It’s not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It’s like nothing you’ve experienced before. It’s lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte. These long-lasting lip creams come in 11 different colors that will be sure to keep your lips moisturized and colorful!

My experience with NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 09 Abu Dhabi:

Hey lovely ladies,

How are you all doing? You all must have realised by now that I am such a lipstick junkie ;). Today I am going to review one of the most popular and best lip product by NYX which are the Soft Matte Lip Creams. These have been raved about almost everyplace be it youtube, blogs or vlogs. And they are totally worth the rave. I had to search a lot for these lippies since NYX is not widely available in India and I scouted a lot of online sites for the shades I wanted but most of the times they are sold out. But finally I found them at healthkart and ordered right away. They do cost a dime in India but I just had to get these.


I got three shades Abu Dhabi, Milan and Stockholm and today I will be reviewing Abu Dhabi as it has become my go to shade these days. The number of Abu Dhabi is 09 and it is a gorgeous nude brown shade. It’s more on the brown side than beige and has a slight pink undertone to it. I have not really seen such a pretty colour in any lipstick I have used before. Most of the times such a shade either washes me out or makes me look weird but with this shade I have never had this problem. It looks absolutely adorable and any kind of eye makeup just brings out this shade even more. It’s a great office wear shade and can be carried off so easily. It would suit both fair and dusky skin tones aptly.

The smell of these lip creams is like vanilla and I love that. The formula is neither runny nor too thick it is just perfect and it is so creamy and glides on like a dream. The applicator is a doe one which works nicely. The pigmentation is great and it just needs 2 swipes on my lips. It does not feel heavy on lips at all. The staying power is great and they stay on me for 5-6 hours with drinks/food in between. The only problem might be that it feels a little drying on lips after2-3 hours so I do apply a lip balm underneath to avoid any dryness.


Since it is a matte shade so, always be sure to get rid of any flakiness and scrub lips before using it. The packaging is nice and the tube is the colour of the lip cream itself. The shade name and number are listed below so you can find it easily.

I just wish these were a little more pocket friendly and NYX was available in India. Apart from this I absolutely love these. I will be reviewing the other shade Stockholm soon once I get over with my obsession of this shade.

• Gorgeous nude brown
