Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream

About the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream “It’s not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It’s like nothing you have experienced before. It’s lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.

The NYX Soft Matte lip cream in Milan is a medium cool toned pink which comes in a transparent tube packaging with a black cap and has a applicator inside it. The sponge applicator picks enough product for one application on lower and upper lips each.

This Matte lip cream glides on very smoothly  on the  lips due to its creamy texture settles to a semi matte finish after a few minutes of its application. It doesn’t bleeds and stays put on your lips. When it dries after a few minutes of its application, my lips don’t start to crack. They don’t feel moisturized but they don’t even feel dry. I have no problem with it on my lips and yes! I don’t suffer from overly drying lips problem. The pigmentation of this shade is quite good but if you have pigmented lips, you will need to swipe it 2 times more to make the shade look more opaque on your lips.

 The downside of the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream-It stays on my lips for maximum 1.5 hours without fading after which it starts to fade and forms a ring on your lips. Aargh! I just don’t like uneven fading of lip colors but then, I can’t complain for the price! :D And, after minutes of applying it , if you indulge in eating, the lipcolor would start to wear off at that time only.


Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream Milan Swatches

Overall Verdict: B

Would I Repurchase: I would purchase this product but in other shades that stay long on my lips.

 Price: Depends on where you buy it from. 600 from Indian Sites

Recommendation:  Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan is a beautiful medium cool toned pink that instantly lightens up my face.  It a great color for lighter to medium skin tones, but it might wash out darker ones.I don’t like re-applying lip products and therefore won’t buy it again. I will rather save my pocket money and buy a high brand lip product in a similar finish where it stays on my lips for a good amount of hours regardless of eating and drinking. Any suggestions please?  Finally, if you don’t mind re-applying lip products, grab it because at this price, it’s a steal!

have heard so much about these lip cremes from NYX but never had a chance to purchase it… this one sure looks tempting enough to finally buy one :) its such a yummy shade :)
but u know i didnt get the part about “ring formation” on the lips… :(


DevilishAngel January 14, 2012 at 9:22 am

Hey Samyukta,

You may have noticed dat some lip products dry evenly fading from between n dere’s still some lip product left on the outer circles of the lips.. dat’s what is ring formation

Hope u got it!:)


DevilishAngel January 14, 2012 at 9:23 am



NOT ‘dry evenly’, i meant fade in an unever manner :P


Nirah January 14, 2012 at 10:17 am

I have Milan and though it settles in fine lines, like it was meant to do just that, I love it.


DevilishAngel January 14, 2012 at 3:57 pm
