Matte Lip Creams? My verdict w/ swatches.

From L to R: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul and San Paolo, Collection 2000 Creme Puff in Powder Puff.

I was excited to try some Matte lip creams ever since I heard about them a few weeks ago. Basically they are a cross between a matte lipstick and a lip gloss. Considering that I really like matte lipsticks, it seems right up my street. I finally decided to buy some and here is what I think.

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream cost £5 and the Collection 2000 Creme Puff's are a little cheaper at £2.99.

I am so upset about this shade. I was excited to try it, the colour suits me perfectly. The product smells amazing, but its just not ever going to get worn by me because it sinks into the creases of my lips horrendously. Wah!

Such a pretty nude pink lip. I really love this one, I think i'll get alot of wear out of it.

This application is terrible, I'll know next time to use a lip brush with this colour for a more neat looking lip. I love the colour and the feel of this though. I think with this category of product it is definitely the case that the darker, the better.

Overall opinion?

I prefer matte lipsticks. I think these are okay, but nothing special really. As soon as I tried them out I knew they would be an emergency product for my handbag, for when I forget to use anything on my lips or want a pick me up. 

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Sao Paolo is the clear star of the three, and I'll probably put that to work, as for the other two, i'm not too sure.

  1. Very pretty colors, I actually haven't tried anything from NYX yet. Really interested in their jumbo eye pencils though. (:

    1. The Jumbo eye pencils are great, I definitely recommend them. I've just bought another load for my collection actually aha! Don't know if you knew this already but they are 3 for 2 on the NYX site at the moment, so maybe now would be a good time to check them out! xo

  2. These look pretty, although I do tend to go for lipsticks more than other lip products. I have almost picked up the creme puffs a few times and read some good reviews although Im glad I didnt now if they crease like that especially as my lips can get quite dry. Im now following your blog :) x

    1. Thanks! I know, I was so disappointed by that one, it's my favourite colour out of the three. I'll have to see if I can find a good lipstick to drupe that colour!
