NYX Round Lipstick - URANUS

Hey beauties,

Happy Monday. Yes I know we all hate Mondays, so do I. But we cannot avoid it right. Anyhow my today's review is from a famous brand we all know. They make some fabulous products. I am talking about NYX. The lipstick is called URANUS. Let's see how good it is.

Ingredients: Bees wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) wax, Ceresin, Microcrystalline Wax, Polyethylene, Mineral Oil, Octyldodeanol, Polyisobutene, Ethylnexyl, Palmitate, Diisostearyl Maiate, Polyglyceryl - 2, Triisostearrate, Isostearyl Isostearate, Bis - Digylceryl Polyacyladipade - 2, Tocopheryl Acetate, B.H.A, Mica, Pigment (C.I)

What the brand says (As mentioned on their website) :
NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick is our classic lipstick for all occasions. The mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvet 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

Price: Between 350 to 400 bucks. I had got it on a discount for Rs. 316/-

Quantity : 4g

NYX was introduced to India around 3 years back and I got to know of this brand through Youtube. All the beauty gurus were going gaga about this lipstick. I too wanted many shades but then I am not a fan of online shopping.When they were introduced here in Mumbai  I did muster the courage to buy an expensive lipstick which is dirt cheap in the US. Most of the shades I wanted were not available with the SA and I ended picking up this shade.

The lipstick comes in a black plastic packaging. The name of the lipstick is mentioned on the top of the lipstick and there is a shade swatch at the bottom of the lipstick which made it more appealing to me. Also, if you have loads of lipsticks in your kitty you can easily spot the shade you may want to go with by just looking at the swatch. The cap click locks well and can be carried with you in your purse.

The lipstick is a mixture of brown and peach with a hint of copper. The lipstick is hypoallergenic and cruelty free. The lipstick comes from the brown family.It is extremely creamy and moisturizing and glides easily on the lips. Because it is creamy it may bleed out of the lips hence a lip liner should be used if you want to keep it in place. It melts in the tube if not kept in a cool place. The lipstick has a very plasticky smell and taste which is still tolerable for me but I would suggest you to always smell your lipsticks before you buy them.The color pay off is good and you need to apply 2 coats for an opaque finish. The color is a bit darker than what it looks like in the swatches. It has pretty average staying power considering it is very smooth, creamy and moisturizing. It will stay for 2 hours or so but will not leave any stain behind.

Creamy and moisturizing.
Available in a huge array of colors.
Swatch at the bottom of the lipstick.
Cruelty free and hypoallergenic.

Staying power not good.
Plastic smell.
Pricey compared to the price sold in the US.

Rating : 3/5

Although I like the formula of this lipstick, I will not purchase the same shade and would try some other shade with a pink undertone.You can definitely try the other shades, NYX has an awesome shade selection.

I hope you found my review helpul. Have you tried any of these lipsticks???
