Hi everyone! I took a little trip to Ulta the other day and, per usual, I drifted towards the NYX display. (It's so cheap, how can I resist?!) On a whim, I picked up the Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo. I would describe it as a cranberry color, perfect for fall! :) Now that I get to wake up an hour later on school days (I miss you yoga, but I don't miss waking up at 6!), I find myself willing and able to put more effort into my makeup look for school. I've been quite interested in finding some new lip products to try out because there are some truly beautiful fall colors out there! I'll admit it: I hate lipstick just as much as I hate lip gloss. Lip gloss is sticky and so impractical, and to be quite honest (I'm sure most of you will agree, especially if you're a student) I'm not conscious or time-savvy enough in the morning to spend 10 minutes struggling to put on lipstick!

Here is the color on me! I know, strange background...I have to go where the light is! ;)

This product is absolutely AMAZING. Why, you ask? Well, for one this product goes on like an absolute dream! It has a doe-foot applicator which makes putting it on (and reapplying) super easy! I'd say it probably takes me about 20 seconds to put on, which is such an improvement compared to how long it takes me to put on a lipstick. Another reason why I love it so much is because it legit smells like cake. So yummy! The formula in itself is great, it's a matte lip cream so it drys and makes your lips look wonderful. I wore it for about 6 hours at school today, and I only had to reapply once because I ate and drank. Today a girl in one of my classes complimented me while I was wearing it :) I love this product so much I plan on buying it in every color! No joke.

Have you tried the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream? Would you try it? What's your favorite fall lip color? Let me know in the comments!

until next time,
