Hello, beautiful girls out there!
NYX turned one year old in India. Well, well, that was celebrated hugely by Nykaa. So, here’s another review for NYX Morocco Soft Matte Lip Cream… something that’s neither a lipstick nor a gloss. I am very particular about orange shade lip colors. Unlike, my last review on Elle 18 Coral Romance, this shade is a little brighter. Because of my medium skin tone, orange and bright shades don’t look good on me. However, this shade is quite amazing; I will now go in detail of this lip color.
Basic info of NYX Morocco Soft Matte Lip Cream
Price: Rs 600
Net weight: 8ml
Brand Claims: “Neither lipstick nor gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a stunning matte finish. It is light on the lips and heavy on the pigmentation-a perfect combination.”
My experience with NYX Morocco Soft Matte Lip Cream
Packaging: NYX kept it simple with packaging by giving the orange-colored plastic tube with black matte cap.
Shade: The shade is purely orange with bright undertones. The shade will suit every skin shade except warm tones. For me, this just somehow worked out.
Stay: This lip color does not stay for longer period. I still prefer it because of its color and that it is weightless with soft texture and of course, MATTE!
Experience: The staying power of this lip color is not that great and also, it usually gets flaky. The moment you eat or drink anything, the color will start fading and will get collected. I swear I hate when that happens. But, the good news is, it is not at all drying even though it is matte.
I have a medium skin tone and I gave a second thought to this shade before buying it. The bright orange color is eye-catchy and best-to-go-with this season. The texture is creamy but matte and super soft that it seems like a lip balm. High on pigmentation and feels like there is nothing on lips. Also, there is a wide variety of shades to choose from. I have already reviewed Stockholm and Copenhagen for you.
Also, the brush is soft and glides easily on to your lips. The lip color does not dry out your lips and maintains pigmentation.
Overall performance of NYX Morocco Soft Matte Lip Cream
Except for the color and the fact that it is matte, I didn’t like this lip color by NYX that much. The color is, again I repeat, super gorgeous, but the staying power and its flakiness let the lip color down. And, in order to get proper color, you need to apply twice on same lip surface.
Also, this lip color is a perfect dupe for the latest Kylie Koko Collection lip color Doll. In fact, many of NYX Soft Matte range are a perfect dupe for several high-end lip colors.
- Soft and creamy texture
- Matte effect
- Bright orange shade which is in this season
- Good pigmentation
- Perfect dupe for Kylie Doll Lip Color
- So many shades to choose from
- Gets flaky
- Staying power is not that good
Would I recommend/repurchase it?
I will only recommend this lip color to you if you can dare to re-apply the lip color when it vanishes. The flakiness leaves a big doubt here for me to recommend this lip color to you.
