My Experience with NYX Transylvania |NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

NYX Transylvania Soft Matte Lip Cream 2

Transylvania is really really dark. The darkest shade in the lip cream range. And I am not quite sure for what kind of look it’s appropriate for. It gives a Goth look according to me. Hence my suggestion is that if you can pull it off go for it. This certainly is a color for people who are not afraid to flaunt their style and grab attention. It’s a seductive color and goes with all skin tones. They have a brilliant satiny matte finish and are much much softer and creamier than most matte finish lip colors. They do dry up your lips but not as much as other matte lip colors. They can last for 6 hours without much fading if you avoid eating or drinking much. It’s super affordable and easily available. It doesn’t have any particular smell and comes with an applicator. The texture is very smooth and glides easily over the lips. It takes around 20 mins to dry up. My suggestion is that you avoid eating or drinking at least 30 mins after applying it.

Overall Performance of NYX Transylvania | NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

Transylvania is something I would rarely apply! I got a pack of three shades: Prague, Copenhagen, and Transylvania. This way I got it cheaper than buying individuals separately. Now Prague and Copenhagen are really cool however Transylvania just doesn’t suit my personality. Hence I rarely apply it. However, I really am searching for opportunities to wear it. Maybe a costume party where I could be the wicked witch or something 😛 It’s smooth and glides easily over the lips and surprisingly not much drying. Some shades look all dried up after some time, especially the nudes but not this one. However, if you rub your lips hard it might even chip off. But this might happen like 3 to 4 hours after application if you are in an air-conditioned room and your skin is naturally dry. You can rectify it by using a chapstick before applying the lip cream. Otherwise, it’s perfect.  Considering the price and availability it’s a great bargain even comparable to Mac and Kylie lip kit shades.

Would I recommend?

If you are a Nyx fan you would love this, it’s perfect for beginners and dabblers who wish to explore affordable good quality makeup. This little item has the potential to make you look like a million bucks. Wear it if you are not afraid to flaunt bold shades.
