Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!
Another makeup review, this time is something I bought from Sephora. It's actually funny when I went to Sephora, I was with my friend going there and somehow the security guard for the shop actually stared at us while we were strolling and checking the makeup there, I guess they thought we're just some random strollers that would steal stuffs =/
Although I can find NYX in Brunei, but I just am intimidated to go to Shop@Sarah, I'm not sure why, but that's just how I feel. At least, Sephora has a more friendlier feel to it. Anyways, I've tried the Soft Matte Lip Cream before and I really love it, since the Xtreme Lip Cream is basically a more intense and glossy version of the Soft Matte Lip Creams, I guess it wasn't so bad to try.
I just bought one from the range since I don't really have any urges to try, I just bought it for the sake of the fact that the security is hovering behind us. LOL! This was for RM26, so it was about B$10-11, cheaper than in Brunei, I think.
I really love the color pay-off for this color, it is very RED, it reminds me of the red that always associated with Marilyn Monroe's lips, I think. It really brightens up my look and I don't really care using it with a heave eye makeup look or a light one, it is still suitable for both looks. I like to use it when I wear my glasses out because I think the black frame actually suits the strong red color.
In terms of longevity, I think it would stay on all day long if you don't eat or drink, the intensity will fade if you do, but it does give you a slightly faded stain after that, but I just don't think I'll buy more shades because of the longevity, it actually transfers to any surface your lip might touch. It doesn't seem to set. So I usually ended up topping this lip cream with a gloss to prolong the wear.
