#TRIED’N’TESTED – NYX MATTE LIP CREAM


After trying purchasing the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit I thought I’d try these NYX matte lip creams to compare as they’re only £5.

I ordered 2 shades, Athens and Stockholm. Athens from ASOS and Stockholm from Feel Unique. Being honest though, I don’t think I’m going to bother buying make up from ASOS again. A friend of mine purchased a NYX Mascara and it arrived all dried up as if it had been opened. It wasn’t until my lip cream from Feel Unique arrived did I realise how dried up my ASOS lip cream was. I don’t know if it’s cause it’s old stock they want rid of or what? Weird.


In the pictures the shades looked slightly different but when they arrived I realised how similar they were! Athens has more of a peachy under tone to it than Stockholm. They can be blended with so many different nude lip liners and brands to create a block colour or ombré effect on the lip.

On the lips they feel creamy and slightly moisturising. I always apply my NYX Lip Primer underneath to create a base and keep the product on longer. The pigment isn’t as good as the Kylie Lip Kit, if you apply a second layer you get slight streaks on your lips. But what I love about these is that they’re the perfect affordable everyday lippy. They do have a soft creamy texture which feels lightweight on the lips and doesn’t dry your lips out at all.

Since writing this I’ve purchased more, London and Abu Dhabi (both nudes) and Copenhagen (deep burgundy colour). London is my absolute favourite and I think it might be my perfect go to nude! Copenhagen is nice but it really doesn’t suit my skin tone, it would look beaut on a darker skin tone.

These are cheap and cheerful and an absolute bargain! Perfect to keep in your handbag of desk at work for a pop of colour on your lips.
