A few weeks ago, there was an Ipsy offer I couldn’t refuse, 5 NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams for $15! Seeing as they are about $5 each in my local Target, I couldn’t pass up this deal.
Years ago, NYX wasn’t even a majorly desired brand. I used to see it in the cheapie independent beauty stores and not think much of it, unless they had a nice pigment for sale. However, they have has a resurgence as of late, which is nice because they do have some pretty great products now.
I received the lip creams just a few days after ordering and got shades: Milan, Sydney, Istanbul, Stockholm, and Antwerp.

They are swatched in the order listed above.
I actually kind of like the formula. It is not dry like you expect most mattes to feel. It definitely feels like a cream, but because it dries to a matte look, you will need to prep/exfoliate you lips before using it, because it will show any cracks, dry skin, and imperfections you may have.
For me, this Soft Matte Lip Cream would be best used with a lipliner, or on top of a lipstick. I like them, they are worth the few bucks.
Do you own any of these lip creams? Do you like the NYX brand?
