Guest Review by Roshni K (Skin type: Oily, Skin tone: Dark)
I have been obsessed with liquid lipsticks for a while now. I have tried quite a few but the NYX soft matte lip creams have become a favorite of mine. I have a few shades and I have to say all of them are very pretty shades.
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a small and cute tube which makes it compact. It has a black cap and the tube is transparent which showcases the color of the lipstick brilliantly. The applicator is doe shaped and very easy to use. The packaging is also very travel friendly and spill proof.
Shade: Copenhagen is a lovely deep red shade but not very vampy. It looks lovely on most skin tones but looks amazing on darker skin tones as it complements dark skin very well.
Texture: The lipstick is very creamy, almost like butter. This makes it very easy to apply as it glides on smoothly. It stays a bit wet after application for around 10 minutes and then it sets completely matte. If you have dry or flaky lips, I recommend you use a lip scrub and lip balm before application as the cream does tend to settle into fine lines after a few hours.
Pigmentation and Staying Power: The pigmentation is amazing, a single coat would be enough for most people although two coats makes it completely opaque and brings out its true color. The lipstick stays for around 5-7 hours even with eating and drinking. It fades a little after eating but not too much. The lipstick does transfer a bit while sipping.
