Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams - Tokyo & London


Trying out matte lipstick for the first time, from the affordable Nyx Cosmetics. Soft Matte Lip Creams, they do as they say on the tin.

It's been a while since I've wanted to try Nyx Cosmetics. Sadly, it hasn't yet hit South Wales (Boots, May 18th I'm coming for ya), but upon my recent visit to London, I obviously had to hit Selfridge's to try them out for myself. After all, I'd heard such amazing things about the quality and value for money on all of their products.

I must say the girls on the counter were amazing, they were definitely run off their feet, but saw me struggling looking for a particular colour, and snapped it up for me through the chaos!

I went for a soft baby pink, which is 03 Tokyo, and I went for something a little different for me - a soft brown, almost a bit 90's, which is 04 London (appropriate!).

What's The Verdict?

I must say that this is my first experience of matte lipsticks, and I loved them, but it definitely confused my brain a little! When I wore it, I felt the urge to put more on as it felt dry, thinking that it had all come off - like a regular lipstick/gloss. But to my amazement it had just sorta, stained my lips. I guess this took getting used to more than a usual product!

You can see from the picture above, that the Tokyo shade is very natural, very summery, very cute. It's a really lovely shade of pink and definitely not an in-your-face colour.

I LOVED this. This is so out of my comfort zone but I really liked it. I felt so 90's. I'm usually all about the nude but this was a great step up!

Overall, both colours were great for me. They both go on lovely, are really creamy and well pigmented. And guess what? They're bloomin' £5.50 each. Seriously, Nyx, what ya doing to a girl? I'll take one in each shade. 

You can buy Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in all shades here for £5.50.
