As you know, I’m obsessed with the soft matte lip creams by NYX and am slowly building up my collection. Today I added one more- in the shade ‘Monte Carlo’. This is a beautiful deep red shade. It looks quite dark on the outside, however, once applied, it is slightly lighter in colour. I do believe it can be built up though. All of the soft matte lip creams are incredibly pigmented and are quite opaque.
In direct sunlight. It looks quite light.
Away from the sunlight.
I don’t own many red lipsticks, as I don’t feel they suit my features. However this one is quite soft in colour and is a great alternative to bold red lipstick. I plan to wear this with subtle black eyeliner; you wouldn’t want to take the focus away from the lips.
What do you think of this shade?
