Lips That Stick Around: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

I was in Ulta(surprise surprise) and wanted to try something new. I heard good things about the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams so picked up Copenhagen and Transylvania.

The main thing I took away from NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Cream is that it lasts a long time. I put it on, went about my day and when lunch came I could see that the product wasn’t transferring to my food or cup the way lipsticks usually do. This was a huge plus because it’s so annoying to meticulously apply product to your lips only to have it get all over everything.

The minor transference of color I did experience is probably an indicator of how the formula dries on your lips. I guess it reminds me of what a stain should be. With other stains I’ve tried one has to go through this progression of the sheen in the formula leaving the lips before you get to the stain. Since the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are truly matte you skip this part.

Since it is matte there may be concerns about it being drying. For me I usually know something is really drying when I’d rather start over instead of simply reapply the lip product on my lips. I was able to do a minor touch up with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream and that’s probably a testament to how it adheres to the lips.

While I was on Twitter talking about the product a friend told me that she likes to put another color, Amsterdam, over her red lipstick to keep it in place.

I haven’t tried this but it totally made sense because of the staying power of the product on my bare lips.

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream comes in 22 colors retails for $6.00 and can be found where NYX products are sold and online.

  1. I love their matte lip creams. Probably my favorite drugstore lip product. I have Cannes and am obsessed with it. I really like Copenhagen on you. May have to pick that up on my next Ulta trip!

    1. Thank you for the compliment! I feel like I’m slowly becoming obsessed with mine too. I picked up Monte Carlo and Morocco a few days ago. I got my eye on Amsterdam next. I hope you like Copenhagen.

    1. You’re right about them getting dry. I think that’s why I like them on top of lipsticks instead of alone. I hope you’re able to try Transylvania soon. Thank you for the comment.

  2. Just picked up Transylvania and Copenhagen since I don’t have any dark lippies in my collection. Might grab Monte Carlo, Amsterdam, Addis Ababa, and Ibiza if I like the formula 😀
