My take on NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Thalia:
NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipsticks come in more than 100 beautiful shades. At the first glance, I wanted to own all of them. But started with the more popular ones. NYX Thalia is a favorite among you-tubers and lipstick fans. The color is a muted mauve, bordering towards nude, pale pink. The lipstick is described as MLBB status by lot of people. The first time I wore this lipstick, I did not like it. There were two reasons – first, I wore it without any makeup on my face and second, I did not like the shine on the lipstick.
So, I worked around it. This is not a lipstick that will brighten your face. You need some amount of makeup to carry it off, especially little dark eyes. For the shine part, I made it look a little matte, with the help of a tissue and a compact powder. And I loved the result. It is the perfect companion for smokey eyes. I love the effect it gives to my entire face – quite subdued but nonetheless, sultry.
Texture: NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Thalia is an extremely creamy and smooth lipstick. It does not have a frosty shine, but due to the creamy texture it looks shiny. Feels very light on the lips and does not dry them at all. It glides very easily on the lips. However, this creamy texture can result in melted lipstick in summers.
Pigmentation: Decently pigmented. Two swipes and you have a beautiful color on your lips. More than that will make you look garish. I generally pat away some color with the tissue, so the lip swatch will be slightly lighter than what the lipstick shade is.
Staying Power: NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Thalia has an average lasting power of 3-4 hours. It does not completely vanish while eating, but you will need to touch it up.
Smell: The lipstick has a strong smell that resembles a bar of soap. It does not stay for long though. I do not find it irritating, but those of you have sensitive nose, please smell it before you buy it.
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a black round lipstick packaging. The name of the lipstick is mentioned on the top of the cap and the bottom of the lipstick has the color of the lipstick. Though the packaging looks sleek, but it does not feel very sturdy.
What I love about NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Thalia:
- Muted mauvy shade of pink.
- Perfect for subtle but different lips.
- Very creamy texture.
- Glides like a dream.
- Decent pigmentation.
- Does not transfer or bleed.
- Very hydrating to the lips.
- Sleek looking packaging.
What I do not love about NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Thalia:
- Shine, but thats just me; I prefer matte finishes.
- May melt in summers.
- Has a strong soapy smell.
- Would have loved longer staying power.
- May wash out deeper skin tones.
Final Impression: NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Thalia is a surprise winner for me. I hated the lipstick when I first applied it, but working around the issues, I simply love the shade. Very different from normal nude or pink shades. Will take your sultry eye look to another level. But you do need some makeup on your face to make it look beautiful. A must buy for fair and medium skin tones. Definitely Recommended!!!
