Ever since I got this nyx soft lip cream for my birthday, I've been wanting to post it. It is something I've been eyeing but haven't decided whether to buy or not because it is something out of my comfort box. However, my friends surprised me and got it instead. I am glad they did as it has been an absolute favourite.
Before applying the lipstick, I start off with outlining my lips with s-he lip liner in a shade 003. It is much similar to the nyx lip cream than it looks on the photo, I promise. When I outline my lips, I also drag the lip liner inside and fill it in. I don't want to be left off with only an eyeliner in case my lipsticks wears off. Then, it is time to apply lip cream. The aplicator is easy to control, but you have to be careful around the edges. The product is more sheer than I wanted it to be and if you want to get that perfect dark shade, you have to apply it at least twice. If not, you can be left off with patches of skin/lips shoving through. Other than that, I find it great to wear. It takes a few minutes to dry out and once it does, it gives a matt finish. I found out I can also drink and eat without smearing the lipstick much off.
Are you fond of nyx lipsticks? Which one is a favourite of yours?
