Nyx Round Lipstick – Hero

Who is the ‘Hero’ of “Makeup’?? I think its a lip color, it changes the entire look dramatically !! These bright lipsticks have indeed lightened up my face during my recent trips when my skin had tanned …

So how can I not pick up the one which has been named ‘Hero” ..

Nyx Round Lipstick – HERO Rs-300 (Purchased during discounts), from Mumbai Beauty Center..

HERO is a deep red shade, which is on the thin line between Red & Maroon shade.. I absolutely adore this shade. Its somewhat brighter then Sleek True Color Lipstick in Cherry  and looks absolutely stunning once applied.

The formula is smooth and glides on like butter. Staying power, Since its a creamy shade, it doesn’t stay on longer than 4 hours.

Pigmentation is great, one swipe delivers good color. I apply it with Lip brush and don’t have to keep on applying to get desired coverage.

In below pic I have swatched once, you can see the pigmentation yourself.

This lip color neither dry out lips nor settles in fine lines. If you have dry lips you are going to love it ..

The only concern is not all the shades are available Nyx Round Lipsticks + they are pricier in India. You can buy these from Cherryculture.com for $ 2.5

That’s how it looks on me

Overall Thoughts 

If you love Red, its a must have for you. Nyx Round lipsticks are worth spending money, if they are available near you. The swatches available online are not similar to actual shade so swatching a shade before buying is strongly recommended. Girls with dry or lips with fine lines going to love it.

    I don’t usually wear red lippies, but I would love to try this one! The pigmentation and its color looks really stunning!
    And I agree with you, lipstick can change the whole look.
