Drugstore Find \\ NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

I always love a good drugstore find. We were in Walgreen’s the other day so I could get a passport photo to legally change my name on my passport (just as an aside, changing your name is such a pain!). To Joe’s dismay, I found my way to the beauty aisle as we were waiting for the photo to print, and I came across these soft matte lip creams from NYX. After swatching a few, I was intrigued and wanted to give them a shot!

The formula is pretty good for a drugstore find. I’d describe it as a mix between a lipstick and a lip gloss. It applies creamy and wears comfortably (hey, I bet that’s why they named them lip creams!), though you’ll definitely have to reapply throughout the day. But, for $6, I can’t really complain! Whereas most matte lips will dry you out throughout the day, this one doesn’t lose its creamy formula.

I bought two colors, Stockholm and Zurich. Be warned, the color when applied looked almostΒ nothing like the drugstore swatch. But, luckily, I still really liked them both.

Stockholm has a peachy, nude undertone.

Whereas Zurich is a more strawberry hue.

I’ll probably pick up more colors the next time I’m at the store – it’s just a really cheap and easy product for an everyday, comfortable lip.

  2. Great post! I have never tried any of the Soft Matte Lip Creams but I am obsessed with the butter glosses! I will have to throw a couple of these in my cart on ULTA.com and test them out! xoxo
