NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, Copenhagen : Review

Written by: Smriti on:

Remember how I had shared my love for the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams a while ago? Well, I have the last shade of the trio that adorns my vanity to share with you today, one which I consider a real gem.

Let's take a look at Copenhagen!

I'll confess I still do not have the courage to sport a red lip when stepping out, so this tube has seen more love from my mother, but for all the boss ladies out there, Copenhagen is made for you!

Convenient to carry, long lasting colour, and easy reapplicability (if needed) makes it an ideal pick for anyone aiming to make a statement on the go.

Rich pigment meets a dream-like mousse texture in this tube of goodness. The short wand ends in a classic doe foot applicator which picks up sufficient product to provide a tint to both lips or full colour to one.

The product spreads easily on the lips and is buildable. Personally, I find layering to work best with this colour if I'm going for a true opaque matte red as it prevents streaking. The feel is comfortable, and as a lover of matte lipstick, I'm grateful that I need not sacrifice the hydration of my lips in order to wear the Soft Matte Lip Creams.

As for the colour, Copenhagen is a rich dark plum-red on me, but sheered out, looks redder. It's glamour packed in a tube, and can elevate any look, make any outfit look wow!

Copenhagen suits all skin tones fairly well, makes teeth look whiter, and the lips wine-stained. I love to apply it over a light lip balm to give a slightly gel-like transparency to it. It's the only way I've worn it yet, but you never know! I may just channel my inner diva one day and wear it truly, and you might get to see an interesting Insta Stories that day 😀

And on with the swatches!

Come fall in love with this shade, as I have ❤
