NYX Cosmetics ; Soft Matte Cream Lips

For those of you who don't know already i'm relatively new to the make up and beauty trend as my passion has always been in fashion and the latest trends. However, over recent months I have found that beauty and fashion can go hand in hand and whether it's heavily applied make up and contouring or barely there 'fresh faced' make up i'm starting to realise it can kind of complete of a look! 

So, with that being said, one of my favourite beauty products to apply and invest in is a produce for the lips. Whether it be a lip balm, lip gloss or lipstick I have drastically expanded my collection over recent months and so I thought it was only right that whist trawling the internet and watching a number of Youtube videos that I invested in some of the NYX Cosmetics products in which I was hearing and seeing so much about! 

As far as i'm aware they used to be only available online in the UK  but recently they did start stocking the products a lot more in places such as Boots, Selfridges and various online websites. 

Now i've become a fan of 'feel unique' which caters to various beauty product needs and more and whilst I was going through in search of different things I came across the NYX Cosmetics brand and decided to add a few items to my basket.

Someone on Instagram (I can't remember the name right now of their page) but they were really helpful and a MUA and they recommended the 'Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi' so I chose 3 colours. 

Abu Dhabi - dark brown/nude
London - light brown/nude
Milan - pink

I thought I would go a little bit out of my comfort zone with the Milan shade and online it didn't look so pink more of a subtle tone. However, when it arrived it was a bright pink and although it isn't my usual shade, I did find it was very easy to apply and didn't dry my lips out. 
It would definitely be a nice colour to wear for Spring/Summer - Personally I just don't think it is for me. I would recommend it to those who are braver and able to pull off this shade. 

The other two however. Abu Dhabi and London I absolutely LOVE! I think they're both the perfect shades of nude/browns. They are really easy to apply and are soft on the lips, drying pretty quick to a matte tone and not drying on the lips at all. 

I've found that they don't last very long and you do have to reapply the lip cream every few hours but this hasn't put me off the product and I personally think it's quite hard to find a lipstick or lipgloss that doesn't wear off at all! 

I will admit there isn't much difference in the two shades and out of the two, if you're going to try any, I would recommend the Abu Dhabi shade. 
They're priced at £5.50 each which you can't really go wrong with and I would give the products a high 8/10 and highly recommend! 

You can find them here
Along with around 18 different shades.
