NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review in San Paulo
'kay, someone's becoming a lipstick junkie right here. I'm still in the hunt for my holy grail lipstick color --and the matte liquid lipstick craze is not helping either. It's making me try and buy even more. Here I remember my first legit liquid lipstick (and non-lip tint) I've ever purchased in my entire makeup life: I'm talking about the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream!

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. - NYX Cosmetics

This baby promises to be "Neither a lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color.." and I truly agree! It's highly pigmented like that of a regular lipstick but it feels lighter.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (P390 in NYX counters) is housed in a sturdy plastic packaging. Also the container is the exact true color of the liquid lipstick making it easier to choose among the available shades. And oh, the cap is rubberized just like that of NARS blushes and MAC liquid foundations' cap which make them prone to dust and dirt.

Props to its buttery mousse-like consistency because unlike most liquid lipsticks, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream gives off a solid color without that mask-like feeling on the lips. It is very, very easy to apply especially if you're just starting out in using liquid lipsticks.

I had no problems spreading it around nor getting stains on my teeth as the application is a piece of cake. Scent-wise, I'm all hands down! NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream has this chocolatey to vanilla smell to it. It smells super yummy, really.

In their website, San Paulo is describe as a plummy pink. San Paulo appears almost as hot pink as Addis Ababa (hot fuchsia) to me. I could only guess that the difference is San Paulo is warmer and can be worn by medium-fair to morena skin tones. It's a very lady-like pink color, it's hot pink but not strikingly loud.

What I Like About NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream?
- buttery and mousse-like consistency that glides on smoothly
- vanilla scent
- it dries up completely matte
- dries up quickly
- feels moisturizing to the lips
- pigmented; you get the exact true color in 1-2 swipes
- available in a wide range of colors (they have 30+ shades in their website)
- available locally and online

What I Don't Like About it?
- not so much really, I just realized that this particular range is not available in Japan I think.

IMPORTANT: There are a lot of counterfeit versions of NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams out in the online market (I usually see them in Instagram shops). To be sure that you're getting the original one, purchase NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream from NYX counters only. However, if you're really on a tight budget I advise to always be vigilant when buying anything online.
