Hi there, my darlings! As a beauty blogger, I spend a LOT of my time testing out new stuff. Sometimes, even when you're testing products from a brand that you love, you can be left disappointed. Case in point, my recent foundation fail post. But, every once in awhile, you get the chance to test something that you not only like but that you instantaneously fall in love with and would ABSOLUTELY purchase over and over again. Today's post is all about that kinda love at first sight...or rather, at first swipe! I'm talking about the absolutely fabulous new Soft Matte Metallic Lip Creams from NYX Cosmetics!


Now available in 12 statement-making metallics, our new Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream shades deliver a burst of pearly color and set to a stunning matte finish. These little beauties are just as lightweight, delightfully creamy and sweetly scented as all the shades you know and love!

12 NEW shades:

  • BUDAPEST: Brick with pearl
  • CANNES: Medium nude pink 
  • COPENHAGEN: Deep berry with blue pearl
  • DUBAI: Brown with copper pearl
  • HAVANA: Blue toned purple pearl
  • MADRID: Wine red pearl
  • MANILA: Peach pearl with pink undertone 
  • MILAN: Soft pink pearl with blue undertone
  • MONTE CARLO: Red with pink undertone
  • : Hot Pink with blue pearl
  • ROME: Rosy brown with gold pearl
  • SEOUL: Berry pearl

Oof, I am so in love with these! There's just no ifs, ands or buts about it! While several of my fellow beauty lovers geek out over nudes and neutrals, I always long for bold, bright, stand out shades. And boy! Do these deliver!

I made the mistake of approaching these with a nail bloggers scepticism regarding metallics-- everyone knows metallics can notoriously be a pain in the butt to work with. But these metallics blew my misconceptions out of the water! Very happily so! Incredibly pigmented but just ONE swipe, I was so impressed with the intensity of these shades! All but Seoul, which was a tad patchy, was an absolute dream to work with and stayed PUT. In fact, I need several kinds of makeup remover to get these swatches off. As for a favorite shade, uhhhhh...don't make me pick! I truly love them alllll, even down to the pinks which I usually shy away from. Goes to show, a little metallic goes a long way to winning my heart!

Now before I continue to wax eloquent all night over these babies, please go try a couple for yourself! You can thank me later! =)
