Today, I am reviewing another shade from the NYX Extra creamy lipsticks range – “Stella.” Read on to find out whether I liked it or not.
$4. Prices may vary from store to store.
NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick is our classic lipstick for all occasions. The mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvety texture saturated color and it resists wear and smudging. It’s your go-to lipstick. From Pure Nude to Pink Lyric to Chic Red Round Lipstick is available in a jaw-dropping variety of shades!
My Take on NYX Stella Extra Creamy Lipstick:
Packaging: This lipstick comes in a simple black packaging with a transparent band at one end which shows the color of the lipstick.
The cap shuts tight with a click and there is no chance of the cap coming off loose even if you toss the lipstick around in your bag. The sticker at the top has the name of the shade. I find the packaging to be a bit flimsy and cheap.
Shade and Pigmentation: “Stella” looks like a pretty coral in the bullet, but it looks more like a bright barbie pink on the lips plus it has micro shimmers which gives it a slightly frosty look. This is a lipstick which is sure to draw attention and hence is not recommended for formal occasions. Moreover, this shade will suit only lighter skin tones.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is slightly on the sheer side. You need two swipes to achieve a fully opaque look, but layering makes the application patchy.
Texture and Finish: This lipstick is quite creamy and glides on the lips. However, I would say it is a bit too creamy which makes it easily prone to smears. The finish is a shiny glossy one, but the shimmer particles make it look slightly frosty.
The lipstick does not feel drying on the lips, but it does settle into lines and accentuate them. After a while, the application starts looking patchy.
Also, the lipstick has a slightly weird plastic-ky smell. It is not really too strong and goes away after application.
Staying Power: Due to its creamy nature, the lipstick transfers a lot. It stays for around 4 hours and does not last a full meal.
Pros of NYX Stella Extra Creamy Lipstick:
- Nice glossy finish.
- Does not feel drying on the lips.
- Very affordable.
Cons of NYX Stella Extra Creamy Lipstick:
- This particular shade will not suit all skin tones.
- Patchy application.
- Settles into lip lines.
- Average pigmentation.
- The lipstick has a slightly weird smell.
- Slightly flimsy packaging.
- Transfers a lot.
- Average staying power – around 4 hours.
