NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams | My Top 4 + Swatches

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams | My Top 4 + Swatches

Around the time of my birthday, I was lucky enough to receive a NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault, containing 36 shades of the popular lip product in a mini, travel size (thanks mum! <3).

Having already owned two of them previously, I knew the formula well, making them one of my favourite lip products, so you can guess that I was elated to be able to try and test out more shades.

This product has a creamy texture , making it easy to apply. Upon application, it eventually dries to a matte finish, providing longevity that will outlast a glossy alternative. This alone is a major selling point for me.

In this blog post I’ll be sharing my top 5 shades within this collection, and hopefully give you some ideas of some new lip shades to try out. These are shades that I wear on a regular basis and will not hesitate to buy in the full size.


If I ever want to rock a classic red lip, this is the first product I gravitate towards. It really is the most perfect red shade, and compliments my fair skin well.


 Want to wear a vampy lip as we head into Autumn/Winter? Well Copenhagen is for you! A deep burgundy/purple colour – an absolute favourite of mine.


I took a pill in Ibiza…well not really ;), but the lip shade is great for a bit of a wearable pop of colour. Great for if you want some pinky tinge with a hint of red, but don’t want to go all out with hot bubblegum pink.


Fancy a bit of a nude change, but still want a hint of pink? I’ve got you covered. Give Zurich a go! For me, I could classify it as a ‘my lips but better’ shade, perfect for a natural, effortless look.

There you have it! My top 4 picks from NYX’s soft matte lip creams. Have you tried this product? If so what do you think and what are your favourite shades?
