by - December 15, 2016

Hello my pretties,
How are you all? I am very much excited to share today’s review on one of the most raved Brand on beauty world that i.e NYX .....oh yes..it is!!! And I am going share my thoughts on their so famous lip creams in shades “Cannes” and “Stockholm”. I think, NYX lip creams need no introduction but for the one who has just entered to the world of makeup and cosmetics , NYX is a USA based brand which offers a tons of professional makeup products. NYX launched in Indian though Nykaa first, and then opened a few exclusive brand stores in only some places in India. Their lip creams are quite famous around the world among many beauty and makeup lovers. So it is a dream come true to get my hands on these two beauties. So without any further delay let’s jump into the review of NYX matte lip creams in "Cannes" and "Stockholm".

My review on NYX soft matte lip creams in shade Stockholm and Cannes:

Packaging: They come in a transparent cylindrical tube with matte black screw open cap. The cap has a doe foot applicator attached inside. Shade number and name mention at the bottom and the tube carries all the information related to it.

: It is a perfect MLBB ( My Lips But Better)shade for me, but I think dusky tone beauties may find it washes them out. The color is a peachy nude, perfect hue for everyday wear to office/work.

Cannes: It is an excellent earthy pink nude; I think dusky skin tone beauties may find it the perfect MLBB shade for them as the shade is on the deeper side. I also enjoy it wearing everyday as well as for night out. The shade looks stunning on both Indian as well as western outfit.
Pigmentation and Texture: Decently pigmented, two swipes are enough for full and opaque coverage.  Both the shades cover up my pigmented lips so well. Texture is so soft and creamy that glides like a dream. They spread evenly without tugging and pulling.

Formula and Finish: The formula is very light-weight and mousse-y and smells like yummy vanilla cupcakes. So these are creamy when applied on lips but after a few seconds or so they settle down complete matte finish but comfortable to carry. These lip creams do not settle down to dry patches for its creamy formula.

Staying power and Color payoff: They last up to more than 7 hours on me with a little fading on the center. They do not survive the full meal yet. They both provide a good color payoff, so after 7 hours they stain the lips quite well.


  • Perfect nude hue to wear.
  • MLBB shades for Indian skin tones.
  • Decently pigmented.
  • Full color payoff in two swipes.
  • Give opaque coverage on lips.
  • Comfortable matte.
  • Creamy mousse-y texture.
  • Buttery formula glides like a dream.
  • Light weight.
  • Long lasting.
  • Travel friendly packaging.


  • Pricey. That’s all. 

Rating: 4.8/5.

Final verdicts: The price does matter but when it comes to a well-known USA based professional makeup brand…..this quite worth the money. In USA these are cheaper in price but if you want to ship them directly from USA, you have to pay shipping and custom charges which are huge. So I think on that point the price is quite fair enough. So I would highly recommended these lip creams to give a damn try…..trust me these worth it.
