NYX Round Lipstick in Summer Love - Review

June 05, 2013


NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in 617 Summer Love / 0.4 ounces / $4

This 'extra creamy' lipstick from NYX Cosmetics is one of their classic and most coveted lip products with a large collection of velvet soft textures and bold pigments. Described by NYX as a 'beige with soft pink undertones', I would say it's more of a slightly frosty, dusty pink with a cool undertone. Summer Love is a unique nude in my collection; it blanked out my lips like a typical nude shade would, however the pink tones stood out enough to make it more wearable and flattering. All I can think of when wearing it is that it would be perfectly described as a blush, ballerina slipper pink.

Formula
The formula of the Extra Creamy Round Lipstick definitely lives up to it's name. It is so soft and glides on the lips smoothly to give an opaque application with just one full swipe. The texture was a little thick and heavy which did cause some settling into lines, however this could be solved with a lighter application, blotting in between layers. Although the glossy finish is beautiful, the super soft formula tends to slide around the lips until it sets and even then feels a bit 'wet'.

Lasting Power
With the texture of the lipstick being so creamy, it does transfer when touched. If it is left alone, the color stays on a decent four hours without needing any touch ups. After it has completely disappeared from my lips, they felt hydrated from the mineral-based emollient formula.



Find
The NYX Round Lipsticks can be found online at NYXCosmetics.com or CherryCulture.com (great discounts and sales), as well as in store at Ulta and select Targets.

Conclusion
As with all of the NYX Round Lipsticks I have tried, Summer Love has a glossy, rich look that makes it so easy to wear I reach for it quite often. This is the perfect light pinky nude that gives a hint of color so that you don't look washed out or as pale as a ghost. If you want this shade to last all day, make sure to blot and layer once to seal in the creamy texture and prevent it from moving around.

Do you like to wear nude lipstick?

  5. I feel like this one would be a little bit too light for me, but I definitely need to check out others as soon as I get to the US.

  6. This is a really pretty color on you. Nice and pale and nude without being deathly pale. I have tried this formula before but with different colors that didn't suit me. (Bought them online.) But I'll try this one out next time I pick up some more NYX. Thanks for the review!

  20. This looks like a beautiful lipstick! I have naturally quite pigmented lips so the shade would probably look a bit weird on me but I will definitely be having a browse of their other shades! xx
