I have never really been one to have a huge beauty product collection. I am more of a minimalist when it comes to make-up: just enough to make me presentable! But lately, I have been playing around with lip colors, as you have probably noticed on my blog. So here is a short love note to my favorite product from NYX Cosmetics!
I tend to have an oily complexion, so I feel weird wearing anything with gloss, like I am doubling up on the shine. So for me, a matte lip works best. While pursuing Ulta Cosmetics a few months ago, I came across this product NYX called Soft Matte Lip Cream. I dove in headfirst with a red (Amsterdam), and then have expanded my collection to include some pinks and oranges. It goes on buttery soft, and stays for a few good hours before having to do any touch-ups (I usually reapply after lunch). It definitely is matte though and will dry out lips, so I put on a layer of chapstick first to provide a bit more moisture. I love their bold colors and easy application (with a wand, not a stick). Plus, they name their lip colors after awesome cities, so what is there not to love?!
