The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, with each shade named after a dream holiday destination, is firmly on our list of holy grail lip products. For just $13, you get a wonderfully pigmented matte liquid lipstick that goes on smoothly with the doe foot applicator, and smells like a vanilla dream. The shade that seems to be constantly sold out is Stockholm, a mid-toned beige pink that pretty much makes for the perfect neutral lip.

Now that NYX has relaunched at Sephora Singapore, you might stand a better chance of stocking up on Stockholm in the short term – but act fast, because we expect them to be in short supply once again pretty soon. But while you’re at it, do check out the 8 new Soft Matte Lip Cream shades that have been added to the fold this year. Another benefit of this brand relaunch: we now get to enjoy new launches the same time as the US.

This medium warm brown is as chic as the artsy city its named after. Brown lips are having a moment again; you’ll do well to have this bold shade in your stash.

 

havana

Havana
Wear this blue-toned purple for a night of dirty dancing, or just to make a statement in the day.

Madrid
A deep cranberry red that’s a warmer-toned alternative to your regular red lipstick. Use this to create a berry stained lip.

This coral pink, as vibrant as the Filipino capital, will instantly brighten up the face. We recommend wearing it with a fierce cat eye flick.

Moscow
Yes, this is a full on navy blue. Obviously let your lips be the focus of your face if you choose to wear this – no competing blue eyeshadow, please.

 

paris

A shade named after the City of Love is expectedly pink. Definitely a date-appropriate colour.

 

san juan

San Juan
An orange with peachy undertones is another shade we consider a staple, one that represents summer and is an instant mood-lifter.

Give this dusty deep purple a try, pairing it with neutral eyeshadow for a real polished look.
