NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp
|I am finally reviewing the infamous soft matte lip cream of NYX. A lot of people are raving about it. I got really curious. I tried Antwerp because I was in my quest for a nice peachy pink shade (but more on the peach side). I bought this for 270 pesos from Starmaine Shop. I was very excited to try it (as in ibang level ang excitement ko!). When I finally get to try it on my lips, my instant reaction was - WTH!?!!?! hahaha Yup! My reaction was like that! I was expecting too much from this product. Oh the agony of immersing yourself on a makeup hype that did not reach your expectation!!!! Sigh!|
|The brush applicator is the ordinary doe foot applicator. It is bigger than my ELF lip stain.|
|I need to apply two to three coats of the product to get this look. It is not too drying compared to ELF lip stain.|
Over all, I really think that it depends on the shade you are buying. Antwerp is really sheer on my dark and pigmented lips. If I bought Addis Abba or Sau Paulo, probably my review would have been a bit different.Also, I was expecting a lot from this product. I really thought that it would exceed my fondness for my ELF Fashionista lip stain since the blogging world is raving about this. I felt bewildered because I was the only one
(Am I the only one?? speak up people!!! haha) who did not like this product. I have to test the other shades. The other colors might change my mind, don't you think? I am really into pigmentation and lasting effect and in both cases, this product failed my standards.
Have a nice day ahead!! Godbless everyone!
