NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp (Swatches and First Impression)

I know NYX's lip products are raved about on YouTube and other blogs. We don't really have it in stores here in the Philippines, so I wasn't able to try it right away.

I was really excited to try this out for the first time!

When worn

First Impressions:
It does go on silky and look matte, as written on the tube. I used the applicator, but I find it hard to apply evenly. After the application with the doe-foot applicator, I use my ring finger to even out the color.

After a while, the product looks dry on my lips. I found that using a clear balm on top of it would get rid of the dry look. The product deposits on my lip cracks (the lines you can see on my lips), I don't know if I just didn't moisturize my lips properly, or the product just does this. It was good for long wear, but it should constantly be evened out, or I'll have lip-crack marks.

Aside from that, I love the color I chose. I also love the texture.

Antwerp is surely an everyday color, at least for me. However, overall, I don't find this product easy to wear.

What do you think about this product? Am I the only one who feels like this?

Hope you enjoyed this entry!
