NYX Round Lipstick in Electra
I am back with another lippie review!! 😀 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 fashion’s favourite lip colour. I love a good old red mouth :-* 😉 and I think everyone should have at least one red lippie in their vanity box : -).
I had a couple of warm-toned reds, but still didn’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 NYX’s best selling lipstick.
My Experience with NYX Round Lipstick “Electra:”
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 don’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 😉 :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 – 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.
*Doesn’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.
*Poor staying power even with a base.
*Easily transfers on teeth
*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 😉
