    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream:

    I'm not sure why I just tried this product but thanks to a blogger, she swatched a color I loved and needed to try it out (Cannes). The consistency feels super good and lightweight with a mousse texture. It dries to matte but doesn't feel too dry and still looks great. I'm so obsessed with this product...I want all of the colors!!

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream:

    I got this in a few colors: Athens, Stockholm, Tokyo, and Sydney.
    It is a bit tricky to use, but I found that if you put on with a light hand, then blend out/in with your fingers, after a minute or so, it will set in to not only a matte finish, but a very natural texture. However, it ends up sheering out the color.
    I was trying to find a light color for spring that wasn't too "Barbie". I love Athens for that very natural look, but in fact, Tokyo is really nice when sheered out (even though it looks VERY Barbie to me in the tube).

    If you apply too much, it definitely separates.

    It did not last all day, but it lasted longer than I expected (it survived through the morning coffee, but it was gone after lunch). I think this, again, has to do with not applying it too thickly.

    Also - I always let some moisturizer sit on my lips while I do the rest of my make-up before applying (I find it drying).

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream:

    Be sure to buy in-store and test it out. Color seems to be brighter than it appears. Application doesn't go on evenly, but then again,you are applying with a sponge tip. Product was very creamy and I enjoyed the smell (reminds me of cake icing). I did have to re-apply twice (after lunch and dinner). Other than that it did an okay job. I recommend applying a lip primer before use.

              Don't purchase the matte creams they have no pigmentation and wear off way to easily.

              I absolutely love this product! I bought two of these so far and I'm in love! I like that it dries and WILL NOT budge. I can drink my drink, eat, and it stays put! It can be slightly drying tho, so you could put a bit of gloss on top. Will buy again and again!

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream:

              I was really really excited to try this product after trying the Butter Gloss and falling in love. However, I was really really let down with this product- even after reading/watching good reviews. I tried wearing this two ways. First, I tried just the product on my bare lips. It instantly caked into the creases of my lips and did not cover evenly. Secondly, I applied chap stick first and then put the product on and it was at least better looking enough for me to leave the house.

              It's funny actually, I was going to the grand opening of the Ulta near my house. I was wearing this product the whole time. When I got into my car, I checked in my mirror and was MORTIFIED. The product had clumped and sunk into ALL of the creases in my lip and also built up around the inside of my lip. There I was, in an Ulta, with ridiculous looking lips.

              I bought the color "Buenos Aires" after seeing it on a YouTube channel. The color really is beautiful and the texture of the product is good, but the quality is just awful in my opinion. I will be returning this for sure and will stick to the Butter Gloss for now.

                I have this in several shades. I love that each color is bold. It goes on smooth and dries matte. Last a long time.

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream:

                  Color: I got Monte Carlo. I thought it would be a deep red but it leans a little pink. It's still a very pretty color and I wasn't unhappy with it on that note.

                  Smell: A little plasticky to me. It isn't enough to bother me but I am not particular sensitive to fragrances so it's something to consider if you are.

                  Application: Color payoff was good and the applicator makes it easy to get a good shape. Initial texture feels almost powdery. LATER though, the texture changes completely and it gets fairly sticky.

                  Wear: If you eat/drink anything ever, it will disappear. Like instantly and in the most unattractive way possible. I highly recommend you wear this when you know you will be able to reapply easily.

                    I bought this in Translyvania and I'm having a hard time getting it to stay even and have clean edges. Should I try a lip primer and a dark lip liner?

                      Transylvania is a matte deep violet perfect for darker skin tones, or for those with lighter skin tones who are seeking a dramatic strong lip.

                      A:

                      Due to its semi-sheer glossy formula, all shades are lovely across all complexions! Try Tokyo (Item #:2226191, bubblegum pink), Istanbul (Item #:2226185, clean pink), Buenos Aires (Item #:2268519, soft coral), or Antwerp (Item #:2226184, mid-toned yellow-toned pink), which are especially flattering for fair-to-light complexions.
