There's A New Soft Matte Lip Cream In Town

Hi everyone!

Remember when we all wanted Kylie Jenners ''non-filled'' lips? I remember finding a post on Pinterest which was basically a chart of all the colours she used on her lips and matched to equivalent colours from drugstore brands . One look that really struck me was matched with NYX soft matte lip cream in Stockholm, that was probably my first encounter with matte lips as at the time I had around 3 lipsticks, now I have 303....

I'm wearing it here!
I did love the colour range from the NYX ones, and I have about 3 of them but I found they were quiet drying and uncomfortable on the lips at times, and that wand....omg was the bain of my life!! It's hard and removes as much product as it puts on, to get a decent application you need to use a make up brush, having said that I did use up all my Stockholm one, I just adored the colour. But I am glad to report I have found and alternative with a better wand  and I don't find it drying at all, it's the new matte Lip Paint from L'Oréal and it comes in a squeezy tube with the same style wand as the NYX but much fluffier and curves your lips which makes applying it 100 times easier

I chose number 201 Hollywood Beige and its a fabulous, nudie coral colour. Its really subtle, great for summer but it is also going to be a great colour for the cooler months thanks to its warm tone. Their lasting power is amazing, even after eating and drinking it didn't budge, after wearing it for a full day I only topped it up once simply just to bring back the colour a bit.

I suffer ALL the time from dry lips and this doesn't highlight that I fact it covers the dryness, I do always try to moisturise my lips before I apply any lipstick but sometimes I just don't have time but with this I don't have to worry about it anymore!! A definite 10/10 from me! Now here's hoping they launch as many colours as the NYX range! (fingers crossed)

You can buy them here for €9.99.

Hope you enjoyed! Thanks for reading,
