NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick & Soft Matte Lip Cream

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in “Cream” & NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “Stockholm”

I love so many of the NYX products, but sadly I’ve recently had two “mehs” from this line, both lip products (which is really too bad after experiencing the loveliness that is the NYX Butter Glosses). I’m just not feelin the NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick or the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream.

I received the Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in my December Ipsy Bag and have tried to like this lipstick. I was excited about it because NYX reformulated this line. Previously, the NYX Round Lipsticks with the curlicue  design on the packaging (which don’t seem to be available in Canada anymore) had a very strong icky, perfumey scent and taste. I literally threw mine out after wearing it once. The new Extra Creamy Round Lipsticks thankfully don’t have the perfumey taste. They don’t smell great, but it’s a mild scent that doesn’t bother me.  But the formula is only ok. It feels almost greasy or oily on the lips and is pretty sheer. Maybe it’s just the “Cream” shade? Please let me know if any of the other shades are worth trying out.

I tried the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream because it was getting a lot of good reviews and was being compared to the OCC Lip Tars. NYX describes it as “Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish…surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.” I don’t hate this, but I don’t love it either. It’s just not something I reach for. I find it a little uncomfortable to wear and it tends to dry out my lips.

    What a let down after the butter glosses. Do you find the soft matte lip creams to be long-lasting, at least?

    • Thanks for your comment & question. Honestly, I couldn’t comment on how long-lasting they are because the several times I tried to wear it, I ended up having to take it off or apply lip balm (which removed the product). I think some people do like these, but the texture and feel of it on my lips was definitely not for me.
