As I’ve mentioned again and again I’m without a doubt an obsessive lipstick hoarder! I can never have enough lipsticks and my collecting is constantly growing. Whenever I buy a new lipstick and really like it I get totally obsessed with it and wear it non-stop for a few weeks before I move on to the next lipstick. I just can’t commit to one but then again why would I even want to when there are so many amazing colors and finishes and brands out there, right?
My current obsession is the NYX soft matte lip cream in Stockholm. I’ve raved about the NYX Butter Glosses many times on my blog before and I’ve been dying to try their matte lip creams but they weren’t available over here until fairly recently. Obviously as soon as I found out I could purchase them now I ordered two colors because I just HAD to try them.
I already own a few matte lip creams by other brands but somehow I didn’t have a single nude shade in my collection. (I always go for the dark reds/purples) So I knew right away that I wanted to get a nude shade and eventually ended up purchasing the color Stockholm and OH MY GOD it was love at first application.
The color is absolutely stunning! It’s the perfect neutral nude, that goes with so many makeup looks from a simple every day look to a heavy smoky eye. It’s so neutral it kind of adjusts to your makeup look and is perfect for evening out a heavy eye makeup.
But what I love even more than the color is the formula. Especially consider that NYX is definitely a high street brand I find the formula seriously outstanding. The product applies so evenly on the lips and gives great coverage. It’s a dream! Since it’s a matte lip cream it applies similar to a lip gloss but dries to a matte finish. Some of those matte lip creams can feel quite drying on the lips but not this one! Honestly sometimes I even forget that I’m wearing it because it feels so light on the lips and it is not drying at all! Another thing I’m also really impressed with is its lasting power! I’ve worn this shade to work now a few times and it has lasted me all day without having to reapply even ones. It started to fade slowly but evenly after 5-6 hours but it still looked nice.
I’m head over heels in love with this shade and I want to try a few others now. I also bought the shade Copenhagen, which is a really dark vampy red shade and I cannot wait to give that one a go.
Have you tried these? What were your thoughts?
Thanks for reading!
