NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo

I was looking high and low for Paul Mitchell’s Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shampoo and Conditioner, and one of my unsuccessful stops was Ulta, but I had a coupon, so I picked up this Soft Matte Lip Cream.

Guys… Guys I love it. Sorry for the PDA in the first photo but I can’t help it. I feel so amazing in it. It’s a great color, kind of a muted red with a little splash of pink in there. I did have to reapply a few times during the day (Mac Prep + Prime, we are going to do a post on your fickleness later), but I didn’t care. It didn’t bleed and the pigment payoff was awesome. Totally opaque with a very chic matte finish.

Since it’s matte it did dry my lips out a tiny bit, but considering how dry my lips usually are, this is a big improvement on other matte lip colors I’ve worn.

When I got home from work today it was really cloudy out so I didn’t have ideal light, but the color is surprisingly accurate. The third picture is closer, but I figured I should show a smile every now and then (cause I love my beauty juice and blogging about it).

Now I’m going to watch the most recent Mad Men and peruse the internet using my kitty cat as an elbow rest. She loves it.
