NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream: Antwerp

Antwerp is my favourite of these lip creams - it looks lovely on Noodle Arms. Unfortunately, it looks pants on me - it has a weird orange look about it that doesn't happen with her.

As with yesterday's Tokyo post, I've taken photos of Noodles' lips both on application, and 20 minutes later once it has dried.

  1. This is my favorite color so far. The color dries a really lovely shade, but I just have to say how strange I think these are. They seem like a stain but a dry cream? odd or maybe it's just me.

  2. Claire, they dry down to a kind of stain. It's hard to describe, but they're something between a lip stain and one of those long-lasting lipsticks like Lipfinity.

    This one is such a gorgeous colour - I wish it didn't go orange on me. :-(

  3. These remind me of an AVON product thats s'posed to give a velvet finish but just looks really odd - like a lipstick thats been applied really thickly and allowed to dry in. Love the colour because it's far more subtle and natural than it looks in the packaging

  4. aaah I should get this~~ thanks for the nice swatches!
