The Review: NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams have been on my shopping list for a good while, but it has been well worth the wait. Last month during my visit to New York, I picked up three in a shop called Ricky's near Union Square. The shades are Antwerp (coral), San Paulo (mid-toned pink) and Amsterdam (bright red). 
As the name of the product would suggest, the finish is matte however they're not drying which is saying something coming from someone who suffers from dry lips throughout the majority of the year. My favourite of the three is San Paulo as I find that warmer tones which aren't too light suit me a lot more, although I also really like the other two shades and can tell that I'll get a lot of wear out of them.
They're easy and quick to apply and tend to be quite opaque. If you're looking for a quick lip option with some colour to it, then these are for you. I'm not sure how many shades they do in total, however they certainly do more than these three so if these aren't to your taste but you like the sound of them, then check out the other shades available!

Have you tried the Soft Matte Lip Creams? Which one is your favourite?
