Nyx Round Lipsticks in Pumpkin Pie & Tea Rose

Nyx Round Lipsticks in Pumpkin Pie & Tea Rose

Under the spotlight today, we have NYX round lipsticks in Pumpkin Pie and Tea Rose.

NYX Round Lipstick
NYX Round Lipstick is a classic lipstick for all-year round. 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 144 shades.


My thoughts?

Pumpkin Pie
It's a semi sheer peachy nude shade.

Tea Rose
It's a beautiful muted rosy shade. A full coverage lipstick.

I hear people raving so much about these lipsticks. What makes it so special? The price + huge variety of shades I believe. I truly admire this but unfortunately, these didn't work for me so well. I really wanted to love them but I don't.

I got myself pumpkin pie and tea rose and I LOVE the shades. I so don't like the flimsy packaging - it makes me angry. The lipsticks are creamy, moisturizing and soft but in my case, they're too soft and fragile (I live in a hot/humid city). I ordered these through Pork Daisy.com and my first pumpkin pie came damaged. Pork Daisy was very kind to replace it for me. The second one came alright but if you look closely, both lippies are slightly bent from the base. Now thanks to Nyx, I have developed this phobia that if  I press my lipsticks too hard, they'd melt or break. All of a sudden all my lipsticks (M.A.C, Rimmel, Beautyuk, DMGM) feel shaky and seem bent, I fear I'd break them or something. I am beyond careful with all my lipsticks now. Also, these don't last long on my lips. The color starts fading on me after an hour.

Despite the problems, I can't deny the fact that these are cheap and come in a huge variety of colors and finishes.

Here are the swatches

Here's how they both appear on me

You might like it if...
  • You are looking for inexpensive lipsticks with variety of shades and finishes.
  • You want a lipstick that is creamy and moisturizes.
  • You're hunting for M.A.C dupes.
You might not like it if...
  • You have to order them online. These are very fragile and bend easily.
  • You want your lipsticks to last long.

My rating:
3.5/5

Overall, these are just OK lipsticks, not very impressive in my opinion. I am sorry Nyx.

These cost $2.98 from PorkDaisy.com. The website ships worldwide.


So what do you think about these? Do you own NYX round lipsticks?

  1. I do! I own 9 shades. I don't like their velvety texture... I prefer creamy lippies cause they last longer and don't smear :) X

  3. I own the same shades, and I actually like the colors, but because of the fact that they have slightly okay packaging and melt so easily and quickly in areas like Pakistan.. i usually tend not to use them that often.

    But nonetheless, the colors look good on you! :)

  6. Tea rose looks good. But I don't like the taste of Nyx lipsticks. Though my lipstick didn't melt, or nothing happened to it yet.
    Great review! :)

  10. Haha I know.. Got a little carried away ^^

    I also think the NYX round lipsticks are just OK, some of the shades really doesn't look like the swatch at the website at all.. Weird shimmer..

    But their nice for a glossy finish on a photoshoot =)

  13. They both look gorgeous with your complexion! I own a bunch of NYX round lipsticks and Tea Rose is definitely one of my favorites. I am not crazy about their scent so I don't use them that much but I love Tea Rose's color so I suck up the scent and wear it anyway :)

  24. Definitely agree. NYX lipsticks aren't the BEST quality lipsticks, but for the price and the color selection they are hard to beat in their price range. I haven't tried either of these colors because, after my last NYX binge, I decided to switch over to higher end stuff. ; w ; Why do you have to tempt me so?
