NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 'San Paulo' Review, Swatch, FOTD


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 'San Paulo' Review, Swatch, FOTD

Hey all!

Liquid lipsticks are ruling the beauty world currently... and I am hugely into them! Ever since I got my hands on them, I have been using nothing else for painting my pouts! NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are the first kind of liquid lipsticks I have ever known. So when I finally had a chance to visit Sephora Bangalore, I could not resist myself form picking up one shade form therange!

So today’s review is about the NYX SMLC that I own… ‘San Paulo’.

What NYX Says..

Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favorite.

What I Say…

It comes in a transparent tube with a black velvet cap. The sponge doe foot applicator does its job well to coat the lips with an even layer of product.

I love the fact that NYX has named each shade after some famous cities! Why don’t you choose some Indian city name, NYX? That would have been cool J

Coming to the shade, NYX has described ‘San Paulo’ as plumy pink! On my warm complexion, it is a beautiful brownish pink! Neither too neon, nor too dull… just perfect !! It is such kind of a shade which I can wear any day, anytime and with any kind of eye makeup!

I have heard them to be very drying! Trust me, they aren’t! May be NYX has revamped the formulation. I have very dry lips but I can wear this without lip balm underneath. Even I sometimes mix it with my other (dry) matte lip colors to make the formula comfortable. It has whipped cream kind of texture which applies very creamy initially and after couple of minutes dries down to an opaque matte finish! It transfers very less and easily stays for 5-6 hours if I eat carefully!

Pigmentation is pretty awesome! You just need a single swipe… and what you see in the tube is what you get on your lips.

And under artificial light!

Final Word:

These days I have been using it like crazy! I keep mixing it with other lip colors to make custom shades as well! And whenever I get confused with which lipcolor to go for, I just close my eyes and pick this up! If you are fair to medium skin toned you will rock it! Highly recommended! A must have shade from NYX SMLC range!
