This year, I decided to treat myself and my clients with a holiday limited edition set from NYX, which is Sugar Trip from the WHIPPED WONDERLAND collection.
12 matte metallic lippies. This is the first time I got my hands onto something like this.
The design is adorable and the products are placed inside like a carousel. Inside you will find a round stand, which is so handy to store the products in (I don’t mean the box itself).
Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream - The NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream shades deliver a burst of pearly color and set to a stunning matte finish. These little beauties are just as lightweight, delightfully creamy and sweetly scented as all the shades you know and love! - Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream
I bought it during the Black Friday sale with 30% off.
Aroma: sweet and vanilla

Texture: all the products are a little bit different in texture. Some of them are more creamy and lightweight, while others are pretty thick. They blend out with ease over the eyelids.
Staying power: the formula is longwearing and it is transfer-proof!
This formula isn’t semi-sheer or tacky, which is so common for many liquid matte lipsticks. It’s truly matte. Just take some time and apply it properly and blend out if you wish. After that, it’ll set itself and you’re ready to go.
Features: this is obvious that your lips have to be nurtured before any matte lipstick application because they tend to show off lip blemishes and crevices. And the metallic products accentuate them even more! So, take care. I bought this set to use for creative makeup for lips and eyes. And I can’t say anything bad here.
Don’t expect that this metallic formula will shine bright like a diamond. Here they are all really wearable.
The colors are magnificent! Have a look at them yourself! :)Different angles:
These are good quality, matte metallics. Genuinely recommend them!
