Nyx Round Lipstick Frappuccino Review, Swatches, LOTD
You remember those math quadratic equations which can only be solved by the Hit & Trial method. You keep putting in random values for x until you hit the jackpot. Its the same with nude lipsticks. You keep buying different nudes and continue breaking your bank until you get THAT perfect nude. So by the end you get a close match (forget perfect), you already have a dozen lying waste in your vanity. Fear not because here comes you math genius (not really…I’m still surprised how I got through all those math tests).

Nyx Round Lipstick Frappuccino Review, Swatches

NYX Claims: NYX Round Lipstick is our classic lipstick for all-year round. The mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvet texture, saturated color and it resists wear and smudging. It’s your go-to lipstick. From Pure Nude to Pink Lyric to Chic Red, Round Lipstick is available in a jaw-dropping 144 shades.

Nyx Frappuccino is a beige nude lipstick with peach undertonesThe colour pay off is great and goes opaque in one single swipe. I’ve too many nudes with brown tones then there are some with pink tones but this one is a first. Its the kind of nude that will flatter fair to medium skin tones. I guess if you are above nc42 then it will wash you out a bit. If you are darker than this then you carry it with smokey eyes.

When I was first tried this I was over the moon on finding THE nude lipstick I was searching for ages..literally. But then my heart was broken into pieces. Its the quality I’m talking about. These are so soft that they melt like butter in the tube. So I kept it in the fridge but then its so creamy and buttery that it is difficult to achieve a perfect finish on lips. Most of the times it goes streaky and you need to use a lip brush. Also it bleeds so you need a lip liner with it. I like applying lipsticks straight from the bullet so most of the times I just skip using this.

It doesn’t dry your lips since it is very creamy. Because of this the lasting power is not that great. It stays on my lips for barely 2-3hrs and doesn’t leave a stain behind. I wish they improve the formula since the round lipsticks have some of the coolest shades in the market. They have like 144 shades..beat that!

I’m also wearing it in THIS look.

Price: Rs.320 ($4 internationally) It is always sold out on healthkart, stylecraze, urbantouch.

So is it for you? Yes if you want a nude lipstick that is not brown not pink not mlbb but NUDE. It will suit fair to medium skin better than those who are nc42 and above. The colours is so perfect that I so want to recommend this but it is so creamy that it melts in the tube and goes streaky on lips. You need to have patience with it. But at $4 what do you expect?!


Move over Soft Matte Lip Creams, because now we have Xtreme Lip Creams. Sounds like Akshay Kumar in Fear Factor Extreme: “ab aur bhi zyada khatarnaak“. Btw I like that show because it gets “aur bhi zyada khatarnaak” with every season? Naah! Because I like to see Akshay perform stunts. It starts in June every year..but no signs yet.

Nyx Claims: Beautify your lips with this velvety rich lip cream that provides extreme pigmentation and a silky finish. This lip cream is the combination of lipstick and lip gloss with supernatural lasting strength. Intensify your look with the Extreme Lip Cream in any of the 13 vivid colors.

The colour is very rightly named – Skin Tone. Its a warm peach nude shade with enough of brown to suit the medium skin tones and just the right amount of peach to turn into a nude but without any washing out abilities. I can safely say it is by far my FAVOURITE nude lip colour. Some of the nudes I’ve are too brown that they look coffee, some are too peach that they wash out but this one is just perfect! If Nyx Frapuccino washes you out, then you must try this one out. And no it doesn’t look like my skin tone..puhleez! Skin = nude, right? If you are on fairer side, it will look a warm toffee colour but if you are anywhere near my nc37 skin tone, skin tone will suit you perfectly. I made a gamble when I ordered this online. I was afraid it would be too light for my skin but seems I’m lucky wen it comes to online shopping!
Quality, Texture, Longevity, others:
On pigmentation front, it is loaded. Below you see only one swipe and see how the colour matches the tube. The texture is creamy but not glossy, like a molten lipstick. Needless to say, its non-sticky. And lasts for 6+ hours without meals.
Nyx Soft Matte Creams v/s Nyx Xtreme Lip Creams:
The finish of Xtreme Lip Creams is better than the Soft Matte Creams since those look patchy when layered and make your lips look dehydrated at the end of the day but these on the hand never look patchy, can be layered and are super creamy. Soft Matte Creams need well exfoliated, primed and moisturized lips but these are anti-high maintenance! I prefer these over the Soft Creams since those are little difficult to work with.
Much has been written about how these smell…bit plasticy. I almost puked when I first smelled the Nyx Round Lipgloss but these are less plasticy than the lip glosses. But still Nyx NEEDS to work on its trademark fragrance. If you have been using Nyx from a long time, you probably would not even notice the smell..like me!

Its available in 13 shades: I’m sure getting Buttery Nude and Pinky Nude. The rest are all too pink or too red or too nude for me.

Let’s look at the swatches:

*Sorry forgot the lip swatch. I will put it up later*

Price: $6
(these are newly launched, so I believe these are not on Indian shopping websites but you can get them through b2nshop.com or beautyjoint.com. I HATE cherryculture, no sign of my 6 months old package..uggh!)

So is it for you? Yes I recommend it to all the medium dusky girls who are sick of searching for their perfect nude. This one will suit Indian skin tones without washing them out. The formula is like a liquid lipstick, so expect the pigmentation of a lipstick but tube, doe foot applicator, ease of a lip gloss. I like them better than the Soft Matte Lip Creams.
