Nyx Soft Matte Lip Crème in Cannes- Review and Swatches

Hi Friends,

Today I am going to review a much raved product from Nyx. Their very famous soft matte lip crèmes’. I have got two shades but am going to talk about the shade ‘Cannes’ today.

What Nyx speaks about the soft matte lip cremes:

It is neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color which goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. It is durable and moisturizing.

43AED from Dubai
Available online (click here)

Ingredients (from the Nyx website):
Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Dimethicone,Beeswax, Glyceryl Behenate / Eicosadioate, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethicone /Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Talc, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Silica, Aluminium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Isohexadecane,Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Parfum.

Decently pigmented and that gives a opaque coverage after just a few swipes. Cannes is peachy pink, and is a little warm toned, that would complement every Indian skin tone and could be worn as an everyday lip colour.

Staying power:
Staying power is good for me. It can goes up to 4 to 5 hours on my lips.

My Take on the product:

Nyx soft matte lip crème comes in plastic tube packaging with a regular applicator. It is thick in consistency. It spreads easily on the lips and gives a decent pigmentation with a single swipe. It glides like silk-smooth cream on the lips and tends to dry soon after the application. It sets into a matte finish look and I could easily get a full 4 to 5 hours of wear without budging or fading. It doesn’t transfer or bleed so no need to worry about it going outside the lip line. Everything seems fine other than that it gets a bit dry after some hours. To counter this, I put a lip balm before applying the matte lip cream so that my lips never feel dry.


As a whole this lip crème is very easy to apply, pretty pigmented with a nice creamy texture. Cannes is a peachy pink warm tones color that can be daily wear, so if you haven’t tried this yet, I would say do try it. Nyx soft matte lip cremes has so many color variations so go grab it!!!
