Hi everyone! I’m trying to slowly start reviewing my products that I’ve owned for awhile now just to build up a good base on my product review directory! It’s on the left sidebar if you’d like to check out what I’ve already put up on beautymunson and it also has some (coming soon)s!
My items for today are my NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. They’re these super cool lip creams that apply like a velvety gloss and dry to a matte finish. They’re a bit of a pain because they wear off fairly quickly (I’d say fourish hours) and leave that dreaded rim around your lips so you have to be sure to bring them with you wherever you go!
I also had the color Tokyo that I only wore once back in school last semester out one night and woke up the next day, realized it was gone. Gone as in left-it-at-a-frat-house-or-some-random-pledge’s-car gone. So I was super sad… until I saw the pictures from the night and realized how horrendous it looked on me! So no love lost there.
The colors I DO own are San Paulo, Amsterdam and Addis Ababa. San Paulo is a pretty, natural color that is slightly pink and magenta. I always think that I can pull this off as a my-lips-but-better color but I need to remember HOW pale I am and HOW pale my lips are! Sigh. For you with more pigmented lips, I think this would work fantastically. Amsterdam is one of two red shades of the products, this one being the lighter one. It’s a sheerer wash of red that’s great as an everyday red since it’s not too vampy. Addis Ababa is a darker, magenta pink. Build it up and it becomes a super vibrant color but one coat and it’s just a sheer wash of pink.
For my swatches, I had about 2 coats.
