NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm

The NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm are priced at $6.00 on their website. And $5.99 at ULTA (Where sometimes you can snag Buy 1 get 1 at 50% off. Or just use the $3.50 off a purchase coupon.) So these guys are quite budget friendly!

First off, I would like to clarify these are NOT liquid lipsticks.

These are a “soft matte cream”, which feel velvety smooth when applying to the lips. When they dry, there is a little bit of a tacky feeling at first but I find that goes away. Overall, they transfer a little, but mainly just on cups. Certain colors I have found are more opaque then others. Stockholm does pretty well with one coat alone, but I tend to do a second one to touch up certain areas. Also, the wear time is pretty great. Without drinking or eating, you can get a few hours out of these. I find this to be the perfect nude shade for all skin tones.

At first I totally though this was pink.. ^_^ But I now realize this is more of a coral shade. Which I never thought I would like, but I LOVE!! I topped it off with a clear gloss for a little shine.
