NYX Frappucino is a mix of brown and peach and beige and pink. It is a real nude shade. If worn alone without any eye makeup, it will wash out most of the girls with medium to dark skin tones. To some, it might even look like you have applied concealer on the lips. It is that type of nude, but for very fair girls, I think this will be a MLBB shade.
Buttery! It is so creamy and buttery that if you apply it like you apply your other lipsticks, you will end up like in the picture above! So, make sure to apply it with a very light hand. Pigmentation is great and it will cover any lip pigmentation in a single swipe itself. It transfers very easily to things like coffee mugs and husband’s cheeks. It has a tendency to bleed. So, make sure to use a lip liner first. However, it did not dry out my lips or settle into the fine lines. It has a strong smell which fades after a few minutes.
Another important thing worth mentioning is its melting power. Don’t carry it in your pockets or put your bag with this in the sun. It melts very easily. It also makes the tube rims dirty while you rotate it in and out. Since it is so creamy, staying power is not that great. It fades away without leaving any tint after two to three hours. There is no shimmer or glitter particles in this one.
Since I applied a bit too much in the first photo, I blotted it out and this is how it should look.
Comparison with Maybelline “My Mahogany”
I have “My Mahogany” and although Frappucino is more opaque and has more pink in it than My Mahogany; on lips, it looks very similar. They are not exactly the same, but definitely very similar to each other. Don’t you think so?
Pros of NYX Round Lipstick in Frappucino:
- Moisturizing, no need to apply lip balm.
- Good color payoff in a single swipe itself.
- Very creamy, glides on easily like butter.
- Huge number of colors to select from, around 144 shades.
- Reasonably priced. Most of the sites carry discounts on these lipsticks regularly.
- Did not settle into fine lines.
Cons of NYX Round Lipstick in Frappucino:
- Be careful not to apply too much, else it will give a cakey look.
- Bleeds, you will need a lip liner for sure.
- Melts very easily.
- Lipstick will get dented and the rims will be smeared while rotating it in and out.
- Staying power is less, around 2 to 3 hours.
- Strong smell, which I personally dislike.
Will I Repurchase NYX Round Lipstick in Frappucino?
No, if you want to play with colors without breaking your bank, then NYX round lipsticks have 144 shades to choose from. Otherwise, I feel that there are a lot of other good quality brands available in India around the same price range which is of far superior quality than this.
