Review + Swatches: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania

21 Jan

Hello everyone. I should’ve posted this last year. But I feel like I didnt use it enough so I decided to schedule it this month. This was an impulse buy. I was in SM Aura and had nothing to do. I went to the department store and did a few swatches. I usually dont wear dark lippies but this shade is always sold out in-stores. I grabbed the opportunity. Hahaha.

It has a whipped texture while gliding it on the lips. It’s matte but suprisingly it feels light. My lips are prone to dryness. This didnt cause chapped lips. The only con I have for this is it’s not transfer proof for me. It got on my teeth but that’s just me. I guess my two front teeth are too big. Hahaha. It’s a great color although I’m not confident to wear dark lipsticks. No wonder it’s out of stock most of the time at their local stores and kiosks.
