NYX round lipstick review

Another overdue review lol. Picked up 3 NYX round lipstick's at DonKi (Don Quijote) in Oahu for only 99 cents yay :D Gave two to my mom and kept one in "Pecan Pie." I lovelovelove NYX lipstick (and I am NOT a lipstick user). However, I haven't even attempted to order lipstick from their website since their swatches are NOTHING like the actual color :/ I got B52 for my mom online and the color looks absolutely nothing like the swatch blehhh.

NYX Round Lipstick

Price (online): $3.50

What they say: This is a velvet textured lip cream that covers with rich colors while moisturizing your lips with each application.

Ingredients: Ceresin Wax, Polyethlene Wax, Microcrystalline Wax, Beeswax, Lanoline Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Mineral Oils, Octyl Palmitate, BHA, Propyl Paraben, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, D&C Red No.A1 Lake, Pearl Powder, Iron Oxide.

The good stuff:
  • Relatively inexpensive
  • Smooth and moisturizing NOT sticky
  • Glides on effortlessly
  • Doesn't dry out my lips
  • Rich, pigmented shades
  • Pretty long-lasting
  • Cruelty free

The low-down:

  • I doubt I'll ever find them for 99 cents again! :(
  • Did settle into my lip lines a bit.

My take: The Pecan Pie shade does this LOVELY nude lip for me... I just LOVE it :D And it goes well with my hair color now lol. Like I mentioned all the good points, I barely have anything bad to say about their lipstick besides that it did settle into my lip lines after a few hours and didn't last all day, but a relatively long time without becoming dry. The color is so rich that I use my Avon rollerball gloss over it to tone it down a bit... makes it the perfect shade. This lipstick is definitely worth it - if only NYX's swatches were more accurate!

Everyday nude lip
Base: EDM Natural lipgloss in Lemon Spice
Lipstick: NYX round lipstick in Pecan pie
Lipgloss: Avon Colortrend rollerball lipgloss in Watermelon
