NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Amsterdam : Review , Swatch , FOTD

November 27, 2014

Hey Girls,

First of all a big thank you for your awesome comments on my previous post. I feel so happy when I see a post getting appreciated by you all as it means the world to me. Moving on to today’s post, It is going to be a Lippie review. I don’t even remember when I last reviewed a lipstick LOL , so here it goes. I am going to review NYX soft matte lip cream which has been my most craved makeup product till date and finally I got my hands on this beauty when I visited Sephora, Ambience Mall, Gurgaon.

Price : 6$ at nyx website / 570 INR at Sephora (Ambience Mall)

Quantity : 8 ml


nyx-lipcream-1 (1024x576)

nyx-lipcream-2 (1024x576)

nyx-lipcream-3 (1024x576)


What NYX claims?

“Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.


How to Use :

  • Apply directly to lips, or over lipstick.
  • Apply with lip liner to define outline of lips.


nyx-lipcream-4 (1024x576)

nyx-lipcream-5 (1024x576)

nyx-lipcream-6 (1024x576)



The lip cream comes in a regular plastic tube which has a transparent body and matte black screw cap with a doe foot applicator. Since It has a transparent base, it becomes easy to locate the shade. There is nothing too fancy about the packaging. It is pretty simple and travel friendly.


My Experience

As I mentioned before I had been dying to try nyx lip creams since so long. When I first visited sephora, they did not have the stock but this time fortunately they had around ten colors available most of which were n*des. I wanted to try the shade Amsterdam as I did not have any such sort of color in my collection (This is my first one ..Trust Me!). This is an attention seeking, gorgeous red color with pink undertones which would be perfect for a night out / date etc or for those who love wearing red. It would look great on most of the Indian skin tones. There are 21 other shades available in it.

The first thing you notice as soon as you open it is the delicious vanilla scent. The fragrance doesn’t last for long , Thank GOD otherwise I would have ended up eating it. It has a thick mousse like texture which sets to a beautiful velvety matte. It doesn’t feel sticky, glides on like a dream and is packed with pigment, seriously. I just need one swipe to get that phenomenal opaque coverage. When I want to sheer it out a little, I just blot it with a tissue paper. It covers up any dry patches and lines on my lips making them look smoother and better.It feels comfortable and light on the lips. A good thing I noticed about this lip cream is that it is not extremely drying as most of the other ‘cream to matte’ lip colors that I have tried, but then it isn’t very moisturizing either. I suggest using it over well exfoliated lips or after using a tiny amount of lip balm underneath (and let it sink in) , as you would do with any other matte lipsticks but make sure you don’t drench your lips totally with the lip balm or else this lip cream might apply a bit streaky.  It doesn’t transfer once it dries out completely and it usually take a minute or two to set. It stays put for good 5-6 hours surviving the meals post which it starts wearing off evenly leaving behind a beautiful stain on the lips.

Girls I don’t think I need more reasons to love this lip cream. It is an amazing product.

Buy it on nyxcosmetics or cherryculture..

nyx-lipcream-9 (1024x576)



nyx-lipcream-swatch (1024x493)

nyx-lipcream-FOTD (1024x576)


In these pictures I have applied only one coat of this lip cream .





Overall Verdict

NYX lip cream has become my ultimate favorite. I am a sucker of matte lip colors and this one totally won my heart. It has a great formulation and feels wonderful on the lips. The pigmentation is fabulous too. The only thing that might bother some of you would be the dry feeling you get after the application but trust me girls, this is better when compared to the other cream-matte lip colors available in the market.. You just need a little lip balm  *yes*


Do you own NYX lip cream ? Which shade is your favorite ?
