NYX Lip Creams are ruling my mind at the moment and despite my NYX Lip Creams and Lipsticks haul from US, am eagerly waiting to get my hands on some more NYX products tomorrow. Yes!! NYX is finally in India and their collection is available on Nykaa.
Coming back, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm is the one that I won on twitter giveaway hosted my NYX Cosmetics India. I was one of the lucky 10 who was sent a product from them.
NYX Lip Cream Stockholm + ColorBar Lip Pencil Chocolate Brown
At first impression, NYX Lip Cream in Stockholm is a pretty natural color – a quite light pink. As is, this color kind of washed me off and looks paleBut if you have pigmented lips like mine, it’s a color that washes you off completely. However using a primer and/or lip pencil to use as base color helps a lot!
As for me, I used ColorBar Chocolate Brown which is a rich chocolate-y brown shade as base color. Since it’s intense, creamy and pretty forgiving on my chapped lips, it worked well with the NYX Lip Cream. These together didn’t accentuate the fine lines and/or settle in them which makes this combination as one of my favorites ever.
Here’s how it looks –
I chose ColorBar Lip Pencil in Chocolate Brown as the base color as I wanted to have a darker shade than the original Stockholm shade. And since the summer has almost passed and monsoon and colder months are ahead, this shade in combination would be simply fabulous.
However, if you are more into *barely there* and *natural pink* then NYX Lip Cream in Stockholm as is just made for you!
Overall, am totally obsessed with this NYX Lip Cream as I love how gorgeous it looks when paired with a dark brown pencil. And the formula itself is pretty long lasting and flawless. This non-drying and creamy formula is far better than other liquid lipsticks available at the moment.
