NYX Soft MATTE Lip Cream Review, Photos and Swatches!


Hello all!  Welcome back to my first 2016 blog post. I’m back! Are you excited?

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas break and New Year, spent some much deserved time with your family and ate and drank way too much!

Let’s jump right in:


I don’t go to Jean Coutu Pharmacy as often as I use to, but when I do I always make sure to look for the NYX section. I noticed that not all Jean Coutu carries NYX cosmetics. On my recent trip to one of Jean Coutu’s store, I was excited to see a few products by NYX that I have been wanting to pick up for awhile.

Color Lip Cream from Left to Right: AMSTERDAM/MILAN/MONTE CARLO

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (CAD$8.99) are a new line-up of lip cream that are described as providing a sheer to medium coverage without feeling sticky. NYX makes some awesome lip glosses (especially their extreme lip creams so I heard) and as usual, they come in a great variety of color galore. Available in 11 soft matte shades with net wt: 8ml in store, drugstores or NYX online.

It provides enough coverage to be worn alone, but if you want opaque coverage you may want to layer it over a lipstick. I find that if I apply more than one layer it feels too thick and gooey on my lips, so one layer is all I need. Once applied on lips, I noticed the formula to be very moist and I blotted it with tissue paper for it to look more of a matte finish.

I really like these lip creams and would definitely try other shades. I like that they are a bit thicker than the Megalast Lipglosses, so they stick around longer and feel moisturizing on the lips. It feels super moisturizing on the lips and has pretty decent lasting power – similar to the Megashine Lipglosses.I must says i’m so in love with the colours I bought and I absolutely plan on getting more.
The Round-Up
  • Non-sticky
  • Great color – looks great when worn alone
  • Moisturizing
  • Inexpensive

I own several shades of the Soft Matte Lip Cream and I love all of them! They go on so smooth, dry matte & soft, the pigmentation is there and they smell a little like cupcakes. I’m not a fan of scented lipstick person but these feels comfortable on my lips. I received many compliments when I wore this lip cream out.

I really couldn’t recommend these lip creams enough and hope to buy a few more. NYX Cosmetics Semi Matte Lip Cream are now a staple in my makeup back. With its moisturizing properties, I tend to reach for these more frequently, and not to mention I’m more likely to wear lip cream now. Talking about following the new trend, huh! And with a reasonable price point for these babies, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t pick up a lip cream.. or ten.

Would I recommend? Heck yes! I want every single shade in the Soft Matte line. They’re all beautiful! I’ll be going back to get more shares for the next post.  Stay tuned for more photos and more color swatches coming up soon.

Have you tried any of the NYX Semi Matte Lip Cream? Any favorites? I love to hear your comments.

Thanks so much for stopping by and comment.

  1. I love NYX and I agree with you, one coat is all you need. They are so affordable and they look nice. My favorite is the BLG08 which is Apple Strudel. It is kind of a loud, funky, neon looking color in the container, but when you glide it on Oh La La!! I currently own about six lip products from NYX and there is always room in my collection for one more. Welcome back! Happy New Year.

    1. Thanks you so much for your comment. So glad to know that I’m not the only NYX addict LOL! I’m glad to hear that you like this post.The texture is not drying and it feels comfortable on lips. The darkest shade I got doesn’t appear very loud or bright compared to the texture of a matte lipstick. Happy New Year to you too!


  2. I like the sounds of a soft matte lip cream! I’m not a fan of really matte lip products – they don’t feel comfortable on my lips. These look really nice – I’d probably go for safer colour though – these are so bold! 😛
