Hey guys,

Here’s another product review! As I previously mentioned I have a lot of upcoming product reviews. This review is for NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Creams, this product is described as not being a lipgloss nor lipstick. I would describe this product as a creamy lipgloss when first applied, that dries to a matte lipstick finish. This is a very unique product, I have never used anything quite like it. Although there are “liquid lipsticks” out there, this product’s beautiful matte finish puts it in a class of its own.


Ok so I purchased this product at my local Ulta. This product retails for $6. I had a great coupon for ULTA that gave me $5 off my purchase. So I purchased two matte creams initially for $7 total; which is a great prize. I initially purchased Abu Dhabi and Monte Carlo. Monte Carlo is a deep red, it’s just stunningly beautiful and rich looking. Abu Dhabi is a rich tan color, which is the perfect nude lip color for me.

When I first used these products I was amazed at how beautiful and vibrant the colors were. The colors actually shows up on lips exactly how it looks in the tube. I was very impressed.


Due to the fact that this product dries to a matte finish, I usually moisturize my lips prior to apply this product. I lightly moisturizer because although it dries matte it does not dry out my lips at all. My lips feel smooth all day even without moisturzing beforehand.

I also use a lip liner when applying these lip creams because the colors are so striking. I line my lips with MAC’s Brick lip pencil, which a red color, when I wear Monte Carlo. I line my lips with MAC’s chestnut when I am wearing Abu Dhabi.

I do not apply a gloss over it, because I love the extremely matte lips I can achieve with this product. This product applies very creamy and smooth. It is very easy to distribute on the lips, it is not sticky or tacky at all.

Another thing I love about this product is that it does not transfer. Once it cream has dried and set it does not move. The color lasts me all day!

Overall I love this product, it became an instant favorite of mine. I have since purchased a few more I plan to collecting all of the colors.

Feel free to ask me any questions
