NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream In Stockholm: Swatches & Review
Guest Review By Guest Blogger Lancy (Dusky Skin Tone)
Product Description: 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 Soft Matte Lip Cream Stockholm is a beautiful peachy nude without shimmer. It looks kind of drab in the tube but a bit brighter on the lips . The color payoff is good enough to cover pigmented lips in a single swipe and the formula is super creamy- it glides onto the lips like a dream. After application, it dries to perfect matte finish in a couple of minutes. All matte lovers out there will fall in love with this lip cream’s finish.
Since it is matte, it tends to dry out the lips after a couple of hours. Hence, if you have dry lips, it is advisable to apply this lip cream over a moisturizing lip balm. On extremely dry lips, it settles into fine lines if not worn the proper way. Exfoliation is a must before application to carry this kind of finish or else it might end up looking cakey with fine lines . It comes in a neat sleek tube with a soft, doe foot applicator. The packaging makes it travel friendly and convenient to use.
The staying power of these Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams ranges between 2-4 hours and this lip cream doesn’t leave any tint behind after fading off. It smells similar to caramel and I absolutely love it! If you are somewhere between dusky to dark, this particular shade ‘Stockholm’ might wash out on your skin tone. This shade suits fair-medium skin girls the best. This shade is very apt to be worn with heavy kohled Smokey eyes or any other bright eye makeup look. It will look absolutely natural on light skinned girls. On my dusky skin, it looks so pale and so I never wear this lip cream without a good makeup base. And I always ensure to wear it in light hand to avoid end up looking with ‘cakey lips’.
If you are fond of bright nude lip colors and peach shade, then you will like NYX Stockholm lip cream.

- A beautiful peachy nude shade to pair up with heavy eye makeup

Cons of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Stockholm:

Recommendation: NYX Stockholm Soft Matte Lip Cream is a beautiful nude shade with a bit of peach in it. If you are a lover of nude lip colors with equally good pigmentation, then this shade is for you! Matte lovers will like it too. However, if you have dry lips, don’t forget to exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior application, and try this if you are fair to medium tone.
