It's so good to see more and more beauty brands are launching some amazing holiday kits this year. NYX Cosmetics launched two lip kits Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault and Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Vault that got me heart eye emoji-ed like crazy! I went for the Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault as it seems to have more neutral colours that I would like, and I've previously tried quite a few shades of their Soft Matte Lip Cream and I really do like the formula and everything.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault has 36 mini Soft Matte Lip Cream. The 4.7ml minis are more than half size of the full-size 8ml ones, and $104 NZD divided by 36 is only $2.88 each!! (full-size is $14.95 each, so the total value of this lip kit is $316!) Even just looking at the value, you don't need any more excuse to get it, and not to mention you get to collection all the shades, I think all the beauty junkies like myself wouldn't be tough-minded enough to say no to it...
I re-arranged all 36 shades and divided them into below 3 colour categories and swatched all the colour for you guys.
Overall, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is in a way similar to Jeffree Star liquid lipstick's texture, and totally different to Kylie Lip Kits or ColourPop. They are more smooth, do look matte on the lips but aren't as dry finish as ColourPop or Kylie. Most of the shades are very pigmented and smooth to apply, although there are a few really light shades, really neon shades and the colourful darks are a little bit more patchy than the others.
My favourite shades out of all of them are:
If you haven't tired any of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, this Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault is a great chance to try and get your $$$ worth. Or if you're already a fan of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams then I could only say that this Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault is a must-have in your collection!!
Here is the kit after I re-arranged all the colours, I think it looks much nicer than the way it came. Although my OCD still wants to organise it again to have all the shades organised even more perfectly!
Have you guys tried any of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream? Or have you collected this Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault already? Let me know your favourite shades! xx
