Hey guys! Just a quick post before I sleep! Here's a review on the lipstick I used on my Date Night Look which is NYX rls in Hot Pink. I know many of you are already familiar with this because NYX round lipsticks are really famous, known for the great pigmentation, wide range of colors and affordable price.
I love that NYX puts color cap at the bottom of it. Really convenient! It is color accurate too. And unlike the color cap that Ever Bilena has on their matte lipsticks, the color cap on NYX is attached well and doesn't come off!
Hot Pink is a really nice shade of pink. Not to bright nor to pale! It gives off a tinge of lavender color in a different lighting. I believe this suits all skin tones! Pardon the not so good lip swatch. I think I didn't exfoliate my lips upon applying the lipstick. Teehee.

What I like about the product:
- The color which is really nice! It's a very wearable shade of pink. If you are afraid to wear pink lipsticks (like me before!), you should definitely try this out
- Great pigmentation. Well, NYX rls lovers know this!
- Glides on smoothly on lips.
- Creamy-finish that is just right!
- Packaging. It's simple but doesn't look cheap at all. Color cap is a big plus!
- Affordable. Each lipstick costs under 150php.
What I don't like about the product:
- Soapy scent. Blegh! You know this too!
- So-so staying power. It comes off easily after a meal!
- Difficult to find. Only available online! Not available in major shopping malls like SM.
- Melts like crazy! I do hope NYX improves their formulation!
In conclusion, NYX round lipsticks have great color selection (really endless choices!), great pigmentation and packaging but must improve on formulation. It really melts like crazy. The soapy scent is annoying too. But I still recommend NYX round lipsticks for those who want to try out different colors. But if you are looking for lipsticks with great staying power, NYX round lipstick is not for you. I've heard NYX matte lipsticks have great staying power.
Where to get:
Many online sellers have NYX products. I personally recommend Chic Cosmetics Manila.
