NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams: Milan & San Paulo

As you probably know Shop at Sarah has recently stocked up on more NYX products! I was so excited for this because they finally brought in some of the other NYX stuff that I have been waiting for like the Rouge Cream blushers and of course, the Soft Matte Lip Creams! I wanted to get all the shades but that would be suicidal for my wallet so I bought two instead. I like to think that I have a strong mindset and that I am in control of my spendings lol

Milan is a beautiful pink shade with a slightly blue undertone whereas San Paulo is a darker pink, somewhat berry shade which is perfect for a night time look! I love these!! It's like cream lipstick but only better because once you give it a minute or two, these lip creams will set and it will not budge for the rest of the day! I find that they last about 6-8 hours on me, which is pretty amazing considering that I ate, drank from a straw and did a lot of talking within that 6-8hours. 

The NYX matte lip creams, true to their words have a matte finish once they set on the lips. From the swatches alone you can already tell how crazily pigmented they are! And I really like the packaging too with the compact tube and matte black cap! Although the product itself differ slightly in color in comparison to the tube's packaging, it gives a pretty good idea as to what the colors look like in real life.

 I guess the only problem I have with these are that they have a pretty distinct scent. I can't quite put my finger on what the lip creams smell like but if I had to describe them in words I'd say they smell like candies... that don't taste so good. lol My dad said they smell like berries? haha

 I've also spotted Beautycrush from youtube wearing San Paulo in her recent videos and it looked gorgeous on her! Overall I really like these even though I'm not a big fan of the scent. I'll definitely go back and try some more of their other shades. Been eyeing the bright red for a while now, maybe it's time to get it? I'm also looking forward to trying the Xtreme lip creams! The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams retail for B$16.90 at Shop at Sarah's.
