NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAMS: THE NUDES

London, Abu Dhabi and Stockholm. Unfortunately, I've only been to one of those cities but these three shades have made the top of my list from the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams.
These lip creams are somewhere between a traditional lipstick and a liquid lipstick and were the first of the 'liquid' type formulas to make their way into my collection.

I picked up the shade Abu Dhabi at IMATS London 2015 and since it's been my go to shade for everyday wear because it's not that different from my natural lip colour. I picked up the shades London and Stockholm when NYX launched on the UK market at Selfridges and is also available from stockists such as Boots.

Although I love a bold lip, I was in need of some nudes that suit work with my complexion. The soft matte lip creams come in a wide variety of shades and there is definitely a 'nude' for every skin tone. They also apply like a dream, very smooth and in a couple of swipes you have an opaque finish.

The texture is creamy so they aren't super long lasting. The combination of the creaminess and matte finish makes for a really interesting product. Although you have to top them up throughout the day, it is totally worth it and I much prefer them to lipsticks.

Below are some swatches - from left to right are London, Abu Dhabi and Stockholm.

London is a slightly paler nude with warm undertones so girls with similar olive tones to me can definitely get away with this one.

Abu Dhabi is a 'your lips but better' type of shade, a gorgeous nude with more brown in it.

Finally Stockholm, this as you can see is a more pink toned nude without being too bright.

I wanted to point out that the packaging for these are very similar, however the shades are different. Which one is your favourite? Let me know if there are any other shades I need to pick up. I definitely can't rave about these enough and at only £5.50 each, you can buy as many as you want...
