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.

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.
