NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Istanbul Review
Hooray for another tube of soft matte lip cream! the first review I did like two days ago was on the shade of Amsterdam. Today's review is on this rosy pink shade called Istanbul. 

Like any of the other SMLC's this product ensures long wear, a nice matte finish, and comes in a nice vanilla scent.

Like I've previously mentioned, this is a rosy pink color. It's like a muted rose color. 

When swatched on the arm, it looks a bit more coral and shocking, but when swatched on the lips it's this super calm color that can really serve as a good MLBB lippie! By the way, these are swatches without flash and with flash (second photo).

On the lips, it looks really calm, definitely no shock here. It's more on the cool toned shade, with barely any trace of coral.

All in all, I do think that this shade is probably one of the best in the lineup in terms of practicality because it's a good MLBB shade that there's a lot of applications that you can do with it. You can pair this with a smokey eye, a natural look, or even a no makeup look. Or if you're really lazy, you can just wear this alongside some blush to look freshened up. This is the kind of lip color for girls who want color but are afraid of color (yes oxymoron intended).
