I’ve got so many nyx soft matte lip creams I thought it would be a good idea to do a post on them. I wanted them for a while but I couldn’t find them anywhere in London , I was out shopping one day and I caught a glimpse of the Nyx pop up stand in selfridges and of course had to make my way there. At the time there wasn’t many in stock so I quickly went on the Selfridges website and ordered as many as I could.
I did think that the pop up stand might only be there for a limited time and I wouldn’t be able to get my hands on them later, so I just got as many as I could. Not knowing that in a few months it would start to be sold on boot!
However I don’t regret it, I love the texture of the lip creams they really are ‘soft matte’. And the range of colours are amazing , there is a colour for everyone ! Some of the colours which I purchased I did worry that it may be abit too light / dark but I wasn’t too worried as I’m always mixing colours to achieve the shade I want. I did find that some were a little streaky like ‘Tokyo’ but nothing a little lip liner can’t sort.
The colours that are missing from my collection are Transylvania, Sydney, Buenos Aires, Morocco, Cairo, Zurich. I purely didn’t not purchase them as I thought that it would not suit me at all. In addition I thought that as ‘Transylvania’ is such a dark colour it may be streaky and it would be most visible so I wasn’t so keen on it.
My favourite colour I would definitely have to say is ‘Cannes’ , as it is more wearable on a day to day basis, and prefer wearing more natural tones generally unless I’m going somewhere. I always carry it in my bag. It’s not too light so I don’t have a washed out look, which I don’t like at all.
I am aware that Nyx are coming out with or have already come out with some more colours, which I will be purchasing too. I would like the purchase the colours ‘Dubai’ , ‘Rome’, ‘Madrid’, ‘Budapest’ and ‘Berlin’ (more brown tone lip creams).
