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.

  3. I love this shade! I have yet to try these round lipsticks

  4. They changed the formula! It looks like yours is the new formula (judging by the shape of the lipstick and you said it doesn't smell as bad) but the old packaging, mine have the new packaging and formula. If you check the ingredient list, you'll know. The new formula is MUCH better, and also it's less oily.

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

About the product:

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
