NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

Well hello there my beauties!
We all know that I love lip products so there will probably be several lip posts/reviews but I can’t help it.  Lippies just make you feel so beautiful no matter what you’re doing.  I seriously will wear a nice bold lip while cleaning my house just so I feel pretty while doing so.  I know, I’m a dork but hey, whatever helps to build some confidence, right?

Lately I have been LOVING the NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Creams.  I own several shades but these 3 are my absolute favorite and ones that I wear quite often.  The smell of the product itself is so yummy.  It reminds me of cake batter.  If you aren’t used to matte products, the consistency might throw you off a little.  In fact, it may look like the product is coming out in small chunks.  This is totally normal, not gross like it probably sounds, and the product still blends out nicely.

Each color is hit and miss as far as how the product applies.  I found that certain colors apply kind of choppy looking where as others apply smooth and evenly.  I found that it is more of the vivid, bold colors that apply kind of choppy.  If this happens for you, just continue to apply and blend until there are no “bald” spots left on your lips.  For the price, it doesn’t even matter that you have to do this with certain shades.  The colors are fun and absolutely beautiful.  I currently have 2 of each shade–one for my lip product drawer to use on a regular basis and one in my purse since I use these so often.  I believe I paid around $5 at Target for a few shades and closer to $6 at Ulta.  I got mine a little cheaper at Target because of the RedCard.  Either price, it’s still an awesome deal for a lip product.  Go try them out and let me know what you think.  Let me know which shade is your favorite.
