Spring Favourites: NYX Soft matte lip cream in Milan



Happy Saturday my lovelies! Hope you're all enjoying a fantastic and/or relaxing weekend!
Today I want to share with you another of my favourite lip products, it's NYX Soft matte lip cream in the shade "Milan". This is not a new product, in fact it has been available for the past two years or so, and it's still available.





This product has a creamy texture and it applies with a sponge ended wand as many regular lipglosses. It has a very subtle scent, a little butter vanilla like, but nothing too strong, and once on the lips the scent fades being hardly noticeable. It is a quite opaque formula, so one small amount is enough even for my naturally pigmented lips. This product is not moisturizing, and it dries out the lips a little, so if you have naturally dry lips, this might not be great for you. I always apply some lip balm beneath the colour and the matter is solved. I like of it that it's quite long lasting, despite being a drugstore brand as it lasts a decent 6-8 hours on me, but it does not resist eating or drinking. I think this is available for around 5USD, I bought mine in Cherry Culture store.


For some strange reason this Spring I can't have enough of "matte" lips. This is so unusual for me because I'm mostly the "glossy lip" type of girl. Specially for Spring. For some stupid preconceived idea I used to think velvet textures suit better the coldest seasons. I do not know where I got that thinking, but I guess my brain makes some strange connection between "velvet", "thick clothes" and "matte shades". Whatever.


This is also a very unusual shade for me. I very rarely (read never) wear pink lips. My favourite shades are coral, intense red, wines and sometimes toasted shades. Ok, this is a more "tea rose" kind of pink, so not straight forward pink, and I guess that's why I like it so much! This baby is always in my purse!
What do you think about this product? Do you like some matte lips for Srping? Do you own any Soft matte lip cream by NYX or any other brand?
Love,
Nati

  1. I really like NYX matte creams. I've tried a couple other brands, but most are rather drying. However, Butter LONDON does have a couple matte shades (I believe Teddy Girl is one), and they are nice too.

    1. No estoy segura pero creo que hay dos tonos mas tirando hacia el beige y el tostado. La textura es agradable al principio pero luego seca un poco los labios.

    2. eso si es feo, que después se descarne es horrible, da un aspecto desarreglado cuando se ven los labios secos.

  5. Salut Nati, I love matte lips and this shade looks so adorable on you!!! How would you rate Nyx lip make-up in general? Excellent? You know I only started very recently to use lipgloss and lip paint again and wondered if you would recommend this brand - bisous

    1. Salut Christine! Thanks for your comment, I find lip NYx products are generally GOOD and some ranges VERY GOOD, I think EXCELLENT is a big word though.
      I would totally recommend this product for a daily basis, NYX are affordable & nice quality. Not the best. Very good for the price. If you want a perfect flawless look, or an ultra long-lasting power there are better brands. Hope this helped! bisous, xx
