NYX Haute Melon Lipstick

NYX Haute Melon Round Lipstick ($4.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a creamy semi-opaque coral with a natural shine. It looks more orange in the tube, but over my lips, it looks a bit lighter–almost pinker–due to the natural pinkness of my lips. There’s also a translucency to the color that lets the natural lip color peek through; it’s not really sheer, but it’s not typically opaque. It’s similar to NARS Niagara. Laura Mercier Tangerine is a touch more orange. MAC Crosswires is more orange. Lancome Chris & Tell is lighter. theBalm Strawberry is pinker. Bite Beauty Rose is more intense.

This shade had more slip than other shades I’ve tried within the range, so the color does slide around a bit, which can cause minor unevenness. It’s lightweight even though it’s creamy. I imagine that its shorter wear time of three hours may be due, at least in part, to the same slippery texture that gives it slight application issues. Mine didn’t have any scent, but other NYX lipsticks I’ve tried have almost been vanilla scented. I’ve had this for some time before opening it, though, so it’s possible the scent faded away over time (a lot of my budget-friendly lipsticks lose their scent very quickly).
