NYX Pink Lyric Lipstick

NYX Pink Lyric Round Lipstick ($4.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brightened magenta pink with cool, blue undertones. The finish is creamy with very minor settling into lip lines and opaque color coverage. MAC Pink Pigeon is a touch darker and brighter. MAC Love Forever is a touch darker and less pink (more purple). NARS Schiap is darker, pinker. Milani Rose Hip is pinker, brighter. MAC Florida looks similar.

This one has a lot of creaminess, but it doesn’t slip around as much as Stella or Haute Melon. The consistency allows for really smooth application with excellent color payoff. Pink Lyric applies smoothly, though, and it doesn’t slide around and slip over itself. When I trialed the wear of this shade, I was able to get four hours out of it, which is average for lipstick for me.  I really liked the natural sheen of the finish, because it gave lips a more luminous look.

A-
If you've been on the hunt for a bright, blue-based pink that won't break the bank, NYX Pink Lyric is a great option. There's a balance between brightness and level of color--it's not fully neon, but it'll still be the star of any look.

    Thanks for the swatch Christine! But what I want to know is what’s in your lower lash line on this pic?! Beautiful!

  2. You are making me want every Nyx lipstick! I reall love this fun and bright colour, I really think it suits your complexion very well. Also love the creamy finish of these :).

    Beautiful Kris!! lovely color

  4. I have this one! :) I don’t wear it a ton, but I do really like it, most of Nyx’s new colors look pretty nice although I haven’t seen great swatches of most of them. I’m so glad that you’re swatching them though! In any case, I’m glad you compared it to Love Forever, because that’s one that I did want, and I didn’t realize this one was so close! And plus, this one sticks to my lips like crazy, so no problem with extensive wear for me!

    did you read about this. lipstick with lead, i’ve already spotted 2 that i have.

    • Did you read the article? Because there are no safety concerns with the 400 lipsticks they tested.

      • Someone sent me this link the other day and I noticed the same thing… Right in the first few lines of the report: “FDA’s studies have found no lead levels that would pose safety concerns when lipstick is used as intended.”

        • However, it WAS actually kind of fun to read though and see the different levels… not only in the different brands but also with the different colors/formulas :)

        • I received a dozen pitches about lead in lipstick and how we should all switch to X brand as a result of this study… except it appears nobody who pitched took time to read the page at all and just thought scare tactics were the right way to go about it!

    How does this compare to MUFE 36?

    Christine, I know you probably mentioned it earlier in a previous post but what eyeliner are you wearing in those pictures on your lower lashline?

  10. Wow, that looks so much better on you than it did in the tube. Must be the luminous look you were talking about! :)

  11. Elle

    Have this and love it, it’s been my go-to lipstick for the last couple of weeks! However mine doesn’t look that dark pink in the tube as in your pictures..hmm. Looks about the same on the lips though. Love it!

  12. ellie

    It really looks nice but i’m still on the hunt for a pink pigeon dupe.

  13. Ooh it was really a surprise once swatched on your lips! Much more milky and less intense then I thought, a little lighter. I really like this one!

  14. love how this looks on you, pink but not screaming “please look at me” pink… gorgeous!

  15. Natalie

  16. wow

    that’s a very pretty color ^_^
