These are very nice. They're very cheap, smell very nice (kind of like sweet cake), and are creamy, and have nice color. I really loved the one I purchased! I bought the "Tokyo" color. I will definitely consider getting other colors in the future.
I have not ever been able to buy a matte lip color and it 1. not dry my lips out to the point that I have chapping and flakes, and 2. not look completely ridiculous on me. I wish I could be the kind of person that can wear all kinds of matte lipstick, but I'm not. I like this because it didn't do either of the above mentioned things. This didn't chap my lips and it didn't look bad on me, of course, I didn't slick it on like lip gloss either. All I did was take the applicator and dab it on my lower lip, then made a few small dots on my upper lip. While it was still damp, I smoothed it out with my lipstick brush. The color (Milan) looked good on me, and because I primed my lips before, they didn't get chapped and the lipstick stayed damp longer, giving me the chance to smooth it. I didn't like the fact that it did kind of wear off about 3 hours later (I didn't eat or drink and I didn't do much talking). Like a few of the reviewers, It didn't wear off evenly. It wore off in the middle of my lip while the outer edges still looked good. After it wore off, I used some MAC Lipglass in Lychee Luxe just on the center of my lower lip and my Cupid's bow, then blended it out. The color was just perfect and it wound up being pretty. I like this product and I do give it 4 stars. If it were to stay on longer and not fade so unevenly, then I would be hard pressed not to give it 5.
I really like this lip cream. It applies like a gloss, but has a matte finish like a lipstick. I love the matte, velvety finish of the product. However, what I do not like is the lasting product. It lasts maybe like 2-3 hours for me at most? I'm probably going to buy it anyways though. I just reapply the product and my problem is solved.
Resist the urge to apply this like a lip-gloss; it will get flaky and lose its pretty texture. Start off with a small amount. I only apply to my bottom lip and then press my lips together. Voila! Soft, pretty color!
It has this lovely soft texture, is not sticky, and the stain of its color remains on my lips for hours. Any long lasting lip color can make a dry spot look more dry, so I use a dot of Lansinoh on any dry areas.
I bought this in Antwerp, described on the NYX website as a Mid-tone yellow-toned pink -- my lips but brighter, perhaps? :)
(Side note: in L'Oreal True Match liquid foundation, I am a N1 or a W2.)
This is a very light weight lip cream that goes on smoothly and stays put. I have it in Stockholm and it is way more pink than I would have thought from the color on the website and the swatches I looked at online. It is a good product and I would recommend it but be aware that you will probably not get a good sense of the color unless you swatch it on your skin.
I bought Antwerp while jumping on the coral bandwagon last spring because I loved it on youtuber Sam/Beautycrush. It's not really working for me, though. It's a nice color but it feels too drying.
Actually, I liked everything about the application for the first 30 minutes, but it did not wear off evenly. After a long conversation with a friend, I checked my lips in the mirror and the color (San Paulo, loved it!) was bright and matte on the outer edges of my lips all the way around, but closer toward my mouth, the color was completely gone, just bare lips. I'd not had anything to eat or drink; I’d rather a product wear off evenly than grab where lips are dry and slip off completely where lips get naturally wet. I've not had a lip product do that before- though I’ve rarely worn matte pruducts.
So, a unique product and pretty initially– but funky wearability if you plan to do more than pout. Check your mirrors often with this one. Returned.
I don't like the dry feeling on my lips. I prefer matte lipstick + creamy lip gloss. I got "antwerp" and it's way too pink, not at all like the light pinky coral shade I was expecting. I got this lip cream from cherryculture at around $5 plus shipping, and I don't think it's worth the price, I've seen better lip products for much less.
I order this in Tokyo and the color is absolutely gorgeous. It's my dream pink shade....downside?
I think it breaks me out.....
It's just so sad. I love it so much and it's a great product for so many people.
I bought these in: San Paulo, Amsterdam, and Antwerp.
Here's how it started: I first got "Outlaw" Everlasting liquid lipstick by Kat Von D at sephora. It was $23 plus tax. I tried it out and it was AMAZING. However, I could just not justify spending that much on a red I would only wear occasionally. So I returned it. Then I heard about these NYX soft matte lip creams. Anyway, they are 4 times cheaper and work just about as well. I'd rather own 4 of these than 1 of Kat Von D's. However you should try those out as she is the queen of staying power...and if you are looking for a matte look that will NOT budge, go for those. For more every day wear, go for NYX (it will not last as long)
I like these better than the Kat Von D ones. Contrary what people are saying, I did not find these drying at all. They do take a while to dry down to matte though. Probably 5 minutes.
EDIT: I loveee these. They smell so good. Like sugar cookies!
