I know you have heard a lot of things about NYX's matte lip cream. What else has not been said? Hehe.
This is included on my make up top picks for 2011. I've always wanted to try a matte red lipstick because of watching Captain America twice. But I did not want to shell out on Nars or MAC lipstick.
I've actually had these babies for awhile (I've been using Stockholm since August) and I always catch myself looking for these lip creams when I don't know what to put on my lips.
Amsterdam on my lips
Istanbul on my lips
I didn't post a photo of me wearing Stockholm because I have already posted a photo on my previous post of myself wearing it. I love these lip creams! Of course it has its cons of defining your lip lines but it's bearable for me. I do not mind retouching. Sometimes, I use EOS lip balm prior to application of the lip cream. But doing that defeats the purpose of the lip cream being matte. I don't mind though. If I'm not mistaken, these lip creams are available in 12 shades and I'm thinking of getting all the shades or at least restocking these 3 lip creams that I have. My only tip to those who haven't tried this lip cream is this: if you don't mind showing a bit of lip lines, then try this. If it matters to you a whole lot (showing of lip lines), then ditch this product.
