My take on NYX Round lipsticks :

I’ve tried 2 shades from this range previously, Louisiana and Tea Rose. The lipstick comes in a rather flimsy though thoughtful packaging. The plastic seems rather cheap and not sturdy at all but at this price I’m not complaining! One end of the tube carries a label with the name of the lipstick while the other end has a colored bit of what looks like wax/plastic- in the same shade as the lipstick which makes it super convenient to locate these.

The texture of the lipstick is very smooth and buttery- most shades give  medium coverage in single swipe which can be built up in 2-3 swipes for opaque coverage. They are quite moisturizing and lips feel smooth post application- they also fill out the fine lines on the lips to an extent to give smoother appearance. Given their buttery texture and moisturization, I wasn’t expecting more than 3 hours of wear from these but they comfortably last on my lips for more than 4 hours. Even upto 6 hours, there is a tint on my lips.

Perhaps the biggest con of these lipsticks is that they melt in hot weather, causing the bullet to break at the base, making application difficult and travelling with it out of question. Apart from that, I find these too good for the price. The shade selection is huge and you can almost find any shade you are looking for. The colors shown of the website may not always be true to the real color so its advisable to check out swatches on blogs and youtube channels before ordering.

The shade B52 :

Its a brownish mauve- pink shade with a creamy finish. It looks more mauve than pink. Its a great shade for everyday wear, appears like a pinky mauve on me, looks good with most outfits. It appears more on the nude side in the FOTD but its deeper than that. Should suit most complexions except maybe very dusky ones.

The GOOD about NYX Round lipstick :

  1. Convenient packaging with colored end for easy location of shades.
  2. Super smooth buttery texture.
  3. Glide easily on lips giving smooth finish.
  4. Fill out fine lines and make lips appear smoother.

  7. Last 4 hours and leave behind an even tint that lasts for 6+ hours.
  8. Available in 144 shades.
  9. Cruelty free.

The NOT-SO-GOOD about NYX Round lipstick :
  1. Packaging is flimsy and dull.
  2. Lipstick tends to melt in hot weather.
  3. Some shades may feather around the lip line after few hours- may need a lip liner with it.
  4. Not easily available in India.
  5. Choosing shades from website swatches can be dicey.

 

This is how it looks on me –

Overall Verdict : NYX Round lipsticks are probably the hottest selling products from NYX and one can see why- super smooth texture, great pigmentation, good hydration and a lasting power of 4+ hours! Even though the packaging is not very sturdy and lipstick tends to feather/bleed sometimes, these are still the best one can get at this price. With a shade selection of 144 shades- everyone can find shades they like though the shades shown on the website can be misleading so its advisable to check out swatches on blogs/youtube channels before taking your pick. The shade being reviewed today B52 is a brownish mauve-pink that gives a creamy, glossy finish of opaque color to the lips that is natural and long lasting.

Highly recommended  everyone to try at least 1 shade from this range.

Rating : considering the price…. 4/5

Will I repurchase : In other shades Yes!

    Nice! I have Milan, and I think that would be a close dupe. I could be wrong though.

      Milan is close I think, B52 has more mauve than Milan though.

    Nooooo…I wanted to see this on you! This is one of those NYX shades I was getting ready to pick up when I instead began to shop higher end brands. But the color looks so lovely in the swatch…oh the temptation!

      I guess it may not flatter pale skin tones. It looks like a natural mauve -brown on me with a hint of pink

    Nyx Lipsticks are so creamy and pigmented that it really annoys me that they are so fragile. ALL of mine melt 🙁

      I know!! 🙁 I picked up Louisiana and Tea Rose few months back- bullet broke at the base in both of them. I guess Indian climate is too hot fr them 😛 Thankfully the recent ones have not broken *yet*
