The Round Lipsticks are velvety textured and long lasting, making them NYX's best selling lippys. They're available for £4.95 each via the NYX website.
I decided to go for the 3 lipsticks offer Joy's cosmetic offers, seeing as I need a collection of red lipsticks for my bridal makeup collection. So I chose Margarita, Chaos and Eros; a coral colour and two reds.
swatches:I received the lipsticks within 2 weeks which was great, however I think I may have used an old Margarita lipstick in my makeup course as this one I received seemed a bit more frosty.. does anyone know for certain if the old Margarita lipstick was a tad less frostier? I'm sure it was in the makeup course and more coral-ly than frosty peach.
Anyway, that was the only disappointment as frosty colours tend not to suit my lips as they are darker/pigmented, so on to the other two colours I chose: Chaos & Eros.
A dark, red lippy, bordering on the purple side in my pics! I do prefer this red to Eros though. Review: it's definitely pigmented, smoothes on nicely on the lips (provided you have Vaseline or a lip primer on!) and is reasonably priced considering!
Here's how it looked on my lips:
A orange-red lipstick, bright and slightly shimmery compared to Chaos, which has little to no shimmer at all!
Here's how Eros looked on my lips:
Overall, the consistency of the lipsticks are great, not too drying and definitely better on the lips than the Diamond Sparkle lipstick I got before (check here for the post). The Diamond Sparkle lipstick is smooth and moisturising, but grainy in texture because of the glitteriness.
The packaging seems a tad cheap but it's expected to be honest and I do like the little window at the bottom of the lipstick that tells you what shade of lipstick it is. My only qualm with the packaging is that the colour is named on the lid.. so if you have three (or more!) lipsticks like me and have a terrible short term memory, it's easy to get it mixed up!
All in all though, aside from the Margarita non-suitability, I love these lipsticks and will defo buy some more soon!
Do you have any NYX lipsticks? Which colours would you recommend?
