NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'San Paulo' [Review & Swatches]

Remember my NYX haul !!! From my NYX haul under the spotlight today 'NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo'.



NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

Neither lipstick not lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.

My Verdict

Matte lipstick or matte lip color lover!! That's what I am. The moment you unscrew the lid first thing you will notice is warm delicious vanilla scent along with having soft, air-whipped, buttery smooth texture.

''San Paulo'' is a gorgeous Plumy-Pink which leans towards more of a pink side than plum. Having very warm plumy warm undertone it is very much wearable color on a daily basis. It's such a warm shade of pink for me that instantly brightens up my face without screaming out so loud and doesn't look garish or neon-y on my NC-35 skin tone. In my opinion fair to medium skin complexion can nail it easily.

Single swipe gives insanely pigmented color and opaque coverage and settles into matte finish. Despite the fact that, these are are matte lip cream but to my surprise they are non-drying and the matte finish is so polished and healthy looking but if you are who is having dry/flaky lips then applying a thin film of lip balm underneath prior application is must. As the formula is so light and air-whipped I hardly detect that I'm wearing anything on my lips. If applied lightly and carefully it looks like more of a lip stain that feels so natural.

Although formula is non-drying and long lasting but I don't like the fact that they look great for initial 2-3 hours and after that starts accentuating fine lines and highlight dryness awfully by giving them dry cracked appearance. Also I've noticed it doesn't fade evenly so I keep it in my makeup bag for the constant touch ups.


You Might Like It


  • You are looking for matte liquid lipstick.
  • You want long-lasting, non-sticky formula.
  • You are looking for a light-weight formula.
  • You like air-whipped and feather light texture.
  • You are on a budget.

You Might Not Like It

  2. I usually have dry lips and I don't know how it would work out for me. Still, after a good lip balm and for a special occasion I think it would do me justice. The picture is beautiful, that mouth is sexy!

    1. Having lip balm underneath might help you though the formula is non-drying but has tendency to highlight fine lines. And OMG!! Thank you :)) xxxx

  32. I like the color but it’s saddening that it highlights fine lines of the lips.

    ReplyDelete
  33. See that the product got its pros and cons! Winter is arriving soon, so better wait until spring comes, as lips tend to get flaky.

  46. it is a beautiful shade..but if it dries up the lips up 2-3 hours I would think twice before getting it..I hate having the chapped/flaky lips feeling.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Im also a matte girl but im currently using a cream lipstick and I don't like that I can feel it when im wearing it. This is just what I need a natral lightweight feel.

  57. I have this product in my wishlist for so long but I don`t dare to buy it because I don`y know exactle how bad will dry my lips. I love the colors..and perhaps someday I`ll buy one, I just hope to resist until summer comes :D

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  59. Looking for matte gloss/lipstick like the lime crime velvetines! This looks somewhat similar, obviously it will not be the exact same but I will need to give it a try

    ReplyDelete
  60. I have this in the exact same shade! And if you read my blog you will find out that I have repurchased this recently! It also featured in my top five lippies post :) However I do agree it can be drying on the lips
