REVIEW:NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm

4 years ago

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream comes in 12 shades and it claims: "It`s not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It`s like nothing you`ve experienced before. It`s a lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte." (from the bottle)

I got this product in my recent Ulta haul. I was a little hesitant about purchasing it because I had tried another color of these and it was terrible. However, I`m really glad I went ahead and got it because I really love this one!

It`s such a pretty nude and very wearable, I can see it working with a lot of different skin tones. The pigmentation is great and you`ll only need one coat. I found that it holds up really well through eating and drinking which is a plus!

As for the formula, it is definitely different! I would describe it more like a mousse rather than anything. The other shade that I had tried of this line was called Tokyo, and although I love the color the formula is terrible! It stuck to every line on my lips and dried them out like crazy. This could have been corrected with a gloss or balm, but then what is the point of a matte lip cream? Stockholm on the other hand was so smooth and did not emphasize any dry parts on my lips. I love how matte it is too! After about 10-15 minutes after applying it dries to a completely matte finish. Its hard to find a good matte lipstick I like but this one has zero shine, I love it!

If you are going to purchase these, I would definitely suggest doing some research first because these lip creams are really hit and miss. However, I really love this color and want to purchase more.

Overall rating: 4/5
