NYX SMLC in Zurich, Cannes, Sao Paulo

One of world's most popular liquid lipstick.

You might have heard NYX, but do you know that NYX is derived from "Goddess of the night"? NYX offers an endless shades and products for experimental or professional make-up work with a relatively affordable price tag. NYX's Soft Matte Lip Cream is NYX's best selling liquid lipstick product which comes in net 8 ml, handy plastic tube and creates an opaque yet light-weight matte finish. 

Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favorite. NYX Website

Every shade has distinctive tube color to differentiate it from each other, made in China, cruelty-free, and retailed for USD 6 or around IDR 100-125.000.

I bought 3 shades for starter pack (lol), these shades are (L-R) San Paulo, Cannes and Zurich. According to NYX website, San Paulo is considered as 'Plummy Pink', whereas Cannes is described as 'Matte Muted Mauve' and Zurich as 'Matte Muted Rose'.
SMLC product is made in China, cruelty-free, has a faint scent of vanilla fragrance and comes with a slanted applicator. The lipstick comes in creamy-liquid form, dries easily within a minute and leaves a nice, light-weight matte-finish.
The pigmentation is truly opaque, covers lips surface very well and leaves stain behind. In terms of color, San Paulo as the vivid one, is a demure fuchsia that surprisingly looks versatile for my warm skin-tone. Cannes as one of the popular shade is a MLBB subtle mauve comparing to Zurich as a muted rosy color which turns out to be the lightest shade of the pack.
Here is a quick swatch comparison directly on my lips :) the color may distort from real life color but at least this is the closest color to compare.

My Verdict?
You can't go wrong with NYX SMLC; the texture, the color payoff, the finish and the lasting power is amazingly awesome. With inexpensive price tag, you can get professional quality product for daily or special occasion make-up. SMLC has the most velvety and light-weight liquid product ever made; it's not drying nor pulling out your lips like SL**K matte does, lol. The available shades also varied from subtle nudes into vivid plummy hue with addition to 12 new shades. The matte finish is fine, only takes a minute to dry-out and doesn't accentuate dry patches if you gently exfoliated your lips before. I would repurchase it again and might try different nude/mauve shade. How about you? What do you think of NYX SMLC?


  1. I absolutely love NYX lip products, especially all their matte lines. I have bunch of soft matte lip creams because I went crazy and purchased majority of them when they had a 50% off sale on the website a year or two back. I think San Paulo looks the best!


    1. Can't agree more! They have the best matte lipstick product ever have! xo
