My spring lippy: NYX’s Stockholm

NYX Soft Matte Cream Lip Stockholm

The hype around the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream has been around for a while, so I am joining the party fashionably late. I blame NYX themselves, as it is still pretty hard to get the brand in stores here. Online access is lovely, but sometimes you just need to go crazy at a physical counter.

Having tried my first Soft Matte Lip Cream in the amazing burgundy Copenhagen (right here if you are curious), I was looking to expend. I finally decided to stick with the Scandinavian theme and picked up Stockholm.

Describing the color is a little tricky. NYX go for the rather boring mid-tone beige pink, though I personally feel it is a little more dusky peach. Whatever you call this, I absolutely love it. It is very tricky for me to find nudes with more orange and peach tones that look good on me, but this just works. I have been rocking it a lot lately and I feel this will be the lippy that defines spring 2016 for me.

This lovely liquid lipstick dries into a matte finish, but doesn’t have any of the nasty dehydrating side-effects you usually find in budget matte formulas. In fact, this just feels very light on the lips. It will stay on for about three to four hours and will fade evenly. The packaging is sleek and convenient and this is even cruelty free!

Another hit from NYX that has me curious about the rest of the range. Any tips on what I should try next? Just wish they would open a proper counter near me soon, I have been drooling over some Instagram pics from UK Boots stores with massive counters.

NYX Soft Matte Cream Lip StockholmDe hype rond de Soft Matte Lip Creams van NYX is al een tijdje in volle gang, dus ik ben ‘fashionably late’ maar heel enthousiast. Dat is helemaal de schuld van NYX zelf, want het is best lastig om het merk hier te vinden. Online kun je alles krijgen, maar soms wil je gewoon alle producten zien op een display.

Nadat ik mijn eerste Soft Matte Lip Cream in de mooie bordeauxrode Copenhagen had geprobeerd (hier als je benieuwd bent), wilde ik graag nog een kleurtje testen. Ik besloot uiteindelijk in het Scandinavische thema te blijven en koos voor Stockholm.

Deze kleur is best lastig te beschrijven. NYX gaat voor het saaie mid-tone beige roze, maar ik vind het zelf meer perzikachtig. Hoe je dit ook noemt, ik vind het geweldig. Het is lastig om nudes met een oranje ondertoon die me goed staan, maar deze werkt heel goed bij mijn teint. Ik draag hem de laatste tijd veel en heb het vermoeden dat dit echt de lipstick van lente 2016 gaat worden.

Deze fijne vloeibare lippenstift droogt matte op, maar heeft niet de nare uitdrogende werking die je meestal vind in goedkope matte formules. De Soft Matte Lip Cream voelt juist heel licht op de lippen. Het blijft ongeveer drie tot vier uur mooi zitten en vervaagt op een egale manier. De verpakking is chic, handig, en zelfs diervriendelijk!

Nog een hit van NYX, nu ben ik erg benieuwd naar de rest van de collectie. Welk product zal ik nu proberen? Ik hoop gewoon dat er snel een mooie grote display opengaat bij mij in de buurt.

      Oh yes. I am glad I listened to all those bloggers, because I probably wouldn’t have picked it up in store myself. xx

    Great post! I was the same as you and bought just the one matte lip cream and end up wishing I bought more!! I did end up buying some bright eyeliners (purple) and their contour stick. It’s amazing! xx

    That is such a pretty shade which suits you incredibly well. I know, even my eyes drool around the Nyx counter whenever I visit to Boots. I do believe it is such a great cruelty free brand to try. Have an awesome weekend Anne.

    Such a lovely colour. I have Cannes which is much lighter on the lips to what it appears in the tube xxx

      Oh Cannes looks so lovely online. Definitely on my wishlist. Copenhagen is also a little lighter on the lips, maybe all the darker shades in the range do that. xx

    I order two of these last week and I cannot wait to receive them. I found it difficult to choose from the great selection, this one was in mylist first but decided to order Prague and Cannes and if I like them (I know I will love them) I will order more! This one looks lovely on you!

      Very nice choices! Cannes is definitely on my wish list, it looks so lovely. Can’t wait to see them pop up on your blog. xx

      Oh I agree I never would have picked it in store either. I spotted this online on someones lips and ordered it, but when it arrived I looked at the tube and went ‘oh brown’. But it turns out lovely on the lips.
