I am such a huge fan of the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams (SMLC) that I had to try this out. I tried to pick a colour unlike any I already had in my collection, this lead me to the brown/purple tones of Embellishment.
I found it to be quite sticky the first time I tried it, but if you give it time this goes away. It does take quite a while for it to go matte but once it does, it doesn’t budge. My ultimate test for a lipstick (or any makeup) is to wear it to work. On a regular 6 hour shift I tend to eat and drink lots of water. If a lippy can stay put trough that then it must be good. I decided to wear this in NYE meaning more eating and drinking than usual. By the end of the shift only the inner parts of my lips had started to fade.
I find this pretty easy to apply, the long, thin brush makes it simple enough. This particular shade is quite daring for me as it is much darker than what I’m used to, however the number of compliments I received was more than any other lipstick I’ve ever worn.
