Black cherry look with NYX Round lipstick Hero : A red lips FOTD and makeup breakdown

 

 

Hi everyone!

Its been some time did a full FOTD with makeup breakdown so today I’m doing a red lips look with NYX round lipstick ‘Hero’. NYX Round lipstick ‘Hero’ is an intense cherry red shade with a glossy finish which is very richly pigmented. I’ve paired this lipstick with a medium plummy taupe eye shadow and thick liner with a reddish-pink stain on the cheeks- the main focus of the look is the intense lip and the strong thick black liner, hence the name ‘Black Cherry’!

Summary of the look :

On a well moisturized face, conceal required areas. Apply a reddish pink cheek stain on the apples of the cheeks and blend well. Follow up with foundation on the face and neck and set with powder. (Alternatively , you can use a powder/cream blush over foundation). For the eyes, apply a grey/taupe eye shadow all over lid and soften at the crease, apply black liner on the upper lash line making a thick line, line waterline lightly just to define and finish off with mascara. Lastly, apply the red lipstick using a lip brush for good precision.

          Colors tend to look warm on her I’ve noticed. But this shade is definitely cool toned. It gives a very pretty berry stain to the lips!

      The garnier roll on is working good for me..even though the color is not a close match to my skin tone, it does give a light coverage that stays all day. I’ve been using it everyday since some time too 🙂

      Ohh the ‘light’ that u see on the packaging is part of the name of the product. The shade I got is Medium. Even that looks a bit light on me but i use less of it to make it work. The good part is, it lasts all day, doesn’t get patchy or dry!

    The lipstick looks dark in the tube but quite flattering when worn on the lips. Sorry for being completely off topic. I was reading the Chambor compact review. Does RR5 have yellow undertones in them? Have you tried revlon compact and how would you compare the two? Any other reccomendations for compacts?

      Hi Esha, Yes RR5 does have yellow undertones. No I’ve not tried the Revlon compact so can’t compare but I’ve heard very good reviews about Revlon touch and glow.

    I just recently started binging on red lipsticks and I haven’t even considered Hero! I feel awful for that now – it’s beautiful.

    Very retro…what clothes did you match this with? It looks like a rich, creamy shade.The rimmel I had was a similar colour.

      Thanks 🙂 Ya it is creamy and pigmented, more than the other NYX lipsticks. I paired a black knee length satin dress with a lacy bodice, wore a shrug over it (The sleeves of which may be visible here). Was the Rimmel one in the same finish?

        Oh fab. Would love to see the full photo :). Yeah the rimmel was very creamy.

      Its a very pretty shade Banani. Its a little difficult to capture in pics, I need to apply a lot of it for it to show. I’ll review it soon and then you can decide.

  15. August 30, 2011 / 11:43 am

    ‘Hero’ surely looks sexy on you Ankita and this looks a red carpet look. 🙂
