I love NYX makeup a little too much, and thanks to it's superb quality and price, I am always looking online through their vast collection of products and makeup tools. The proud owner of several NYX products, I have to say that the items I currently love the most from their brand are their Soft Matte Lip Creams, due to their amazing colour collection and low price which makes them a fantastic alternative to some of the more expensive lip options out there.
Today, I will be telling you all a little about my NYX lip cream collection which sadly only contains three products at present (although I am thinking of buying several more in future, but due to the massive choice am completely stuck with what shades to next invest in), so if any of you are interested in purchasing a NYX lip product you can get a bit of a heads up on what they're are all about....
The three beautiful NYX lip creams that I already own are Abu Dhabi, San Paulo and Monte Carlo (from left to right in the above image). I picked all three of them up at the Clothes Show in December where they had a phenomenal NYX stand, for only about £5.50 each. However, you can also find these beauties and a whole host of other NYX products on the Boots website, and also on Asos and Feel Unique too!
I decided to buy three very different shades of the lip creams to start me off with my collection, so I could see how each shade looked when paired with my rather pale skin tone. All three of the above colours work well though, and even the gorgeous red on the end fails to wash me out, which left me very impressed with the quality of these products. They are very much in the style of a lipgloss in terms of packaging, with a bottle and brush just like you would normally expect. However, just as you can probably imagine from the hinting of 'matte' qualities on the bottles, these products instead dry as you would expect a lipstick too. Don't fear though, the matte-ness of these lip creams does look simply flawless, with no hint of chapped or dried lips in sight (and the colours stay firmly in place on the lips for quite some time, which is of course, a massive bonus)!
I thought I would also swatch my lip creams to help you all see what sort of colours they actually come out like, because as we all know, bottles can sometimes be very deceiving in terms of lipstick shades.
Abu Dhabi is a rather subtle nude that isn't as dark as I was originally expecting- when I first applied this lip colour I was rather shocked at how light it actually was (I think I was expecting a dark, more Velvet Teddy-esque shade). Despite that though, I have grown to love this colour over time, and now wear it when I wish to go for a more simple, natural makeup look.
San Paulo on the other hand is quite a vibrant pink, which I haven't worn all that much since I bought it in the winter, as I think it would look a lot nice when applied in the spring and summer months. I really cannot wait to start wearing brighter pinks throughout the next few months though, so I'm sure I will eventually get my wear out of this lip colour.
Monte Carlo is probably my favourite of all three shades though- it's red tones make it the ultimate classic lip colour, that you can wear both on a daily basis or when getting a little more dressed up. I love red lipsticks, but feel that sometimes such a shade can wash me out, however as I previously mentioned, this colour does nothing of the sort which is why I love it so much!
As you can probably tell, I have nothing but a good experience using these NYX lip creams so far, and can't wait to buy more of them in the future. Hopefully, if any of you are looking to buy one of these products or were once a bit on the fence about it, you now know a little more about what you are getting after reading this post!
If you do own any of the NYX Matte Lip Creams in different shades from those I have mentioned, please let me know what they are like in the comments below!
