Monte Carlo is my new fave red!
Monte Carlo: dark blue-red
Butterly Nude: peachy coral
Finish: soft luminous matte
This lip cream just glides on and feels like nothing! And the soft, non-flat finish is simply gorgeous for anyone.
Smells like super sweetened vanilla like their lip glosses. Stays on for an impressive amount of time too.
I love this! It's so pigmentated, and applies so softly. It stays put for a long time and does not dry out my lips.
the only drawback is, the limited range of colours.
I love NYX's Soft Matte Lip Creams a lot due to the price, applicator, easy to apply in a hurry, great for touch-ups during school or work, and shade versatility but the formula is terribly drying. Even with a lip balm or lip liner underneath, I can't help but to envision my lips as a crackling dry desert. I've approximated that the lasting power of NYX's Soft Matte Lip Creams are about an hour and a half on me, even with prepped lips. I'm satisfied with these, just not with the dryness or lack of lasting power. I will continue to try these until I find better lip creams.
Nothing fancy about it's packaging, but a good product. Makes my lips look deceivingly full whilst giving a nice pop of color.
Smells nice, like icing/cake batter. If you don't like your lip products having strong scents this baby is not for you.
Formula is drying. Trick to this product is to layer it over some Vaseline or it will dry out your lips like crazy.
Not much to say about the applicator, basic lip gloss applicator.
All in all a good product. Only gripe I have with this is the staying power, I find myself having to reapply this every couple of hours.
I brought two of these lip creams because the colors looked so beautiful and they were. However, the smell and feel on the lips were just terrible. It smells fake and plastic and it feels like vinyl on the lips. Plus they look too matte. I know that it says matte in the name but they made my lips look really dry. Not for me
I was soooo excited to try this. So imagine my surprise when it came out of the tube and walked right into every line on my lips, looking a goopy mess, never dried or set, and worse, made my teeth look unbearably yellow [the hot pink color. Cool fuschias look great on me/with my teeth]. It is pigmented but not enough to go on in one opaque swipe - I never really got an even application of color, and although the formula smells delicious [yay! more chemicals/synthetics!], it is coming out of the tube GOOPY and clumpy and disgusting.
In short, a disappointment, and not an experiment I'll shell out good money repeating.
so moisturizing, smells great and very long-wearing!
I bought it in Antwerp and i love it! It is not drying at all compared to other MAC Matte Lipsticks. The pigmentation is beautiful, and it lasts a really really long time! Only wished it had more colour selection. After this, I am going to buy all their colours!
Bought this in monte carlo and love this matte red. Just drying, like most mattes are but applying a balm would resolve this.
This is a great alternative to matte lipsticks if you have dry, flaky lips like mine and don't always have the time to exfoliate in between applications. It's more moisturizing and doesn't dry out my lips as fast. The creamy, but not gloppy, formula is well pigmented and easier to apply than lipsticks since there is no tugging on the lips, which can cause more flaking. I would wear this over a thin layer of chapstick or balm that isn't too slippery to keep the matte finish but it lasts even longer with a coat of lipgloss over it. And it's dirt cheap. They should make more colors.
