NYX Round Lipstick Review & Swatches


Over the last few months i have accumulated some NYX Round Lipsticks and wanted to share my swatches with you guys!

NYX Round Lipsticks are super affordable and highly pigmented. I find these lipsticks are very creamy and don't dry out my lips.

The packaging is very simple, however my only gripe is that they don't have the lipstick shades on the bottom, they have it on the lid. I had to be very careful not to mix anything up when i was taking pictures!

Louisiana - Blue based pink.
Haute Melon -  Red toned coral.
*Chic - Pale pink.
*Rose - Soft, rosy pink.

NYX offer many different shades and at £4 a pop, you can't resist picking up a few more! These lipsticks are moisturising and very creamy. As you can see, they don't have a complete matte finish to them, but more of a sheen finish.

I do find that the lasting power isn't the greatest, especially when you are eating or drinking. I think the maximum wear time is about 2.5-3 hours. I also find it frustrating that you can only purchase these online, and you have to rely on swatches online in order to get an understanding of the shades.

Overall, i do like them and they are a lot cheaper than some of the drugstore lipsticks that you can pick up in Boots or Superdrug. Due to the lipsticks being so creamy, it is very easy to mix them in order to get a custom shade. 

NYX Round Lipsticks are £4 and can be purchased online HERE.
