NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams & NYX Xtreme Lip Gloss Swatches (PIC HEAVY)

Do you live in the USA? If so, please enter my MAC giveaway here
Today, I swatched the NYX Matte Lip Creams ( & the 2 NYX Xtreme Lip Glosses that I reviewed here). I own 6 of them & I LOVE them.
Here's what NYX's website says:
Neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint 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. Available in 13 lip colors.
What it is: Highly pigmented, matte lip cream
What it does: Creates various matte lip looks
Why we love it: Delightfully creamy and lightweight, our award winning line just expanded with two captivating new shades.
Artist Tips/Suggested Use:
How to use: Apply directly to lips, or over lipstick. Apply with lip liner to define outline of lips.
They are $6.00 on NYX's website ($4.20 if you have the Professional Discount), they come in a tube like most lip glosses & have a doe tip applicator. 
Here are swatches of the 6 shades that I own:
(From Left to Right)
Abu Dhabi, Addis Ababa, Amsterdam, Istanbul, San Paulo & Tokyo
Abu Dhabi:
Deep Rose Beige
This is not a good color on me at all. It's very brown & washes my skin out.
Addis Ababa:
Bright Fuchsia
I love this color, it's a bright, gorgeous pink! (favorite!)
Pure Red
Can't go wrong with blue based matte red!
Here is Amsterdam swatched beside MAC's Russian Red, they are super close, Russian Red is on the left & is a little deeper than Amsterdam. 
Clean Pink
This color is so pretty, it's very close to my natural lip color with more of a pink tone.
San Paulo:
Plummy Pink
This color is much more pink and much lighter than I expected but still very pretty. 
Bubblegum Pink
I love this color in the tube, but it looks terrible on me!
Here's all of them in the tube.
I got a lot of comments asking me to swatch the Xtreme Lip Glosses that I reviewed last week, so here they are! I love both of these colors, again, you can click the link above to read my review.
Here is Candyland:
This color is so gorgeous & the perfect pink!
Nude Peach Fuzz:
Another gorgeous color! I love the glossiness of these colors!
I turned 26 on Monday, my husband & I celebrated with lots of shopping & then we went to a HUGE smogasboard (buffet) called Shady Maple. It serves PA dutch food (my favorite) things like chicken pot pie (in other places besides Amish country it's called chicken & dumplings), apple butter, red beet eggs, shoofly pie & much, much more! If it's your birthday, you get to eat free & everything tastes so amazing! I ate so much I thought I was going to explode. All in all, it was a fabulous birthday!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. These look amazing! Wish we had NYX in stores in the UK x

    1. The onjly place they sell them locally here is Ulta so I usually purchase them online.

  2. They look amazing, especially Addis Ababa

  3. I've tried the red one and a Tokyo as well. I haven't tried Tokyo but the red one faded on me really fast :( Did you have that with them too?

    1. I do have to apply them more often, they do fade fairly fast.
