NYX Round Lipstick

Today I'm going to do a review today on the NYX Round Lipsticks! I have 12 different shades so let's just get into it! :) Let's go ahead and look at the swatches! These are pretty true to how they look in real like by I'll go one by one and try to describe the colors to the best of my ability!

NYX Round Lipstick Swatches

(From left to right) Athena, Cinnamon Sugar, Chambord, Heredes, Margarita, Vitamin, Femme, Watermelon, Peach, Gardenia, Hebe, Saturn

Athena: HOLY CRAP. This color is light! I would never wear this color personally because it's a super light pink. It is a very frosty color and has white/light pink shimmer to it. 

Cinnamon Sugar: This color is very...brown. I think it would like nice on people with a darker skin tone because it would almost come out to a nude. But this color actually doesn't look that bad on me with a lip gloss on top. I just don't reach for it very often. It does have shimmer and light glitter in it. 

Chambord: This is a nice bronze-y color. Again, it does need a gloss on top to me it most wearable. Not a color I reach for very often though. It does have light copper-y shimmer. 

Heredes: This color is a dark brown-y peach color. This one has no shimmer and it very opaque!

Margarita: This is an ultra-shimmery medium peachy/pink color. This one has a ton of shimmer and light glitter in it!

Vitamin: This is a lighter peach-y color. Again, it has a ton of shimmer and gold glitter to it. It does have a slight gold undertone. 

Femme: I actually kind of like this color because it's just so SHOCKINGLY pink. It is literally a neon pink and it's a fun going out lipstick. Not for the faint at heart! Also, there's no shimmer, just pure color.

Watermelon: This is a copper-y bronze/orange-y color. It has a gold undertone again. There is shimmer/frost to this lipstick.

Peach: This color is not a peach color. haha. It's a nice maroon color with silver/pink shimmer. It's very interesting and a color I would wear. This is a very frosty color. 

Gardenia: A nice shimmer-y red color with pink glitter. This color is very similar to peach!

Hebe: A darker red shimmery color. This has a maroon frost to it. 

Saturn: This color is very similar to Hebe. The only difference is this color has a little bit more of a bronze tone to it!

Conclusion: I'm honestly not crazy about these lipsticks. I just don't care for the formula. They're really slippery and messy. I feel like they're going to smudge all over my face when I wear these. Also, the colors I have are almost all frosty, and I don't care for frosty lipsticks. Yes, NYX does have a lot of other lipsticks that don't have any shimmer, but I ordered these blindly online so I didn't really know what to expect.  

But Morgan... is it worth the money?

The Beauty Breakdown Don't Buy it Honestly, no. Yes, they're cheap. I believe they're around 3-4 dollars at Ulta. But I feel like it would be a better idea to spend a couple dollars more and get a nicer lipstick!
