I love this! It's truly matte and I like that I can actually remove it unlike other matte liquid lipsticks. It's actually lighter when applied to the lips. The shade is a beige nude with an orange-y undertone. If I want it more nude I mix it with Cairo (a true nude) from the same line. If you are looking for a lipliner to combine it try NYX lip pencil in "Natural"

This is my perfect nude!! Since my lips are brown, I had a little bit of trouble finding something that suits me since all the lighter nudes don't look right on me. This lipstick is very comfortable to wear and doesn't transfer everywhere, but you do need to reapply throughout the day. There's not a lot of product but it's very worth it for the price.

London is a gorgeous midtone beige nude with a bit of orange in it on my Asian skintone. I love using it as a nude lip color paired with smokey eyes or anything a bit more dramatic.

I also like how the packaging reflects the color of the formula, but don't go off that alone- as previous reviewers have stated, the packaging is not an exact match.

The smell of it is so great, sometimes I just hold the tube up to my face and sniff the yummy vanilla cake-y deliciousness, haha!

Application is also a bit finicky, and I've found that unless I use a lipliner on my entire mouth and set the product with powder pressed on over a tissue, it never sets. However, I do believe the finished result is worth it, and once it's set, I can reapply chapstick/more product over it as need. Wear time is about 2-3 hours on me, which I'm fine with since it is a drugstore product.

London is the perfect "My Lips But Browner" color. Its a awesome beigey nude on my lips. i love how these lip creams smell, like cake frosting! I find they last on me about 2-3 hours while eating/drinking, as any matte product, its drying so use a balm first.

Like other posters have mentioned, with any matte lip product, you have to take care of your lips first if you expect these types of products to wear well.

I'll repurchase this shade over and over again.

This product has cute packaging and it does what I want it to do, I like it. I bought the shade London which is a great nude, actually. In natural light you can see the subtle pink tones, so it looks a bit similar to my lip color but more nude, and in indoor lighting it's this gorgeous taupey nude with no pink tones. Not too pale, so you won't get the 'concealer lips' look. I am going to love wearing this with bold eye looks (love the smoky eye right now).

It goes on creamy and stays wet for maybe 15 mins. After that point it 'dries down' but it never becomes uncomfortable on me. The best part is that once it dries down, it doesn't really transfer. I found that the color stayed put for a good four hours and then some.

So the staying power is great, after 15 mins it's a true matte, and best of all the formula is comfortable. The only complaint I have is that it accentuates dry patches on my lips after awhile. But with this shade, it's not that noticeable. Don't forget to drink water kids, keep those lips hydrated.

Edit: another complaint, after 4ish hours this starts to make my lips a bit powdery and dry. Applying chapstick was essential. But the color is still there..

Pretty coolour but it drys out my lips, and it's a neutral colour, it seems darker in the tube, I shall go for cannes next time, my desired lip crème. None can tell I'm wearing lipstick. This is a liquid lipstick, it cracks, you can see the lines. Weard, too light fo rme, too pale, Im pale, washes my skin and lip tone out. Hard to get off. Unmoiturizing highly

I really love this product. It's such a unique formula in the realm of matte lipsticks. It goes on smooth like a gloss and dries beautifully. It stays for a decently long amount of time. I have medium-medium dark skin, when I wear it by itself I feel that it washes me out. It would work if I had a full face of makeup and wanted to emphasis my eyes. But for everyday when I'm just wearing mascara and a lip product, this is not the best. What I do love doing in order to incorporate it into my daily look is mixing it with some of my bright lipsticks. It mutes the color down a bit and adds a pretty matte finish! It's great especially with pinky/red colors LOVE it turns the color to a dusty rose. Definitely recommend this product because it's so versatile. I'm excited to try more colors!

this is my everyday lip product. I love my dark nudes, and it really is the kind of 'your lip shade but better' lip cream for me. It glides on softly and it does not dry your lips out even if its matte. It does not have strong staying power, but enough for me to love it. <3

The Soft Matte Lip Creams are very nice on the lips but keep in mind they are MATTE products, they will not be moisturizing and they are not like balm. That being said, unlike most matte products, this doesn't dry the lips, in fact, after it dries it feels like nothing is on the lips not balm, not gloss, not a drying lipstick. If anything it almost feels like a cream lipstick. Very lightweight and long lasting. I wore each of these for a full 9hr work day and only had to reapply after lunch. One of the best parts is, unless you are eating or it isn't dry all the way yet, it doesn't transfer. That's right mess free kisses and ring free coffee mugs.

Now on to the color London.

This is a very nice light to mid-tone nude with a slightly warm but mostly neutral undertone. Personally I enjoyed it. I think its a shade that everyone can wear.

Give it a try they are only $4-$6
