NYX Cosmetics Round Lipstick - Spell Bound [Review+Swatch]

Again, a lipstick review. This shows how much I am into lipsticks these days, that too bright colors.

After the bad experience I had with NYX Round Lipsticks, I swore I will never buy them again. When I was asked to pick one color from NYX Round Lipstick for myself, I thought of giving it a try once again. I searched many colors online, and picked "Spell Bound". Did I like it this time? Read more to find out.

My experience:
I was always fascinated with NYX Round lipsticks; because of the wide and beautiful color range. What I didn't like about the lipsticks previously, was the smell, taste and color payoff. But, this time I was amazed to see the quality and pigmentation. It seems, I received the fake ones earlier (may be).

I had an issue with the smell and taste, which was just like a washing powder; this time it has NO taste and NO smell(thank God). I also had issues with the color pay off; it was sheer. But, it proved me wrong this time; it has full coverage and an amazing color payoff.  I am impressed with the staying power. It's long-lasting and stays put for 4 to 5 hours on my lips, and then starts fading very slowly.

"Spell Bound", is a dark bright PINK color; somewhat like a strawberry. It is a creamy lipstick; not glossy nor matte. It is a wearable color and will look gorgeous on every skin tone. It is a statement color, on the days when you don't want to apply too much of makeup. For night, you can go with subtle eye makeup or light smokey eyes and pink cheeks. Always remember, whenever you apply pink toned lipsticks, go for pink toned blushes; it compliments. But, keep the blush subtle if the lipstick is dark and vice versa.

The texture of the lipstick is creamy and smooth. It glides on very easily. Packaging of the Round lipstick is flimsy, but it is much better as compared to NYX Matte lipstick's packaging.


  • Creamy.
  • Long Lasting.
  • Pigmented.
  • Affordable.
  • HUGE range of colors.
  • Packaging. (the only con)
All in all, I am in love with Round Lipsticks, and I'm happy that I gave it another chance. If you are a dark lipstick person, you should definitely get this color.

Price on the NYX Website: $4.00 - PKR 364.

The price will not be the same, as you have to include shipping charges as well.

You can order this lipstick on SPLURGE makeup page on Facebook. The order arrives safely on your doorstep within a month's time.

I went to Naheed Supermarket and found this little jar. I had alot of time that day to go through something for my haircare. I picked up a jar from Boots, which was more like a conditioner to me. But, when I saw this, I picked up this and read about it. I thought of giving it a try. This one is for Dry or Permed Hair. And it is in flavor HONEY.

Glamourous Face 48+48 Eye shadow Palette [Review]

The wedding season is on, some of you might be looking for good products to buy for yourself for your own wedding or for yourself to get ready for someone else's wedding. It is really hard to find good quality eyeshadows with affordable price. All this year I kept looking for a good eye shadow palette, but was unable to find one. I ended up buying single eye shadows.

Finally, I came to know about this palette through a blogger [Sara Hassan] who did a review about it on her blog. Seriously, after reading the reviews I was so excited to buy it. Thanks to her for sharing. I wouldn't have bought it if I would have seen it before the review. 

So, without wasting the time, let me introduce you to my favourite palette :)
I am in love with this palette. It has all you need. I was looking for so many colours which I found in it. I am really excited to have this palette, and it is my first ever BIG palette. Colours like carbon black, warm browns, pinks, greens are the ones I love the mos…

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.
