Tried and Tested: NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Pink Lyric review

Hey Guys!

I hope you are well, apart from this gloomy weather!

Today I wanted to brighten your day with a review on one of my bright pink lipsticks, the NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Pink Lyric.

I got this lipstick when I was at IMATS last June, at quite a bargain since it was apparently a never used old tester so yay!

The lipstick is a bubblegum pink lipstick which is a Mineral- Based creamy lipstick with a velvet finish to it. Applicaiton wise, the lipstick is very easy to use and quite pigmented. Although the lipstick has a creamy texture, the finish itself is neither glossy or matt.

The product comes in a sleek black tube and contains 4g/ 0.14 oz of product.

In order to test out the longevity of the product, I wore it for a whole day approximately 12 hours since I had a meeting right after work. I did not touch up the lipstick in order to get a better result. I was quite impressed at how the lipstick performed. Not only did the colour remain constant throughout the day but the pigmentation of the lipstick was quite phenomenal, as you can see from the middle picture which was approximately 4 hours after application, the application stayed nearly the same as the morning. Apart from that, this lipstick was rigorously tested since I eat quite frequently throughout the day and drink lots of water and tea!

Unfortunately I cannot remember the actual price of the product, however, I bought it for around 2-3 sterling, that being said, it was a tester therefore it was lower in price. 

All in all, I really loved this product, I really like this sort of finish, however, I know that there are many who prefer either a glossy/ shine lipstick or matt lipstick, however, I think it is a healthy medium.

You can now get NYX lipsticks at the new NYX store in Sliema, check out my post on the opening of the store:

Until next time!
