NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (08-San Paulo) Review



And this is the last (for now) among my soft matte lip cream posts! This shade is San Paulo. Honestly, I would say that when I saw this on the internet, I thought that it was going to be this brownish MLBB shade, but when it came, it turns out that it was a strongly reddish shade. Despite having brown undertones, the red undertone dominates. 

With all honesty, I have a feeling that all school principals order this lippie because all I could think of were teachers and principals when I tried this color out. It's not a bad thing actually-- this shade reminds me a lot of education XDDD



If you look closely at the wand, you'd also notice that it may be a reddish brown shade, but it looks more reddish. It looks like bricks in a distant way, too.

And these are the swatches without and with flash, respectively. Do you remember your school principal now???



On the lips this is how it looks like. It's not very vibrant if you don't slather it on thickly, so at least the color is buildable. I can put a thin layer just for that educator look or slather it on thickly to make a statement lip.

And this is me wearing the lippie. You can notice that it's not an MLBB shade, but not a striking one either. It's one of those middle tone shades you use for when you want to have obvious color on your lips for an everyday setting. (am i still making sense) 


Is it just me or does this shade also remind you of your former school principal? Please do tell me in the comments box!
