It's Hump day! You know what that means right? This week is almost over...In honor of Wednesday I am reviewing another lippie product for the lipstick junkie in all of us. I have so much lipstick, & with a new collection coming out almost every other week sometimes I forget to show love to my old favorites. Some lipsticks are like a good pair of shoes, they just work for you, no matter the look your going for or the style you feel like you can ALWAYS pull them off. I have been a "makeup collector" for some time now, one of my favorite drugstore nudes ever has to be NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi.
NYX describes Abu Dhabi as a "deep rose-beige".
NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are available in 22 different shades on their website that range from subtle beige to in your face vampy colors. You can also purchase NYX at some beauty supply & drugstores. If you are purchasing in stores finding popular colors might be a little tricky.
These Soft Matte Lip Creams have a beautiful vanilla cake icing, they are just as creamy too! They feel like icing for your lips, only less edible & more colorful. NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams start of as a cream & dry down to a beautiful matte finish. I own about 10 of these the lighter shades usually last around 6 hours on my lips without eating & drinking 4 if I am having a full meal.
The biggest con to NYX Lip Creams is the fact that they tend to be super drying. I prep my lips extra carefully when I pan to wear any of the lipsticks from this line.
For the wrap up Abu Dhabi is one of my favorite NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. I do like this product for those looking for a alternative to liquid lipsticks or newbies to the idea of liquid lipsticks. NYX is a great drugstore brand that does a goo job of creating products that will suit most skin tones. Abu Dhabi gets 3 Kinks, I just wish this formula was a lot less drying.
