When my boyfriend and I went to London back in January last year, it felt like we were in heaven. We both did shopping and both got the chance to buy things that aren't available to us here in Belgium.
My boyfriend's favourite shops to go to were basketball and shoe related stores, mine were - surprise - make-up! I got three NYX lipcreams which I wrote a review on at the time. You can click to read the review here.
However, there were a couple colours that were completely sold out and that I really loved. I don't know how he remembered, but my dad got me some of those colours for me birthday! He was absolutely adorable about it, all of the make-up he got me, he packed seperately, so when he walked in he had a big bag full of gifts.
I got two colours, the nude one is called "Abu Dhabi" and the darker red is called "Rome". You can see the swatches of the two colours in the picture below.
This first lip cream is a nude one. Luckily, it's not too pale and doesn't make you look like you're one of the walking dead.
I thought the "Rome" lip cream would be a very dark red one, but this lip cream turned out to be a little bit darker than the colour of my lips.
It's not extremely dark and can be worn on a daily basis. It isn't too over the top, I'd even wear it to work.
The quality of the lip creams is something that I have discussed in my previous post (that is linked) already.
It's very creamy and is easy to apply - the coverage is thesame everywhere so you don't have to re-apply certain areas which is great. The texture is very smooth and soft.
I hope you enjoyed this post! See you soon!
