The Lipstick Compendium: NYX 'Addis Ababa' Matte Cream

Super quickly, I want to show you a new lip obsession of mine. I bought this a while back but I never really used it, but I am now really obsessed with it! It is one of the NYX Matte Creams in the color Addis Ababa.

Addis Ababa is a creamy hot pink that is still wearable. It is not too overwhelming, but it is bright enough that is gives a nice pop of color to your lips.

PROS:
~The smell! It smells so good. Like vanilla cupcakes.
~This is smooth, and it glides on the lips really nicely.
~The color, although matte, does not look flat or dry.
~This lasts on my lips for up to 4-5 hrs and it fades gradually
~Affordable. I think this was about $4-5.

CONS:
~It can be streaky on the lips


*The color is going to look a little streaky, I didn't notice this until I was uploading the pictures. I don't have time to retake pictures, so bear with me on this one. But at least you can see in action how these can look streaky if you are not careful.


I was wearing this when I did my Little Twin Stars FOTD.


Overall
I really love this color because I can wear it without worrying about lip liners or lip glosses. I love the smell and how it feels on my lips. The only thing I have to worry about is streaks which is easily avoidable it you tap the color gently with your fingertips.

Rating: 9.5/10
Recommend? Yes~ I would suggest that everyone who has NYX available to them to try at least one of these.
Repurchase? If, or once I am done with this one, I will definitely repurchase it!

  5. I absolutely love NYX matte lip creams though I'm not a big fan of the smell. But for how much these cost the smell is something I can definitely live with! This shade is really pretty! Goes well with the Little Twin Stars look too =)
