NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo - Review, Photos, Swatches

Monte Carlo - one of Europe's leading tourist destinations. It is widely known for it's casino and prominence. A movie of the same name, featuring Selena Gomez. Leighton Meester, Katie Cassidy, and Cory Monteith, was just released in 2011. (via Wikipedia and IMDb)

I'm a huge Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester fan. I know their songs (I try to sing them, too. When I'm alone. LOL) But.. I'm a bigger fan of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo.

Lip swatch
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is a line of lip creams that are creamy when applied, and dries out matte. Most of the shades are opaque and can be worn with ease, even by girls with pigmented lips; Monte Carlo is one of those shades. Though it's not as opaque as Amsterdam and San Paulo, it is buildable so you just need to apply a little bit more to achieve perfect opacity.The color is a deep red, almost like Russian Red.

PROS: decent opacity and longevity, great formula (creamy to matte), the shade I believe can work on most skin tones. It is also affordable and handy.
CONS: It needs a little more effort compared to Amsterdam and San Paulo. 

VERDICT: 4 out of 5 CHILLIS!
