In this post I will be talking about a lip shade which is not for faint hearts. It is Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in shade Transylvania. As name itself gives hint that it is a lip cream which is matte in nature so let’s begin 😉
Price: 600 Rs
Qt: 8 ml
Packaging: Lip cream comes in cylindrical tube with matte black screw cap which close on firmly. A nice doe foot applicator attached inside the cap by which you can precisely line your lips. The body is transparent so you can identify the shade easily which further carries all the necessary information related the products. Shade name and number is stick on a paper at the bottom. Over all packaging is sleek and comfortable to travel.
Shade: Transylvania is a dark berry shade, not exactly purple or mauve but a mix of both and hence a dark berry/plum shade. It’s the darkest shade in the selection.
My opinion about the product: It has soft mousse kind of consistency with super creamy texture which glides on the lips like dream. It gives smooth and even finish in just two swipes. Excellent pigmentation, just 2 swipes are needed to show the color to its fullest. Gives striking matte finish every time. This is quite creamy when applied but after few minutes or so the finishes become completely matte, smudge- proof and kiss-proof. It is the most comfortable matte lipsticks I have ever. It does not dry up the lips or settle down into lip lines or dry patches. So you do not need to apply lip balm before or after.
It stays on for like 6+ hours with little snacking and drinking in between. But if you eat anything oily the color just vanishes off leaving a light tint behind. The things that I complain about are the price, not so pocket friendly and the availability. Even in the online most of the shades are always out of stock.
This lip cream is definitely a good option but not a every day shade. So if you are looking for a bit different shade than go for it 🙂
