Review: NYX Round Lipstick in Hot Pink

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.

Don't forget to check my Date Night Look where NYX rls in Hot Pink was used!

What do you think about NYX round lipsticks? I would love to hear from you!

God bless!


  1. That is a lovely color but I totally agree with you on the formulation...I'm not a big fan of it.

    1. I hope NYX improves on that. I thought it was just the weather here in the Philippines that make it melt like crazzzy. Thanks for dropping by! <3

  2. I love Nyx round lipstick too! Too bad, it is very hard to find. I have to Nyx RL, (Rose and Louisiana) and the Nyx Hot pink almost similar to Nyx Louisiana, thou yours has lavender undertone. Pero I think Hot pink is better than Louisiana when it comes to the effect on your teeth. Louisiana kasi tends to make your teeth appear more yellowish. Pero they are pigmented no? Kaya lang it isn't long lasting, and yeah the soapy scent and taste! Whloa! lols. Anyway thanks for the compliment to my nails! :)

    1. Yes! Sana may physical store narin ang NYX. I know of one in GirlShoppe at Trinoma. But they're always out of stock! Boohoo. I haven't tried Louisiana yet eh! I want to have NYX in Tea Rose! Aaaaah!!

      You're welcome! <3

  3. Love the shade! But pinks doesn't match my tone right now. Can you suggest other NYX RL shades that fit natural to light skin tones?

    1. Hi clai! I suggest you try Sau Paulo or Antwerp (coral). Lwt me know once you've tried NYX SMLCs!

    2. Hi, I have one in antwerp and the shade is soooo sexy! Love it so much. I can wear it everyday at school without having the "slutty" look.. Btw, was asking about the NYX Round Lipsticks pala, :)sorry if my question wasn't that clear. Wala kasi ako alam na good shade, but I wanna try Haute Melon, what do you think bout that shade? :)

    3. I'm sorry! You already told me na you have Antwerp pala! I want to try that shade! I'm sorry but I'm not very familiar with NYX round lipstick shades. I've only tried a few so far. :)
