NYX Round Lipsticks Part 3: Swatches, Comparisons
The NYX Round Lipsticks are extremely pigmented, creamy, inexpensive lipsticks. They retail for $4 each at nyxcosmetics.com, cherryculture.com (Cherry Culture has a lot of sales!), or even cheaper on Ebay. Their color selection is unparalleled in the low end and high end departments.
Harmonica is a light pink frost. This applies very patchy. Marrakesh Pink is a light peach pink satin/cream. It's rather drying and accentuates flaws. Strawberry Milk is a cotton candy pink frost. It's not as frosty as Harmonica and applies better. Pure Nude is a peach satin/cream. Love the color; hate the finish and wear. Pumpkin Pie is a neutral orange peach cream. It's a dupe for MAC Shy Girl. Tea Rose is a medium rose cream. Very pigmented and creamy. Fig is a pinker, brighter version of Tea Rose.
My favorites from this batch are Pumpkin Pie, Tea Rose, and Fig.
