Shiny on the left side and matte finish on the right side.
NYX soft matte lip cream is neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. I bought san paulo which is plummy-pink, but it looks like pink. I really like how matte and pigmented the lip cream is, but it dries out my lips. It's not moisturizing as it says.
