The Sultry Season: NYX Espresso Lipstick

NYX Espresso Lipstick ($4.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted red-toned berry with a creamy feel and semi-glossy finish.  The color applies evenly and opaquely with very little product, and it feels comfortable to wear.

my thoughts on the formula: NYX Round Lipsticks are really creamy and generally opaque in color. The texture and shade range are great. However, the scent of them can run from waxy to synthetic sweetness (neither are particularly pleasant)–and sometimes they smell like nothing at all. I typically get two to three hours of wear.

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 9/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

final thoughts: This shade works well on both cooler and warmer skin tones, but it is particularly lovely on cool, pale skin.

    LOVING the fantastic cream finish – it’s so hard to find those nowadays, yeah?

  7. What a lovely shade! This might be a way to wear a “brown” lip that I can get behind… Haha, seeing as how it’s more berry than brown!
