Hello lovelies! Today’s post is going to be part of a new series that I’m trying out!
It’s going to be called Nonstop; I want to use this series to showcase products I’ve been using nonstop and that I can’t get enough of.
Today, I wanted to show the NYX soft matte lip cream in Cannes. I talked about it in my last Monthly Product Review post, but I wanted to make a separate post for it because that’s how much I love it, haha. This was an impulse purchase because I thought the color was pretty, but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I do.
I predicted that even though it looked like a darker pink, I thought it would still show up quite bright on my lips. However, it turned out to be a really good match. I wouldn’t say it’s a perfect my lips but better shade, but it looks quite natural when I wear it and makes my lips look just a little more pink than usual. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be able to tell that I’m wearing anything.
The only other obvious hint that would reveal I’m actually wearing a lip product is that it’s a matte formula.
I’m the type where most lip products don’t last on me because I’m constantly biting my lips or doing something with my lips and the product ends up wearing off. I tend to do that stuff when I’m nervous or bored, so I always have to reapply my lipstick.
However, I get a good few hours out of this and the pigment stays on my lips quite well, even when eating as long as it’s not too messy. I always get a little uncomfortable with matte formulas, but I love how they look so I usually look past it.
I love wearing this product with more natural looks to give my face a bit more life and pull the look together, but I also like to wear this when I have more going on with my eyes and I want a more muted, natural lip. It has enough pigment to add a little color to my face, but it doesn’t overpower anything or draw attention to my lips.
Overall, I’ve definitely been wearing this nonstop and I love it. It’s perfect for the summer because it’s natural but still adds color to my lips, is super fuss free since it’s a matte lip cream, and goes with any look. I would definitely recommend looking into this if you have a similar skin tone to me.
I hope you liked this post and I’ll see you lovelies tomorrow!
