My take on the Product

 

The lipstick comes in a nice sturdy grey packaging with a transparent bottom. The packaging is much more luxe and sturdier than the NYX Round lipsticks. The transparent end allows one to see the shade and hence locate it easily when stored upside down.

The lipstick has a lovely creamy texture. Its quite soft but not to the point of melting or crumbling. The buttery texture leaves a lovely creme gloss finish to the lips, diminishes lines giving a plumper, smoother look. It is richly packed with pigment so a single swipe will give full opaque color to the lips. It is quite hydrating and the lips feel soft and moisturized for a long time post application. Since its quite creamy, it may bleed a little and is very prone to transfer. I’d recommend blotting it a little on a tissue to avoid this problem. The pigment is staining but doesn’t settle into lines. This color wore for around 5 hours after which a soft stain stayed for another 3 hours. The best thing about how it wears is that the color doesn’t get patchy or uneven as it fades.

Overall, the formula is very comfortable and rich, feels lovely on the lips though may be prone to transfer/bleeding since its very creamy. The lipstick has a faint, fruit scent which I quite like.

Midnight Dinner is a gorgeous vibrant berry pink color with a hint of plum. The color has no shimmer or pearl, its a cream formula. Its one of those balanced brights – doesn’t look overly catchy yet has enough color to brighten up the face. It would make an excellent pink for duskier beauties. I love the shade and I’d recommend it to everyone!

  1. I haven’t somehow tried NYX lipsticks, but I am a hugw fab of NYX lipglosses, they are super pigmented and can be worn by themselves. and they are quite comparable to NARS lipglosses.

  2. Gorgeous colour!!! The lipstick packaging (besides the lacy print on the cap) and the texture and pigmentation seem very similar to the Bourjois Rouge Edition lipsticks. But those are almost double the price of this NYX lippie.

  3. Gorgeous shade it is & looks lovely on your lips! I love such colours. Have just ordered the Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick in Cutting Edge from Slassy, thanks to you 🙂

  4. This is such a beautiful pink.. I’m dying to own NYX products.. Have been trying to place an order on cherryculture since the past 3 days.. not working 🙁

  5. Lovely Shade, since I am on a self imposed Shopping ban, only appreciating, no buying 🙂 Looks like a darker version of Deborah Milano atomic red shade #19
