One of the most exciting Christmas releases that drugstores have ever seen has landed its way into my arms and onto my blog. Today’s post is my NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault Review*.
Are you overwhelmed by happiness over colour selection? Because I sure was!
The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault has an amazing 36 total shades of the beloved NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. They are minis and contain 0.15fl which is 4.7ml. 22 of the shades are fan favourites and there are also 14 exclusive to this vault. It seems that this vault contains pretty much every colour under the sun.
If you’ve never tried NYX Soft Matte Creams before, here is how I like to describe them. Think of them as a liquid lipstick with a mousse texture. They go on feeling quite creamy and dry to almost matte. They’re not quite 100% matte, but they’re very close.
They are the type of product that you will have to reapply after eating, but they look absolutely stunning. Because they don’t completely dry, that also means that they’re very comfortable on the lips – which is great!

The majority of the 36 shades applied very well. I did however find the colours Seoul, Bangkok, Havana, Amsterdam and Budapest a little bit tricky. Amsterdam was probably the most difficult. Looking at online swatches it doesn’t look like there’s a problem with its formula so maybe I just got unlucky. These shades still came out pretty well but they applied a little patchy so they’d probably just need more work.
I think that if you love everything NYX and want to discover a different liquid lipstick finish, you should add this to your own Christmas wishlist. It’s something super accessible which also makes it great to purchase for someone that loves playing around with various lip colours.
The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault is available at Priceline and Target for $79.
