Bright coral lipstick anyone? NYX Round lipstick Femme : Review, Swatch and FOTD

 

 

Hi everyone!

As previewed earlier in my upcoming lipstick/gloss reviews, today I’m reviewing NYX Round lipstick in the shade ‘Femme‘.

Price : $4 (approx. Rs 180-200), I picked it up for $1.99 (approx Rs 100) from cherryculture.com

Sold in the range of Rs 350-450 in India.

Quantity : 4 g

Femme is super bright coral shade with a bit of fuchsia touch to it- in pictures it always looks like a bright coral but in reality it has a pink-ness to it which can be seen when photographed in artificial lighting. It has a glossy finish- does not contain any shimmer. It looks very glamorous- even more glam than red I feel! It instantly brightens up my face and imparts a glow to it.

For detailed review of NYX Round lipsticks, read review HERE.

To summarize what I already said about NYX Round lipsticks in the above mentioned post –

NYX Round lipsticks are super smooth, buttery textured lipsticks that come in both glossy and frosty finishes. They are nicely pigmented, moisturizing, give sheer/medium coverage in one swipe which builds up to full coverage in 2-3 swipes. Last around 3-4 hours on me, while the brighter/darker shades last a little more. Because of their creaminess, they do tend to bleed a little bit. The packaging is a little flimsy and they have a tendency to melt and break because of the very soft texture.

Priced very affordably at around $4-5, these are generally on sale for $1.99 which is less than Rs 100 !! Definitely great value for money but are not easily available in India and if they are, they are priced at Rs 300-400.

Available in 144 shades. View all shades HERE.

      It is a pretty shade! At this price, I’d recommend u get it, you can wear it with only 1 swipe and not to its full intensity if u like 🙂

      You can totally do this! Wear something peachy/gold like Rubenesque on the lids, liquid liner and mascara. And use a golden highlighter on cheeks too! From online swatches I always thought Femme is *almost* orange but I was very happy with the pink touch it has 🙂

    Femme looks quite red on me. A very corally pinky red but red nontheless. xD I wore it to class once and was complimented all day on it. It’s a favorite of mine.

          You’re welcome 🙂 I have Tea Rose but it washes me out. I’ve heard that for most people so kinda regret buying it now! Indian Pink looks a little light to me in swatches, I prefer brighter/darker shades. Also its frosty and I prefer non-frosty lip colors. It has a bad staying power according to online reviews and most people I know prefer using it as a peachy blush rather than a lipstick 😀

      Its a pretty shade 😛 If you can get your hands on this good, otherwise you could check out Maybelline Bronzy Orange though its more coral and almost no pink 🙁

      Ohh not really. Chanel Genial is pinker while this has a lot of warmth and ‘neon-ness’ 🙂
