NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams (Updated with Antwerp)

I'm uber addicted to the scent (love, love, love) of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, and of course the overall appeal that they evoke that I found myself getting more colors. I novelized my love for Monte Carlo here. I'll walk you through some of the new colors I added, namely Milan, Addis Ababa, Antwerp, and Amsterdam.

Addis Ababa is fuschia pink power overload. ;-D 
It's such a pretty lip color. Guaranteed Best-seller!

Addis Ababa is Pink Lips Love! ;-D
I got Amsterdam by mistake, I was hoping to get Antwerp. But lucky I got it, because this I think is another must have's when going for the perfect Snow White-ish lips. ;-D

Amsterdam is Coral Reddish. 
Monte Carlo vs. Amsterdam
Amsterdam Love. ;-D
Once you found a suitable workaround to prevent drying, chapping etc. lips with matte lippies, NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are must have's, as in! More emphasis should be given on applying a perfect lip balm  before applying the lip creams. I recommend getting a petrolatum free lip balm ala EOS caliber, so as not to compromise the lasting power of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. And voila! They're truly nice to have. I hope to get more.

Updates: October 27, 2011


On top of these colors, I also added San Paulo and Antwerp. My love for San Paulo can be found here.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream comes in Coral Pink Shade.
It took me a while to get a good try of the Antwerp shade. I have some issues on pigmentation. I'm used to wearing them over EOS lip balm, but when I did it with Antwerp, I can't get the full matte effect. I can't get it to work like how San Paulo does. My lip lines tend to be very prominent too. I can only surmise that it has to do with the formulation, the manufacturing date of Antwerp was 4/11/11, while San Paulo's 11/11/10. The color is aptly suited for spring. Oh well, since I'm living in a sunny country, it's something I can wear every time I feel like it. ;-D I'll update you if I see any improvement, overtime, I can only hope it would work as well as my other NYX Soft Matte Lippies. :-D

which do you like better? amsterdam or monte carlo?

Des said...

Hmm, at first I thought they're both Reddish, and all the same, but I think I'll still go for Monte Carlo. It's just that I was comfy wearing it even during my grocery, banking errands. When I wore, Amsterdam, and I was not that dressed up, I think, it stand out so much because it has a brighter reddish shade. :)

You look lovely in whatever lip color you try ♥ I''ve been reading your blog from time to time and your reviews make me want to try out new products.

This matte lip cream looks so lovely. I think I'd try to get my hands on a nice nude-ish shade for my lips. :)

Des said...

Awww...thanks Clair! :)

Please keep your comments coming! :) Super appreciate them! :)

Hi Emsy! I missed your concern, they really look nice without lip balms before applying. So I recommend getting a good night treatment/application of lip balm before the day so as not to used lip balm before. But if still you find it drying, you can still use a lip balm before, just make sure you used a good all natural one. :)

Hello Ms.Des, :)
I'm also getting addicted to these Soft Matte Lip Creams! I super agree with you, they're so wonderful on the lips! Thanks for giving me an idea on putting lip balm first before applying the lip cream, I better order an EOS lip balm soon. :)
I also got my NYX lippies from Digital Traincase. However, unlike you, I only got 2 SMLC shades and I also tried their Matte Lipsticks so I got 2 Matte shades.
I'm planning to buy more since I'm overly raving about these lip creams! There is so much to LOVE about the scent!
Which do you think is a better shade? Milan or Addis Ababa..? I can't pull off red and bright red shades so I'm pretty sure that Monte Carlo and Amsterdam's not for me. I'm also considering Stockholm, :)
I have Antwerp and Istanbul.. ^^,
Thanks in advance :*

Des said...

Awww... You're most welcome. :) Milan is more for everyday/anytime lip color. Addis is really too bright pick, so I have to consider other things. It's not a color that I can comfy wear going to the supermarket type errands. haha :) It must be my age too. But I'm sure it will be fine with you. :) I love San Paulo shade though, it's the go between shade between red and pink, safer, and more versatile.
