NYX Blush Round Lipstick ($3.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium pink with soft, warm yellow undertones and a light shine. It’s almost so warm-toned that it gets into a pink-coral range, but I think it leans just pink enough to still be a pink hue overall. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a creamy consistency that easily glided onto lips. It had a fair amount of slip, which was great for application, but it did seem like it wore off a bit faster as a result–though it was lightly hydrating while it lasted (three and a half hours). Givenchy Rose d’Exception (206) (LE, $36.00) is more muted, darker. MAC Hoop (DC, $15.00) is brighter. Urban Decay Naked (P, $22.00) is similar. Urban Decay Native (P, $22.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Rush (P, $22.00) is darker. Chanel Liaison (P, $34.00) is similar. MAC Flamingo (LE, $15.00) is warmer, a touch lighter. MAC Betty Bright (LE, $15.00) is brighter.
