NYX Round Lipstick // Fire, Stella and Haute Melon Review and Swatches

First up all the way from lovely Texas are my current favourite lipsticks - the NYX Round Lipsticks! I picked up a few of these from ULTA as they were on offer and after some extreme couponing I got a pretty good deal [as if they weren't cheap enough already!]  Sadly they didn't really have the shades I was looking for so instead I just picked out whatever looked good to me at the time :)

Fire is a beautiful rich deep pink which I first thought was red.. silly me! Haute Melon [what is up with this name?] is a bright corally orange colour and Stella is a rosy pink colour with glitter... you can probably tell by now that I'm not great at describing colours ;)

I adore the formula of these lipsticks, they're so smooth and creamy to apply even on my dry[ish] lips. Stella however is quite gritty because of the glitter, so it tends to apply more patchier which I'm not too keen on :(

The pigmentation is amazing - especially Fire.. you literally need one coat and you're set for hours. I wore this at Prom and it lasted most of the night even though I was eating and drinking throughout, and it faded to a really pretty pink tint. Stella and Haute Melon are also equally pigmented but for me instead of fading nicely like Fire they just kind of disappeared after a while..

The only slight *actually pretty big* problem I have with these lippies is that they transfer onto pretty much everything. Like I mean everything - I've been finding bits of lipstick on my clothes, all over mugs and glasses, my teeth [awks], on my food.. everywhere?! So these probably aren't the best to wear before a meal unless you want it all over your face... ;)

Overall though for $3.99 / £4.00 I can't complain and it hasn't stopped me wearing them nearly everyday since buying them :)


  1. These shades look amazing! I particularly like Stella Without Flash.
