this is the most amazing lip product i have EVER used!
i am in love. Red is my signature color and this color is on point.
it goes on so smooth, isn't drying and lasted through meals. i will buy this over and over.
Wow! Dulcecandy I believe was the blogger who clued me into this little gem, but it has gotten a bit of youtube buzz. My fear of red lips has followed me around drugstores and makeup counters as long as I remember... and this product may be my first red that I truly feel comfortable using. This red is blue undertones, it is matte and does the job of a lipstick without the nasty mess and need for lipliner. It is not a halloween red, you do not look like a clown. I wore to countless holiday paries this season and I felt comfortably fierce. I do suggest this to any other girl who is slightly afraid of red lips, you will overcome!
It smells like candy and I love it!! After one coat, the formula is glossy for about 5-10 minutes and then it dries completely matte. It is slightly drying on the lips. It usually wears well after it dries, even with food, but I've had it run on me once. The one thing I don't like is even though the color stays for several hours, it wears off in patches and I prefer to reapply after about 2 hours.
It is a bright, true red in photos but leans coral in person. I have yellow teeth and this color makes my teeth look fantastically white, which is a huge plus.
I'm a personal fan of the doe foot applicator, but that's something to keep in mind if you're not!
I would definitely re buy, though I'm still on the hunt for a true red / 50s glam lipstick.
I love the way this feels so creamy on the lips, yet it dries to a satiny finish relatively quickly. This is a great, great red. That said, it is RED. Bold. And beautiful. Makes your teeth look whiter and it stays soft on your lips for hours. I also just love the name.
This is my first ever red lipstick that i bought. And O.M.G!!! This baby is so amazing and I have to admit that it was love at first sight! I honestly didn't believe that this red would brighter up skin instantly but yet never have too much of over makeup look. As the name itself is "Matte",it's really matte lipgloss but not too dry on my lip. It's just absolutely amazing! I will definitely re-purchase and will be starting a little bit of collection for different shades! Love Love Love it so much!
I love this product. The color is a very rich red. It applies just like a lip gloss and then sets dry and matte. It can be pretty drying so I apply chap stick under it and over top after a few hours if needed. It doesn't seem to just wear off for me. I have to intentionally remove it.
Several people have mentioned it smelling like plastic. It might just be a different people, different senses kind of thing, but I think it smells like vanilla frosting and the scent wears off after a few minutes.
My first NYX soft matte lip cream was the "San Paulo" color. I love that one SO much, but have been a little disappointed with the rest of the colors from this line.
The Amsterdam color is beautiful, don't get me wrong. I love the color and the application is smooth. But what i don't like about it is the staying power. While San Paulo stains your lips and doesn't budge, the Amsterdam color comes off as soon as you touch it. I wore it out and after lunch i only had it around the edges of my lips which was super unflattering.
I would not repurchase. But definitely recommend San Paulo :)
This is a fun product to use, with a pleasant smell. When you first apply it, it seems perfect. As it dries to a matte, your lips will start flaking and the color starts fading. Some lip balm or gloss will help with the dryness.
I'm currently obsessed with this "bare faced, just a bright red lip" look for the past few months, & I first tried this after being given 1 as a birthday present. I like it for an easy, normal day look, it does not dry my lips like some matte lippies do but then again, the staying power isn't great. I prefer MAC's Ruby Woo or Stila's Fiery in times when I know I'll be eating/drinking loads & there will be piccies taken (with no time to retouch!) Still, I like keeping a tube on my purse always as a backup! This is a good "training tool" for those who want to jump into the red lipstick train.
It's okay. I use it for a bright, poppy, slightly pink red from time to time. It's nothing super special I guess, it has very little staying power and the color isn't that exceptional. Maybe I'll start using it again for a pop against all the neutrals I wear, but ehhh I probably wouldn't go out of my way to repurchase.
