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!
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.
