It feels like forever since I last posted a product review and really, that's where my blog all started. My opinion on a moisturiser or a new mascara would be written and posted here and that is ok. Everyone's opinion matters and I hate seeing bloggers put down other bloggers (usually indirectly) for having an opinion. I just wanted to mention this and reassure anyone who is nervous about posting- go for it!
Now onto this little wonder in a tube. If you haven't heard of NYX then I'm afraid you're a little behind... Not to mention missing out! In most Boots there is now a NYX counter (if you don't, take my advice and order some of the lip products- they're all fabulous). Cannes
, a Soft Matte Lip Cream caught my eye as it looked neutral, but a little more exciting than you bog-standard nude.
I would say this isn't a gloss or lipstick but in-between. It applies smoothly, but you do have to apply one coat on the top and one on the bottom with the applicator. When you first apply, it has a rather liquid consistency, but after a few minutes, the finish becomes a soft matte (name gives it away) and lasts for a few hours unless you're eating, then you'll need to re-apply asap. It smells yummy, like a vanilla and is surprisingly moisturising.
The colour is a dark peach/ rosy and I love it! I have been wearing this daily and think it's the perfect transitional shade to take my lips into Autumn. The packaging is sleek and looks professional, which I like.
Have you tried any NYX products? What should I get next?
