NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Buenos Aires

How great is this shade? The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Buenos Aires, £5.50. Me and my lips are spring ready. I’m making plans, to switch up my nail colour and dig out sandals. Match my new springtime lips. Peachy keen.

That is, until I get home and try it out. If you are a fan of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams look away now.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Buenos Aires

Firstly, it has very little colour pigment. It gives a sheer wash of colour, with your natural lip colour showing through. And not in a good way.

Secondly, that sheer wash of colour is patchy. And dry. So terribly dry. It clings to dry patches, exaggerates texture, settles into lines. Decidedly un-peachy.

You see? Patchy.


It must be this shade. The others in the line must be better. People love them. But this one, no bueno.

It’s one step away from straight in the bin bad. Maybe Summer will save it. More humidity, better conditioned lips? I’m reaching.

Til next time,

    That is so strange that yours was sheer! I love these lip creams!

      I know, I only hear good things! Maybe I got a bad one. Do you have this shade? H x

    I have this shade & was SO excited to try it out, but it wears the same way! Ugh, but great review & I love the honesty! 😊

      This is so good to hear! This shade must have a different formula. So disappointing. H x

    this shade of pink is really cute. I have ”copenaghen” that is such a dark red. I really love the colors of this collection but i find really amazing the nude shades of Lingerie collection

    I thought the same but I just kind of put up with it 😂 and load it on until it doesn’t look patchy and you can actually see my lips have changed colour x
