Like others have said, this is definitely made for a very light skin tone. I am a nw20 (cool-fair) and I am even borderline for this shade. It is very pale pink, so pale it hard to pull off straight out of the tube. What i have found works best is to use a brush or my fingers and put it on for more subdued look. If I use a natural liner it looks very nude.
I wont be purchasing this again simply because it takes too much effort to use it. The packaging is flimsy, as with all of these lippies from this line, and the formula is drying. I would go with something else similar from Revlon's lustrous line or L'Oreal in their pale pinks.

Oh boy, when I was buying this lipstick I was looking at the color in the tube and thought it looked pretty but its actually a very pale pink color and it looks awful on my skin tone. This is also way to pigmented that it looks cakey on the lips and makes wrinkly or dry, crusty lips look awful. Don't get me wrong I love NYX lipsticks but this color looks horrible on me. On the bright side the lipstick is very creamy.

I am quite pale with eastern Asian skin, and most of the lipsticks I buy tend to look stronger/vibrant then I want them to look on my skin. I often have to layer a foundation lightly underneath on my lips to make them look the way I want them to. I read that lots of paler girls liked this, but this color was not flattering on me. The lightness of the lipstick was all right, and in yellow/artificial lighting it looked nice. However, as soon as I stepped outside or in better lighting I realized the lipstick looked quite garish on me. The color simply had too much blue that in white light it looked very purple on my skin.In the tube, the lipstick is a beautiful pink that does remind me of strawberry milk, but if you have yellow undertones I would stay clear.
Consistency wise, I was also disappointed. Although the lipstick is pigmented, it has an odd finish that is creamy and manages to emphasize dry spots-very strange. I thought this lipstick would have a thinner balm like consistency, but it instead felt more like a heavy cream with too much pigment mixed in. Even when you do apply it perfectly, if you're the type to smack your lips (which I am), the color moves and slips on your lips. I had such high hopes, but I can't imagine who this lipstick would flatter. Perhaps if you are extremely pale with very cool undertones or if you were going for the bold nicki-minaj look it would work. After some deliberation, I returned the lipstick. I am still on the hunt for the perfect pale pink.

Shade description: pale baby pink
Comments: I don't find this shade overly creamy like most others from this line. It's a pale pink that I find easy to wear so long as I have enough color on my cheeks.

I like this color - it's just fun. No, it's not natural at all. But I love that. When I have boring eye makeup, I go for a fun bright lip. If you've purchased and don't like the "fake" look, you could always apply this first with a finger lightly, then apply a more natural shade on top to brighten the color.

this is one of my favorite lipsticks! I was sad to see that it has so many bad reviews. this color only works on a handful of skin tones & colors. I have cool, fair skin which looks great with this lip color. as far as its opaqueness, I use a lip brush with almost all of my lipsticks that helps evenly apply and makes it way more smoothe than cakey.

I love NYX becaus it's affordable and you get a lot of value for your money. I have quite a few of the Round Lipsticks and I purchased most for around $2.00. I'm very impressed by the array of colors that are available and these lipsticks are often "go tos" for me.
Most of the NYX lipsticks are fairly pigmented.
The lids can come off of these lipsticks rather easily and I've had several to easily crack. Additionally, I've had several lipsticks to break. They're still useable, but, they've broken.
As far as quality is concerned, I do think that you get a very pigmented color for your money and and the formula is quite moisturizing.
Strawberry Milk is a nice color. It's a very nude, pink. Looks great with a smokey eye. Rather stark on my lips without a lipgloss, so I usually use a pink or nude gloss.

I fell in love with the color, just by looking at the lipstick.
However, as I applied to my lips, I was horrified. It was opaque, cakey, and looks fake on my lips. Worst of all, my friends commented that I look pale and sick when I had the lipstick on.
I supposed this color is only suitable for those with fairer skin tones.

In contrast to most other reviews, I absolutely love this lipstick, but this is only for a certain group of people.. And I will tell you exactly who this would look best on.
This strawberry milk (literally) color will only work on a select few, you must be fair and cool toned... So that limits this to NW20s and below. if you're any darker or warm/yellow toned, you will look like a stripper. It reminds me of that colored sunblock from the 90s that used to come in a Chapstick tube. I love this lipstick, if you're a fair, cool toned lady who likes pink lips, id definitely suggest this. If you're dark or warmer toned, stay away unless you work at the hustler club.
The consistency is good, the coloring is opaque, and it fades perfectly, no ring around the lips. This is one of 5 lipsticks I've ever used up and repurchased within 6 months, and I own about 60-70 lipsticks and lipglosses. the only other lip product I've ever gone through so quickly is Macs cremesheen fashion scoop... Yeah I love cool toned milky pinks!

Honestly- I don't know how anyone uses these NYX Round Lipsticks. I usually wear high end lipsticks, but I'm not a snob. I enjoy a few drugstore colors from Revlon, Maybelline, and L'Oreal. I also LOVE NYX'S BLACK LABEL LIPSTICKS!
Unfortunately, Strawberry Milk from the Round line is horrible. The consistency is like oil paint. These lipsticks go on so opaquely that they look fake and cakey. In my opinion, the more opaque any lipstick, the less natural it will look. Is it possible to have an opaque lipstick that looks good & natural? Yes, but the more opaque it is, the better the color has to be. I find the Round line- Strawberry Milk especially - are very "fake" and almost childish colors. I don't mean childish as in youthful, I mean it looks like little girl play makeup. The colors are like those you'd see in a Disney Princesses picture book. The consistency is gross. You put the lipstick on and it's greasy. You can feel the coating. It's impossible to stay in your lip line, bc the formula clumps and skips when you apply. It's almost too soft. You know how the paper looks when you color with a Crayola crayon? The colored area is waxy and uneven, not like the smooth, solid color you get from a marker. NYX Round lipsticks are like coloring your mouth with a greasy Crayola. That's the best description I can give.
The color of Strawberry Milk is very pretty in the tube. It just doesn't remotely resemble any color found in nature, and it's so opaque it looks very made-up. Some people like that look. I also think on dark skin, this might be ok. On someone with blond hair and fair skin that's relatively warm like mine, this color looks hideous. I couldn't wear it out of the house without being embarrassed. I'm still experimenting with glosses to see if it can be salvaged. A shimmery nude or gold gloss on top usually solves most bad lipstick purchases for me, but I'm still looking through my collection to find a partner that works with Strawberry Milk.
My advice: if you're over age 21 or lighter than about NC30 - do not buy this.
