NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream | New Shades for 2016 - "Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favorite." via nyxcosmetics.com


NYX has surprised fans with all new shades of their award-winning Soft Matte Lip Creams. I say "It's about time!" They originally have 22 shades: Abu Dhabi, Addis Ababa, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Athens, Buenos Aires, Cairo, Cannes, Copenhagen, Ibiza, Istanbul, London, Milan, Monte Carlo, Morocco, Prague, San Paulo, Stockholm, Syndey, Tokyo, Transylvania, and Zurich.

For 2016, they have added twelve new shades to their raved Soft Matte Lip Cream line: Berlin, Paris, Budapest, Havana, Madrid, San Juan, Vancouver, Seoul, Moscow, Rome, Manila, and Dubai.

I've scoured the internets looking for actual swatches but these babies are so (very) new that I've only found some bits and pieces and no proper reviews and swatches yet.

NYX's website do have some photos and swatches and I've compiled them all as reference. I don't know if these swatches actually resemble how they look in real life but for now, they would do.

Vancouver (SMLC20) - Deep purple
Seoul (SMLC30) - Violet
Moscow (SMLC31) - Navy blue
Rome (SMLC32) - Medium nude with red undertone
Manila (SMLC33) - Coral with pink undertone
Dubai (SMLC34) - Medium cool brown

The new lip creams are dominated by nudes, browns and vampy colors. Moscow, Havana, and Seoul stand out as they are quite unconventional shades. I appreciate that NYX isn't afraid to offer these bold and offbeat hues to the masses. Normally, we can only see them used in the runways or editorials but now, more adventurous gals can actually try them out. They have become accessible both in logistics and price. And how cool is it to have Manila included? I would definitely get that shade, if not for the color, for sentimentality's sake. :D
