NYX Round Lipsticks - Review & Swatches

These were among the first lipsticks I ever bought. They kind of fell to the back of my collection as I started buying more expensive lipsticks, but I've recently started to whip them out again.

They're really cheap and great if you want to try a bunch of different colours. But the formula for most of them (particularly the cream finish ones), I find quite difficult to work with compared to other lipsticks. They are really pigmented and creamy but go on quite thick, almost cakey, if you apply them in a normal swiping motion. I think they work best if you wear a lip balm underneath and apply the lipstick in a dabbing motion to build up the colour.

Here are the colours I own:

(From left to right)
Pumpkin Pie - Peachy nude with slight gold shimmer
Frappucino - Neutral pinky brown
Milan - Mauve
Tea Rose - Medium pink
Indian Pink - Pinky peach with gold shimmer
Fig - Bright medium pink
Doll - Pinky raspberry
Rose Bud - Cool pink with gold glitter; the glitter feels gritty.
Rose - Bright pinky coral with pink shimmer

My current favourites are probably Doll and Rose.  But when I first bought these years back, Tea Rose was my most used shade.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I've tried Pumpkin Pie and Tea Rose and would love to collect the others. I will try your tip on wearing a balm underneath and patting them on...I noticed that while they are creamy, they definitely settle into the lines of my lips. Might also try wearing a lip primer.

    1. Yeah I noticed them settling too. I might need to get my hands on some lip primer as well, great idea. x
