NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

I was thinking as I was taking these photos that maybe I should save this review for Valentine’s Day, since everything is so pink and red! But I’m way too excited about these matte lip creams to save them for later! I’d been seeing these all over the place, so I just had to pick them up and see if they lived up to the reviews. Read on to see!


These are advertised as “velvety smooth shades that set to a matte finish…surprisingly durable, lightweight, and creamy.” They come in cute little compact tubes with doe-foot applicators, which I love with any kind of stain or other liquid lippie. They come in an extremely wide range of shades, with 12 new colors just added! I love that all the colors are named after cities, with I think is so cute.


I picked up the shades Monte Carlo and San Paulo, a deep, true red, and a pretty medium pink. Both are easy to apply, and the consistency is nice and smooth. Once applied, they dry evenly into a nice matte finish that lasts me at least 5 or 6 hours through eating and drinking before reapplying. I’m super impressed with the durability of these! For a $6 drugstore product, the pigmentation and lasting power are really impressive. (You can see me wearing Monte Carlo here!)

I would recommend that you exfoliate and make sure your lips are soft and moisturized before applying this, because as with any matte product it can settle if you have a lot of ridges or cracks in your lips before applying. They also have a light scent, which I enjoy, but may bother people who prefer unscented lip products.



Overall, I’m super impressed with these products, and I think they definitely live up to the hype! Would I repurchase? Absolutely, and I already have my eye on a ton more from the collection! You can get them here, or anywhere that carries NYX products for $6 each. I give these 4.5 out of 5 stars!

 What do you think? Have you tried these before? Any favorite lip stains? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Love Kiki

  1. They’re my absolute go-tos on a daily basis and, in fact, I adore this line so much that I always 2-3 new tubes on standby, just in case, you know. My faves are Sao Paolo, Milan and Ibiza. Have you had a chance to try their Liquid Suede line yet? Tea & Cookies is GORGEOUS.

  3. We have this brand here at Sephora, Kiki but I have yet to try out any of their products, but I heard good things about them. I am naturally not a gloss type of gal, so I would not usually purchase a gloss myself, unless brand pass them on to me for a review.

    But these colours do look very striking and will make an impression if one puts them on!
    Hope you are having a wonderful week, Kiki *_^
