I love the Soft Matte Lip Creams for a lot of reasons but there is one thing I really dislike about this line and that is, you look at the tube and see one color and then you open it and get something completely different.
Milan looks like a soft mauvey rose but applies much louder, like a cool subdued but still in your face hot pink. This color really isn't for me and taught me a good lesson about thoroughly researching the matte lip cream shades before purchasing.
Shade issues aside, these apply so well, dry to a gorgeous matte finish and are nearly transfer resistent, all things I adore about this line.
For an inexpensive brand, I think NYX is great quality. I was surprised by how bright pink this was, really was expecting a more mauvey-nude rose, but I didn't mind giving it a try for the day. Bigger issue for me was the matte finish, I'm just too old for it. Still, if you like a matte finish, this goes on easy and is very long wearing.
I have very pale, slightly cool-toned to neutral skin. From the packaging, this shade looked like it would be a pinkish mauve, MLBB shade. Unfortunately, upon application, it was a MUCH brighter pink than I would ordinarily wear to work/at my age. I wore it for one day and felt garish. A plus was that it was very, very long-lasting, comfortable to wear, and not at all drying; applied creamy at first and then quickly became a matte finish. Smells pleasantly of yellow cake batter and is easy to apply. Only reason I wouldn't repurchase is the color. Will definitely try other shades.
You know when I tried this on I almost jumped back from the mirror. It's garish - or so I thought at first sight. But then it grew on me.
This is much more pink and young then I would have ever thought I'd wear and the color didn't come across on the swatches her as much as I thought.
I've decided I actually really like this color. It's a fun, peppy little pink mauve on me that's different from the darker or nuder colors I'm used to.
It's a great addition to your collection if you're looking for something a little more daring :)
I bought this off amazon and is way darker then I expected its a really dark mauve pink color. would look better on someone older or darker. I wouldn't re purchase.
A gorgeous matte lipstick product in a beautiful colour. Its staying power is really good, except for the center of the lips where I find I have to reapply after a few of hours. Overall a good product that I would purchase again.
Damn i think this is my staple. I find myself reaching for this everyday! Mac's "Please Me" was my go to but not anymore! Smooth creamy application that has a lovely matte finish. Make sure to apply thinly, this stuff will cake if you dont apply it right. What a beautiful color!
I am sooooo impressed with NYX I have never used them before I am deffo digging what they have to offer. I recently reviewed the collection cream puff in cotton candy which is identical to this in colour, however this blows it out of the water. It glides on the lips and is very opaque, it's rather drying which you would expect so I just pop lip balm on before I apply this and then just top up with lip balm through the day, it's lasted about 5 hours and like last time I ate and drank even more coffee and it stuck around, would deffo recommend this, and from what I gather NYX in general!
Really digging the NYX soft matte lippies, this product is a hit with me, I own the shades Milan and San Paulo as I gravitate towards warm, pigmented colors. Really impressed with both, I'd say Milan is a perfect MLBB everyday shade that's brighter and a few shades darker than my natural lips--looks nice on my skin tone too, NC25 with brown hair and blue eyes. One of the go-to products for my daily makeup look, really brightens my face and looks polished.
The texture can be drying, I find that it requires some chapstick prior to application or it sticks to dry patches on lips, that's my only complaint. Smells good like vanilla candy and lasts about 4 hours, leaving a nice stain behind that's true to color. Don't sleep on this one!! I pray NYX never DC's this line and adds more bold shades :) will repurchase gladly.
When I first put it on it made my lips look dry and flakey so I took it off and exfoliated my lips then applied again. Its so light. Like applying mouse to your lips. It's not like any lip product ive tried.It takes about 3 minutes to dry and become matte. It didn't transfer when I kissed my hand after it dried. I think it looks better with 2 layers though because it becomes more opaque. But yes I do like it and will a few more colors. I wouldn't buy this product again only because I have so many lip products.
