Hope you all are doing good. So with summers in full swing the matte season is on. I am going through my stash right now and pulling out all the matte products I have. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam is one of my all time favourites.
Packaging: The packaging is totally fuss free. The tubes are color coordinated so it is easy to find in your stash. The tube is cylindrical. The material is made of very light weight plastic and it is travel friendly. The cap is matte black and it fits on tightly. The applicator is a typical doe foot one and there is no excess product on the wand. The tube is extremely light weight.
Shade: It is a bright Tomato Red shade. It instantly brightens up your face. It is not OTT bright so if you don’t like carrying bright lips you should try this since it is on the subtle side. It is not very suitable for office wear though in my opinion.
Texture: The cream is very lightweight and glides like a dream. It is like a mousse. It remains wet for a few minutes after application and then sets to a complete matte finish. It does tend to settle in fine line after a couple of hours. This is not a great product if you have dry lips and feel uncomfortable with matte finish. Exfoliation is a must. It is a great pick of summers.
Staying power: The color lasted for almost 7-8 hours. I ate and drank in the middle and it didn’t fade at all. You definitely need a makeup remover to remove this. It does come off with tissues etc. I love long lasting products in summers and this is just perfect.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is amazing. It is opaque in one single swipe. It is lip cream so it is neither a lipstick nor a gloss.
Fragrance: It has a vanilla fragrance that I personally love.
