NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Addis Ababa Review & Swatches

I had first seen NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream on Kandee Johnson's Youtube channel and YES ! I was so fascinated by the color and the texture of the Lip Cream which Kandee couldn't stop praising about. I had to try the NYX Lip Cream for myself and I immediately got it from my online shopping haul from Porkdaisy site. 

I have had this Lip Cream for quite a long time now and after using it a dozen times I think I am at better position to let you all know what I think about it --- 

Product: NYX Soft Lip Cream - Addis Ababa. 
Price: 6$ (But I had got some discount over it) 

Shades Available:   

What NYX says about the Product :

First Look at the Product:   

NYX Soft matte lip cream comes in a transparent plastic tube packaging with a black screw on cap which has a regular doe foot sponge applicator inside.

The black screw cap of the tube has a matte finish which is really classy and sleek.

The applicator picks up enough product for a single application. 

My Take On the Product:

The first thing I noticed the moment the lip cream arrived - was the shade !! I thought I will never have the courage to carry such a shade on my lips. The shade is a blue based bright pink color. The shade is a true fuchsia color which made me shudder at the thought of sporting such a bright color on my lips. Thankfully ! The shade doesn't show up that bright after application on your lips. 

 The product has a vanilla like fragrance to it.  The texture is light, soft and cream like... Its absolute treat on your lips.

I am absolutely in love with the Lip Cream - it glides onto your lips and a single swipe instantly manages to color your lips. You can easily go overboard with this particular shade of the lip cream. Hence I recommend dabbing the sponge applicator onto your lips and then using a clean finger to spread the color evenly. 

The lip cream instantly sets onto your lips to give a matte effect look which is not drying. However, In winters they give a cracky appearance to your lips hence I suggest topping the lip cream off a good amount of gloss. 

The staying power is EXCELLENT - They wont budge from your lips for good 6- 7 hours. The color pay off is a WINNER !! They ll remain on your lips even after you had your meals. 

The amount of lip cream required to apply on your lips is very little. So one tube of lip cream will last for ages. Dab once on your lips to give it a slight tint on your lips and apply a gloss over it to give it a glossy healthy pink lips. 
You can also layer twice to give a opaque matte pink lips effect. If you layer the lip cream more than once It will give you major cracky appearance to your lips... 

For all the girls who love - Absolute Matte, Opaque, Long Lasting Color on you lips... These babies are for you ....
