NYX Soft Matte Lip Cremes are a matte liquid lipstick. I've never used anything quite like them.
They come in what looks like a short lip gloss tube with a sponge applicator and apply with a consistency similar to a thick mousse. They are opaque and dry to a thin, sticky finish that's matte and quite drying.
Pretty colors, but my lips can't handle the dehydration. Putting balm on first helps some, but not enough for me. Topping with hydrating gloss helps too, but that defeats the purpose of having a matte lipstick.
This is the first NYX product I've tried that I couldn't wholeheartedly recommend. Fortunately, it's quite inexpensive at $6 on the NYX website. I got mine in a HauteLook flash sale for less.
