NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream: Ibiza

I mentioned a little while ago that I picked up this gorgeous NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream at Feel Unique. I've been wearing for a couple of weeks now (and quite often I might add) and thought I would give a little review.  I got loads of compliments on this colour in my New Everyday Makeup Look so thought I would do a little more of an in-depth review! I've seen this circling the blogger world a lot recently and they've been quite hard to get my hands on them (I have a few more shades I would like hehe)

Firstly I am in love with the applicator. For £5.50 I really don't think the applicator is cheap feeling or looking at all. It resembles much of a conventional lip gloss doe-foot applicator but don't let that stump you. The fibres are extremely soft, but apply with such great accurate results. The tip isn't too big which means it manages to apply smoothly into the inner corners without getting the product around the rest of your mouth.

So onto the product itself! I picked mine up in Ibiza, a gorgeous light pink. At first it threw me off completely because I thought it was quite a bright colour on me but I absolutely adore it with a simple eye look. The pigmentation is incredible. I've heard quite a few people complain about the colour not lasting, but I find that if you blot, and apply, re-blot and apply it lasts a lot longer. I also put one of my KIKO lip liners on too which gives it a bit more structure.

I applied it once in the morning (around 9am) and re-applied post coffee, lunch and snack time around 3 o'clock. Personally for me, if I only need to re-touch once after the amount of food and drink I consume, I'm happy!

The product smells of cake. Usually I'm not a fan of intensely fragrant lip products but this is something different. I mean. Cake. yum. I do wonder if all of the products smell the same but I have my eyes on London, Milan, Antwerp and Abu Dabi. Just to name a few. I will definitely be picking more of these up! Absolutely gorgeous!
