Sigh...MUA has really dropped the ball on correctly categorizing these reviews. I can't really do anything within my power to correct this so I'll just be as specific as possible.
I am reviewing the NYX Round Case lipsticks.
I did not like the butter lipstick line, the liquid lipstick line, the black label lipstick line........it seems like every NYX lip product with the exception of these (round case) and the butter glosses dry my lips out.
I have bought a ton of lipsticks in the past year as I began to give lipstick a chance and sent glosses to the back burner. Originally I figured ALL lipsticks must dry me out, but that simply isn't true. Some are balmy & moisturizing, like these!
I own the following shades:
-Pure Nude: Very light warm peach.
-Strawberry milk: Very light, cool toned milky pink.
-Femme: Pinkish red
-Stella: Yellow pink
-Fig: Medium nuetral midtone pink
Pure Nude and Strawberry Milk are my favorite shades as I am a pale NC10. I would recommend any of them though.
The formulas are very pigmented and buttery. I do not need to wear chapstick under these and I have chronically dry lips. Some have even complained that these have "too much slip", but that's far from being a negative in my book. The more moisturizing, the better.
Word of advice - do not trust NYX's website for the descriptions 100%. Unfortunately Stella & Femme have micro-glitter in them despite being advertised as cream formulas. Fig, Strawberry Milk, and Pure Nude are true cream formulas.

ROUND: So creamy and light with better staying power than I expected. Apollo is frosted orange red that really flatters. Twist is lighter and a bit more orange. Saturn is pinker. I've ordered more colours and will update. I've tried over ELF's lip primer, which is okay but not great.

I love these lipsticks. Some of the shades are outrageous but whatever floats your boat I guess.
I do wish they would last longer on the lips but they do look beautiful. I will never spend more on a lipstick again.

So far I've tried NYX Macaroon Lippies, NYX Matte lipstick, NYX Round Case lipstick, & NYX Matte Lipcream. I absolutely love the Macaroon Lippies-they come in such fun colors, have great pigmentation, apply smoothly, & have no scent, which is very important to me. Same for the Matte lipstick, though I would consider their finishes more of a satin than a true matte. The Round Case however, I couldn't stand the smell. And it wasn't even like one of those things where after a little while you stop noticing it, after removing it I could still smell it for hours, & it's a very fake perfumey smell, very unpleasant. I just couldn't stand it. And it's ashame because other than that it went on smoothly & had great pigmentation, but I just couldn't take that smell. The Matte Lip Creams have a somewhat strong smell as well. Not as bad as the Round Case, but still enough that it bothered me.

I purchased the lipstick in "Stella". Not impressed. Feels a bit grainy, transfers easily, gets everywhere. The color is pigminted, but for me, this was not comparable to the ELF 1 dollar lipsticks at all.

Nice colors, very pigmented and in a reasonable price

I am exploring the wonders of drugstore lipstick, there are some wonderful ones out there. I am in Europe and the hype of these lipsticks made me think worth trying. So for me, these turned out a bit more expensive than just their nominal price.
And they are OK, but just OK.
- the range of colors is fantastic. Incredible, literally hundreds of colors. This is what might make this a rebuy.
- the colors I selected are pretty.
- I like very much the original bullet shape - with a tiny little curve. Classy and precise.
- I like the weight and how well the packaging closes. But more on that.
The not so good:
- itīs fades pretty fast. It applies kind of slippy anyway, and even without being very moisturizing, the more mid-tone colors do not last past one hour. (The red leaves a stain for longer, but it does not really look intact or even very nice past that first hour or so).
- the packaging is very nice from one angle but just one angle. Lots of information, and ugly white code bar printed direct on the lipstick case, which looks cluttered and just not classy. I wish they had put it on a removable sticker, like a lot of companies do. Compared for example with the packaging of Essence or Catrice lipsticks which cost around the same, itīs disappointing.
- made in China. I try to avoid putting on my mouth or near eyes anything made in China. Just in case.

It's great how cheap it is and it's really pigmented to thumbs up for that. Only down fall is it doesn't stay on and goes like on my teeth and transfers. I have the bright red one. It's also great as a blush because of how pigmented it is it looks so natural.

I love how NYX lippies are so inexpensive, but not at all cheap! Gorgeous colours and most I have tried are long lasting. My favourite colour from the range is Snow White.

I have to say as a huge fan of all NYX products... A few months ago I was shopping for some spring/summer make up and instantly fell in love with a round lipstick from Nyx called "Stella"... Its a gorgeous bright coral pink color with a tiny bit of shimmer.... The color is almost exact to MACs "impassioned"... This lipstick only costs around $3 too which makes these lipsticks soo addictive to buy! The color payoff is unreal and in a four hour period i reapplied once... Not sticky and looks great with gloss over it... Overall my new favorite color for spring/summer 2013!
