NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream- Amsterdam

4 years back when I was home for vacation in Nepal, I was insanely excited to finally find NYX cosmetics in town! Nyx cosmetics was not launched in India back then, so the only option to get their products were either to order online from NYX cosmetic site itself or get it from abroad.

After days of hunting this product online in Nepal, I did find some Instagram pages that were selling the products, but I wasn’t sure if they were genuine. In the wake of bumping into fake/replica high-end lipsticks, annoying the online retailers to the core with my skeptical questions, at last, I found out that Nepal does have an authorized NYX distributor.  I was super excited to know that they even do free home delivery. 😀 Commuting is a pain in Kathmandu city unless you know how to ride a bike.

The delivery boy of the Nyx cosmetics Nepal was very cordial, I was also happy with their delivery speed (i placed the order in the morning and received it the same day afternoon). However, the only thing that made me upset was that the lipstick didn’t come wrapped properly. It wasn’t sealed or anything 🙁  I held the lipstick in my hand for few mins and had a mind battle whether or not is it a fresh piece. I assumed it could be a TESTER. However, I kept it considering the fuel crisis in the city.  I compared the NYX cream lip cream which I recently got from abroad with the one I bought in Kathmandu. There was no difference except the part that the one I got here was not sealed and didn’t look like a fresh piece.  The one I got from abroad were sealed and secured. So girls, don’t accept the product if the seal is open.

Talking about the lip cream, if you are someone who loves matte lipsticks yet worrying how to carry o with matte in this cold winter, then this is simply the right pick.

The product claims

Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and unlike some matte lipstick formulas also moisturizing.

What furthermore do I say as the description says it all.. Anyway let me tell you about my experience with the product.

They have a whole lot of beautiful shade available in this line but since it’s fall and winter is close I picked Amsterdam with no second thoughts 🙂
I absolutely love this shade! Amsterdam is one of that red which effortlessly makes your teeth look whiter. The applicator gives you the perfect application even without the help of a lip pencil. It is highly pigmented and glides really smooth. It has good staying power, but it does fade away after having a complete meal, so a quick touch up is needed after anything you eat. It has a smell which is close to butterscotch, however, it fades away once the lipstick turns into a matte finish.

Yes, it’s matte….However, you need to wait for few mins to see the lip cream turn into matte on your lips. If you are a huge fan of lipstick then you are absolutely  going to love this.


The packaging is pretty cool. The cap of the bottle comes in matte finished.  It is easy to carry around.
