NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream Review and Swatches

 I recently heard about a website called beautyjoint.com from a fellow beauty blogger, where they sell NYX Cosmetics at a discounted price. I figured I would put in a small order just to try out the new matte lip creams. I received my lip products so fast, only 2 days after I had placed the order. I only bought 2 out of the 11 colors available, just in case I hated them.


Here is how the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are described:
It's not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before. It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte. These long-lasting lip creams come in 11 different colors that will be sure to keep your lips moisturized and colorful!

 My Review:
 Every time I try and wear a matte lipstick, my lips look super dry and dull with the color looking awful. These matte lip creams are seriously amazing. They go on really smooth and they are even moisturizing. I know, it's hard to believe but it's true! Tokyo was a little bit too light for my skin tone, but I use a gloss over. Milan is the perfect pink for me, without looking too over the top. I can wear Milan any time of the day or night. I love it so much. They both lasted throughout the day with only one touch up. I am definitely going to buy more from Beautyjoint. 

Hope you found this review helpful in some way!

  1. From the description, these sound (and look) a lot like Fyrinnae Lip Lustres- which I don't currently see on their site. They were less than $5 and came in tons of shades- plus, at this point I'd much rather give Fyrinnae my business. Have you tried the Lustres? Wonder how close they really are...

  2. Awesome! :3 There's a little beauty shop here that sells a lot of nyz but I get iffy sometimes....since I found an eyeliner that was AGES old. Mm...maybe I'll give this site a try one day. I would love to get the Tokyo. :)

  3. I've placed an order for these in Addis Ababa & Antwerp and I can't wait to receive them so I can blog about them too! They sound right up my alley as I don't generally like matte lipsticks as they make my full lips look totally dry :S
    Thanks for posting the swatches too, Milan looks nice, I'm wondering if I've chosen the right colours ;)

  9. I haven't tried the lip lustres from Fyrinnae. I also wonder if they are almost the same thing. Hmm.. What other products do you recommend from that company? I have never tried anything from them. Any suggestions would be appreciated! :)

  11. I wish this website was available in the UK! These shades are stunning and I'd love to use them, your review makes them sound so excellent.

  12. i have two of these and i love the pigmentation of them, but for me it was the opposite, my lips got super dry after about 15 minutes, i'm thinking a gloss will help for future wear :-/
