NYX soft matte metallic lip cream in Cannes is a medium, nude pink with a matte metallic finish. This is my favorite out of the bunch! The formula is comfortable on the lips, glides on smoothly and doesn’t get patchy. The subtle metallic finish makes it wearable for any time of day. I will definitely purchase more shades. Milan and Rome are right up my alley.
NYX Powder Puff Lippie in Best Buds is a nude rose with a soft matte finish. I had fun playing around with this product. You can apply it to the center of the lips and gently press it out to the edges for a casual, undone look. It can also be applied to the entire lip for a soft out-of-focus pout. I plan on adding it to my weekly rotation.
PF The Healthy Lip in Dose of Rose is a medium rose pink with a velvet finish. The packaging is beautiful and gives it a luxe feel. Dose of Rose is an absolutely gorgeous color that applies easily. The pointed applicator aids in seamless application, especially around the cupids bow. I will say that I was a bit disappointed in how this product made my lips feel. It has a ton of lip loving ingredients, but still made my lips feel slightly dry. With that said, I still think it is a solid lip product for $7.95 and would recommend it to friends.
PF The Healthy Lip in Coral Minerals is a medium pinkish coral with a velvet finish. Again, this product looks and feels like it should cost more. This color did not give me the same dry feeling as Dose of Rose. It was easy to apply and extremely comfortable on the lips. I can see myself wearing this color for many months to come.
Wet-N-Wild Pout and Love Gel Lip Balm in Love is a sheer pink with a glossy finish. Wow, I am in love with this lip balm! The formula and texture reminds me of NYX Butter lipstick, just with less color saturation. Although, I was pleasantly surprised by how much color it deposited on my lips. My lips felt moisturized without the slightest hint of stickiness. I’m sure this will become my go-to for work or on my no makeup days.
