Hello pretty ladies!
Recently, in one of my previous reviews I talked about perfect nude and you all know what a tedious task it is to get a perfect nude. I have got another one. This time it is from NYX. While Rimmel’s Solstice was a mélange of nude and pink, this has a little tinge of peach. Peach and nude is something new in the market; keeping this in mind I again started my quest to find something relatable. And here am I, with NYX Stockholm Soft Matte Lip Cream.
This Lip Cream collection by NYX has some really amazing city names. STOCKHOLM!
Well, let us have a look at it.
Basic info about NYX Stockholm Soft Matte Lip Cream
Price: Rs 600 for 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 Stockholm Soft Matte Lip Cream
Packaging: NYX kept it simple with packaging by giving the peach-colored plastic tube with black matte cap.
Shade: When it comes to peach, medium skin toned people better stay away from it. The reason being, it highlights your complexion and makes a shade darker of it.
Stay: I only love long lasting lip colors. This one stays longer than usual but not up to my expectations. But because this is weightless and MATTE, you can give it your preference.
Experience: The texture is creamy matte and super soft that it seems like a lip balm. I felt like I have applied nothing, truly weightless. The shade brings out your original lip color and it just doesn’t go well for medium tone people. Unlike Copenhagen, which is an amazing shade, this is just so opposite. You can wear it only if your complexion is fair enough! Otherwise it’s a big NO NO.
The nude shade is something that no one can resist. It came out to be an average choice for me when I bought it.
Overall performance of NYX Stockholm Soft Matte Lip Cream
To be honest, the lip color is good. It just won’t work if you have medium complexion. Try buying from another range by NYX. Otherwise, you can always rely on this.
- Soft and creamy texture
- Matte effect
- Long lasting
- High on pigmentation
- So many shades to choose from
- Doesn’t go well with medium or darker toned people
Would I recommend/repurchase it?
No, I love trying and testing new shades of nudes, so I won’t repurchase it. I believe this is not something I expected it to be. I will only recommend it to those with fair complexions; otherwise, just don’t go for it.
