NYX Round Lipstick Swatches

Hey everyone,

I figured today I'd get some swatches done while the weather is relatively decent.

I wanted to do some NYX Round Lipstick swatches. I have 17 of them total. I have to admit I'm a lipstick fanatic - even though I usually always wear my go-to lipstick as I'm still learning how to pair different lipsticks with different looks.

I find these lipsticks to be very soft, quite pigmented and last a decent amount of time depending on what you're doing. I love these, especially for the price. My favourite by far is Thalia, in the swatch it seems to look quite dark, however if you check out my recent FOTD here then you can see how it looks applied on my very pale skin.

So here we go.

Left to Right: Doll, Eros, Hebe, Chaos


As you can see from this photo, the first four are very highly pigmented and DO stain a bit.

Top Left to Right: Watermelon, Georgia, Spellbound
Bottom Left to Right: Twist, Ceto, Jupiter

Top Left to Right: Sky Pink, Iced Honey, Orange Soda
Bottom Left to Right: Honey, Iris, Thalia

Those are all of my swatches! I'm sorry they're not great, however if you have any in particular you'd like a better look at, let me know which ones and I'll try to get better photos for you!

I personally buy all of my NYX lipsticks from Nonpareil Boutique where they sell them for a bargain price of $2.00. Shipping is also usually reasonable and it makes it so I can avoid Cherry Culture's ridiculous shipping costs to the UK. They also have sales on now and then, especially around American holidays. I suggest checking them out! They also sell other brands.

Do you have any NYX Round Lipsticks? What are your favourites?


  1. Cute lipsticks! I really like Eros, Hebe, and Spellbound but they're all lovely on you.

  2. Thank you! I find they're all quite pretty in their own way, it's just figuring out how to pair them! I'll manage it, though. They all need love, lol!

  3. Hey, I tagged you on my blog for the top 10 skin care products!

  4. I know what you mean... I need to work more of my makeup into my routine. With P10P I am using unloved stuff, but neglect more of my collection. What a double edged sword lol.

    Also thanks so much for the awesome tips you left on my blog the other day. Water is my best friend--same with green tea and coffee LOL! I'm going to the store in a few days to pick up some healthy snacks.

  5. I love chaos! I actually work really close to NYX headquarters! They have a pretty showroom =)

  6. Me too, it's gorgeous! Really? I'm jealous. I've seen pictures of it - it looks amaaazing!

  7. i loove honey! im totally in love with nude lipsticks lately, great post


  8. Interesting to hear you buy your NYX from over the pond - lovemakeup.co.uk and cocktailcosmetics.co.uk both sell NYX at reasonable prices and are based in the UK so you don't have to pay crazy shipping costs. I think Genie makeup might sell it too. Also, NYX have a UK website as well: http://www.nyxcosmetics.co.uk/

  9. Thanks for the links - I buy from over the pond because including shipping it actually works out to be cheaper than to buy from UK websites or even the NYX UK website. To each their own, though. :)

  10. I rather like the look of Spellbound, Chaos, and Eros. I think I'm really into the raspberry reds and pinks lately!

  11. Lovely lipsticks...I really like this & the shaded of these lipsticks is amazing...I''ll try for this.
