Two Nudes You Need In Your Life

Wednesday, 10 August 2016


I've fallen in love with nude lipsticks lately, I never thought they'd suit me because of pale complexion but these two just nail it...

Okay...I had never tried the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams until lately (I know). But now I have I don't think theres any turning back. The first shade I picked up was Cannes. I'd describe this as a pinky/brown shade, more so pink than brown. Its actually quite hard to explain but you just need to go swatch it for yourself to see its beauty haha. The matte lip creams aren't at all drying and are the most comfortable matte formula to have ever touched my lips!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Zurich | £5.50
The second shade I picked up was Zurich. In the photo (and real life) this and Cannes look practically identical. However when they're on the lips they're totally different. This is much lighter when applied and is definitely more pink than anything else. Zurich doesn't have any brown undertones but is a lovely neutral nude pink. If you prefer a more natural lip I'd definitely choose this one over Cannes. I still think Cannes is my favourite of the bunch but this is very pretty if you're going for a natural makeup look.

What are your favourite soft matte lip cream shades?

  1. I have Cannes and it's just lovely! I also have Koko K from Kylie Cosmetics (cliche i know :P) and wanted a slightly darker shade. It's just lovely, although slightly 'richer' in colour than i expected! I also got a lip liner, which i desperately tried to match at the counter but didn't quite succeed... the liner is about 2 shades darker and looks a tad ridiculous :P At least it was cheaper than other brands though! Nyx is definitely one i will go back to for more shades :) I want to try "Copenhagen" too!
