I have been wanting to write this review for a while now because I keep mentioning this product all the time but never actually published a review.
Let’s all agree, although affordable, NYX is rather overpriced here in Malaysia which is why I feel like the dupe I found for it was worth while because the dupe is a third of the price (post here). I even wrote a first impressions post about this (post here). It is also noteworthy that Collection Cosmetics is being pulled from the drugstores in Malaysia (why can’t we never have nice things???)…
Description: It is a liquid to matte type lipstick. The product isn’t entirely liquid, hence the name lip cream. It doesn’t dry down fast like a typical matte liquid lipstick. Comes in 8ml product.
Where to buy: Sephora outlets nationwide.
Price: MYR 30
I used it in one of my recent collaboration to create a summer look. I only use a light layer.
Comfortable on the lips.
Opaque (I have rather darker upper lips and it manages to cover it).
Long lasting (a good 4-5 hours before it fades; unless one eats).
These SMLCs comes in a wide range of colours; definitely worth a mention.
Doesn’t reapply too bad.
Picks up on dry patches.
Settles into wrinkle on the lips (but doesn’t exaggerate them).
Dries out the lips a bit.
Something to note is that it doesn’t dry down fast like a liquid lipstick does. The thinner the layer the faster it dries. When it dries down, it does dry down completely matte.
I kinda love this product!
