The Perfect Nude (for now!)

I love lipstick.

This is no secret to anyone that knows me. Red is my go to but a good nude is hard to come by. I find that they tend to have an orange undertone, not down, or just not the right shade for me. But I have finally found one that I won't be putting down anytime soon!

This stuff is amazing! NYX, you may just be my new favourite lipstick line. The shade I've fallen in love with is called "Abu Dhabi," and it's gorgeous. A nice deep, rose-beige. Let's break it down: 

Okay...so I need to work on my swatch skills.

The Good

  • Since it's a 'soft matte lip cream' it doesn't dry your lips out! (seriously, it's winter and it wasn't flaky!)
  • I tried it with and without a lip liner and this stuff has serious sticking powers
  • THE PRICE! $9? Yes please!

The Bad

  • It does stay on, but the colour fades just a wee bit (again it's a nude so no problem but might be an issue with a darker shade)

  • ???

The Verdict

Go buy it, now.

I'm so impressed by this that I even texted my girls immediately to go buy their own, I'm on a perfect lippy high. 

Let me know how you love it!
