Its NYX again! I kinda had a mini NYX haul a couple of months back and these back to back reviews are a result of that. Wondering what’s with the name of the shade above?? I too had a hard time figuring that out. This was an impulse buy along with the other stuff. They haven’t mentioned the shade names on the lipstick bullet or anywhere else and I didn’t find any cartons of these either. When I checked online, I kind of got confused as to why only this particular shade didn’t carry a name and then later, I realized it was because the shade itself is called NYX!! Read on to know more about NYX’s NYX! 😛

My Take on NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick – NYX:
NYX describes this shade as Tangerine Pearl – it is a shimmery, frosty orange. I have never picked shimmery stuff and this is the first frosty lipstick that I own.
Like most NYX lipsticks, this is also immensely pigmented. One swipe of it is all you need to get the exact shade on your lips. The color that is visible in the bullet tip is the exact shade of the lipstick inside it. This screams of micro silver and golden shimmer when worn but it photographs really really well. It does bleed a little though, but nothing that a lip liner can’t solve.
At first, I thought it would make a nice bright summery orange shade, but the shimmer in it totally makes it a complete party night shade. The shimmer is definitely a downside for this, but otherwise on the brighter side, it’s a pretty good lipstick. It has good staying power. Lasts on me for about 4-5 hours after which it starts fading. The shimmer too fades evenly along with the color. Here are the pros and cons for you guys to decide whether or not to go for it.
Pros of NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick – NYX:
- Creamy texture.
- Amazing pigmentation.
- Long-lasting lipstick (NYX – I love you for this! :-*)
- Does not look awkward afterwards. As the shade fades, the shimmer too fades evenly.
- Normal packaging, but I like it because it’s easier to choose shades in this one.
- Shimmers are not at all visible in the photographs (but they are pretty obvious in real).
Cons of NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick – NYX:
- Shimmer. Shimmer. Shimmer – it could have been a really pretty color minus that.
- Bleeds a little in summers. Even otherwise, lip liner is a definite must.
- Chemical smell (it last only for a few seconds, but could give headaches to some. Not bothersome for me though).
I like the shade as it photographs really well, but it is definitely not an everyday shade. If you need something unique in your lipstick collection and are okay with shimmers, go for it!
