Review:NYX soft matte lip cream in Transylvania

Sunday, July 19, 2015

 Hello Boos! I see i have some gentlemen here once in a while *smiles*.I have been on a makeup purchase ban for a while.Why you ask? I gat a lot of other things to do with money and many buys are just on impulse not like i'm in dire need of that product,so i disciplined myself for a while.I even dodged the makeup fair which i wanted to go for for the first time but maybe next year-it will be a good reason to spoil myself silly.
 So one morning,you know how you look at food you can't taste? I was going through online stores,i do that especially when i have a wishlist and i just compare prices, and study what sites have most of what I need so that when i'm ready to buy I don't need to search and i saw one site had this NYX soft matte gloss.Now i have always wanted to buy this along with the shade Copenhagen-i love dark,vampy lippies and it was always out of stock.I even heard sometimes NYX runs out of it until after some time before they release another batch.Of  course i forgot my ban and placed an order for it.It got to me same day which was "gewd" and then i swatched because i was excited to try it out.
 Let's do Pro's & Con's.

  • It smells lovely- very  yummy scent
  • It is an actual soft matte lip cream-feels very gentle on the lips,no tugging at all and super easy to take off.
  • I love the shade-very grown woman 'ish'
  • Very small bottle and fits well into small spaces

  • It applies S-T-R-E-A-K-Y
  • It is not pigmented-you will need almost 6 coats to get  reasonable looking application
  • The product inside is so small in fact I feel mine is finished after one use.
  • It dries very slowly and it's best to build up the colour on a dry base so you have to wait till it's completely dry before putting on another coat.

I tried so hard to make my lip swatch as smooth as possible and honestly it was a lot of work and I don't think anybody should go through this much work to wear a lip product.

Rating; 4/10
Will i repurchase? HELL NO!
