Nyx Tinted Lip Spa in Juicy review, swatches

Its been so long I posted a review, no wonder I was feeling quite uneasy. And I felt more uneasy when after staring at my laptop screen for 15mins, I still could not find anything to write. Oh well writer’s block! Does that mean I need a rehab visit? Nooooo!
By the way, I told about VNA to a few friends in my new college and all of them dug deep into its archives
till the wee hours of the morning…..yahooo! Officialy welcoming the new readers here.

The Nyx Tinted Lip Spa in Juicy looks like a bright red in the tube and comes out as a beautiful red on the lips too. For a lip balm, the colour pay off is mind blowing. Its not your apply anywhere even with your eyes closed kinda lip balm. The tint is so strong that you need to excuse yourself to the washroom and then use it! The colour pay off is similar to my Avon Strawberry lip balm. I like my lip balms to have a red tint than pink, suits my medium complexion more.

The lip balm does have a tendency to melt in summers, you can see that in the above picture. As for the moisturisation, its nice. It keeps your lips protected for 3-4 hours. But the tint stays on for longer. Also, it isn’t waxy like your other lip balms. Absolutely non sticky.

Before you jump out to buy it, I just want to warn you about the smell. I think Nyx has got patents over this particular syrup like smell. Its kinda uncomfortable initially but you get used to it!

Below you see the swatches on my hand. The camera could not pick up the colour. Its more deep in person.

So is it for you? Oh yes if you don’t like to wear lipsticks and want a good colour pay off in a lip balm instead. Juicy gives a deep red tint which stays on for quite sometime. The moisturisation is okay and you need to re-apply during the day. It melts in the summers but not like their round lipsticks. Its the smell I don’t like but if you are a regular Nyx user, you already know it!


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?!
