Nyx Round Lipstick Review & Swatches


Being a lipstick lover, I had to give Nyx Round Lipsticks a try. We all know they're damn cheap and come in a multitude of colors. Encased in black shiny tubes with individual colored bottoms (erm...bases? lol), I think they're really cute.


(L-R) Penelope, Doll, Tea Rose

I've  just got 3 shades ~ Penelope, Doll & Tea Rose. All nice colors and they are very moisturizing. Really soften my lips. But I don't like the texture very much. I find them too soft and buttery. I'm not a fan of the "plastic-ky" scent either. The first time I applied one of these, I felt kinda sickly. Maybe it's the mineral oil? I'm not saying they smell bad, in fact now I don't mind it anymore. Also, Nyx says "non-smudging", but hell, they do smudge! 
I think they're good for the price, but they're definitely not comparable to MAC lipsticks.

Buy again? I doubt it, but if I need unusual lip colors that I wouldn't use much, like black and other crazy shades, then Nyx Round Lipsticks are the way to go.


Swatches...

Tea Rose ~ Light peachy-pink


Doll ~ A reddish pink


Penelope ~ Black. Yes, I do need a black lipstick! =D

  11. I totally need a black lipstick! Obviously I wouldn't wear it straight by itself, but it'd be so great to have to just layer over lipstick and darken up the lips!

  19. I have a black lipstick and I mix it on the back of my hand with other lipsticks which are too light for me and it really works in making the colour more friendly for my skintone.

  23. Thank you!! This was so helpful. I always look for blog swatches before I buy and I've never bought NYX before. This was so much more helpful than arm swatches. Thanks and I love your blog! :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
