I don’t own a matte lipstick. The closest would be my Snoe Rouge Deluxe in Vintage Rose, which has a semi-matte finish. I also suffer from perpetually dry lips, so I just stay away from them, no matter how gorgeous MAC Ruby Woo looks. I’m not even sure I can apply a matte lipstick properly.
I was browsing Digital Traincase last week when I saw this product on sale: Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream.
Neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint 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. Available in 13 lip colors.
• What it is: Highly pigmented, matte lip cream
• What it does: Creates various matte lip looks
• Why we love it: Delightfully creamy and lightweight, our award winning line just expanded with two captivating new shades.
• How to use: Apply directly to lips, or over lipstick. Apply with lip liner to define outline of lips.
Sold! That solved my problem with application and dryness.
I ordered Addis Ababa (described by Nyx as bright fuchsia) and Amsterdam (pure red). Great packaging for a tube that costs PhP 280 each.
I immediately swiped on Amsterdam. They weren’t kidding about pigmentation – I was so shocked by the red on my lips that I wiped some color away on a piece of tissue.
Stealth office shot! This is one (very light) coat of Amsterdam.
It’s such a pretty shade, and I’m now in love with matte finishes. I will definitely buy more of these matte lip creams. (And maybe the Ruby Woo?)
I’m also loving Addis Ababa. Look how the shade makes my teeth appear whiter than they really are.
If you’d like to order, do contact Digital Traincase. Ordering from them was a breeze.
