REVIEW: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp

Have you experienced an excruciating back pain? I have been suffering from that lately and I am really annoyed now. I rested and even had a massage but the pain is still there which makes me worry a bit. Anyways, it won't stop me from blogging. NO, never! LOL!

 

Now, I will be sharing with you a review about a favorite lip cream of mine. It's NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp. This is actually the first lip cream that I actually fell in love with. I may be late because a ton of reviews are now available but I just want to share my thoughts about the product. Shall we start, eh?

 










Packaging: Matte screw cap connected to the applicator.

Product Description:
It's not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before. It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.

 

Silky but matte? Now that's interesting, right?










Doe foot applicator

Swatch:









Left: without flash
Right: with flash

Antwerp is a peachy coral shade that, I think,will look good on fair skinned people and even on morenas like me. 









One, thin swipe










Applied generously


When worn:










I look awkward, I know. :P


Pros:



- Packaging doesn't look cheap at all.
- I love the applicator. It spreads the product nicely on my lips.

- I love the scent. Smells like chocolate or vanilla. 

- The texture is silky and creamy. Unlike other matte lipsticks, this glides smoothly on my really dry lips.

- I find that this does not make my lips drier. 

- This particular shade complements my morena skin.

- SMLC comes in 11 shades.

- Color payoff is above average. It's not as extreme as I thought it would be but that's okay. I can always control the application.

- Long lasting. It can last up to 4-5 hours without eating. When you eat, it will fade but you can still see a sheer color left on your lips.

- Not tested on animals.

- Hypoallergenic.

- Affordable. You get what you paid for. (0.23 oz/ 6.5g)

 

Cons:

- It makes the lines of the lips more visible. 

- If you have dry, chapped lips, it will be more visible but not aggravating it.

- Not available in malls and drugstores here in the Philippines.
