katsnks I love the color selection and its long lasting. But I find it to drying and when I apply balm the lip cream gets clumpy.

randi I initially received this as part of a myGlam bag in Tokyo. I loved the soft looking finish, but the color was too babydoll pink for my winter skin (I have a slightly olive complexion... so when I'm tan I'm TAN, but when I'm pale I just look yellowish). I think when summer and spring hits that that color will look beautiful.



I went in and bought Stockholm today and it is BEAUTIFUL. It's the color of my natural lip, intensified. You really should put it over lip balm, but the finish is so soft and natural! I bought it along with the new Too Faced face palette, and the Stockholm color could not be a better match for it!



It would look great with a natural make-up look, but it's also a perfect companion to a smokey eye!

Sarah I was a little bit disappointed with this product, but not by much. I think I was expecting too much from it after reading a stellar review of it in Lucky magazine a few months ago. The formula is really creamy, but you really have to make sure it goes on evenly. It definitely isn't swipe and go like a lip gloss. You really have to look at what you're doing. It lasted for a solid 3 or 4 hours before I went in for a touch up, but it is a bit drying. If you apply a layer of vaseline or chapstick first that helps a whole lot. This also makes it go on a lot more evenly.



I bought this is 2 colors, Addis Ababa and Istanbul. I LOVE Addis Ababa. It is a super bright pinky-fuschia that is just happy and fun. It is kind of 80's-ish, but in a good way. Istanbul, however, was hideous. I was expecting a bright bubblegum pink, but it was a flat rose with yellowish undertones. It looked like I caked old concealer on my lips, and it made my teeth look really yellow. Overall, it is a good product, just be careful on your color choice.

Brittany I own this product in Istanbul, Stockholm, and Antwerp. To be straight forward, I love this product but you DO have to apply lip balm or vaseline before applying. Trust me, I am the queen of chapped/dry lips, and I just put vaseline on before this and it's fine seriously all day.

Like any matte lip product, you HAVE to moisturize your lips in some way before application. This one's no different.

I really love these because they look really matte but it doesn't feel like that gross matte feeling that some lipsticks give you. my lips still feel moisturized and the color stays on literally all day for me. Love this stuff.

Sari I have this in Amsterdam, a great true red, and London, a yellow-based nude. Both are very easy to apply with the doe foot applicator, although Amsterdam, because it's darker, has a tendency to emphasize lip lines if your lips aren't moisturized and in good condition before you apply the product. This isn't drying, but it won't lock in moisture, either. Overall, I think this is a great alternative to lipstick; you get a precise application, a really interesting satin finish (nearly matte!), and the selection of colors seems to be great.

Lacey This lipstick is awesome. First of all, it smells like cupcake frosting when first applied, then the smell & taste goes away almost immediately. It does not apply like lip gloss or even lipstick but more like wet paint & is extremely pigmented. You also have to do some forethought before you wear this lipstick & exfoliate your lips really well as every single little clump on your lips will show up. The one thing that could be improved on this is that it does flake after a few hours & I have to wipe that off & reapply BUT the color would stay all day! I bought it in Antwerp & love the rich pink color. It instantly adds dimension when I am running out the door & only added simple mascara to my eyes & foundation & bronzer to my face.

makeup_addict I heard about NYX from a fashion magazine and decided to try it. I'm so happy I did! I think NYX is comparable to MAC but way less the price.



My first NYX product is this matte lip cream. I bought it in Tokyo and Addis Ababa. Addis Ababa is a bright pink color that is perfect for going out. Tokyo is a little more toned down and can be worn at work. I find Tokyo a bit too light on my lips though so I normally mix it with Addis Ababa. I have medium skin, black hair and brown eyes. Tokyo might look better on someone with lighter skin. These matte lip creams are true to color and can be quite thick. A little goes a long way. The only downside is it's quite hard to take off. If you want lip color that is matte and stays put for a long time, this is it!

veronica I LOVE this product. I've been looking for something like this for a really long time. I just purchased this in the shade "Antwerp" and absolutely LOVE it. It is such a pretty color and it is SO pigmented. I would have given it the full 5 stars but it only lasts about an hour or so. i always have to exfoliate with a lip scrub and apply a primer before to solve that problem though. I also apply a clear gloss or a chapstick (if i want to keep it matte) after so my lips dont dry out (which it tends to do because it is a matte product). other than that i love the color payoff and the price :)

N.N.Belle I ordered this lip color in Antwerp, which appears to be a soft pink in the preview, but when I actually recieved this lip color it really is more of an orange-y color. Still pretty, and long lasting. Next time I will buy in store to assure I am getting the color I want.
