NYX Round Lipstick in Paris

Ever since I was a kid, I was already fascinated with lipstick. I would watch my mom put on lipstick, and she would instantly look more beautiful! I wanted to try it out myself. I used lip tint and glosses in college because I wanted the natural no-fuss look. After college, I went through the phase of red lipstick, declaring it as my color. (Even now, I still love red lipstick.) I just did not see pink as stunning for my skin tone - and I was mistaken! When I got hold of my very first NYX Round Lipstick in Paris (many thanks to Lady E when I met her at the Hyphen booth), I fell in love with pink all over again. This pink is not your ordinary pink lipstick. I'm a big fan of lipsticks that literally pop against my skin tone. :D

NYX Round Lipstick in Paris

About the Product:

NYX Round Lipstick is our classic lipstick for all-year round. The mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvet texture, saturated color and it resists wear and smudging. It's your go-to lipstick. From Pure Nude to Pink Lyric to Chic Red, Round Lipstick is available in a jaw-dropping 144 shades.

144 shades. LOVE! <3

Paris is a bright blue-based pink lipstick. You can see hints of purple in this shade.

The color on the tube is different when worn on the lips.

I love how Barbie-pink this made my lips look!

  • It is very creamy.
  • It is very pigmented; it can totally cover your real lip color.
  • It is not drying.
  • It does not feel heavy on your lips.
  • Its staying power is average. It leaves a hint of pink tint on your lips even after eating and drinking.
  • Best part of all, it is cheap! :D

  • The color at the bottom of the lipstick packaging is nowhere near its actual shade when worn.
  • It has a mild, artificial scent (which is tolerable).
  • This may make the dry patches/flakes on your lips noticeable. Exfoliate well before using this lipstick.
  • After hours of wear, this settled into my lip lines/wrinkles. Nothing lip balm and a little retouch can't fix!

Would I repurchase? Yes! I'm impressed! I love that it's less than P200.00 but with good quality. It's even better than other more expensive brands. I love the range of colors and the consistency of the lipstick - so creamy!
Price: P170.00
Available at The Hyphen Store.

I so love this shade. What's your favorite product from NYX? :)
