I am big fan of lip cream that dry matte and I am constantly looking for those kind of formulas. I got the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Amsterdam last year around Christmas and once the winter was gone I kind of forgot about it. Recently I was throwing away the old junk make up when I found it and started using again! So today I have a review on it for you all!
About The Looks!
The lip cream comes in a round packaging just like of a lip gloss. The part that contains the lip cream is of the color of the shade, in this case it is red and the cap is black with velvet matte texture. The cap twists open and the wand has a doe foot applicator which is a good news. I like the packaging, its chic, attractive and sturdy. Its easy to locate the shade because the whole tube is the color of the shade.

My experience with the shade Amsterdam!
The very first thing I love is the color! Its a beautiful red color which under the shade looks like a cool toned red and in sunlight a warm red. But overall its a lovely color! The color looks prettier due to its texture. The lip cream dries absolutely matte on the lips and after its set it won’t come off! Even though the lip cream has a matte finish, it does not dries out your lips, it feels very light, you won’t even feel you are wearing a lipstick!
The lip cream is quite thick almost like a mascara, so sometimes it gets deposited at some places, you would need to be a little careful while applying it. You would just need to even out and spread the lip cream which gets stuck at some places. This is the only part that irritates me a little, but I can manage that because I love the color very much!
The pigmentation is amazing! Just one swipe you get a lovely opaque red color! You certainly wouldn’t need to layer it but just even it out!
It does not settles in to the fine lines and makes your lips look fuller too! It doesn’t bleed or transfer, but with meals and drinks the lipstick will start to fade away. That is due to licking of our lips while eating. So this will stay for a very long time without any meals or drink, I’d say for about 6-8 hours, after meals its going to fade and disappear.
I really love this lip cream! Its light on lips with matte finish without drying my lips out and with a lovely red color and bang on pigmentation!! I can work with the uneven application because it can corrected easily. I would certainly get more shades from this collection! I highly recommend it for the red lip lovers!!
