NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream In Stockholm: Review & Swatches

ABOUT: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.

???????????????????????????????

PRICE:6$

PACKAGING:The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams come packaged in a typical lip gloss tube and have a traditional doe-foot applicator, which I prefer for liquid-y lip products. The first thing I noticed upon applying these, is the delicious smell that is they are vanilla fragranced.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

SHADE:Stockholm is a gorgeous nude peach shade.It is matte sans any shimmer.The shade suits my NC35 skin tone very well.However,it can wash out darker skin tone.

SWATCH

MY VIEWS:The lip cream applies well.Since,it dries up to a matte finish,it can accentuate flaky lips so lip exfoliation is very necessary.It glides easily and the color payoff is well which intensifies a bit after it dries up.The staying power is around 3-4 hours.I sometimes use this shade underneath glossy lipsticks that are sheer as they appear more pigmented over this shade.This shade suits fair-medium skin girls the best.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

RATING:3.5/5

RECOMMENDATION:Stockholm is a decent shade that will look great with smoky eyes.It has a beautiful matte finish which is comfortable.However,it has to be ordered online.

 

 

NYX Cream blush-Hot Pink review & swatches

ABOUT: More delicious than peaches and cream? We like to think so. Our velvety smooth mineral Rouge Cream Blush offers a sheer wash of radiant color. The glorious payoff is dewy, sultry and long-lasting.???????????????????????????????

PRICE: 6$ OR around rs.650 in India.

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING: The packaging is simple and sturdy with a black round pan packaging having a transparent lid .The shade name is provided at the back.

???????????????????????????????

THE SHADE:  Hot Pink is a pretty barbie pink shade.It looks really bold in the pan and on swatching but when blended out,the shade is so amazing and adds ‘pinky pinky’ flush to cheeks.

???????????????????????????????

I have used this as a lip color also and it looks amazing.Only problem is that this shade is cool tone so it will look slightly streaky on darker, olive skin tone.And this is a perfect dupe for Bourjois Rouge edition lipcolor 12(rose neon) just that rose neon is slightly more vibrant on lips.

NYX Mega Shine Lip gloss-Natural review & pics

I rarely use lip glosses and this one is great for pairing with smoky looks as well as for subtle looks. NYX offers variety of formulas and shades that it is completely irresistible to choose a single shade!!
ABOUT:“Kiss me quick! Our signature Mega Shine Lip Gloss delivers shine, moisture and softness and envelops lips with glistening color. The finish is both creamy and steamy and ensures knockout glamour. A blend of mineral and lanolin oils helps protect the pout. Available in 50 almost sinful lip gloss shades.”

PRICE:$5 for 11 ml

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING:Sleek plastic tube packaging with a doe foot applicator. I am personally not a big fan of doe foot applicators as I tend to spread the product outside my lip line using them. But with some controlled strokes it gives a clean finish. It has a cute bow on the cap.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

SHADE:Natural is a pretty everyday wearable lip gloss. I  would describe it as a light brown with pink undertones which makes it a versatile shade that will suit everybody. It is sans any shimmer or frost.

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture is very smooth.It is slightly thick in consistency but that helps in easy application and prevents bleeding of the gloss.

???????????????????????????????

It glides on perfectly making the lips soft and keeps them hydrated.The finish is glossy.

It has a tendency of being a little sticky but it is comfortable enough and light weight.

Staying power is less.It stays for about 2 hours maximum but leaves the lips very soft.

???????????????????????????????

This is the prefect gloss to be worn with intense smoky look.It doesn’t settle in the lip lines neither accentuate them.

It has fruity cherry fragrance which makes it all the more delicious!!!

PROS:

  • subtle ,everyday wear gloss shade.
  • light weight.
  • comfortable on lips.
  • keeps lips soft and hydrated.
  • the wand applicator is great.
  • available in many shades.
  • reasonably priced excluding shipping.
  • doesn’t settle in the lip lines.
  • doesn’t accentuate flaky lips.

CONS: 

  • has to be ordered online else its very pricey.
  • low staying power.
  • the packaging might break if it is closed very tightly.

RATING: 4.7/5

RECOMMENDATION: I love the shade,formula and everything in this gloss.It is super comfortable and the shade is such that it doesn’t wash out my skin tone.Highly recommended!!

THE SHADE:Addis Ababa is a gorgeous blue based pink.It looks very bright in the tube but comes out beautifuly and toned down on lips.I like the effect and how it brightens up my face.I like pairing this shade with a soft pink blush and it just looks wonderful !!

OVERALL PERFORMANCE: The formula is creamy as it is a lip cram but it settles to a semi matte finish and sometimes, I apply a coat of clear lip gloss over it.It feels comfortable on lips.It can b a bit drying for dry lips but a balm underneath will help.Also,you need to properly exfoliate your lips otherwise it will accentuate dry flaky lips to the most.

INGREDIENTS: 

???????????????????????????????

SHADE:The shade Femme is bold,loud yet not OTT shade of coral.It is more of an orangy coral shade than being orangy pink which makes it look different.

???????????????????????????????

PERFORMANCE:The texture of the lipstick is very creamy and glides on easily on lips as with all NYX round lipsticks.I love the fact that these are available in variety of finishes to suit everybody’s choices.

It dries to a satin matte finish that i really like.

???????????????????????????????

It is super smooth which makes it more prone to bleeding.I usually apply it and then blot and then apply it again.This way,it not only prevents bleeding but also increases the staying power for about  5-6 hours as the shade leaves a stain.

???????????????????????????????

This creamy nature of the lipstick makes it prone to breakage and creating mess around that i really dislike.

???????????????????????????????

PROS:

  • great shade for summers.
  • creamy formula.
  • decent staying power.
  • comfortable on lips.
  • soft and smooth.
  • available in variety of shades.
  • the lipstick has a satin matte finish that i like.

 

CONS:

  • prone to breakage.
  • not travel friendly.
  • the lipstick bleeds if over applied.
  • unattractive packaging.

 

 

RATING: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: NYX round lipsticks are available in 144 shades and are a hit among all.Though these are prone to breakage but the price at which that comes and the finishes they provide is amazing.If you like wearing bold shades then Femme is a must have!!!
