Nyx Round Lipstick Fire: Review, Swatches and LOTD


A year before I started writing this blog all the lipsticks I had in my kitty were shades of brown. Till about recently I never had the guts to buy a pink lipstick, forget about putting it on me. I never understood the fascination for pink lipsticks. However since the day I became a crazy makeup fanatic and started exploring blogs by some amazing people like Rashmi, Samyukta, Anamika and Cynthia, I have started buying more colorful lip sticks. Of course I will never be adventurous enough to buy a black or dark purple lipstick but this is a start at least. I love Nyx round lipsticks. They are soft , creamy, extremely moisturizing and have excellent colors at a reasonable price. In short they are a boon for people like me who want to experiment with colors but are unwilling to dish out a fortune a lipstick that they will never use.

Nyx lipstick in Fire is a beautiful deep pink red shade. The shade just instantly brightens your face and adds a touch of drama which I love. I have been hunting for this shade since I saw Mac Fusion Pink which is again a gorgeous red pink but one which I was unable to buy (It’s a LE pro lipstick). The best part is that it is completely opaque and thus great for my pigmented lips. I love it on my lips and am sure this is going to be my new party lipstick J



                    
Ok, now this lipstick is not a Mac lipstick and should not be compared to one. Yes, it is creamy, soft and glides on like a dream on my chapped lips but then it has a few cons as well. Firstly it transfers and transfers to just about everything around you. Moreover it has a negligible staying power of just around two hours. However I don’t really mind that the texture and pigmentation is extremely good and what more can you expect for around three hundred bucks. Thankfully it does not smell extremely weird. It just a slight waxy smell which is ok.

You can buy it from Cherry Culture or just order it from Stylecraze which incidentally is running a 25% off sale on Nyx products and this lippi is on the list as well.
