Now that the winter holidays are so close, I thought I would treat myself to one of the NYX lip/eye/face collections. Today, however, I am reviewing the Moscow Soft Matte Lip Cream that comes in the Moscow palette.
NYX Moscow is a deep navy blue, that has the typical whipped cream texture of the Soft Matte Lip Creams. It applies streaky and settles in the lip lines, so you are probably better off applying a lip liner all over your lips first. For that, you can either use a transparent lip liner (one of those universal ones), or you can go with a creamy navy eye liner (if you have one in your collection) or try the NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in Jet Set or Foul Mouth. As far as longevity goes, this particular shade will stay on well if you are wearing it just for a night out, and sipping your drinks through a straw. It is not completely transfer proof, you may need to reapply throughout the day/night. The formula is non drying, but not moisturizing either. You can remove it with your regular makeup remover, except you will need to work a bit more because it stains mildly.
