We’re down to the last batch of swatches from my huge NYX haul! I’ve already swatched a bunch of shades from NYX’s Matte Lipstick & Butter Lipstick/Gloss lines, and this time around I’m featuring NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Creams. I reallllly like this formula – definitely my favorite of the the three! If the Matte & Butter lipsticks have a cooler, skinner little sister, it would be the Matte Lip Cream. They literally glide on, feel so very lightweight, and aren’t drying at all! After a few minutes they dry down to a matte finish, and don’t even feel like I’m wearing anything at all. #SwatchTime!
Per usual, here are my naked lips + a swipe of EOS lip balm:
And here are the shades I’m swatching:Addis Ababa | Ibiza | Morocco | Prague | Transylvania
I like all the colors, except for Transylvania, which just looks tragic. It applies really streakily, and took multiple coats to get it opaque like this. Also, because it’s so dark, it’s very unforgiving application-wise – you have to be realllly careful with it, and it stains if you accidentally go outside the lines (like I did). To be honest, I just don’t think it’s worth the effort – I’d rather just go the lipstick + pencil route. The other colors are awesome though!
