Review: NYX Round Lipstick in Paris and Haute Melon

What I love:
-The color is very pigmented
-Creamy and glides on very smoothly
-Cheap. Bought it at php 95 each. How cheap is that, ei?
-Has a very wide variety of colors to choose from

What I don't like:
-Staying power. It last for only 2-3 hours. But it will fade easily when you eat or drink.
-Not available locally. Purchased online and will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to arrive. Unless its an On Hand item. I mean, it would be good if it can be bought on the malls right?

The smell.. Its ok with me. IMHO, Paris smells like the Etude House's make up remover and Haute Melon smells nothing.. I think.. :) I read in other reviews that the smell of NYX lippies are kind of different. The smell of these babies doesn't bother me much. It's not stinky at all.

Will I repurchase?
-Yes, definitely! I will also try other shades

I'm in a hunt for an orange-y lipstick so I figured to try Haute Melon. But it's not that orange-y for me. Its more of an orange red lipstick.. It looks orange on the swatch but not on my lips. It turns to a light red color. Not the orange that I'm looking for but it's still fine with me. I'm still gonna use this one and I like this toned down orange red shade.

My original order was Tea Rose, but it was OOS so I chose Paris instead. I never regret getting this one.  It has a purple undertone and I'm lovin' this Barbie Pink color, so girly and so pink :). Most of my officemates love the shade too.

The Swatch:

Paris - without flash
Paris - with flash

Have about you, gorgeous? Have you tried any NYX products? What's your favorite? Can you suggest other good shades of NYX lippies (or products)? Thanks! :)


  1. Where did you purchase this? I mean what is the name of the online shop?
