Hi Dear IMBB Gang,
I joined the “perfect-coral-lipstick” hunt very late, but I am very happy with the results, thanks to all you beautiful people in IMBB. I now have around 8+ coral lipsticks and now I am going to review the lipstick I consider as the ultimate coral lipstick from orange side of coral family (I know many would disagree, this is a very personal judgment). I saw this lip color while I was checking out some shades in Porkdaisy and was not sure if this was actually a wearable shade, but when I got this, I was super happy.

Whew! So, I guess I don’t really need to bore you all with description of the product, ingredient list, etc!
My Experience with NYX Round Lipstick in Shade Femme:
I love this lipstick for its bright orang-ish coral shade with pink tones and the instant brightening effect it gives to my un-evenly-shaded tanned skin. I hate this for how easily it melts if taken out of fridge for more than 3-4 hours, especially in the humid-hot climate of Kerala. I finally accepted defeat and bought a little china clay pot and dumped this lipstick inside that and now I am using this with a brush.
This shade looks its best out in the sun and I love how this can transform into a very glam shade on lips. Thankfully, this is a no-shimmer, no luster, and a very creamy lipstick; I am in love with cream lipsticks now! In a single swipe, this gives enough color for a nice outing. I set the color using some finishing powder on my lips and prefer to keep it original without any gloss. Again, I must say this is not a color you would want to wear in full intensity or even in one complete swipe.
I usually dab it along my upper and lower lips and fill it out depending on how sheer I want the color to look. I keep my face and eye makeup to minimum when I increase the intensity of the color, as this lip color should be worn alone in my opinion.
I have read somewhere that this is a dupe of MAC Surf Baby Hibiscus lipstick and MAC Vegas Volt, but since I don’t have either, I cannot compare.
Now, this lipstick has all the disadvantages of NYX round lipsticks. My main complaint is its lasting power. I have issue with re-application, as I have moved it to a lip pot (because it melted) and it is very difficult to use it while traveling or when I am outside. I have read that NYX lipsticks dry off on lips, but I have not faced any problem so far as I always apply lip balm before anything.
Again, this is not a shade for everyone, I think this would look best for dark or tanned complexions as opposed to fair skin, where the bright color might look very garish, but the thing that puts me off is its scent!
Pros of NYX Round Lipstick in Shade Femme:
- Bright lovable glam orange-y coral shade for a perfect summer outing.
- Buildable color.
- Cheap, cheap, cheap!
- Creamy, smooth application.
Cons of NYX Round Lipstick in Shade Femme:
- There are many and many!
- Horrible smell!
- Packaging that dents the lipstick every time you use (I have used this in tube only two times and you can see how much product is smeared on the edges).
- Be prepared to see this melting away, especially if you live in a humid area.
- Lasting power of just 2-3 hours maximum without food.
- Non-availability in India.
Swatch with a single swipe.
4/5. Okay, I bought this only for the color, so the only thing that is a minus for me is the horrible smell and melting nature of aspect.
Will I Buy Again:
Not the same color maybe, but I would definitely want to try other shades from NYX, mainly because it’s creamy and its cheap and the range has so many colors to try out from!
