NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo - Review, Photos, Swatches

San Paulo (São Paulo) - is the largest city in Brazil, the largest city in the southern hemisphere and South America, and the world's seventh largest city by population. (via Wikipedia

I was so excited to learn that I (and the rest of my countrymen) don't need to get a VISA to be able to fly to the beautiful Brazil!!! (For more info about this, click HERE) The country, the people, and it's beaches are gorgeous! For now, I'll stick to a piece (or at least inspired by a city there) of Brazil: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo (São Paulo).

San Paulo is lighter and brighter than NYX Matte Lipstick in Merlot and MAC Craving. It is a dark pinkish red. It's no as bright as the typical reds and pinks. It's subtle yet still have enough punch of color to make your puckers cute and kissable.

Apologies for the different lighting, I was outside when I took the photo of the lip swatch. It was pretty sunny that time (10:00am-11:00am). The more accurate swatches are the ones on my skin. 

PROS: Formula is great: creamy while being applied, dries out matte. The color is "neutral" enough to work for probably everyone.Opacity is awesome! Longevity is pretty decent for a drugstore brand and it is affordable.
CONS: I can't think of any. If you have problems with using wands, then that's probably it. Personally, I don't mind them. :)

VERIDCT: 5 out of 5 CHILIS!
