Product Swatches and Review: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

I picked up a pack of 3 soft matte lip creams about a year ago because I saw that there was a 3-pack on sale at a local Urban Outfitters. I didn't even know anything about them at the time and my expectations were very low. I used and loved my original three so much (Tokyo, Antwerp and Addis Ababa) that just last week I decided to pick up two more (Milan and Sao Paulo). 

 I wanted to take swatches of my mini-collection to give you guys an idea of the pigmentation of these (swatches were all done with one swipe) - these are highly bold, pigmented, long wearing and last well for me even through eating and drinking. I get a solid 6 hours of wear time from these before they start to disappear off my lips. They are not the most moisturizing product and can even leave your lips a bit dry but this is not a problem if you apply a tiny bit of vaseline or chapstick first.

Tokyo: Bubblegum pink
Milan: Mid-tone blue-toned pink
Antwerp: Mid tone yellow-toned pink
San Paulo: Plummy pink
Addis Ababa: Bright fuchsia

Antwerp is the most unique color of the bunch, I don't have a color like this in my lip product collection. The middle three, MIlan, Antwerp and San Paulo are my favorites. Let me know what you think about this collection and if you have any other recommendations for me to pick up!
