NYX Rose Lipstick

NYX Rose Round Lipstick ($4.00 for 0.14 oz.) is an ultra frosted rosy pink with lighter rose shimmer. This is one of the frostiest lipsticks I can remember trying. MAC Whirls & Twirls has a similar frost level, but it’s sheerer (and the colors do not compare). Revlon Carnation is pinker, darker. Rimmel Dizzy is pinker, less frosted. MAC Hot Gossip is warmer, lighter.

The color coverage is mostly opaque, but because of the high level of frost present in the formula, it is very dry and difficult to apply. It does not want to slide on, so the color deposits unevenly and the shimmer tends to look chunky. I found this particular shade to be drying when worn as well, which is a huge downside. It was hard to wear for the full four hours that it clung to lips, and afterward, I really had to race for the lip balm to rehydrate my lips!

Just in case I wasn’t clear. The previous version of Rose was more of a cream finish. I was so sad when I ordered another one only to find this gritty frosty un-hot mess.

Wow! It sucks that they made such a huge change! Are the numbers the same? I know NYX does a letter/number system and wondered if that was the same as well!

Such a shame. It looks so pretty in the tube!

A decent drugstore dupe would probably be Verve from Covergirl’s Lip Perfection collection, but it’s definitely a shade or two lighter than this. More comfortable, though.

Aw, man. That’s too bad – it looks beautiful. But that’s why Temptalia is so great – you’re doing the test work so we can keep those extra four dollars in our pockets. Thanks Christine!!!

The EXACT same thing happened with Vitamin NYX lipstick. Too frosty to even work with. Mac’s frosts are wearable, but that one was not. Seriously, do not purchase that lipstick (Vitamin).

did anyone hear about the FDA..THIS past week reporting LEAD IN lipsticks and they have all the brands listed..that have way over the amounts of lead in them…REVLON, LOREAL’,MAYBELINE…ARE THE MAIN ONES BUT THEIRS MORE…..i dont buy or test those brands…so…heads up!
