#30in30 NYX Matte Cream in Antwerp

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThese lip cream products are nothing new and I think I’ve tried almost every brands version, at this point I’m 99.9% convinced they’re all an identical product with different print on the tube. The packaging (all but for the name) is exactly the same, the scent, the shade selection, all bizarrely similar.. I mean, give it up! They have to be the same product, right? That aside I thought it was still worth sharing as depending on where you are in the world different brands will be easier to get hold of, NYX is a little pricier in the UK than it is in the states so if you like the look at this I’d suggest you check out Collection’s Cream Puffs or Miners Matte Factors which will both cost just £2.99 compared to the whopping £7.00 NYX want for this one.



That being said I love every one of these matte lip creams so this is not a bad review I just wish it was cheaper as it’s really no better than it’s rivals in Boots! The colour is one of my absolute favourites too, so easy to wear and warms up my complexion perfectly without feeling too bold, great for work! It doesn’t last all day, if you’re eating/drinking you should expect to retouch and potentially wipe it off entirely to reapply to avoid a crumbly, cakey looking lip a few hours in but it’s comfortable to wear and so long as you don’t NEED an all day product it’s one I’d recommend in a heartbeat.. or at least I’d recommend you try one of the lower cost equivalents anyway 😉

Available online here (but always out of stock) and here

    Antwerp is definitely my favorite shade from this collection! I love all the soft matte lip colors. I do wish they lasted longer, but I’m glad they at least don’t dry the crap out of my lips like other matte lip products!

    These lipsticks look so nice the more I see them swatched, the more I want to get them and try them for myself! (I want every liquid lipticks from every brands, anyway, but still. Haha.) It looks good on you aswell! x
