NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

If you are anything like me, then I am sure that a few months ago when it was announced that NYX Cosmetic Counters were hitting boots stores, you were more than excited, to say the least. However, for those of you that aren't aware (and potentially living under a rock), NYX is an american, cruelty-free drugstore brand that sells all things beauty from an incredible range of affordable and desirable make-up (especially lip products) to nail polish, cosmetic bags and application tools. 

A few months ago, when NYX came to my local boots store, I could not resist spending money. I was so eager to try out their products, especially their Soft Matte Lip Creams (Matte Liquid Lipsticks) which are one of their best sellers, and for £5.50 each, what could possibly go wrong? After much debate about which shades to go for, I opted for shades '08: San Paulo', '20: Copenhagen' and '25: Budapest'.

These liquid lipsticks come in an 8ml tube with a doe foot applicator. The shade of the packaging is almost identical to the shade of the product itself. They have twist lids, making them easy to open and close as well as avoiding the product from drying out. They carry a sweet aroma, which thankfully isn't too sweet and are just so worth the price, I cannot stress that enough. Having said this, if you are visiting america, then they will be slightly cheaper to purchase there. The NYX website sells them for $6 each, which converts into roughly £4.82.

The first thing that I really noticed when applying these products for the first time is how much of a soft and creamy formula they have. I have said before that I often have quite dry lips but these don't feel drying at all on them. These lipsticks are thin but the pigmentation is honestly incredible, each shade shows up so well on the lips and they only need to be topped up once or twice throughout a long day. I say once or twice, because after eating I have noticed that these products fade slightly, but I expect them to. It only takes the product about thirty seconds to dry after application and it does turn completely matte as well as still being as comfortable as any other lipstick. 

Two of the shades (Copenhagen & Budapest) are fairly similar but are both gorgeous deep berry shades, perfect for the autumnal months. Whereas San Paulo is a much pinkier shade. All three of these shades work well with almost any eye-look too. Due to them being matte, I like to use matte eye-shadows with these lip products as I think that this works well for me.

Overall, I really cannot fault these products. I think they are so reasonably priced, they do their job and they are super pigmented. Of course, I have included swatches, using my Beauty Swatch Cards and from top to bottom are shades; San Paulo, Budapest and Copenhagen. I cannot wait to add some more NYX products to my collection.

Do you own any NYX products? What do you recommend?
