Lips -NYX Professional Makeup -Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

on 9/18/2018 1:48:00 PM

foto

- I'm reviewing the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shades "Zurich", "Stockholm" and "Antwerp".
- I'm NC15 with light brown/dark golden blonde ombre hair and light blue eyes.

- I think warmer tones in makeup are more flattering on me than cooler tones, even though I have "cool" undertones in my skin.

Scent: Like buttercream frosting (with a hint of lipstick-y smell).

Texture: It has a kind of mousse/cream like texture, with a very slight sheen that dries down slightly and is very lightweight. It's very, very smooth and soft going on. You can barely tell you are wearing anything on your lips. It is slightly drying, since it is matte, so wear a light layer of lip balm underneath.

Color: "Antwerp" is a medium muted coral on me. It's very wearable and I wear it to work with warmer shades of eye shadow and blush. It would be beautiful with some bronzer, but you could wear it year round. It's medium coverage. "Zurich" is a light to medium warm pink nude that is very flattering. It's medium coverage. (I'm wearing it in the picture I posted, not sure why it's sideways. Sorry) "Stockholm" is similar to "Zurich" but has more peach in it, so a medium peachy nude. It's medium coverage.
How long it lasted: It lasts about the same as any other bullet matte lipstick/non-long wear liquid lipstick. It is matte so it does wear longer than a satin/cream lipstick. It's not kiss-proof, but it's not sticky/gloopy either.

I really love these lip creams! They are perfect for adding a pop of color even if you don't normally wear lipstick, since they are so lightweight.

Lips -NYX Professional Makeup -Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Lipstick- #529 Thalia

Nowadays that everything is in matte, makeup is becoming very drying. I like the matte concept but it is rough on my lips. Plus, my lips are pretty sensitive and can swell up using the cheap ones. This lipstick is moisturizing but it looks matte which makes it perfect. The shade is definitely plum and nude. It looks great with mauve blush. Happy days!

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Slim Eye Pencil -Taupe

Note: I'm not a person that likes to spend a whole lot of time on eye makeup. For years, I used just dark brown liner, but had always wanted that daytime smoky look without having to spend time blending it out. Enter this product.

This color is pale for a stand-alone eyeliner, but works great stroked over dark liner. It smudges/smokes itself. I hardly ever need to use anything to blend it, unless I really overdo it. I'm on my 4th repurchase of this super affordable liner.

It's also good for filling brows, though it veers on the warm side.

Minus 1 star because it requires sharpening.

Eye Primer -NYX Professional Makeup -Glitter Primer

i love this! just got it a few days ago for my eyeshadows that aren't glittery per se, but more shimmer/glitter particles suspended in a shadow base (think wnw's "nutty"). you know, the ones that are so ~cReAmY~ they transfer to your upper lids throughout the day? yeah, those. this seems to do a pretty good job of keeping eyeshadow stuck to it!

some notes - you can sort of feel it on your eyes, but i don't think the feeling is super unpleasant/uncomfortable and you get used to it after a few hours of wear. also, when i first got this product, i tested it on the back of my hand with various shimmery eyeshadows and found that some of the swatches without the glitter primer actually had a MORE metallic base, even if the glitter in them necessitated a glitter primer. for those it's probably best to apply once without primer, then apply the primer again on top, then add ANOTHER layer of eyeshadow so the glitter stays on your eyes all day long. so i def recommend that others with this primer test it on the back of their hand first to see which shadows can actually benefit from a primer like this.

im a big fan and would definitely repurchase if i ever ran out!
