Now I know it seems like I have a new lipstick obsession every month (ok so maybe I do…) but I think I’ve found one that’s really something special. After indulging in a recent mini haul at the Barcelona NYX Cosmetics store, I fell head over heels in love with the gorgeous Soft Matte Lip Creams.
These genius formulas apply like a cream but quickly dry down to a super matte finish. The doe-foot applicator is also much easier to work with than a normal lipstick, especially if you have quite full lips like myself. Oh, and did I mention they smell like vanilla cupcakes and cost less than £6?? Win! Overall, I’m completely sold and since buying them I’ve hardly picked up my MAC or Charlotte Tilbury favourites at all!
Ok, let’s get down to the colour. I have two shades so far; the first being Milan, a surprisingly bright fuchsia pink. The real star though has to be Stockholm – a beautiful peachy nude. It reminds me of a slightly lighter MAC Velvet Teddy in a creamier form. Basically it’s perfect! There’s no flakiness in sight and once it’s worn off a little, just looks like a really pretty ‘my lips but better’ shade.
So now I obviously can’t wait to find myself a few more shades… Have you guys got any recommendations? Let me know in the comments!
