One for the pale skinned ladies09:00
It's no secret that I'm a little bit obsessed with NYX at the moment. Recently I went to my second local boots and found a rare sight...an almost untouched NYX stand. I squealed with delight and went straight over while my boyfriend rolled his eyes and waited patiently.
One item that I noticed was this soft matte lip cream in the shade Cairo. It's a really pale nude, and I thought it would be great for my pale skin.
As you can see from the above picture, it's a really good nude for the pale skin. It really sinks in to my skin tone and looks really great. I'm really excited to try a 60's inspired look with this as I think it would be great paired with quite a dramatic eye.
Unfortunately the shade isn't brilliant close up, and can look quite patchy. To stop this happening, I make sure my lips are exfoliated and apply thin layers rather than just straight in as this can make it look a bit gloopy on the lips.
I think I'll be getting quite a few wears out of this, especially if I just want a really nude look for a casual day, and the nyx lip creams are so easy to apply so I can imagine this will be great on the go as well.
If you are lucky enough to find this, as I know quite a few stands are bare then you can find it online here.
What do you think of Cairo? Would you be interested in purchasing it?
