About brand:

NYX Cosmetics is a cosmetics company founded in Los Angelesby Toni Ko. Started as a small company in May 1999, it was named after Nyx, a Greek goddess of the night.

Product description:

Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this Mattee lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a Mattee finish. Soft Mattee Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some Matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.

The NYX Lip Creams are packaged in a standard lip gloss tube with a matte black cap. It has the product description and ingredients mentioned on it.  It comes with a doe foot applicator which helps in applying the lip cream evenly.

I got it from the Instagram store called cosmatica.in .

MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Yellow 6 Lake (CI 15985), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Red 6 (CI 15850), Red 7 (CI 15850), Red 28 Lake (CI 45410).



Product description:

  • The texture of this cream is a bit velvety with a silky sheen to it, but it settles down perfectly into a matte finish.
  •  Once it has set into a matte finish, the lip color does not budge or fade for hours.
  • As with any matte lip product it's important to exfoliate and moisturize lips before application. 
  • It is highly pigmented and a single coat gives you an opaque finish.
  • It lasted for 5-6 hours for me with light snaking.
  •  It will flake if your lips are too dry but that situation can be handled by putting a lip balm underneath your lipstick.

Pros:

  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Worth the price
  • Highly pigmented
  • Has lovely scent
  • Lasts really long
  • Creamy texture
  • Transfer proof
  • Matte finish

Cons:

  • It can highlight imperfections on dry or chapped lips.
