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.

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.
