From Nyx Website:
Neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing. Available in 13 lip colors.

Out of the 13 lip colors, I got 6.  The other shades are dark from what I normally wear.  Just maybe if my itch strike, I'll get 'em all.

nyx soft matte lip cream in addis ababa

 bright magenta shade.  bright pink - semi dark effect on my lips but wearable even for day look. this became a permanent fixture on my makeup kit.  I'd suggest this to be the first pick when buying a soft matte lip cream.

nyx soft matte lip cream in tokyo 

milky baby pink shade..not nude!  this may look better on cool complexion gals. I need to layer this to get an even color instead of swiping once. I need to moisturize my lips a lot if I want to wear this as it enhances lines and flakes.  I'll try to make this work but on my warm colored skin, its just a no.

nyx soft matte lip cream in istanbul 

a nude pink MLBB shade. this is just like my lip color with a hint of pink (or just like making my lips even in color).

nyx soft matte lip cream in milan

soft cool pink shade with an oomph. I want this color to be my natural lip shade *wish. this and addis ababa are my first two picks.  mom loves this shade also that I need to get another one as she took mine.  :(

a bright coral shade..not nude! I first thought it's a nude peach coral color from browsing google images but no. its still pretty though..a bright coral shade. (please refer to the hand swatches pic to get an idea of the actual color)

 nude pinky peach shade. again another MLBB shade. this on me is like istanbul but with hints of peach/brown. this is a really pretty nude shade that just gives the right amount of color..doesn't give a sick looking effect. lol.

The soft matte lip creams are one of my fave nyx products. They are really a treat to apply -- creamy/buttery upon application. They are not as opaque as lipstick products, but that's what's good about them...more wearable and with just layering will give the wanted coverage. The darker shades are more pigmented. I wouldn't suggest the lighter colors (tokyo,etc) for pigmented lips. Again lips should be moisturized if you want to wear the lighter shades.  Though some shades may accentuate lines and flaking, the colors are really pretty that the minor flaws are insignificant.

Downside? Dry lips - a big NO NO!  Lazy ol' me keeps forgetting the lip balm (on a regular basis) so after wearing soft matte almost everyday, I find it dry on the lips - look and wear (Still pretty though!). But keep in mind matte lippies are really like that. 

I really suggest to try this product but if matte is a problem, nyx xtreme lip creme is a good option though they have limited shades. I'll be posting about it soon. :)

I got mine from:
