Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream.

Heya! Today I will be reviewing my very first Nyx item ever!! I had never bought any Nyx product before as it isnt easily available here. But thanks to Beauty Unleashed!! =)

I had been wanting to review this from so long but dont know what held me back=S

Anyways so here's what the company claims:

Neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.

The shade I own is San Paulo. Its a pretty rosy pink.

I simply love this creamy lip colors. First I was a little skeptical about getting this product and shade, But Im glad I gave it a try. It feels like a dream to apply. =)

The Packaging:
The packaging is simple and decent amount of product is there. The applicator as well is an ordinary doe foot sponge.

The Formula:
Its a matte finish as the name says. It reminds me of mousse make up! But it is some what more easy to glide. Applies soft but dries to a soft delicate matte finish.

Lasting Power:
Pretty good. It stayed on me for about 5-6 hours with a slight fading after about 3 hours of eating and having tea.

What I didn't like:
As I said I simply love it overall but the only turn off point of this product is the drying effect on lips. On me, they tend to fit in the fine lines of my lips which looks ugly sometimes! But I overcame this problem by applying a generous amount of lip balms underneath!

That's how San Paulo looks on me=)
P.S. Excuse my horrible looking lips.

Price:  I don't remember exactly but it was something around Rs. 800!!! 

Final Thoughts:
In a nutshell I would say its a pretty awesome product, feels soft and the shade is also quite wearable both in day and night.
