I posted details about my Cherry Culture haul last week (you can check it out here) and have now had the chance to try some of the things out.
Out of the 12 items I got, the one I was most sceptical about was the Nyx Round Lipstick in the colour Lala. I saw a really beautiful swatch of it online and wanted to stray away from my usual palette of pinks and reds. However, in person, the colour seemed much darker than I expected. As described before, this is a purple-based pinkish mauve colour.
It definitely earns a unique place in my lipstick collection, but I am unsure how often I will be choosing this, especially considering the cool weather at the moment – when applied, the cool tint makes me look cold. Perhaps I will rock it in the summer for a chic gothic look, or for a twist on the sophisticated plum lip evening look.
Application-wise, this is A*. Everything about the formula is great – moisturising, pigmented, long lasting and no scent! I get more than four hours of wear from this. Since the colour is very strong, it fades into a pretty stain on my lips.
I really am crushing on all my Nyx haul products and can’t believe the quality. I generally prefer to use more expensive items for the sheer indulgent pleasure, but because I invested quite a lot of time researching all my purchase colours and such, I’m getting the same endorphin rush!
Packaging: 6/10 (The plastic feels cheap, but I do like the font and design print, plus the transparent base that shows the colour and the top sticker with the colour name)
Price: 10/10 (£1.50-ish, taking into account of the Nyx sale and currency conversion on Cherry Culture)
Formula: 10/10 (Pigmented, long lasting, moisturising, smooth application, no scent)
Final Verdict: Something that I will definitely repurchase. Perhaps not in this shade, but I’m very impressed with Nyx Round Lipsticks and really want to delve into their extensive colour range on offer.
