NYX Round Lipstick in Electra

NYX Round Lipstick in Electra

Hey friends,

I am back with another lippie review!! ๐Ÿ˜€ and its red!! I have always had fascination for red lips, I still have. I collect different reds and look for occasions to wear them, hehe, red lips look so feminine, yet bold and powerful, vintage and classic and its fashionโ€™s favourite lip colour. I love a good old red mouth :-* ๐Ÿ˜‰ and I think everyone should have at least one red lippie in their vanity box : -).

NYX Lipstick Electra

I had a couple of warm-toned reds, but still didnโ€™t have a cool-toned one and wanted to see how cool tone red would look on me, would it be better than warm reds or not?

So, in a quest for hunting for cool-toned red, I stumbled upon NYX Electra on IMBB sale and instantly grabbed it.

Umm, it varies. I think my total cost with shipping came around to Rs. 250 to 275, I think. Otherwise, in india, it retails at around 400 rupees and online purchasing will cost 4$ . for 4 gm.

What the Company Claims:
NYX Round Lipstick is smooth and moisturising with every application! This is a velvet-textured lip cream that covers the lips with rich color that smoothes and moistures lips with each application. NYX Round Lipstick is NYXโ€™s best selling lipstick.


My Experience with NYX Round Lipstick โ€œElectra:โ€

NYX lipsticks need no introduction, he he. I really like how the packaging looks. I just lurrve the jet black casing with the transparent bottom which shows the true colour of the lipstick inside and it closes with a satisfying click and it smells soapy.:stars:

The pigmentation is awesome! Just one swipe and the true colour is out there, but being red and a slightly deeper shade; it bleeds and it bleeds like its nobody business! It smears, it smudges, pheww because of which I donโ€™t dare wear this colour outside my house. I have worn it only once, for a very formal fine dining, but not without apprehensions. I was constantly checking if it has smeared here or there. Because I had left my hair open and yes, one strand, just one strand of hair touching the lips can smear this lippie:haanji:

Although, I had worn a lipliner underneath, it didn’t last for more than one hour and yes, after eating some food, your lips look au naturel ๐Ÿ˜‰ :stars: :stars: with no trace of this colour anywhere.

It is a gorgeous red, completely cool toned. I liked how it looked on me. I did numerous photosessions wearing this red lippie at home :puppy: :puppy:, but now, its time to move on and find a cool red โ€“ albeit ; with lasting power, which I can actually utilise outside the four walls of my home :hihi:



*Its a true cool red and a gorgeous one at that!
*Affordable, you can test/experiment how some colours look on you by using NYX lipsticks and can move on to other more expensive/better brands to buy that kind of shade.
*Extremely pigmented.
*Doesnโ€™t dry my lips.
*Transparent bottom, easy to locate the shade.



*It bleeds, smears, smudges, pheww!
*It has a glossy finish, although whether it should be matte or glossy is a personal preference, but I would rather have a matte red lipstick, so that I can wear it on its own when I want it to look slightly understated or just apply a clear gloss over it to make it look glossy whenever I feel like it.
*Soapy smell.
*Poor staying power even with a base.
*Easily transfers on teeth ๏Œ
*Should be stored under right temperature conditions or the lipstick melts off in the case.

Would I Repurchase?


Would I Recommend it to Others:

Nope, there are tons of reds out there and the red quest usually goes on ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. sometime like to put red….and its good choice for evening marriage party and traditional function………so not bad for me ………….like it :waytogo: :waytogo:

    1. ya its good for functions and all… but galti se bhi mat lena…. function chalu hone se pehle hi lipstick nikal jayegi sim :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi:

    1. actualy its not that dark parita… swatch mein its looking a lil dark… but on lips its true red… the lip swatch is the correct shade :haanji: :haanji: :haanji:

    1. try wearing this at home though…. ghar pe lagate lagate slowly ull start feeling ..ohh what the heck..!! lemme wear it out!! :-* :-*

  5. staying power is problem with NYX lippies ๐Ÿ™ u shd try blotting it with tissue and reapply , it will last little longer
    Nice review !! love the last pic

    1. thankyou deeptima… :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:
      ya the staying power of nyx lippies is bad.. but this one is worse.. probably because its a deeper shade and such colours tend to bleed more..
      ill try the tissue trick and see :yes: :yes: :thanks: :thanks: O:) O:)

  6. I love that last lip photo! I’ve never dared to try a cool toned red, since I am warm toned. Which one are you? This would look so good for a retro look with crimped hair and a black or white outfit.

    1. pata nahi shai.. i still dont know if im cool toned or warm… generaly kabhi both tones suit me .. kabhi both give problems.. so i have settled onto the idea that im a neutral :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:
      yep its amazing for retro and pinup looks…
      i wear it as a pinup ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. beee hahaha scahi.. iv also always loved pouting!! :puppy: :puppy: :puppy:
      ya this kinda shade is good for pinup looks… just thi lippie.. subtle eyeshadow. and winged liner.. mast dikhta hai :pompom: :pompom: :pompom:

    1. ya hai toh achha.. but u can alway start from trying subtle red.. slowly slowly build confidence and ull b surprised how u will..wanna wear such true red shades … :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
      atleast mere saath toh aia hi hua :hihi: :hihi: :hihi:

  7. OMG super gorgeous pout nehaa!! I have recently started wearing red outside but that’s not like the super duper red, it’s a little toned down. I wish i could pull off such ahot sexy red. It’s HOTTTTTTT!! :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:

    1. hihi thankoo rati…. :shying: :shying: :shying: :shying: :shy:
      me too i still wear toned down reds only ..
      but i wear full on reds only to certain places and i know that ill be comfortable wearing it in certain friends’ company… red lipstick is soo hard to wear it “just” anywhere” :struggle: :struggle: :struggle:

  8. I guess all NYX lip products have a soapy smell that’s the reason I never end up using them. i do like the textures of the round lipsticks though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. haha ya its hot… but not a nice one to buy.. :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali:
      i will hopefully review an “almost dupe” soon. u shud try that!
      thankyou dimpi.. and u can call me neha… no need to say neha s. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ :puchhi: :puchhi:
