There hasn't been a new budget launch in the past couple of months that has really attracted my attention however when I went into the Body shop these caught my eye straight away. These are exactly what I expected the NYX soft matte lip creams to be. They are incredibly comfortable and feel pretty hydrating on the lips. They aren't quite completely matte, I'd describe the finish more like a velvet. Something I do really like about these is the fact that the colour of the packaging corresponds with the colour inside which makes them easier to pick out of my collection. They have a basic doe foot applicator which is a nice size, I'm not a fan of the straight applicators like in the Sleek matte me's so I was pleased to find that these have just a standard doe foot.
These do have an incredibly sweet scent so if you don't like highly scented lip products these will definitely not be for you as you can still smell them on the lips for a while after application. Lasting power wise I find I get a similar time out of each. They fade really evenly and don't go gross and flakey on the lips like a lot of liquid lips do.
Moving onto the shades the first shade I picked up was Sicily Iris which is a stunning blackened purple shade which is ideal for this time of year. I then picked up Tokyo Lotus which is a gorgeous bright pink shade which isn't something I would usually pick up however I really love it and I feel like I will get a lot of wear out of it in the summer. The final shade I picked up was Crete Carnation which I am pretty sure is my perfect nude shade. It is a really pretty pinky nude shade which doesn't wash me out but is still a nude shade.
I really hope you guys enjoyed this post! I'd love to know if you guys have tried these and what your thoughts were.
