First Impression, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (SMLC04 London)

Although not exactly drugstore, NYX makeup brand prices are within drugstore range and NYX is the single most affordable makeup brand at Sephora.

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams (SMLC) has an almost cult following among the YouTube beauty community so I said hey, it’s about time I tried it out. So I picked up a nude colour that I can actually use.

My thoughts:

It is a liquid to matte lip product that dries and sets on the skin. The shade I have here is a brownish nude colour perfect for tanned skin people. It smells like dessert and I absolutely love that! It has a mousse-y texture and it is pretty long lasting. Overall I really do think this lip cream is pretty amazing. The darker colours may be trickier to work with. LOVE!!!

Price; MYR 30 (also depends your source of purchase)

Where to buy; Sephora (nationwide), FS Boutique (on mainland Penang, Facebook page link here).

  1. Just got myself a NYX a couple of weeks back. A Jumbo Lip Pencil though. A Burgundy Bourgogne. Loving it! Looking our for matte’s. I am trying to stay away from lip creams, anything liquid because I am not into glossy lips. From your review, I am tempted try this lip cream now, thanks to you, cause it doesn’t look anything close to glossy! A question- when it sets, is it that light over multiple applications? ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Hey, nope, it is a matte lip cream, it doesn’t look glossy at all. It will initially move around a tiny bit on the lips but when it does set you’ll notice it.
      About the lightness, it depends on the colour. The darker and red shades are pretty opaque, so one swipe and you get desired colour.
