NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM ISTANBUL // SWATCH AND REVIEW

5:16 PM

Hi Lavs!

Another review here :)
This is my first time reviewing a lip product, so hopefully I do a pretty okay job! *fingers crossed*
Okay, if you are looking for a matte lip color that still looks natural, this might be the perfect review for you! :)

Here is the star of this post


PRODUCT & PRICE

I believe there are 22 shades of this product which ranges from a really bright red, pink, until a really neutral brownish nude. Unfortunately, in Indonesia there are only we only have 7 color selections (if I'm not mistaken). I actually fell in love with the color antwerp, but it's not available here :/ Bought this for IDR 95000.

SHADE
Then, after trying to swatch other colors that are available in the store, I decided to buy this in the shade Istanbul, which is a pretty light pink color with a cool undertone. 


This color is not a really nude color for my lips, like you can see that I'm using some lip product, but it's not too overwhelming as well, still  suitable for everyday use :)


APPLICATION
When you apply this thing, it feels like a real cream (and it smells like vanilla too! :p) 
The formula is thicker compared to a lip balm but it's still super easy to apply compared to other usual matte lipsticks (which usually quite a struggle to be applied, some of them are just really dry and tend to drag your lip!).
If you use a thin layer, it dries in around 2 minutes I believe. And the finish is, a truly matte finish.
After you use it, your lips can feel a little bit dry, so be sure to apply your lip balm afterwards.

The applicator of nyx soft matte lip cream is a doe foot applicator



STAYING POWER
Longevity is not that amazing though, 
Once it dries, it will last through drinking water, soda, or anything in general.
But once you eat something, I do think re-applying this product is a must
It fades beautifully though, not blotchy or anything like that.

OVERALL
Overall, I think this is good for someone who wants a matte lip product which is easy to apply
Not sure if I'm going to buy this again though, since I want to try a lot of different lip products. 
And the matte finish is not something that I want to use every single day since it can look quite flat on your lips. 
So… that's all lavs! Hope this review was helpful :)



Any lip product recommendations?

    Oh and I recommend Dearberry Flirt Lipstick! It's pigmented and not too expensive. If you love pink, you'll love the packaging. I have a review on my blog if you're interested ^_^ http://blamethestore.wordpress.com/2013/03/20/review-dearberry-flirt-lipstick-in-02-italian-rose/
    Or if you prefer a more sheer one, they have the Lip Service lipstick :D
