Swatch & Review : NYX round lipstick

Hello lovelies,

It's swatch and review time!
Nyx is a cosmetic company that provides inexpensive cosmetics. I have used a couple of their products in the past years. For the price, I think they are quite average to good quality makeup. Since I have some lipsticks from them in my stash, I thought of taking the time to swatch them. Here is a quick review on how they wear.

Colour payoff 
 What you see in the tube is what you end up with when applied on lips
 Not very lasting on the lips. You definitely have to reapply after eating, drinking, etc... You can use a lip pencil prior to lipstick application and this helps with the product longevity.
 All of them are very creamy and easy to work with. They don't dry the lips like some Mac lipsticks do.
They have a mild fruity smell. I just can't point my finger at which fruit though.
Price range
 Very affordable. Depending on which seller/store, sometimes you can get them at USD$0.99. Usually they cost around USD$1.25 - $2.50

So here the swatches, I hope someday someone will find this useful!

My favorites are :
Tea rose
Indian pink

Thanks for coming by darlings!

Have a great week!

(PS: It has been nice and sunny in cold Sweden, I hope it stays that way. Spring, I really miss you!)

  8. For that price, I don't care they're not longlasting! Gosh, I want! :D

  9. Ok, I must say, your lips are flawless, I'm jealous. LOL. I agree with you about longevity. I find that NYX and LA colors lipsticks and polish come in awesome colors but lack in durability/lasting effect. Thanks for the swatches!
