This is my third lipstick from NYX’s black label range, and the color is called “Chakra.” I am not sure about where to buy these in the market and that’s the reason I always order them online. Online buying does have some advantages, but one of its major disadvantages includes the fact that the shade cannot be swatched. The two lip colors I bought before this one was discounted and hence I did not have many options to choose from, but this time, I decided to get the color I want, even if it’s not on discount. I love pink lips and so I bought this one.
This lipstick comes in a black, square-shaped tube with a transparent base; the base has a color which is similar to the shade of the lipstick. The black tube has beautiful floral pattern printed on it. The lipstick has a secured click closure, which does not allow it to open on its own (basically the lid is not loose and the packaging is sturdy).

My Take on NYX Black Label Lipstick – Chakra:
Chakra is a bright Barbie pink kind of color with no shimmer, but it does give a frosty look on lips. It is a perfect shade for girls who want some color on their lips, but do want to overdo it. Like all other black label lipsticks, this one too is extremely creamy and hence very easy to apply, it glides on like butter on lips. Although it is a light color, still its staying power is good. I expected it to be completely gone after a meal, but surprisingly it was still there, not as shiny as before, but the color was easily visible. Pigmentation wise also, the shade is amazing, one swatch and it’s done.
It has such great qualities but still I wasn’t completely happy with the shade. I applied a little balm 15 minutes before applying this lipstick assuming that it will help and add to the smoothness of the color, it does help with that, but it made the lines on the lips very obvious, all my lines including the very minute ones were showing up clearly under this color.
I also felt that my teeth were looking yellow with this color :(
Pros of NYX Black Label Lipstick – Chakra:
- Non-shimmery color, but gives a light frosty finish for that extra shine.
- Decent staying power/
- Creamy and smooth to apply.
- Color can be recognized without opening the lid (this is one of the best features I love about these lipsticks, it makes selecting the color easy as well as makes the dresser more colorful).
- Beautiful floral packaging.
- High pigmentation.
- No weird smell.
Cons of NYX Black Label Lipstick – Chakra:
- Made my teeth look yellow.
- This color magnifies even the small lines on my lips.
Would I Repurchase NYX Black Label Lipstick – Chakra?
I wasn’t sure about the exact color as I bought it online and hence did not swatch it. Now, after using it, I do like the shade, but as I am not completely satisfied with it, I will not buy it again.
Do I Recommend NYX Black Label Lipstick – Chakra?
If I talk about the range, I completely recommend NYX Black label lipsticks, but if I talk about the color, I will recommend this only to ladies who do not have much lines on their lips or those who are comfortable flaunting those lines.
4/5 (-1 for enhancing even the finest lines on my lips).
