|NYX| Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm & Cannes

I am soooooo excited to share with you all my latest beauty product loves, the NYX CosmeticsSoft Matte Lip creams <3!

I am so glad I jumped on the NYX bandwagon & tested out these two lip creams. I absolutely love, love, love everything about them! The packaging is see through with a pointed applicator tip. This enables a perfect application of the matted lip cream onto the lips. What I also love about the see through packaging, is you can tell how much product is left inside. Always a huge plus in my books!

I was told through the grapevine, and speaking to a couple of my friends that their biggest worry about purchasing the Matte creams was that they were afraid that the formula was drying! I can safely say that you needn’t be worried about your lips drying up with these Matte Lip creams! They are so unbelievably moisturising, you’ll think to yourself, Oh! well my lips feel like creammmm! ๐Ÿ˜€

The formula is very moisturising it applies onto the lips and feels like cream, and then fully dries into a matte base onto the lips. One little thing I noticed about the formula is that the lip cream gathers around the ends of my lips when I apply it. I’ve noticed that happen on all the times I’ve applied the lip cream. I am willing to dismiss this little issue as it can easily be remedied by using the same lip cream applicator to smooth out the excess gathering of the lip cream around the edges.

“Itโ€™s not lipstick, nor is it gloss. Itโ€™s nothing like youโ€™ve experienced before. Itโ€™s lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.” โ€“ NYX

The NYX Lip creamsย also have far exceeded my expectations with the fact that they have a long lasting nature & have an intense pop of colour, meaning their pigmentation is on another level! I’ve been surprised by this statement as the brand is not high end, and in fact with makes it even more sweeter is that each lip cream is priced at ยฃ5.50 / per lip cream!!!

Sweeter in the price & I’ll end the review saying this, they even smell like Strawberry Parfait! <3

Lots of Love <3

  1. I love these! I am actually wearing Stockholm right now! It’s such a gorgeous everyday nude! I really need to get Cannes, it looks beautiful!

  2. After reading your post I now want to get my hands on these lippies even more! Copenhagen has been on my wish list for a long time ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  3. You’re right, they really do look super moisturising – nothing better than that in a lip cream! The colours are gorgeous too and so flattering ๐Ÿ™‚ I love your new header by the way!

    1. Thanks so much Gabrielle :)! I agree nothing beats a moisturising lip cream! Especially when it’s the colder seasons! I hate when drug store matte creams dry on the lips! Thanks so much hunny! I’m glad you like the new header ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

  4. I absolutely love these- not that I have picked them up yet which is crazy, but money seems to be going pretty fast at the moment but next month I will I will I will get them as they are beautiful xxx

      1. Yes actually i have Copenhagen which is a super sexy deep berry and London which is a very pretty true nude ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜˜ I wish i had them all though ๐Ÿ˜ž

      2. I want them all too ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ˜‚! I actually have London & Copenhagen on my next to buy List hehehe! ๐Ÿ˜€ xoxo

      3. Thanks so much gorgeous๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Šโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜†! ๐Ÿ™‚ they would all look gorgeous on you too babe! Xoxo

      4. Hehe you’re a sweetheart ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’“ Thankyou honeybee ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฏ

    1. Awww you’re such a sweetie pie, thanks so much Lisa ๐Ÿ™‚ glad you love the swatches! You have to get your hands on a couple ๐Ÿ’—โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’‹ xoxo

    1. Hehehehe! You have to get to your nearest NYX counter (Selfridges has one)! & you need to get yourself some lip creams! Thanks so much Karen ๐Ÿ˜€ xoxo

    1. Oh Anne, that was my biggest worry about them being worry! However I’m glad they’re super moisturising! I think you’ll love Cannes ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s such a perfect colour! Xoxo

      1. It is always a little gamble with these long lasting matte shades: some can be horrid in texture. These sound lovely though ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Oh no! Hahaha does it look like beige concealer on you! I’m so interested in how colours are so different on each skin tone! Thanks so much sweetie ๐Ÿ™‚ <3 xoxo

      1. Hahah! I think it’s a guessing game ๐Ÿ™ unfortunately I played a guessing game too! Because I can only find NYX online or in store they have a concession, but most of the lip creams dont have testers ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜†! I’ll be reviewing London / Abu Dhabi soon :p maybe wait till then for the colour pay off? ๐Ÿ˜€ xoxo

