NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream & Tango with Bronzing Stick

I mentioned in this post that I was recently asked to be NYX UK's blogger of the month for June. I was kindly gifted a few NYX products - you can see my first review here. Today I have the two more items to show you. First up is the Soft Matte Lip Cream in Buenos Aires - a soft orange toned coral.

NYX soft matte lip creams smell like cake (yum!) and feel silky when applied to the lips. Buenos Aires needs a few swipes to build up colour and its one of those products that's unforgiving on the lips - it clings to any dry patches so your lips have to be in really good condition beforehand. That said, the lip cream feels comfortable to wear leaving a soft matte finish. Buenos Aires is a gorgeous shade that I feel would especially look good on tanned skin. I've already got my eye on addis ababa - a bright fuchsia pink. For £5, they are worth the money, but like I said you do need to make sure your lips are in good condition before you apply.

The second product, is my personal favourite - Tango with Bronzing Stick in Merengue Flush.

Tango with bronzing Stix is described by NYX as a cream bronzer which highlights, sculpts and warms the complexion in a portable applicator. Merengue Flush is a rosy pink with gold shimmer. This is a shade that works as a blush on light skin tones and as a highlighter on darker skin. The tango with bronzing stix is housed in a twist up tube. You don't necessarily need to use a brush to apply as its really creamy. I apply it straight to my cheeks and blend with my finger.
Meregue flush gives the skin a beautiful 'lit from within' glow. It's very shimmery so its something I prefer to wear in the evening. I'm really impressed with the formulation - it stays put all day and doesn't look oily, just a lovely dewy glow. For £8, this is a beaute and and an ideal travel item too!
