NYX Addis Ababa Swatch

Hey everyone! You know what, I have been buying so much makeup recently, it's ridiculous! But what can I do, I'm just a girl- standing in front of makeup counters, asking all the makeup  to get in my makeup stash. Haha!

One of the things I bought recently (before I went to my Subic trip) was NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa. It's one of the most famous shade of the Matte Lip Creams so I knew I had to have it. :p I got this from Purpektion Shop.


 


I wore this when I went to a children's party for no reason actually. I got it the day before and I was just really excited to wear it. And since I was not wearing too much eye makeup anyways, I knew it would look good with my look.

Products Used:

Face:
Nivea Visage Sparkling White Day Care
Fashion 21 Loose Powder #6
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Caramel
Maybelline Clear Smooth Blush in Fresh Rose



 

Eyes:
Ever Bilena Eyebrow Pencil in Brown
Maybelline Long Lasting Gel Eyeliner in Brown
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese
Maybelline Long Extreme Stiletto Mascara



Lips:
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa

Here are close up photos of the lip cream:

   


Can I just share? I love the smell so much? It smells like vanilla ice cream! :) The thing that I don't like about it is when you apply it, it feels a little bit too fluid but once it dries, it's okay.

Here are more photos of me wearing Addis Ababa:

As you can tell, the color becomes darker and more vibrant once it's all dried up. I have to tell you, it looks more vibrant in person compared to pictures. I like it a lot! :) I can't wait to pair it with my hot pink lipstick. Woohoo!
