NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream | Makeup Collection

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are fun to try out and have in one's collection. Although I don't like them as much as the NYX Butter Glosses, I can appreciate that they dry down to a matte finish for a little more staying power.

They are a bit chalky I suppose, but not uncomfortably so. My bf didn't really care for them, but I don't think boys understand why girls like matte lip products. He prefers natural looking gloss or just my bare lips, go figure..ha. Glosses don't last long enough though, so in came the trend of matte lip creams, lip stains, stay all day and everlasting liquid lipsticks, etc.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams aren't that long lasting, but they fall somewhere in the middle in terms of comfort and wear time.
Here's a breakdown of the current available colors as of June 2015 on the website:
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream colors -
For some reason, on the NYX site, the swatch numbers are a little mixed up right at the beginning (it starts with 3, 1, 2, 4 and then goes on in the correct order. I clicked on one of them in the screenshot, so you can see the numbering.) Oh well. Anyway, I've put the numbers, names and color descriptions to the left of the site swatches for quick reference. 

Currently I have: 1, 5, 8, 10, 17, 18, 19, 22
1 Amsterdam - Pure Red
2 Stockholm - Mid-tone beige pink
3 Tokyo - Bubblegum pink
4 London - Mid-tone beige
5 Antwerp - Mid-tone yellow-toned pink
6 Istanbul - Clean pink
7 Addis Ababa - Bright fuchsia
8 San Paulo - Plummy pink
9 Abu Dhabi - Deep rose-beige
10 Monte Carlo - Deep cranberry red
11 Milan - Mid-tone blue-toned pink
12 Buenos Aires - Soft coral
13 Sydney - Soft lavender
14 Zurich - Matte muted rose
15 Athens - Matte peach beige
16 Cairo - Matte pure nude
17 Ibiza - Matte deep rose pink
18 Prague - Matte merlot
19 Cannes - Matte muted mauve
20 Copenhagen - Matte rich plum
21 Transylvania - Matte deep violet
22 Morocco - Matte coral orange

I think I may do some lip and arm swatches at a later date, but for now I just wanted to record which colors I currently have in my stash, and to provide the easy reference for anyone who stumbles upon my site. These have been around for a while, so there are already a gazillion swatches on the Internet anyway. For me, this post serves more as a check list of what I have and what I might want to try out in the future.

I think I like 8 San Paulo, 18 Prague and 19 Cannes the best.