      2. Same here! I just relayed on lip swatches online. NYX is super affordable so even if it doesn’t suit me I don’t mind I guess hehe. I tried Stockholm again and since my tan has faded a bit it looks only a TAD less scary haha so I’m hoping it was just the tan that made it look awkward! But of all the lip creams ibiza, cannes and zurich are my faves <3

      3. Hahaha! I only mind if I check out an online swatch for an expensive lippie & when it arrives it looks totally different to what I expected like when I ordered Candy Yum Yum from MAC & it looked so horrible on me ๐Ÿ™ haha! Hehe yeah I think if your tans fading it could give you a nice peachy nude colour! :p I have my eyes on Ibiza & Copenhagen I wonder how they will turn out! I bought London & Abu Dhabi haha I’m on an NYX roll! Xoxo

      4. Oh yea if it’s something like MAC it’s always better to go test it out first…but online shopping is just way more convenient haha
        I only look good in warm or neutral tones and I cannot pull off any nude or anything light. I always want to do like a nude pink but I look atrocious everytime ๐Ÿ™
        I say just buy all the lip creams and call it a day hahah

      5. hahaha! I prefer testing it out in store first too! I cant pull off really bright pinks or corals ๐Ÿ™ with my pale skin tone! I think you should mix pink lip liners with nude browns ๐Ÿ˜€ I think you’ll get a lovely pop of colour and a light nude you’ll end up loving! TRUST ME ๐Ÿ˜€ xoxo

      6. I think coral pinks look so lovely on paler skin tones! Wow why have I not thought about that combo before?! You are a genius hahah I will definitely need to try that out now! Thanks girl!! <33

      7. Hehehe it’s ok sweetie! I hope that combo will work for you ๐Ÿ™‚ let me know if it goes well together ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜˜ <3 yeah coral pinks I'll have to try those out ๐Ÿ™Š thanks so much sweet ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

  5. I am totally loving both of these shades- they are really natural looking! I’ve had the drying problem with some matte lip problems before so it’s great to hear that these are very nourishing ๐Ÿ™‚ I might have to jump on the NYX Bandwagon too!!

    Rachel xx

    1. Hehe! Thanks so much Rachel! Ahhh I hate when that happens!!!! ๐Ÿ™ and you feel your lips want to stick together! & bits feel like they’re coming off! I’m so glad these ones feel like velvet & stay on like velvet too! You really have to pick up a few lip creams Rach! You’ll LOVE them :p <3 <3 <3 xoxox

    1. Hehe! I need to stop buying makeup & buy some clothes :p haven’t clothes shopped in a month ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ˜† thanks so much sweetie! I absolutely love them & have to stop myself from buying loads I already purchased another two hahah xoxo

    1. Thanks so much Lena :p ahhh absolutely thanks for the suggestion ๐Ÿ™‚ you have to try and grab some of them! You’ll LOVE them! Thanks hunny & I hope you’re having a lovely week! Xoxox

    1. Thanks Lovely, I think Cannes would look amazing on Indian / Asian Skinn! It would be a much more Mauvy / Nude & as for Stockholm, I’ve heard from a friend that it appears beige on Tanned skin! So I think a better option for a light nude lip cream would be London or Abu Dhabi ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

    1. Ah I need to try Milan! ๐Ÿ™‚ <3 that colour sounds perfect with the dusty pink lipsticks I have from MAC! ๐Ÿ™‚ Cannes is too gorgeous isn't it <3 xoxo

    1. Thanks so much Roxy! Miss you Twinny <3!!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ they're amazing! You really need to get some more hehe xoxo

  6. These look gorgeous! I haven’t tried the Matte Lip Creams yet, but love my Butter Gloss. If I hadn’t read your review I’m not sure I would have picked one up if I’d come across them as I have dry lips. It’s really great to know that the formula isn’t drying. The shades are gorgeous, they really suit you! Xx

    1. Thanks so much Tania ๐Ÿ™‚ I absolutely had the same idea as you & thought they would be drying, but they’ve honestly surprised me a lot! ๐Ÿ™‚ oh you’re going to LOVE them if you pick a couple up! Hope you enjoy them! I wasn’t a huge fan of the butter glosses myself, but maybe it’s because I dont like high glossiness xoxo

  7. These are gorgeous nudes! Not something I would gravitate towards looking at the packaging, but the color is completely different on!! I love the peachy nude – right up my alley!!!
