**Who are NYX**
NYX are a fairly new and modern brand of make up. They do not fall within the high end brands like MAC or Clinique but instead are priced alike makeup rivals Rimmel and Max Factor so can therefore be described as middle of the road in terms of price and reputation. If i'm being honest I'm not entirely sure which high street shops stock NYX cosmetics I think that Superdrug might but again I'm not certain. If you are wanting to sample NYX products your best bet is to buy online which can be risky as colours can look different on a computer screen to real life and also the quality and finish can not be tested first hand like it can if your purchase cosmetics from a store.
The NYX round lipstick comes in a black, shiny plastic case which is no different to any other lipstick. It has the NYX logo in white text on the lid and the shade of the lipstick can be found on the top of the product. The bottom of the packaging has a transparent strip at the bottom meaning that the exact shade of lipstick can be seen which is very handy when scouring the shelves as you can see the colours first hand without taking off lids etc. Equally, it can be just as handy if this lipstick is in a makeup bag, if you have more than one NYX lipstick you can easily pick out the one you want.
I purchased this NYX lipstick in 'strawberry milk' shade which looked like a soft, but nevertheless pigmented, pink colour. There are loads of NYX shades from daring purples and reds to softer pinks and peaches so there is sure to be a shade to suit every skin tone and taste.
Applying the lipstick is great due to the very soft texture of the lipstick. The slight glossiness helps the application process, too. I do find that you need to go over the lipstick more than once to get an even finish.
Durability is the aspect that I think the product fails on completely. Drinking and eating is a no-no when wearing this lipstick as it wipes off way too easily and looks messy and uneven
I purchased this lipstick using an Amazon giftcard that I got from a survey site and it cost £5.90 including delivery. I think £5.90 is very expensive for a product that doesn't last longer than an hour at most.
Summary: NYX round lipstick
