling drying on my lips. The only downside for the lip creams is that they are not transfer-proof because they will fade when eating or drinking, but they do leave a nice tint on the lips when they fade. The lip creams are affordable, and there are 34 shades available ranging from pink, purple, blue, orange, nude, and brown shades. I would definitely recommend trying out these lip creams, and I cannot wait to try out the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault II that I recently purchased from Ulta!

Overall, the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is affordable, long-lasting, and not drying on the lips, but it is not transfer-proof.
