NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream In London

Regular readers will know that I am pretty fussy when it comes to liquid lipsticks. There are very few formulas I can cope with for any length of time - the sensation of having every last drop of moisture forcibly removed from my life when they dry down just doesn't do it for me. I'd rather re-apply my lipstick every 5 seconds than go through that sensation every day, thank you very much.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London Review and Swatch

 The closest to comfortable formula I've found is the bargainous Colourpop Ultra Satin lips - but, as the name suggests, these are more on the satiny side, and they are transfer a-go-go. Well, NYX may have just pipped them to the post with their Soft Matte Lip Cream in London.

I'm a long-term NYX Butter Gloss fan, so I suppose I shouldn't have been quite so surprised that these are as good as they are. The formula is creamy, without being sticky, and is very lightweight. It does take a minute or so to dry down - but it's very sympathetic to your poor pout's moisture levels in the process. The Soft Matte Lip Cream formula is just that - soft matte - velvety, rather than Saharan. I find this colour fades evenly, and doesn't leave a horrendous white-ring-of-death around the middle of the lips. Winning.

You can see in the swatch above that London is quite a brown-nude shade - it's surprisingly forgiving, and if you're normally a warm-toned gal, this will be right up your street. As with all NYX lip products - it also happens to be a steal. £5.50? It'd be rude not to.
