I usually stick to a nvde-lip everyday so I reach for Abu Dubai, Stockholm, or London. I also line my lips with NYX Lipliner in either Natural or Peekaboo Neutral. The results: a muted rose, nvde lippy!
The lip product has a fragrance that a lot of people love - vanilla/cake batter; but this doesn't last for long and usually goes away in 1 to 2 minutes. These aren't transfer or smudge proof, so do be careful! The longwear for this without eating/light drinking is about 6 hours, with a nice stain (for the more opaque ones); but there is a possibility that you may need to reapply to the corners of the mouth and the inner part (this was the case for me when I wore Monte Carlo).
There are reviews below that say you can build this product up to the level of opaqueness you want to achieve, but I don't recommend doing that. In my experience with this lip product I found that attempting to build up the color would only swipe away the previous product already on my lips. If I wait for the first layer to dry and then applying a second coat, it would sit on top of the first coat. I also found that trying to layer the product resulted in an unflattering look - dry lips with product.
I don't think the formula is consistent across the board, I found that some of the colors in the line would sink into my fine lines (the more opaque ones, but not all of them).
Despite everything, I 100% recommend this product to anyone who asks.
I have always been a huge fan of NYX because not only do they make affordable products, but they make products that compete with their higher end versions.
CON: And I do only really have one, the lids to break easy and can smush down on to the eyeliner, but that's not a huge deal as long as you are careful.
Update! I was able to get Stone Fox on a sale and it is glorious! I get a lot of attention when I wear it. It looks gray in full light but in different light angles make it appear as different shades of blue. I have also fallen asleep wearing it on accident and nearly none of it came off of my lips and to my surprise, my white sheets weren't stained. I have also discovered that if I need it to go on even smoothr (for days with chapped lips or cracks) a thin coat of lip balm underneath does wonders and doesn't effect the color and it still dries matte. I wish I had gotten more on sale, I want this whole collection. I'm eyeing the purple next.
