There’s this trend going on this season of matte lips, so even though I’m not a huge fan of matte finishes, over the past few weeks I’ve kept on testing and trying out different lip products. NYX Monte Carlo Soft Matte Lip Cream came my way recently along with other NYX makeup products that I already told you about briefly when I announced the opening of first NYX store in Bucharest. Right from the start the idea of a matte lip cream was more friendly to me, considering the formula would be creaming and slightly hydrating comparing with matte finish lipsticks which can be difficult to wear sometimes.

NYX Monte Carlo Soft Matte Lip Cream (29.00 Lei / $6.00 / £5.50 for 0.27 fl oz / 8 ml) appears to me like a medium-dark red with a hint of raspberry to it, cool undertones and a matte finish. It dries down in a couple of minutes to a soft matte finish and gets completely matte within an hour.
