Are you one of those people who cannot stand lipstick, but also doesn’t like the shininess of gloss? Or perhaps you love lipstick, but you want an easier way to apply it? Or maybe you love lip gloss and the tube style, but want something more creamy and substantial. Or maybe… just kidding 🙂
Look no further than the new NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme’s. These babies, that come in 12 colors, are a hybrid lipstick/lip gloss combo.
They are long lasting and very creamy. They feel very velvety and glide on so easily.
I for one love the idea of these because sometimes I don’t want a gloss, but don’t want to deal with lip liner and all that also, which I usually have to with lipstick. So the nice angled sponge applicator that these come with is quite handy.
London is a brown/pink neutral color. It shows up slightly pinker on my lips than on my hand, which is a good thing for me. I liked this color a lot, it’s a great nude when you are looking for a more subdued look.
Addis Ababa is a very bright fuchsia pink. I had to Google this name because I had NO clue what it meant. Apparently it’s a place in Ethiopia. Now that that’s settled, I love the color! Bright, blue-based, creamy and fun. I think this is a really good pink for when you want to make a statement but don’t want your lips screaming pink. It’s bright but office-friendly still.
Addis Ababa, London
You can see how brown London looks on my hand compared to on my lips here. It looks very warm, but it’s actually kind of neutral on me.
I am really liking these, they last for at least 3 hours on me and don’t dry my lips out as much as 99.9% of my MAC lipsticks do. There are a few other colors I would love to try, namely: Amsterdam , Tokyo and Istanbul.
