LOVE! Got this in "Tokyo" on a whim. Ulta has all NYX 40% off and the $3.50 off $10 can be used as well, which made this lovely flat baby pink lip color an amazing $2.50! Can't beat that with a stick! When I first put it on I was not impressed, but after I allowed the product to dry on my lips, I was sooooo happy I didn't wipe it off with my initial impression! This dried BEAUTIFULLY to a soft powdery finish and didn't have much (if any) transfer when I used a straw. Love the color! I put the Butter Gloss in "Eclair" over it and have found my new HG lip routine for spring and summer! Will definitely purchase more combos of the two products (soft matte lip cream & butter gloss)... Especially since the prices are so stinking amazing right now! Love NYX and The YouTubers who introduced me to all this! Jaclyn Hill, Casey Holmes, Nicole Guerriero
I got this in Abu Dhabi, and it's a perfect nude color for my skin tone. I LOVE the matte finish, and how the color "come out" without having to apply second or third layer as you usually do with lipsticks. The staying power is awesome, as long as you don't eat, especially anything oily. It doesn't get into the creases of my lips (those cracks when your lips are dry). Use a bit of foundation before to make it stays longer (it'll make your lips feel dry tho), and set the finish with lip balm. I WOULD DEFINITELY buy this again, antwerp and milan seems cute. It cost more in my country than in USA tho, around $9.5 in my country. But this product worth it!
All day stay! (As long as you don't eat) I am able to where this for 6hr and still looks perfect! I love all the shades. They go on smooth and creamy but latter dry to your lips and stay all day. Nice pigmentation, they are amazing.
LOVE! make sure u use a nice lip balm or else it'll dry u out. otherwise, it stays on all day comfortably. I bought every color cuz I'm absolutely obsessed!
Of them all, Tokyo seems to be the most drying =[
I love the color payoff of this! I have the shade San Paolo and its a brilliant pop of color on the lips. I love the matte finish as well
My reason for giving it a 4 is because it is a bit drying on the lips. I find that I need to lick my lips from the dryness and then my lip color starts to come off :(
Also I noticed a decent amount of color transfer from my lips to cups that I drink out of.
But for the price, I would definitely recommend this and would purchase again.
This is a very good value for the price. I have no idea what the name of the color is that I have, but I really like the product in general. It's a bit drying, but if you put on balm a few minutes before application it really lessens the drying effect. The color is fairly opaque and I like the matte finish. If you pat some balm on top after, it keeps the matte finish and it makes it much more comfortable. I love it.
Although wearing the product it does not feel drying, I realised that it actually does dry out my lips (even though it feels smooth?). Must be something in the formula. For that reason, I've moved on to the Rimmel Matte lipsticks by Kate Moss.
Just bought this online in the 3 pack; Antwerp, Addis Ababa and Tokyo. They are actually really good, I was afraid they'd be drying but not at all. The opacity is 5/5 and it is a very good matte effect. I'm going to buy their Red and Milan ones as well. Very nice product.
I absolutely love these lip cremes! They go on quite smooth (though you do need to do a couple of layers to build up the opacity), and the matte finish is subtle enough for everyday wear. The only downside is the sponge applicator, which tends to apply the creme a little streaky. Other than that, the price and colours or these are to die for - my favourite is 'Addis Ababa'.
I bought a 3 set of this on ebay and i love it ,the set i got contains the shades tokyo,addis ababa and antwerp and im wearing the shade tokyo at the moment which is a lovely bubblegum pink and i the texture is matte but not drying and the colour is very pigmented also the staying power is really good and also they smell really pretty,i would purchase again because they are affordable and are of excellent quality so are getting more than what you pay for.
This product is very pigmented, which is good, but because the product collects in the dry areas, it's very noticeable. I often have to exfoliate before using this. It doesn't smell very good either. This is a pretty decent product though, the matte-ness isnt too matte and keeps lift soft
