If you have an obsession with lipstick, consider yourself warned, this post is going to make you want 36 more!
I have always been a HUGE fan of NYX's Soft Matte Lip Creams, and I tell pretty much anyone who will listen how great they are. So I was over the moon to get this NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault for Christmas!! Well, full disclosure, I bought it myself and had my brother give it to me for Christmas, but hey, that made it guilt-free shopping!
While they are in mini-size, it's the perfect set to test and try all these amazing shades and decide which ones are truly your favourite. There were quite a few Soft Matte Lip Cream shades that I had been dying to try, but didn't want to splurge on a bunch individually, so this is perfect! The last couple of weeks since Christmas, I've been testing out a different colour here and there, to see which shades were the best on me.
I first tried Prague, which I had been dying to try for months now, and let me tell you, this colour does not disappoint. It's the perfect berry shade, something I've been searching the beauty aisles for quite a while for. I think this is officially my favourite shade out of the whole Vault! Runner up has to be Cannes, which is a nice every day neutral shade with a tinge of pink. It's a "your lips but better" kind of shade, in my opinion. Especially if you're on the pale side. Other favourites not shown here were Transylvania (super dark and gorgeous), and London (an excellent nude shade). I like that they included some intense colours like Moscow (a very dark blue), Havana (a bright purple), and Morocco (orange) for those times you feel like taking a beauty risk!
If the range of colours wasn't enough, the formulas of these are great, if you haven't tried their Soft Matte Lip Creams before. They're a long-lasting matte lipstick that smells great and doesn't dry out my lips too bad. Sadly, when I took these photos, my lips were super dry even without lipstick (ahhh winter...), but usually my lips feel great with these Lip Creams on.
Want to give them a try? I picked up mine at London Drugs, although I don't see them available online anymore. You can also find them on NYX Cosmetics' website, or you can find the full-size NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams at any London Drugs store!
