I got two NYX Soft Matte Lip Cremes in Antwerp and Stockholm.  Antwerp is a hot, peachy-pink color and Stockholm is a pinky-nude color.

Both of these lip cremes have a matte finish and are extremely light-feeling on the lips. I got about 4 hours wear before I had to touch these up. These have a sweet scent, like vanilla frosting. The only drawback to these is that if you have any sort of flaking or texture imperfections on your lips, these lippies will show it. Make sure your lips are exfoliated and smooth before applying these.

Overall, I love the color options and staying power of these lip cremes. The matte finish is also a nice deviation from most lip products out there. NYX, I think I’m in love!

Orange lips are in for Spring and I had to get on the bandwagon! This lipstick is a semi-opaque, matte orange. It applied smoothly and effortlessly. I was a little disappointed with the wear (I got 3 hours w/lip liner) and it faded unevenly. This lipstick was also a bit drying. One pro of this lipstick is that did not have much of a scent.

Overall, I don’t really care for this lipstick. I like the color of this lipstick, and that’s where my love for this lipstick ends.
