It’s no secret that I probably own more lip products than Ulta or Sephora carries in store. I am attracted to lipsticks and glosses like a moth to a flame – I literally can’t stop buying them. So I am also Instagram obsessed (are you following me yet @JennySueMakeup??) and one of my favorite makeup manufacturers to follow is @NYXCosmetics.
The reason I love following the NYX account is because they are really good about featuring their fans wearing the NYX products in their selfies – and who doesn’t love seeing a product on a real person and NOT an ad?? Me me me me me!! So after #Instastalking (I’m sure that’s a thing) their account and seeing so many beauties wearing their Soft Matte Lip Creams at $6, and loving every single one, I had to go buy one for myself to experience.
Here is how the brand describes this product and whether or not I agree with each point…
- Straddles the line between lipstick and gloss. Ummm, I would not categorize this as a gloss except for maybe bc it applies kind of like one due to the stick applicator. But the finish is definitely NOT glossy. But doesn’t matter, it’s an awesome lipstick.
- Creamy lustrous formula applies like silk. Yes, totally agree. Feels ah-mazing on.
- Soft matte finish exudes a sensual glow. Almost – it’s a super soft matte finish, however not TOO matte and dry like some formulas, which makes it perfect. Do my lips glow, not really, but they sure look nice and the pigment is rich!
- Unique innovative textures adds the perfect polish to any look. Yes, totally agree here too. I would wear this product for a fancy night out or a casual day running errands – it can go either way depending on the shade you choose and makeup look you pair with it!
