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.

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.

[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.
