My friends tell me that I’m a makeup geek. There’s nothing I love more than putting on makeup and creating a flawless look.

There are few things that I love more than matte liquid lipsticks. I own so many that I can open my own store but who would buy my used products?

After trying dozens of different matte liquid lipsticks I find these best.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

If you are willing to sacrifice some of the long wear time and matte finish of liquid matte lipstick for a product that is very comfortable to wear, then look no further.

It feels soft, give gorgeous opaque color to the lips without emphasizing the lines and fades naturally without looking patchy. A suitable product for aging or dry lips!

It takes a few minutes for the product to get dry and then for further pigmentation apply a second layer.

These lip creams smell like vanilla cupcakes but once you apply the smell dissipates.
