NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan

This is one of the products that I received in my Glam Bag for the month of December, full sized NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream.  Most of you may know by now what the Glam Bag is, but a quick overview is that it's just like any beauty subscription (Birchbox, Glossybox, etc.) and was founded by YouTube gurus, one being Michelle Phan.

I was excited to receive this NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the Glam Bag because I have been wanting to try them, but have been skeptical.  The color I received was Milan, which is absolutely perfect for my taste in color when it comes to lip color.

This is a matte lip cream, so it's neither a lipstick or a gloss.  It's more of a creamy lip paint that gives your lips a perfect touch of soft color in a matte finish.  It is quite moisturizing, and is not as thick as I expected.  It's very blendable, and the formula is quite light, making application very easy and smooth.

And, as you can see, the rosy pink color of Milan is quite opaque and pigmented, giving my lips the perfect pop of color.

These are valued at around $6, making them very affordable for the quality.  I am definitely considering picking up more colors to add to my collection.
