Pucker Up! | NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa.

It seems like every beauty blogger I know has given these NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams a try. Everyone except me, that is. Boo hoo. And so when I did some shopping at Skye Avenue a few weeks ago, I made it a point to include one of these Lip Creams in my shopping cart.
Choosing which shade to try was easy. I went for the most popular (as far as the reviews that I've read are concerned) in the bunch - Addis Ababa.
Addis Ababa ♥
Bright fuchsia with blue undertones, Addis Ababa has become known as the 'Barbie pink' shade among NYX fans and lip cream lovers. I love how this shade of (hot) pink screams OF femininity and screams FOR attention.
Barbie pink!
It comes with a doe-foot applicator, which I find very convenient when it comes to building color on my lips. Addis Ababa has a great, buildable color, and highly-pigmented at that.
Gorgeous, just gorgeous. :)
This product glides on your lips like a dream and dries into a gorgeous matte finish. It's feels neither sticky nor heavy, and it lasts on your lips for hours even after eating or drinking. It also has that distinct caramel cheesecake scent (similar to Miners Matte Factor Lip Paint) which I'm really crazy about.

Now here's the thing about these Lip Creams. They can make your lips look really dry, especially when you're wearing them thick. Nothing to worry about, since a good lip balm does the trick. Maybelline Baby Lips is a good choice, but in this nippy weather, I prefer EOS, my all-time favorite lip balm. Remember to apply the lip balm BEFORE you apply the Lip Cream! You won't get the 'matte effect' if you do it otherwise.

What I love:
- Gorgeous shade
- Highly-pigmented
- Buildable color
- Nice scent
- Stays on your lips for hours
- Kiss-proof
- Affordable price
- Cruelty-free (not tested on animals)

What you might not like:
- Has a tendency to dry out the lips (nothing a good lip balm can't handle, though).

After Addis Ababa, I can now say that I'm a fan of matte lippies. I've actually professed my love for this product on Instagram, where most of my recent selcas feature this product. Check out the hot pink kisser, haha!

The color seemed super bright but it actually looks good on the lips! Haven't tried any of Nyx's products yet, how I wish they'd open shop here in our country.

Addis Ababa looks good on you! :) I haven't tried NYX SMLCs pa. I've only tried their Round Lipsticks which easily transfer :( I prefer matte lipsticks too because they're longer-wearing. Will try to get my hands on some SMLCs soon :D

this one is gorgeous! my sister has been asking me if what brand to buy when it comes to matte lipstick, yet, I cant answer her since I dont have any idea on what to give. But with this, now I know what to tell. ;) said...

I've always loved NYX and the soft matte lip creams from them is something I've been using since the start of the year.

Wow, I've never tried a matte lipstick before. Reading this, I guess I should give it a try :3
