NYX Matte Lip Creams and Primer

Hello, it's me... And I'm back, doing normal posts again, yass! I've missed this little place, but decided to take a break due to lack of motivation. Shitty excuse I know but it's true, I just wasn't feeling it. I don't want to totally stop blogging, because I love it so now I've finished uni, I've decided I want to get back into it properly.

I recently did a bit of NYX haul on ASOS. The Soft Matte Lip creams had been on my radar for a while, with reviews saying they're a dupe for the Kylie Lip Kits but for a fraction of the price, how could you resist?! I decided to try out (after a lot of Pinterest searches I might add) shades; Cairo and Cannes. Firstly, they both smell delicious, they literally smell like marshmallows and the consistency is so creamy and soft to apply. Unlike other matte lip products I've tried, they don't feel as drying. Obviously they're not the most hydrating lip creams because they are a matte effect however, they don't make your lips feel like paper (y'know what I mean). Also the packaging of these beauties are gorgeous, they have a lovely matte lid and the little love-heart is adorable.

Cannes is definitely my favourite out of the two. It's sort of a deep pink/ nude shade that I think would suit a multiple of skin tones. As for Cairo I'm still a bit unsure. It's an alright shade but one that's probably only going to work on really pale skin. I like to use a good load of bronzer so this does make me look a bit like I've got concealer lips however on my natural, pastey face it doesn't look as bad.

I also got a primer, which I really, really like. It's the studio effect Photo-Loving Primer that reminds me a lot of the Smashbox Photo-Ready primer. It's nice and light, fills in pores like a pro and helps make my foundation look flawless. Definitely a winner and one to be re-purchased!

Have you tried any of the NYX Matte Lip Creams?
