NYX soft matte lip cream Monte Carlo Review
I had this shade in my bucket list for soooo long and luckily it was available on Sephora. SA told me that this was the only piece left… yay yayyyy. I felt like doing the Happy Dance there..hehe and grabbed it without wasting anytime. These lip creams are high in demand at Sephora Delhi and feel yourself lucky if you got the chance to get hold of these.
These are neither lip gloss nor lipsticks. These lip colors are one of a kind and you will feel them silky smooth on your lips. Today i am reviewing the shade Monte Carlo which is a berry tone red shade and would suit all skin tones.
MRP: Rs. 570 for 8ml
My Experience: I can’t say i am drooling over it, it is a nice shade but due to its matte nature it dries my lips immensely. It sits nicely on the lips but after 2-3 hours i felt dryness and it accentuates the fine lines.
Nice color, you will fall in love with the color.
The applicator provides a precise finish and is very easy to use.
Smooth texture, it feels very light on lips
Highly Pigmented, one swipe covers the lip perfectly.
Long wearing, provides 6-7 hours of wear time.
Survives the meals and snacks, you may need little touch up around the corner and middle of the lips.
Gives a nice glow to the face.
Not an ideal formula and texture for the dry lips. You need to exfoliate your lips and moisturize them before the application.
Accentuate the lip lines.
Difficult to remove and leaves a stain behind.
Availability is an issue, either you can order online or buy from Sephora.
My Rating: 4/5. One mark deducted for accentuating the fine lines and making the lips dry.
