Review and Swatches: NYX Round Lipsticks 'Snow White ' + 'Pure Nude'

Thursday, October 9, 2014

My local CVS just started carrying NYX products, so I decided to pick up a couple lipsticks from the classic Extra Creamy Round lipstick line, 'Snow White' and 'Pure Nude.' Take a look at what I think!

Swatches (with flash)
NYX describes "Pure Nude" as a neutral baby pink (cream)
NYX describes "Snow White" as a deep blue-toned red (satin)

Swatch (without flash)

"Pure Nude" NYX Extra Creamy Round lipstick applied straight from the tube

Applied with NYX "Nude Pink" lipliner
This would look best with a nude or pink gloss on top.

If you're in a bind and need a lipstick quick, these are awesome. At four bucks, they're super affordable,  have great pigmentation, are creamy but not too creamy, and come in a whole range of colors. But their chemically smell and sketchy ingredients (parabens, BHA) make the NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipsticks a pass for everyday wear for me. I also personally prefer drier, more matte lipsticks for the long-wear factor.

Hope you enjoyed my quick and dirty review and swatches!

    1. I know! They really are, especially Snow White, I think!

  2. I didn't realize that there were so many bad ingredients in the NYX Lipsticks. I LOVE these. I actually don't smell any chemical oder, but I do agree that with ingredients that aren't totally sound, I may have to rethink my everyday wear..!

    Much Love,

    1. Hey Stephanie! Thanks for stopping by! Hmm, maybe I just got a weird batch that came with that weird smell. But yes, unfortunately, almost all the NYX lipstick lines' ingredients are on the sketchy side for everyday wear :/

  3. wowowowowowowow! Gorgeous colors (and photos!) No parabens would have been nice though :/
