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!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp Swatch
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!
