I'm undecided on my love for the packaging only because I have not reached the end of my tube. The product itself takes a bit getting used to it but once you do, you'll love it! The color looks great on my NW25 skin but I can see how it wont flatter other skin tones. I love it because despite being a nice matte finish, it's not drying. I keep this particular color in my bag and I work it with either a neutral look or a nice smoky eye.
It takes me a while to finish a lip product because I love juggling through all the colors, but this flattering coral pink lip cream took a lot quicker to finish than I would have liked it to. It has a nice creamy texture that turns matte once you apply it, but not in that drying way you get with certain lipsticks. Some people might be turned off by the smell, but I personally like it a lot and reminds me of cupcakes?
I've been using it almost daily since I've bought it and is definitely going to be on my to-buy list again.
I rediscovered this product and finally learned how to apply it properly this time. I used to hate this because it can be really drying and it the scent is just weird. Overall i love this product and the price is awesomely cheap!
If you have yellow undertoned skin and you're looking for the perfect baby pink lip colour, this is the lip cream for you. I usually look better with more coraly or orange lip products, but this is truly a great pink for me! I love how it looks effortlessly beautiful and brightens up your makeup. It definitely deserves more love than its current rating (compared to other colours)
With regard to the NYX Soft Matte Lip cream, I like it a lot in general (less dry than a lipstick, less weird than a lip gloss), even though it could be a bit drying on the lip than a lip balm. But just slap a sheer moisturising product underneath (or a pink lipstick) and you'd be good to go!
I would love to try out other colours but I wouldn't mind coming back to this!
This is a great product for its price point. I have to say this: I am not much of a lip color person. I think lip colors are sticky and high maintenance for the most part. I bought this on a whim in Antwerp because I needed a color close to my actual lip color, and this seemed pretty close. It's like my lip color except better x10! I don't find it too bright, and it compliments my skin perfectly. The texture was really creamy, and it acted more like a stain than anything really. A stain that lasts about 2 hours, eating and drinking included. I found it a little drying, which is why I took off one lippie. I put a little Smith's rose salve on before applying it the second time, and it looked much better, though the wearing time was a bit shorter. Overall it is definitely something I will be buying in multiple colors in the future.
Love, love this soft matte lip cream! The color is a flush of pink in coral base. I like that I could wear this color everyday, highlighting luscious lips, without making a dramatic statement. You can wear it with a smokey eye to offset the usual nude lipstick pairing. It is really easily to apply this lip cream perfectly to the lips with doe foot application. Finish is matte but moisturizing.
The scent is a soft vanilla flavor that fades within 10 minutes. It smells like baked goods and cake batter. The lip cream lasts about 2-3 hours without application. The only CON being that it fades away in patches, leaving creases of color on your lips. Not a big deal as you can always reapply.
Overall, I loved this product so much that I went and bought another color. I don't know if I will repurchase this exact one in the future, as it lasts a long time. I have been wearing it randomly within the past 1.5 yrs. It will probably last me many more.
This is my favorite lip color I have right now. It's a really pretty coral color with a matte finish. I like the little brush better than actually using lipstick I think it gives you better precision. It goes on very smoothly I didn't find it cakey at all. And it smells lovely. Overall I love this product and I would repurchase.
My lips are very pigmented to begin with and this shows up a medium pink on me. I think it's very flattering; not pastel and not too bright. The only thing that bothers me is it won't seem to completely set. I bought this in Amsterdam too and I don't have a problem with that one. Antwerp gets a bit tacky, but doesn't dry all the way. It's not goopy or sticky, just a big grabby. Overall, I really like this.
I love love love this colour! It's like my favorite nude and my favorite coral had a baby. I could wear this color everyday. I also love the matte finish. I find the application to be easy and the wear is light and comfortable. It has a very soft pleasant scent, that fades in a few minutes.
What I don't love about this is it doesn't last very long on me at all (2-3 hours tops) and it fades in a patchy way, leaving my lips looking a little bit dry. Also, the tube didn't last very long for me. But overall, I love it! I'm repurchasing it for sure.
I decided to pick up Antwerp, as it looked like a pretty colour for my skin tone. Antwerp is a pinky, coral shade and very pigmented. It has a vanilla scent to it, which didn't bother me as it was subtle. I'm not keen on the scents that MAC lipsticks have!
I think this shade will look different on different skin tones, because on me, it looks like a soft coral but i think on a fairer person, it will show up much more vibrant.
It comes with a doe foot applicator, so it's easy to get the product out but also apply it precisely to the lips. When applied, it has a slight sheen to it but after a bit of time, it appears more matte and opaque on the lips without that dry look! This will go patchy if you apply too much product, as it is quite opaque.
Once it dries, it doesn't budge! Even having a drink, there is no mark left on the cup! This stays put for about 4-5 hours on my lips, but i think if you are eating or drinking, chances are some of the product will come off slightly. I do find that it does fade unevenly, so you do have to be careful if you are having a heavy meal!
Overall, i do think this is great value for money, however i believe the Collection Cream Puffs retail for £2.99, which is slightly cheaper than the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. The other thing that i have mentioned before is that you can only purchase it online, so sometimes it is very difficult to get an idea of the shades.
I prefer this product more for the summer months, purely because my lips don't get as dry and i think this shade fits in perfectly for this time of year.
