I haven't tried any products from NYX Cosmetics until these two. It is a drugstore brand so, no high hopes at all. I got two from their Round Lipstick line which offers over 150 shades. It's been in the market for so long, raved and loved by many! I got these on sale at a bazaar last month, Kering Keri Store Bazaar Haul.
I have Tea Rose and Iced Honey but I'm going to start with this. I just trusted my instinct in choosing Iced Honey, random pick in short. No swatch or anything except the sample shade at the bottom which is pretty accurate. It's a frosty pinkish nude shade.
It has a super creamy and moisturizing satin texture. It glides effortlessly but because of its texture, it also smudge easily. I should have known that frosty lippies aren't really my thing.
It has a soapy-like smell which I hate about this. It's tolerable but I just really find it disturbing.
Nothing fancy about its packaging, just a plastic tube. Take note that it is well-labeled like the shade name, code, weight and` ingredients. If you're wondering if it's Paraben-free, yes it is! However, it has Fragrance which may cause skin irritation.
I believe, you cannot really expect a creamy lippy to be a long-wearing one. It only takes 3 to 4 hours, without eating/drinking.
Given that it is a nude color and waxy, the pigment is still pretty good. You may wear this even in just one glide. Probably just to add shimmer. You might look odd if applied too much, at least based on my experience.
Price: P100 (SALE!)
Where: Fisher Mall Bazaar
One of the reasons why I bought this, very affordable.
It gives good coverage even in just one swipe.
It is available online and NYX Cosmetics Store
I like the hassle-free application.
It has soapy smell. It would be better if it's fragrance-free
It is too creamy and even transfer/ smudge so easily.
It is not like I ate this but when I bit my lips, it also taste like a soap. Maybe just because of the scent?
OverallThis one is okay considering its price. Nothing special, just okay. It's not like I'm expecting gold for a hundred pesos. Though, it makes me look like sick or something every time I put too much. Thus, I'd rather put this as second layer on a different shade. I think this is good as a shimmer or gloss.
Would I buy this again? Nah, I don't think so. At least this shade since I like to try other NYX Round lipsticks.
I'll put the link of the second part as soon as I've finished my Tea Rose review.
Thank you for reading!<3
