 Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams are basically a liquid lipstick with a creamy texture on the lips. The scent may be a hit or miss for some as it smells very sweet, it reminds me of frosting. Personally, I love the scent. It comes with a doe foot applicator which helps apply the product very well. You basically apply it and it will dry within a minute to a matte finish. I find that they are not very drying compared to other matte lipsticks but you definitely want to exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior to applying as it will definitely show off the dry patches on your lips. Honestly, you should do this with any lippie.

I was able to wear it for four hours before it began to dry my lips. I also drank with it on and it did transfer however the color still remains on your lips.

I love most of these shades with Zurich being my most favorite because it's my perfect everyday lippie. I love Copenhagen because it's an awesome lippie for fall. My least fave is Milan because I feel as it is a touch too light for me but I can probably make it work if I use a lip pencil underneath.
They retail for approximately $6 but you can get it cheaper at Target, Harmon and sites like ebay and In addition, Ulta periodically holds sales on Nyx so you could also get it cheaper there as well. I purchased two sets of three for about $10 each on ebay.

Lip Swatches!
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Sao Paulo
Sao Paulo is a warm berry pink color- its basically my perfect pink lipstick and its one of my faves.
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan
Milan is a cool light pink color. It's one of my least favorites because I feel likes its too light for me. I haven't worn this color much.
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Zurich
Zurich is a muted pink nude color. I absolutely love this color, it isn't too light on me so it has become my favorite nude lippie. Perfect for everyday wear.
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen
Copenhagen is a deep wine color. It has become a fan favorite among many ladies. I LOVE this color although its very similar to other lippies that I have. I have a thing for dark lipsticks. You have to be careful when applying this color so it doesn't look messy.
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp
Antwerp is a mid tone coral-pink color. It isn't a bright coral so its very wearable and it looks a little similar to Sao Paulo on me.

Sao Paulo, Copenhagen and Zurich are my favorites and I definitely plan on getting more of these lip creams. I want to try Transylvania and Prague. I love the formulation and any lipstick that is long wearing automatically becomes an HG. I totally recommend these lip creams and I'm sure you'll find a color that you'll like as there about more than 20 shades in this collection!
