- it has great pigmentation, esp if you have pigmented lips
- it's glossy, if you're a lip gloss girl you may like it
- it has pretty packaging
- it smells like grape bubble gum
- it dries out your lips, so you'll have to put on lip balm first
- it fades out really quick
I believed all the online reviews and bought four tubes of this stuff. The colors are pretty. The formula is creamy. But it definitely does not look as "rich" as high-end lipsticks. It also doesn't last as long--frequent reapplication is necessary. Decent lipstick, at best. You get what you pay for.
These lipsticks are just so amazing! As a nude lip lover, my favorite shades are 'Nude' and 'India'. The formula is so creamy and opaque, I love it. Since I'm quite fair, I find that those 2 shades look more flattering on me when they have a base underneath, but I can't even say how impressed I am with these. Will be repurchasing forever! :)
I have this lipstick in Adore which is purplish to a little bit of pink undertone .It looks so dark and vampy in packaging but on the lips it is very beautiful and I am totally in love with it . it is very creamy dose not dry my lips and the staying power is very decent . I have not try any other shades but hopefully I will because nyx product are not that cheap where I live
I know I'm juvenile but I LOVE the way these smell like grape lollies. Artificial fruit scent, FTW :-)
That said, these are excellent. Smooth, creamy to apply, not too much slip, very pigmented and long lasting with a fairly even fade. They have a very light texture despite their creaminess and feel quite moisturizing, though I am obsessive about my lip balm application so YMMV.
The packaging in bulkier than I'd like, but pretty cute, a metallic charcoal grey tube with an adorable fine black lacy pattern around the lid. The end of the tube has a little plastic covered colour indicator and the top of the tube has the sticker with the name on it, so it doesn't matter which way up you store these, you can always see what colour you want.
Shades so far...
Bling, which is a warm peachy pink nude shade
Diva, a medium neutral mauve with brown tones.
Tea in Afternoon, a deep mauve rose with purple tones.
Cinnamon, a lovely lush gold shimmered red, slightly sheer. A favourite of mine!
Jaipur, a deep plummy wine with light frost.
Midnight Dinner and Socialite are almost identical, both rich red toned berry creams, Socialite is a tad cooler, Midnight Dinner a touch brighter (you don't need both!)
Volcano, gorgeous orange red with light gold shimmer, very wearable.
Sweet Prawn, a vivid yellow based medium pink.
Strawberry Shortcake, a softly frosted baby bubblegum pink.
Hot Tamale, bright coral cream.
Heiress, a very cool lavender pink cream.
Poem, a very cool, blue based lollipop pink.
Rose, medium rich rose pink with lots of silver shimmer.
Dusty Rose, the slightly mauvey almost neutral, MLBB. Also a favourite!
Off The Beaten Path, a vibrant, creamy red toned deep coral.
I paid about $12 or $13NZD from Crush Cosmetics (plus shipping) in Australia and considering even a Revlon or L'Oreal lipstick is easily upwards of $20, these are an absolute steal. Or even cheaper on Cherry Culture, they're about $6US there, which even with the exchange rate and shipping is still really affordable.
These are my favorite lipsticks! It's really reaallllly really good!
They color is very pigmented,good staying power,has a luxurious feel on the lips,moisturizing and lead free. It's very affordable and plain gorgous. You will definitely get your money's worth.
In truth, as much as I love lipsticks,I couldnt bear to wear the Round Lipsticks line because of its flowery scent that makes me gag. This line has a grapey scent that's very nice and no yucky.
I have 4 of these as of now. On my pigmented purplish lips, Here's how it turned out.
NATURAL- A nice shade of rosy brown on me. A bit to brown that I prefer but still good.
BLING- Nude pink
DUSTY ROSE- purply pink
Fairly moisturising and the consistency is creamy and smooth I have this in summer in hampton. It's a girly pink and it's not too over the top as well.
This lipstick was pigmented and creamy, except the creamy feeling only lasted when I first put it on. It dried out my lips in about two hours. The lasting power was okay and the colour was great. The bad part is that if you have slightly chapped lips, this may not be for you.
As I live in Sweden and had to buy it from an online make-up store I had to pay a few dollars extra for shipping, but considering how low the price was to start with (2-3$) I'll be happy to do it again because I'll also be raving about this, just as everyone else are.
I got this in the colour "Orchid" (a purple that's like a pinkblue'ish mix) and the colour is so great with the pigment while it's also very soft on the lip and shiny (no need for lipgloss here!). It can have a tendency to smudge a bit around the lips after a few hours, but I often have this on top of NYX's regular lipstick line's "Almost Black" and with the more matte lipstick as a base this darling ain't going anywhere.
I have only used it for a total of eight times or so, but I am already thinking about what my next BLL-purchase will be...
bought tons of trade items for my studio from NYX distributors in Essex UK. I've been a pro artist for 20 years, worked for Mac back in the beginning. I was totally gob smacked by how much product and colour choice and soooooo cheap. My students who are obviously struggling to build up their make up kit, directed me to NYX, although I had bought products in USA years ago. Dont expect the choice of textures of Mac. but overall a pretty good choice, creamy, nice texture, yes I really liked them ,but with creamy butter texture comes problems of not lasting long. If that is your priority go for the matt shades, maybe a little gloss over in the middle of bottom lip. Best choice of most prooducts of a drug store brand, but you will not find the range in standard stores, they are keeping it to a degree exclusive
