City Color Creamy Lips in Mai Tai, Review and Swatches
Lip creams are the best options for the ones who want matte lips but cannot handle matte liquid lipsticks. NYX lip creams are the most raved and loved which i also found quite good. However there is one less costly option also available by City Color called Creamy Lips. Unfortunately there are not many shades to choose from but i have noticed that they have increased their shade range since i got one for me. Let me tell you if this lip cream in shade Mai Tai is worth having or not.

City Color Creamy Lips in Mai Tai Lip SwatchMy Thoughts
This lip cream comes in round plastic tube which have wide bottom and wide black cap. The packaging is very similar to Clazona 24 hours matte lip gloss. It comes with doe foot brush applicator which is perfect to apply the product on lips. The texture of this lip cream is thick and mousse like which is also similar to NYX lip creams. There is very light vanilla smell to it which fade after application.

The color Mai Tai is medium brown shade with peach hint to it. It is a lovely every day neutral shade and will compliment almost all skin tones. The pigmentation is quite good as well and in single swipe you can get fully opaque color. The application is very smooth and it applies evenly without tugging. It doesn't instantly dry out and gives you enough time to apply and adjust on lips. After few minutes it dries into semi matte finish. The formula is non drying and is not moisturizing as well.

Once it dries down, it feels very light weight on lips and doesn't settle into lip lines. As it has creamy formula, it does transfer a little but it is less then NYX lip creams. There is no patchiness or flakiness while it fades and if during eating some of it fades from inside lips, i simply rub the lips and it looks even again which is huge point for me. The lasting power is almost 4 to 5 hours without eating or drinking.

Overall i really liked this formula which is exact dupe of NYX lip creams and is even slightly better. I would definitely be picking more colors in it. if you are looking for budget friendly lip creams, City Color creamy lips are your best option.

  • Creamy and mousse like texture
  • Applies evenly
  • Dries into comfortable semi matte finish
  • Light weight

Not in Favor
