Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa

 Killing two birds with one stone as I practice techniques on personalizing blog pics and update the blog at the same time.

Addis Ababa is my second Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream. The first one was Milan, which I reviewed here in case you missed it.

I don't have a lot to add to what I already said about the product in that review, so just check that out for more details. This post is going to focus on the shade in particular.


 

Product Code

Addis Ababa is a bright blue-toned pink. It glides on creamily then sets into a matte finish in seconds. However, if you look closely, you'll be able to see some fine silvery glitters, I guess to keep the color bright and not dull.

In my SMLC Milan post, I mentioned feeling intimidated by the brightness of this color. I think my taste has changed since then, because when I first tried it, I thought I'd be disappointed at its lack of oomph. Turns out, this gets brighter as it sets. Whew! I love all pink lippies, but this is definitely a favorite.

I got this at a bazaar sometime during Christmas season. It cost PHP 300, which is a little more than if you get it from popular resellers, but I was already there, so it was cheaper than having to pay for shipping, or going all the way to another store just to get it. Also, Addis Ababa is constantly out of stock. I was lucky to get my hands on it at all.

  6. I think it could pass for fuchsia when it sets, but it's a tad cooler IMO. =))
