Today I Like ... NYX Matte Lip Cream

I have a new true love, and it's an inexpensive drugstore make-up brand! I have spent no less than 4 years sampling the variety of matte lip products on the market. I've had some hits (especially with NARS products), but I've had plenty of misses, too. All I've been trying to do this whole time is get that soft pop of color you see on all the fresh-faced J.Crew models. I read a recommendation of this brand, which I frankly have never paid attention to in my local Target or CVS, and thought I'd give it a shot.

Within days, I owned not one, not two, but FOUR shades of the soft matte lip cream, a wonder product that has the consistency of mousse, vivid color with amazing depth and doesn't actually make my lips dryer than Death Valley. Just to give you a sense, I played model and snapped some pics...please note, this was AFTER a long work day.

This is the bright pink, Addis Ababa

A perfect petal pink, Milan

A bright, orange red, Amsterdam

And finally, a rich, pinker red called San Paulo

So now I basically have a shade to go with every outfit. It's a sickness, this lip cream addiction!

This probably makes me sound like a complete weirdo, but once my eyebrows grow back in, I'm totally showing my (new) waxer this blog post. Your brows look amazing!
