Soft Matte Lips

Hi my lovelies! Just wrapped up filming on a new health video :) Love doing those in particular because I know you guys enjoy them :) It should be up in a couple of days! This morning when doing my makeup, I went for this beautiful pink lip color from NYX. It is their Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade San Paulo ($5.99 at Ulta). These have been out for a while now, so nothing new, but they are very unique in their texture. Just as described on their website, they're not a lipstick nor a lip gloss - but somewhere in between. It applies wet, with a traditional doe-foot applicator, and then sets a few seconds later to a very soft and matte finish which lasts for hours. Another color I love is Amsterdam which is a gorgeous vibrant red as well as Antwerp - a beautiful coral pinky color.

I personally love a matte lip (and they tend to last longer as well) and I find this color so gorgeous! If your lips are naturally dry, just make sure your exfoliate and moisturize them before applying any matte lipstick. Have you guys experimented with these lip cremes? What do you think of this color? XOXO

    1. We do have NYX in Europe. I know that NYX products are sold in certain stores in Germany (the chain is called Douglas).

  3. Oh this color is absolutely lovely! It reminds me almost of Persian Melon from Revlon's Moon Drops lipstick, but I think this NXY lip cream is even cheaper and probably doesn't smell weird. The color almost matches the flowers behind you too!

  8. This brand is not avaiable in Europe :(
    There are a couple of on line stores that sell this brand but this lip cream is around 12 dolars! It´s too expensive.
    Love you Annie :)

  14. I have antwerp and its awesome! I usually put it on top of a thin layer of Revlon's Pink in the Afternoon and it lasts the whole day. Sao Paulo was also on my list to buy next. We have similar taste ;)

  25. Are you sure this is San Paolo? When I look on the ulta website, san paolo looks like a brownish color: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?skuId=2226183&productId=xlsImpprod3020045&navAction=push&navCount=1&subdoc=2226183-amsterdam#sku2226189

  27. What lip liner would you suggest for the NYX lip cream in Monte Carlo? NEed help.

  28. This color looks so much like Addis Ababa rather than San Paolo...unless your camera/lighting makes it looks different.
    I just don''t see how this shade: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9Eupi3ar85Y/TjwnNaPQZXI/AAAAAAAAh48/a8DMt1ytqLw/s1600/DSC_0276.JPG
    and yours can be one and the same.
