The current trend for matte lips has been around for a while, but has managed to bypass my make up collection, well this week I thought I would give it a try.
I bought NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in shade 16 a really lovely pinky nude shade, I had visions of having chalky dry lips that cracked and looked pretty rough after a couple of hours, not so with this lip cream, it is highly pigmented so you dont need tons, while looking matte it is soft and creamy and never feels dry at all, in fact it feels quite moisturising ( odd I know ) it has a light almost fruity fragrance, and if you like Matte I think it is definately one to pop on your shopping list, and at £5.50 I would say pretty well priced too.
I didn't like it, not that I didn't like to product, I didn't like it on me, I honestly have to say that the look is fabulous on someone young, and the girls who wear it look gorgeous, I didn't, I think on a mature face it just looks dull and ageing.
At least I tried to be trendy, but think I will stick with my shimmer glosses, far better suited to this old face of mine.
Please don't be put of this lippie it's fabulous, just not on me :)
