NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Paparazzi Review, Swatches & FOTD



NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Paparazzi

Hey all beauty geeks!!! I have been a little on and off on Wiseshe lately. The reason is that we are moving next week. And it is so much work to pack the entire house. Anyways, I could not stay away for long and I am here answering the call of duty. I am reviewing another Extra Creamy Round Lipstick from NYX called Paparazzi. I picked up this lipstick not because of its color, but because of its name. It reminds of the super hit song by Lady Gaga – Paparazzi. And I am still humming the song while writing this review. πŸ˜‰ So, lets find out if there is some merit to lipstick other than the name. πŸ™‚

My take on NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Paparazzi:

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipsticks come in more than 100 beautiful shades. I own four of them and all are varying colors of pink. There is definitely something about pink. Just a little variation makes it a completely different color. As I mentioned earlier that I did not even look at the color of the lipstick while buying it. Thankfully it turned out to be a safe bet. NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Paparazzi is a beautiful shade of medium pink, with neutral undertones. I love that it is neither warm toned, nor cool toned. Just a simple pink shade that is so wearable with anything and everything. πŸ™‚

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Paparazzi has the same finish as the NYX Thalia lipstick. I do dab it with a tissue to take away the shine. But, you need not do the same as this color looks good with the glossy finish. Since the shade is neutral toned, I do not have to worry to balance the undertones in the other makeup I wear. It is an everyday pink color for me. πŸ™‚

Texture: NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Paparazzi is an extremely smooth and creamy lipstick. It looks glossy and shiny due to the creamy texture. Feels very light on the lips and does not dry them at all. It glides easily on the lips. However, this creamy texture can melt in the summers.

Pigmentation: NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Paparazzi is decently pigmented. I generally pat away some color with the tissue to take away the shine, so the lip swatch will be slightly lighter than what the lipstick shade is.

Staying Power: NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Paparazzi has an average lasting power of 3-4 hours. You will need a touch up post a meal.

Smell: The lipstick has a strong smell that resembles a bar of soap, though it does not stay for long.

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.
