NYX says : Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.

My take on the Product
The NYX Soft Matte Lip cream comes in a tube packaging with a regular doe foot applicator. The texture of this product is like a thick cream. It spreads easily on the lips and gives rich color in a single swipe. The colors are saturated with pigment and it easily gives opaque coverage to the lips. The lip cream feels very creamy on application but dries down to a matte finish soon after. Once it has set into a matte finish, the lip color does not budge or fade for hours! You needn’t worry about the color bleeding or feathering outside your lip line. These are fantastic in my opinion though can be a little drying over time. But be careful to not slather on too much lip balm under this otherwise the application can get slightly uneven. I remember trying these a couple of years ago and the formula has definitely been improved since then. They feel much more comfortable and less drying on the lips. If you’re looking for a pigmented, matte finish, long stay lip color, do try out the NYX Soft Matte Lip creams!
Cannes is warm peachy pink that would make a great everyday wear shade for many skin tones. It pairs really well with brighter eye makeup as well. I love that it doesn’t wash me out but doesn’t draw too much attention either. Recommended!
