NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa Review, LOTD

I can never forget my first purchase from NYX as I was drooling over the product for quite some time and finally when I had it my happiness knew no bounds :D I am a great fan of all kind of lip products and lip creams are my recent passion. Here is the review of one such product for all you girls here.


"It is not lipstick nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you have experienced before. It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte." - These lines on the tube best describes how this lip cream works.

I have already used the Bourjois Lip Cream and there is a little difference in the way they work. The Bourjois one is quite opaque and matte where as the Nyx one is very light like a gloss and once it dries it finishes up as a super matte lip color. If you think you haven't exfoliated your lips pretty well, then this cream will show even the teeny meany flaws, so pamper your lips perfectly before using this one.


  • The lip cream is very creamy and glossy and turns into pure matte after application.
  • Applicator is really good and helps easy application.
  • The shade Addis Ababa [fuchsia] suits almost all skin tones.
  • The color is buildable. I wear it very light in day time and layer it up for the evenings.
  • Doesn't have any strong fragrance.
  • Great color choice available.
  • Does not leave my lips dry.
  • Cruelty Free product.

  • This turns super matte after application and not every one would be happy with that finish. This would enhance even the smallest mark on your lips !!! If your lips are not well exfoliated then don't use this.


The price of Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream is Rs.750 for 6.5 g. I got it in sale for Rs.525 :D

LOTD - This is how light I wear it in the Day Time


I like the concept of Lip Creams and I wish this was more opaque and pigmented for my lips. This is a unique product and if you spot it on sale you can give this a shot. I would like to try just one more shade [San Paulo] from this and might be the shade Antwerp too :D
