NYX Toulouse Soft Matte Lip Cream Review Swatches Photos

I thought of trying out NYX Toulouse Soft Matte Lip Cream since it looked quite appealing and I’ll share with you with I feel about it.NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Toulouse Review Swatches Photos

Product description:

Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, NYX Professional’s velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Designed to be worn with the NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner, each lightweight hue is surprisingly durable and delightfully creamy.

Enriched with skin smoothing silicones, these lippies keep your pout looking and feeling soft with a creamy whipped texture. It’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a fan favorite.

Packaging –NYX Toulouse Soft Matte Lip Cream comes in a plastic tube that is colour coded according to the shade of the lipstick. Honestly, I like such packaging since it makes my life so easier when I have to choose the shade, I want to wear that day.

It comes with a doe foot applicator that makes the application of the lip cream so easy and I can reach all the contours of lips easily. The lip cream also has the name and number of the shade mentioned so it again becomes quite easy to sort out.NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Toulouse Review Swatches Photos

Formula and texture – The lip cream, as the name suggests, has a lightweight and creamy formula that doesn’t feel heavy or cakey on the lips. Though the formula is creamy, it dries settles down matte without drying out my lips. Whenever I wear these lip creams, it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing something on my lips. 

Swatches –NYX Toulouse Soft Matte Lip Cream is a cool toned greyish mauve with a hint of pink and is such a unique shade.  I feel it would flatter on fair to medium skin tones. The shade is almost opaque and applies beautifully in just one swipe. The applicator makes it possible to have a control over the application as well to give the complete colour payoff. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Toulouse Review Swatches Photos

Longevity – The lip cream takes about half a minute to settle and dry down completely on my lips, but most of the liquid lipsticks take time so that’s not of a concern. It stays on my lips for good 5+ hours without consuming any food or drinks.

If I consume any eatables, it starts to fade from the centre a bit. Also, it doesn’t transfer much, which is what I look out for in a lipstick. 

My overall thoughts:

I have always the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams since they have so many shades to choose from. It comes in 27 different shades with different undertones and every colour you can think of. Talking about this shade Toulouse, it is such a statement making shade but is quite risky to carry off.

If you are looking for a unique shade to have in your vanity and feel you can carry it well, you can totally go for it. I like the shade and will wear it during special occasions. But for the everyday wear, I have other shades from the range that I keep reaching out for when I feel like wearing them. 

Price –NYX Toulouse Soft Matte Lip Cream costs ₹650 for 8 ml which is quite affordable. Since it doesn’t require layering and gives opaque finish I just one swipe, it is required in a lesser quantity.

    Great review Shalini!

    I’ve tried one of the Soft Matte lip creams before 3 or 4 years ago, and I completely forgot how much I love the formula! I haven’t tried the Toulouse shade though – it looks so nice! Love the swatches 🙂 I’m definitely going to add this one to my basket. Thanks so much for recommending 🙂
