I think I don’t need to waste time by introducing Nyx soft matte lip cream to you all as you already know everything about this range. They have very much raved and hyped products and I thought to give them a try this time. I have picked the shade Amsterdam and I quite like the concept that every shade is named after a place. So here are my views on ‘Nyx soft matte lip cream Amsterdam’.
Price: 600 INR for 8 ml (BUY HERE)
A list of ingredients is mentioned on the tube itself.
My experience with Nyx soft matte lip cream Amsterdam:
Nyx soft matte lip creams come in a cute round plastic tube and the color of the body of these tubes indicate the shade. So that’s definitely a good point. The cap is matte black in color and a soft sponge applicator is attached inside the cap. Packaging is no doubt sturdy and very much travel-friendly.
Okay, I don’t like the smell. To my nose, it is like cough syrup kinda smell and I don’t wear it regularly just to avoid the smell. Though the smell doesn’t linger after application. Thank God! The shade Amsterdam is a true bold shade of red but has a slight neon-ish tone to it. On my lips, it looks pinkish red rather than true red. Very dark skin tones may not find it very flattering, but it is suitable for fair skin tones.
The texture is very soft and velvety. It glides on the lips easily and the applicator is also of good quality. First, it gives a creamy finish which later settles into a matte finish. But for me, it doesn’t stay much. It stays on my lips for around 4 hours and after that, it tends to get patchy. It also settles into fine lines if you have very dry lips. This also doesn’t survive meal and color from the inner rims starts to fade out.
Pros of Nyx soft matte lip cream Amsterdam:
- Affordable compared to the quantity
- Very attractive and travel-friendly packaging
- The body of these tubes indicate the color of the shades
- Glides on lips effortlessly
- Applicator provided is good in quality
- Settles into a matte finish after some time of application
Cons of Nyx soft matte lip cream Amsterdam:
- I don’t like the smell at all
- The shade is not very flattering to dark skin tones
- Staying power is less compared to the other matte lipsticks
First of all, I don’t like the smell. Also, I didn’t find some extraordinary character in these. But yes there are lots of shades to choose from. Also, the packaging is really good and attractive. If you are obsessed with lip creams you can give this a try.
