Here’s the NYX San Juan Soft Matte Lip Cream. I love wearing orange lipsticks in summer and I’m currently on the hunt for the perfect orange lipstick with the perfect orange shade, pigmentation, lasting power and moisture.
Although I like orange lipstick, I don’t like my orange lipstick to be very bright and this NYX San Juan shade really does satisfy my shade expectations. My problem with this lipstick is that I don’t like its consistency. It’s quite difficult to get a smooth and even coverage with this, and as you can see in the photo, it’s settling in my lip lines.
The texture of these NYX soft matte lip creams is actually really nice. It’s like they are something in between a liquid lipstick and a bullet lipstick. Even though they are a liquid formula, on the lips they feel like a matte lipstick applied from a bullet. They don’t feel very matte, powdery and extremely drying. They’re not moisturising either.
As for longevity, this does stay on until I wipe it off and it doesn’t leave a lot of transfer onto my glass when I drink. I also really like that it’s easy to wipe off.
All in all, although I love the shade texture and longevity, I’m still on the hunt for an orange lipstick that applies more evenly and maybe moisturises my lips a bit more.
If you have any suggestions, please do let me know!
