The NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream shades deliver a burst of pearly color and set to a stunning matte finish. These little beauties are just as lightweight, delightfully creamy and sweetly scented as all the shades you know and love!
I like these NYX Soft Matte Metallic Lip Creams because they are almost a metallic matte. They definitely dry down and they do feel dry on the lips, so if you don’t like that feeling then you won’t like these. How can you now though? These shades are amazing!
These have beautiful pigment and they glide on the lips nicely. There are a few that went on my lips patchy, those shades include:Havana and Manila. You really have to layer those two up for them to look good. Other than those two, the shades are amazing! My favorites are: Madrid, Milan, and Monte Carlo.
These last a long time! They were really difficult to take off as I was watching them, so you know the lasting power is there.
They are affordable and the shades are amazing, totally worth the buy!
As I stated before – I love the shade range in this palette. I am a huge fan of dusty mauve shades. I have always been a fan of Too Faced. I remember buying my first higher-end eyeshadow palette from them and was hooked ever since. They definitely have some palettes that aren’t that great but I will say that I really liked this one.
I am so happy that this palette isn’t loaded with shimmers. There is a good mix of mattes and that makes me happy! The formula is just like any other amazing Too Faced palette. The shadows are super buttery, bendable, and pigmented. I love every shade except for Creme De La Peach and Peaches & Dreams. I am not the biggest fan of yellow-orange shades on my lids. But other that those two shades, I love everything else about this palette.
Pucker up and powder your pout! Featuring a pillowy cushion-applicator, NYX Professional Makeup Powder Puff Lippie Powder Lip Cream goes on mousse-y and sets to a powdery-soft finish. Achieve a flush of color in eight vibrant shades – from warm peach to true red, and hot pink to cool plum – for an irresistible, just-kissed look.
If you like matte lipsticks then these are for you! There are as the name suggests – a Powder Lippie. These have a powder mouse-like consistency.
They have really nice pigment and they glide on the lips nicely. These dry down to a powdery finish but are not transfer proof. They last quite a few hours and almost leave a stain on your lips. I think they are comfortable for being a matte lip product.
The only thing I don’t like is the applicator. I feel like you can’t get a precise line. Other than that, these lippies are another hit for NYX!
Right now I can only find it on milanicosmetics.com, but I am hoping to see it at Ulta and CVS. Only time will tell.

I did a review when the Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palettes came out and I was in LOVE!! Click here to see my review. I did a review video on them as well and I remember saying “Milani better come out with an all matte palette, because it would be amazing!”. Sure enough they exceeded my expectations! I loved the mattes so much in those palettes. They are hands-down the best matte drugstore eyeshadows.
With that said, this new palette is just as amazing as their other mattes in those palettes. I love everything about this palette. I love the packaging, the way it’s laid out, and the shades.
The formula is beautiful and very comparable to a high-end palette. They are super smooth, easy to blend, very pigmented, and look amazing on the eyes. There is something about this formula that really smooths out everything on the eyelids, it’s hard to explain. It almost makes your eyelids look airbrushed.
The only downside for some people will be the rice. I personally feel like $20 is totally worth it, especially since it’s better than some high-end eyeshadows. I would pay that price all day for any palette that has a similar formula as this one.
I hope that they come out with more matte shades ranges. I would love to see a cool matte version with grays, taupes, dusty roses, etc.
I will say this is the best matte and best eyeshadow palette from the drugstore!!
Explore a rainbow of color with NYX Professional Makeup’s Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palettes! Available in gorgeous color combinations, this striking set features ten bouncy, silky-to-the-touch, eyeshadows in a range of matte and shimmer finishes. Spoiler alert: You are going to freak out when you feel these soft and pillowy shades for the first time – the marshmallow-like texture reminds us of our fave Japanese treat – mochi!
These palettes didn’t really WOW me, partly because I LOVE matte shadows and these are all shimmery shadows. If you love shimmery shadows or the colors of these shadows then you will love these palettes.
The eyeshadow formula is good. It is nice, creamy, and blends well. They work better with your finger rather than a brush, but they still work with a brush, the pigmentation isn’t as great though. Both eyeshadow formulas perform the same, but I prefer the Sleek and Chic eyeshadow palette because of the shade selection. I will say that the one shade that disappointed me from that palette is the dark black shade. The pigmentation is really sheer for that one, as you can see from the swatches.
Another downfall is the price. I feel like $20 is too much for this palette. It think it should be priced closer to $12-$15. Ulta always has sales on NYX products so wait for a sale to pick one up.
I bought mine in the color 24 Natural Beige. The color is perfect for me. It’s not to yellow and not too pink, it’s the perfect neutral shade for my skin tone.
When I saw this I thought it was just going to be a normal powder that is suitable for dry skin. But I was wrong, this is just a nice silky powder that has a slight sheen to it. Half of the powder looks like a highlighter and the other half is just powder. When I first saw that it was a turnoff, but I actually like it now.
The powder is silky and smooth and when you swirl your brush in the two it really just gives your face a beautiful glow. It isn’t glittery or shimmery, it’s just a nice glow. I love using it as a finishing powder after my foundation and concealer is done.
I think the only downfall is the price. I think it should be priced more around the $8.99 mark. If you use your ULTA$3.50 coupon then it’s definitely worth it.
I LOVE this whole collection! The packaging is to die for. I wish all of their packaging could be like this. I love unicorns and the colors that just scream UNICORN! I only picked up a few items but so far I am loving everything.
I love these brushes so much!! They are so soft and so beautiful. I don’t even want to use them because they are so pretty. I just want to put them on display. They are all so soft and they get the job don’t. They blend makeup beautifully and there is nothing bad to say about them. I just wish there were more in the collection!!
If you love shimmery shades, you will love this palette. These are so pigmented and beautiful! I personally love matte eyeshadows more. But if you really love pigmented shimmer shades then you need this. They blend really nicely and look beautiful on the eyes. They almost feel wet like a Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadow. They are all shimmers except for one matte shade which is so pigmented and soft. The white shade is perfect for a highlight on the face as well!
This highlighter is pretty but it isn’t one of those highlighters that will glow from outer space. It is almost more of a natural glow, which I like. I love the different shades. You can use each of them on their own or you can swirl them all together. Either way, they are beautiful!
Of course I had to but this mascara for the packaging!! I love this packaging. I think they should change their original Light, Camera, Lashes Mascara into this packaging forever! This mascara is just an all-around staple. It is a great everyday mascara. It keep the lashes curled, doesn’t budge or flake and makes the lashes look pretty and not too over the top.

This palette is amazing!! I love everything about it. I know the colors aren’t everyday wearable colors, but for some people they can pull it off. I think the colors go really well with each other and they are so visually appealing.
The formula is amazing! I think it is better than the previous palette. This formula is a dream formula. I have nothing bad to say about it. They are SO pigmented!! Not only are they pigmented, but they blend like a dream and there is barely any fall out.
These are all matte shades except two. I can’t tell you how amazing the mattes are. They really could be my favorite formula so far. The shimmers are really nice too, the shades just aren’t my favorite and I don’t wear a lot of shimmer shades.
I wish Jeffree would come out with an all matte palette or just a neutral palette for all of us that love those neutrals.
This palette is amazing and everyone needs it in their collection!
