NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

 I've had these for a while but never got around to really using them until recently. It's really hot here and I've not been wearing much makeup except for powder, bronzer, eye-shadow and lip-balm. Everything else tends to feel heavy on my face and by the time I start to sweat it's a wrap! 

The lip creams however are perfect for hot summer days as it gives you a soft matte/ stained lips look. I have five of them: 

Stockholm: a nude/brown shade

Istanbul: a light pink shade

San Paulo: A pinky/berry shade (love)

 Amsterdam: A tomato red hade (my favourite) 

Monte Carlo: A deep blue-red (think Marilyn Monroe)

 There are tons of reviews on the web about these and I'm probably the last one on the ship to review them so I wont go into too much specifics. I love the packaging and how chic they look for the cost. What I love even more is the way they wear....they're not as heavy as matte lipsticks, they're not sticky like lip glosses and they last about 3-4 hours depending. And they smell divine!!! Like a sweet pudding or creme brulee! lol

They can be a tad bit drying after a while so I tend to layer balm underneath, blotted, a at night I pop some clear lip glass in the center to add a bit more oomph! 

Swatches are below....there are only 2 lip swatches as the others didn't come through the way I liked and were more nudey on my lips than anything else. Enjoy!
