Hi luvs,

Today I’ll be sharing a review of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, I picked these up a few weeks ago in the shade Amsterdam and Addis Ababa

Product Description:
“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. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.”

First off, I absolutely love the packaging, the sleek tubes and black matte bottle cap had me at hello :)

These are my very first matte lip creams and I now understand what the hype is all about. It’s like having the best of both worlds. It applies creamy but dries to a gorgeous matte finish.

These are very pigmented and give lots of coverage with one application. It barely feels like you’re wearing anything on your lips, which I absolutely love. They are also not drying and do not expose dry cracked lips like most matte lip products do.

The only downside is I found that they do not last a long time 4 to 5 hours at most and reapplication is needed specifically after a drink or/and a meal.

Addis Ababa is a bright vibrant neon pink with cool blue undertones. I love this color and it’s one I usually gravitate to when buying lip products. The only downside with this one is it did apply a little streaky. I’m not sure if this is common or unique for the one I have.

Amsterdam is a warm shade of rosy, dusty, almost brownish red. Out of the two colors, I’m actually surprised that I love this one more. This product applies very smooth and with even coverage. It’s currently my favorite shade of red :)

The pictures do not do the pigmentation of these justice. For a more accurate swatch checkout my video below:

For those of you in Stockholm you can find these at the NYX store in the Gallerian at Kungstradgarden. They do not have the full collection but they do have a few including some of the popular ones.

XOXO,

Dee

Hi luvs,

YAY it’s Friday, I hope you’re having a wonderful day :) Today, I’d like to share my basic outfit otherwise also known as my uniform. One item that is an absolute wardrobe essential for me is a blazer. I just love how they have the ability to upgrade an outfit. Turning a basic outfit into something polished that makes you look like you put in a lot more effort than you did.

Although it’s summer, it’s still chilly and rainy here on some days. On days like this my blazer keeps me warm and is the perfect piece to layer up my summer outfits.

Anything stripes is another wardrobe staple for me, I actually used to hate stripes because they reminded me of prison uniform. But lately I’ve grown to love them, especially when paired with other colors like red it can look very classy and chic.
