NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Stockholm Review
NYX Soft Matte Creams have been a hit with many beauty bloggers and gurus. The matte look is quite "in" right now and this color is super matte and reminds me a bit of the 90's.
Here's a swatch of NYX Soft Matte Cream in Stockholm on the inside of my arm taken in natural daylight.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm is a bit hard for me to describe. I've seen others describe it as a "peachy nude" but on my skin tone I feel like it has way too much color in order to be described as nude. I think of a nude lip as much lighter and less brown like MAC Creme D'Nude or MAC Freckletone. It actually has a bit of rosey or even reddish tone. It's actually quite dark in the package and looks like it almost has a brown tone to it.
It's definitely a warmer color and you don't have to worry about looking washed out with this color as can be an issue with many nude lippies. Since it is a warmer color I like to pair it with a warm eye shadow look and warmer blush.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Stockholm has a super matte formula. It applies easily but dries down after a minute. Despite being matte it doesn't feel overly dry on the skin. Its not marketed as a super long-wear formula but I would say the wear is pretty decent. If you are used to wearing glosses or lip sticks with lots of slip, this will take a while to get used to.

Supposedly NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is a dead ringer for Kylie Jenner's Candy K lip kit at a much more affordable price.
NYX Soft Matte Cream is an excellent value. It's a drugstore product and super affordable. The only problem is that it may be hard to find since it was sold out just about every where when I was looking for it. Luckily you can get it easily on Amazon.
