NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

38 comments

As-salamu alaykum and hello everyone ♡. Horaay! Did you come here from Instagram? Hehe... Love you! Okay, I have been patiently waiting to review this. I have rush myself from work just because I need to get home before the sun down. I need sunlight to take all of my blog pictures! It is the best lighting unfortunately since I started working, I have limited time for that. Phew glad I make it on time to take the pictures for the lip swatches. So I have been hearing these raves and love towards the SMLC (Soft Matte Lip Cream) from NYX so many times. I never get to go around with it as I thought this would be just an ordinary lip product. It is also hard to get, and always sold out at Sephora Malaysia. So I don't bother getting it. A lot of this blogshop and instashop have been selling this. I went to work and my office matte are also loving this. So I think I need to get my hand on this and try it for my self! So lucky an instashop, DoodleToodle offer me 2 of these for review, so why not I just add some and order from her. So I got another 4. NYX offers 22 shades of this SMLC (together with the new 2014 shades).

These NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream are describe as 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. Also, this SMLC have been awarded by Temptalia Editors Choice Awards in 2012. These SMLC are packed in a plastic tube with a matte handle. Yep, it gets dirty easily. So keep in mind to always clean it with wipes. The size of these SMLC are about 3/4 size of the usual lip gloss size. Pretty handy and easy to bring along. The applicator is a bit fuzzy but makes the application pretty easy.


My thoughts. LOVE IT. I seriously love it and already consider getting more of these. To tell you the truth, I love collecting lip products but I don't have the discipline and encouragement to always wearing it. Especially lipstick. Its messy and feel "heavy" on the lip. I find that I love lip products that has a cream-paste texture. Just like the Lime Crime Velvetines I reviewed a few months ago. I love a lip product where I feel like painting my lips. If you get what I try to explain here. Haha. No wonder why this SMLC have been love mostly by everyone. It "paste-ty" texture makes its easy to be apply, but a lip pencil is recommended for a more precises application and look for your lips. The pigmentation is build-able (some are pigmented, some are a bit sheer) and easy to control. I loveee the creamy sweet scent this SMLC have. The paste texture and scent makes me so addicted to re apply it over and over again. It is super versatile too. You can get like 3 different texture for this type of lip product. Apply it alone and get a matte finish. Aplly lip balm first then apply this one over to get a semi satin finish. Apply lip balm, this SMLC, and a clear lip gloss to get a glossy finish. I bet you wanna ask right. "Does this SMLC makes your lips dry?" Matte finish always looks dry, the fine lines usually gives this matte finish and we don't want that flaky and chappy type of dry. Glad to say that this does not dry your lips (chappy/flaky), but it give you this drying effect. With a lip balm as a base also help the hydration even better. The downside of this product to my opinion is that it may finish fast. A 3-4 dip of the product of needed to give your a full application on your lips. You kinda need to dig in the applicator in the tube to get the product out. Price wise are amazing, RM25 for each even if you have to re purchase it again and again I think its affordable. It last about 2-3 hours without eating or drinking.

Also, beware of fake NYX products. They are everywhere now. Its pretty funny to have a fake products for a drugstore kinda product.

    1. depends on what are you eating. haha. but this does not leave a tint to your lip. so basically you need to reapply it back after eating.

  5. Assalamualaikum Sabrina...

    I dh pakai and memang sgt2 best!! I love wearing bold color and i got myself Copenhagen.
    People around me said it doesn't suit me because u know, the color itself is too stand out. Tak seswai sgt kalo pakai time casual. But i'm not wearing it everyday. Maybe next purchase, i will buy san paulo. More wearable.

    Btw, i love reading your blog!! Keep up the good work dear... ;)

  6. Hi! I love your posts. But I wanted to let you know...
    I sell NYX in my store& get their products from the company. NYX is obsessed with makeovers-- as in they re-do their packaging. It's especially annoying when they actually change the COLOR too& then I'm left with an inaccurate tester. -_- Though, that has only happened for a jumbo lip pencil& single eye shadow.
    Among the SMLC, they also change their lipglosses, nail polish, slide on pencils, etc.
    But they are most certainly not fake, :)
    What a relief, eh?

    1. for me this one is not that matte. it still gives you that full luscious lips. i should check out the butter one. a lot of people loving it!

  16. I'm sorry, I'm still confused about the fake SMLC. so the bottle that has a lot of text on it is a fake one? 'cause my friend sells SMLC that has it on their every single bottle. can you explain it further? and sorry for bad English, hope you understand. I really need to know. :(

    1. Its ok dear. regarding the text on the bottle i am not sure because from what i heard that is the old design. what i can really tell is that the scent of the fake ones and the real one are different. the real one has a nice frosting cupcake scent.= and the texture should be creamy not glossy.
