NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen (Review)

My previous post talked about the color of the year 2015 where I share some lipsticks that embodied the shade of Marsala. Last Christmas I was beyond lucky when my BFF Shiela got me one of my dream lippie. She gave me something from NYX Cosmetics.

NYX produced a line of products which I absolutely adore for so many reasons. I couldn't be happier receiving my friend's gift as I do not need to buy one for myself and we have matchy-matchy lippie too.  My friend got me the NYX soft matte lip cream in SMLc20 Copenhagen.  I've read so many good reviews about the product before, so you can only imagine my excitement as I first tried it on my lips.

I'm so glad that the product didn't disappoint me and I'm just so proud to own it that I have to share to you my thoughts in a short review.

Product Description:
Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.
PACKAGING
The lip cream didn't come in a box. It is simply wrap in a tight plastic seal which is really good because it lets you see the color of the product directly. A tube similar to the usual lip gloss products that we see contained it. It also comes with an applicator which is obviously used for application. I also love the fact that the product's ingredients and manufacturing details are all written on the tube. It makes me feel secured that the product i am using is 100% safe.

SWATCHES
I took two photos at the same time after I swatch the lip cream just to see how they would looked like in different light. (See photographs below for comparison) As you can see, the color is bold under different light with or without a camera flash. It looks bold as it is and that makes me feel that it is highly pigmented.

PRICE
NYX is selling their lip creams for only $6.00 ( 269.83) You may purchase the product on different NYX Cosmetics outlets but if you are buying from different sellers, of course the price may vary.

To sum up my thoughts about the products, I created a list of its pro's and con's.

PRO's:
- available in various shades (has more than 10 other shades available)
- smells REALLY great ( the lip cream smells exactly like a butter!!!)
- long lasting ( it could lasts for 5-7 hours w/out any re-touch)
- matte but moisturizing at the same time (it never made my lips feel dry)
- very pigmented color ( a single swipe from its applicator is enough to cover your whole lips)
- good packaging
- affordable 
- colors could be a dupe for high end lip products

CON's:
- a little hard to apply ( without right hand control, the application could be messy)

Reading the product description, I must say that the product lived into its claim. I am very satisfied with it and I'd be more willing to buy another lip cream from NYX and try the other shades. Have you tried or heard about this product guys? What do you think about this review? Let me know on the comment section below. I hope this review helps if ever you are looking for a new lip product to try this year.

love lots,
Tin

  8. Wow, Tin, you look amazing in that color, it suits to you a lot :) I have never tried this brand (and I think that it isn't available in my country...), but if I'll have opportunity, I'll definately try, because I see that it has a lot of pros in your opinion. Take care, Tin!

  9. This is great! I really want a dark shade lip product but am too afraid to buy one as most I see are quite expensive. I might try this one as it is affordable. If I end up not liking it, it won't be a heartache. Haha! :) Thanks for the review!
