Pucker Up! | NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp and Milan.

Remember how I fell head over heels in love with Addis Ababa? It's been months since my love affair with this lippy began, and although I'll never get tired of wearing this shade, I decided it's time to try other shades from the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream line.

My first choice was Sau Paolo, but this shade is just too elusive. It's almost always out of stock each time I search for it! And so I went for Antwerp and Milan instead, which I bought from Skye Avenue some three or four weeks ago.

They're on sale at Php 250 each. That's 30 pesos off from the original retail price.

As always, it comes with a doe foot applicator and has the same yummy scent as Addis Ababa. Both shades are highly-pigmented, colors are buildable, and dry into a lovely matte finish.

Don't forget to wear a lip balm underneath these Lip Creams! (I use EOS, in case you're wondering.) You wouldn't want your lips to look parched and dry while wearing these lovely colors.

Antwerp is a pretty shade of coral that, when worn, tends to brighten one's face. The color is suitable for daytime wear and absolutely perfect for the summer. (It's now summer in the Philippines, by the way.)

Milan, on the other hand, is a neutral pink shade that looks quite natural on the lips. On days when I'm too lazy to go through my full makeup routine, I reach for this lippy and wear it together with one of my favorite BB creams.

What I love:
- Gorgeous shades
- Highly-pigmented
- Buildable colors
- Nice scent
- Stays on your lips for hours
- Kiss-proof
- Affordable price
- Cruelty-free (not tested on animals)

What you might not like:
- Has a tendency to dry out the lips (nothing a good lip balm can't handle, though).

You look great in both. Milan is soft and pretty, it looks good, but I prefer Antwerp - it has that "pow" factor going for it.
Great review!

I've heard so many good things about NYX's Lip Creams. you can definitely tell that the color pay off is good, like most NYX products. Super like Antwerp. It will go perfectly well with my collection :D

Both have easy too carry shades and it looks great for regular wear.

I love lipstick that goes on more like a gloss. These colors are both beautiful on you.

Looks good on you both the lippies dear!!ang fresh mo tngnn! love the antwerp best! xx said...

I have one of these and I must say I love the product consistency. I also use my EOS as a base because it does really make my lips look chapped if I don't apply a lip balm before using this lip cream.

Ooooh! Those are the perfect pinks! I love them:)

I really want to try this matte lip cream from Nyx too. Now you're making me want to buy it more! I love the shades you picked...I was curious if these could hide pigmented lips, but I guess they do since you said they are buildable. Thanks for this great review! Bibili na ako! lol!
