When I first saw these online, I got very interested as the line "goes on silky but looks soft matte" caught my fancy. I love matte lipsticks but this is one gives a whole new experience as this comes in a gloss type of application rather than the usual tube type of lipstick.
I actually like that it comes in a tube with a sponge applicator, the sponge itself distributes the color evenly. The texture of these lip creams are somewhat like icing on cakes (and it really smells like butter cream icing, how'd ya like that, huh?). At first it applies on very smoothly with a faint hint of shine then it dries up to a nice soft matte finish which I instantly fell in love with.
The color pigmentation is good. It gives off that opaque matte finish and it even leaves a cute stain even if you've already "eaten" the lip cream. :) *burp*
Staying power is 7/10. In my case, it did not come off after several coffee drinks but disappeared when I ate. But since that it leaves a stain after all, it still stays on top of regular lipsticks when it comes to staying power.
I got these in three shades, Antwerp, Milan and Addis Ababa. I equally love them all as they complement my skin tone just as lovely as I imagined when I saw them online.
then here's Milan:
and this is me wearing Addis Ababa on a get together with my friends. :)
Overall, I love these lip creams. I only wish NYX would include in the printing how much lip cream you got. It does not say whether how many ml's or grams of product you paid for. But it is all fine nonetheless, I love the product anyway. :)
I got this from digitaltraincase.multiply.com at 350 Php each. That site offers great NYX and other cosmetic fixations at a very reasonable price.
