NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream SMLC05 Antwerp Review & Price in India



Hello Ladies,

I am a proud lipstick addict! Earlier I used to be a lip gloss lover..then i started liking creme-y lipsticks after that i fell for matte lipsticks..well i still love matte lipsticks very much. But now I have moved onto Liquid Lipsticks. I did tried a few liquid lipsticks in the past..but was not in love..the way I am now..since I first used NYX SOFT Matte Lip Cream :) I'll show one shade from NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream range that i got about two months back. Oh I love this one..infact it's become my favorite kind of pink shade now :) I am talking about the shade SMLC05, let's zoom in to know more:





What Brand says:



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.


Price: Rs.540/- for 8ml (Sephora)
     
Shelf Life: 30 months

Shades Available: Available in 22 gorgeous colors

Ingredients:






Made in P.R.C


My experience with this:


Packaging:


The lip cream has a regular cylindrical shaped tube packaging on which description is printed in black, shade name is provided at the bottom as well as on the sticker on cap. I like the screw open cap..which is rubber finished for a good grip :) The wand inside is short and has stiff, velvety and full of micro fibers  doe foot applicator..the wand is sure not the best kinds I have used so far..It could have been better(I am talking about the stiffness).
Overall I liked the packaging..it's attractive in it's own way yet very simple and practical!

Fragrance:


This lip cream has sweet fragrance that reminds me of toffees :D but it's strong for my sensitive nose.


Color & Coverage:


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream ANTWERP is a mid tone pastel coral(slight hint) pink shade which simply looks amazing on lips. It not bright but soft and subtle but turns a bit intense on layering. The shade is simply perfect for summer season specially for fresh day looks.
It looks brighter on swatch but it's a very subtle elegant shade. You can play it up for intense color or just layer it once for subtle pastel color..but it looks great in both ways.
The shade Antwerp delivers pretty good color payoff. It gives medium to high coverage in single swipe and can be build up to ummm..almost full opaque coverage by layering it another time.

Formula & Finish:


The lip cream has cream butter like texture that makes the cream just glide on lips smoothly. No tugging or pulling. It has a quick drying formula that in a matter of a minute transforms liquid cream to powder matte.
Once dried the lip cream delivers proper powder matte finish without feeling dry on lips.



Wear Time:


It stays well on my lips for say about 7 hour easily without any smudge or fade and survives drinks and food. But I noticed it's intensity fades when you eat anything cream-y butter-y.

Affordability: 


Okay the actual price of these NYX lip creams are 6 USD(that's 360 Indian Rupees) yeah pretty affordable but as the brand is not directly available in India, so the price the Indian websites charge are almost double. I bought this from Sephora Saket and they also charge almost close to the double price. I wish NYX open their stores here soon :/



Pros:


1. Good travel friendly packaging
2. Beautiful pastel coral pink shade perfect for summers
3. Delivers medium to almost full buildable coverage
4. Butter smooth texture helps in easy smooth application
5. Quick dry formula that turn from liquid to matte
6. Delivers perfect powder matte finish
7. Very good wear time



Cons:


1. Not fragrance free
2. The applicator wand could have been better
3. Limited availability offline



Overall Rate: 4.8/5


Verdict: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Antwerp is a gorgeous mid tone pastel coral pink color..very apt for summers. The shade is subtle and perfect for achieving fresh day look. It delivers medium to high buildable coverage and has liquid cream formula that dries quickly and gives perfect powder matte finish. A very gorgeous shade for summers. Recommended!
