NYX's Soft Matte Lip Cream

Subscribe to The Daily Swatch
I really love NYX. I find that sometimes they can be an affordable alternative to MAC, and the quality of NYX's products is amazing!

One of their newest products is the Soft Matte Lip Cream. I purchased four of them from Beauty Joint for $4.50 each.


The packaging reads: "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 matte."


That is definitely an accurate description of this product. Additionally, I would say that although it is not smudge-proof (and will wear off throughout the day), it does leave a tiny bit of stain on your lips so you're not totally left without colour when it wears off naturally over time.

One problem I have with this product is that it is really difficult to judge the real colour of each Lip Cream as the packaging is not clear and therefore doesn't show the true colour of the product through the package. Photographing the product also does not provide a true representation of its colour, so it would be best to try to find these in a store and test them out. However, if you live in Canada like I do, this is nearly impossible as very few places carry this brand.

Here are some swatches of the ones I purchased:

The first thing I noticed about this product when I tried it was the smell. It kind of smells like vanilla icing! It has a very nice texture, kind of like a mousse mixed with a cream. It eventually dries to a matte finish and is really easy to re-apply throughout the day.

The size of these Soft Matte Lip Creams is about 3.5 inches in height so they are great for travel and carrying around. 

There are only 11 colours available at the moment and I really hope they come out with more soon!
