Nyx Round Lipstick in Pink Lyric

Nyx Round Lipsticks are a cult fave among beauty bloggers. They've been on my wish list for the longest time, but they are not widely available (at least, not where I shop) and  I haven't shopped online in ages. I finally got my hands on some, thanks to the recent Philippine Cosmetics Expo held in SM Megamall. It was so exciting to see the Digital Traincase booth.
Nyx Pink Lyric


Product Code: LSS 535A
Pink Lyric is one of the newer shades of the Round Lipsticks.  It's a lovely bright pink. It looks shocking in the tube but is actually quite ladylike and wearable in real life.

Likes:

- So affordable! They cost PHP 150 at the Digital Traincase booth.

- There are so many shades to choose from. (Over 100 and counting) And they come in a variety of finishes.

- Cruelty-free!

Dislikes:


- Staying power is so-so. Disappears after like, an hour.
- some ingredient might be a turn-off for some.

- kind of gets mushy and melty in our climate.

- Mostly available online. There are lots of wonderful online sellers and they can be spotted from time to time at bazaars and stuff, but that doesn't for my buying style (I like to buy a few items at a time, but frequently so I would lose out on shipping costs.)

Etc.

- there's a distinct soapy/mediciney smell that a lot of people complain about. It doesn't really bother me because there's no taste.

- It's not hard to see why these are so popular. I'm definitely planning to get more.

  1. Paris is my favorite shade, although it has a soapy scent to it, it's tolerable. :)

  5. @Helen: Yay! I have Paris, too. It's very similar but more muted than Pink Lyric. =)

    @Genn: Wow! You go, girl. Louisiana is such a bold, beautiful color.

    @aringkingking: I'll see what I can do. Maybe next post. ^^

    @Shopn'Chomp: I like their glosses, too.

    @Diane: I agree, it's really pretty. But I think it's always OOS because it's so popular. =))

    Thanks for the recommendations. Pink lippies rock!
