B's thoughts: NYX - Soft Matte Lip Creams

I have been going crazy for matte lipsticks, and I saw that NYX launched the Soft Matte Lipstick Creams and I knew I had to buy them.

It was the first time I was purchasing NYX products, and honestly I was a bit nervous, I have seen both good and bad reviews, so I didn't know what to expect. And I can say that I love these products. They apply very creamy and when you first apply to the lip it has a semi-matte finish but after few minutes it goes completely matte, it wears off nicely although I did find they were a lot more drying then my others matte lipsticks, with that being said, I find that need to apply a lip balm after a couple of hours off wearing it. 
The only one I don't really like is Tokyo, I find that it is very streaky.

Overall I really do like them,  but the swatches on the NYX website are not great, so be aware! My favourite colour is Milan. (priced at £5 each)
