NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Tokyo

"It's not a lipstick, nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before. It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte" (Taken from the product label).

It's the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. It's one of their newest products, and I'm so excited to try it. It was included in MyGlam bag along with other full size high-end products, which I paid only $10, so it's like getting it free. The shade I receive is in Tokyo. It's a pretty pale pink color. It's a tad bit pale for me, but I still like it. I think it more suitable for people who has pale to light medium skin tones.

What I like...
-The idea of  a lipstick cream. Cool!
-The texture is very rich and creamy.
-The doe-foot applicator makes it easy to apply.
-Opaque. One layer is enough to cover the lips. (Reminds me of the L'Oreal HiP Shine Struck Liquid Lipcolors)
-Doesn't bleed.
-The finish is really matte. Love it!

What I don't like...
-Can be a bit drying after 2 hours of wear. Next time, I'll make sure to moisturize well.

The swatch looks delicious! So creamy!

Price: $6
