So, the liquid lipstick rage is still going on super strong. And I happen to love it a lot! My liquid matte lipstick collection is growing bigger with each passing day.
For example : "It goes like this.....Hmmm, I have a bright pink lipstick, but do I have it in the matte liquid form? NO! Ooh, I should to get it asap!" :D
I am sure you have all read about my never dying love for the Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams (if not, then what are you doing...head over here!!). So I was pretty much covered with those, except for a nude color, and that gap was filled with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi.
The texture and other properties are exactly the same as the Miss Claire ones. Obviously the Miss Claire ones being the dupes of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams.
Abu Dhabi is a nude brown color. It doesn't have any pink undertones to it, just a clean beige brown. The color in itself is a pretty one, but it doesn't go too well on my skintone. It washes me out a bit and the only way I can probably pull it off is with a heavy super smoky eye.
Else, on other days, I like to mix a little pink lipstick/lipliner underneath to make it work for me.
Another way I like to make Abu Dhabi work for me is by layering it with another lip color. So if I want a nude/neutral base to brign out the color of a lipstick more, I pop a bit of this under the lipstick.
Price : 600 INR for 8 ml
If you are on the lookout for matte lip creams, NYX is one of the best ones out there. They have many colors and you are bound to like a few. It is a bit expensive yes, the Miss Claire ones being the cheaper alternative. Either way, these Soft Matte Lip Creams won't disappoint you :)
