NYX soft matte lip creams pt. II.

Hi earthlings!

In October 2014, I featured and blogged about my six very much loved NYX's soft matte lip creams. You can check it out here! In that particular entry, you can find my review and pictures of swatches of shades: Zurich, Ibiza, Addis Ababa, Prague, Monte Carlo and Copenhagen.

As the title of the blog today suggests, it's high time I updated my humble collection of NYX's soft matte lip creams! This update is brought to you by three shades: Abu Dhabi, Rome and BudapestAbu Dhabi was given to me by a dear friend last year. Thank you Mai! As for Rome and Budapest, I just bought them at BND18 each from a Bruneian seller on Instagram,

Without further ado, here are the pictures that I took today! :)

↑ (L-R) Abu DhabiRome, Budapest.

↑ Abu Dhabi
↬ A soft, nude brown shade. I often pair this together with Zurich to create a beautiful nude with a hint of peach combination.

↬ A mauve, dusty rose shade. I think this is a beautiful shade and will look good on many skin tones! Rome actually reminds me of my Kat Von D's everlasting liquid lipstick in the shade Lolita.

↑ Budapest
↬ I see this as a wine-y shade and is redder than Rome, though both shades look a tad similar from the tube. Rome leans more towards brown and Budapest on the other hand, towards red.

These lip products smell amazing, as usual! The consistency is very creamy, as the name of the product would suggest. Though they appear creamy upon application, the finish is matte, but not overly matte that your lips end up being chapped and dry. I find myself reaching out for NYX soft matte lip creams more on a daily basis, just because they are so easy to apply and the fact that they aren't drying (with the pigmentation they offer) is definitely a bonus. In addition to that, they are easy to remove, in which the contrary poses a problem by other lip creams or liquid lip products. If your lips are naturally dry which may cause certain lip products to be drying on you, smack on some lip mask, moisturiser or Vaseline before heading to bed. This simple step has made my life much easier when it comes to applying lip products! 

I hope this blog post is helpful to any of you who might be interested in these lip products! Please don't hesitate to leave a comment down below if you have any further questions. Have a great weekend ahead of you!

  1. Hi! For the Rome, does the packaging have cruelty free logo on it anymore? Becasue mine doesn't and I just want to reassure that it's not fake. And is the shop you brought it from 100% authentic? Please help. Thankyou!

    1. Hello! For the Rome that I own, it does not have the cruelty free logo like the other shades that I have. I bought it from an online seller on Instagram as mentioned above 😊. Hope this helps!
