NYX Soft matte lip creams are a favorite among makeup enthusiasts all over the world. Now that they are easily accessible in India, I picked up NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Morocco , this beautiful orange color from this range.
About the product:
Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favorite.
Packaging – NYX Soft matte lip creams come in a plastic tube in the corresponding colors. It has an applicator provided for easy application. The brush is nice and helps in neat application.
Shade – Nyx Morocco is a super bright orange shade of the liquid lipstick. I like to wear it with full intensity sometimes when am wearing full face makeup otherwise it would look too bright on me. It suits fair-medium skin very well and would wash your face out if you are above NC42. It can be worn as a light stain and that looks gorgeous as a light coral color. If you love wearing brights, you must check this out.
Texture & Formula – These lip creams have a soufflé like texture that applies evenly and beautifully. The cream is a bit thick but the brush helps you to pick little by little and blend it evenly. I did not find this shade cracking or super drying. Liquid lipsticks are a bit drying in general.
Pigmentation – It is super pigmented and I would suggest taking little by little. It dries within seconds of application and refuses to budge unless you use a cleansing milk or waterproof makeup remover.
Staying Power – NYX Soft matte lip cream Morocco stays put on me for a good 5-6 hours without drying my lips much. I have normal lips. I would suggest prepping your lips with a scrub and balm, wait for 2-3 minutes and then apply this to avoid dryness. After food and drinks, it fades from the centre and the outer corner remains the same which is a bit disappointing. The formula is very comfortable and the shade range is huge. These are pretty affordable (6$) in the US and are priced at 500-600 in India.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Morocco is priced at Rs. 600, available at nykaa.com
If you do not have a matte orange liquid lipstick in your stash and are comfortable wearing such a super bright color on the lips, then go for it. It is a beautiful orange that suits fair-medium skin really well. I also use NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Morocco to top off over a regular lipstick to enhance the staying power and it works really well.
