NYX Round Lipstick Hermes


Hi All,

Today I am here with another NYX round lipstick, I have a few of them in my collection and love them to core. When it comes to lipsticks I can never have enough of neutrals and browns and always end up picking one whenever I come across a new shade.

My Take on NYX Round Lipstick Hermes :

Nyx round lipstick Hermes is a light brown color with pink undertones to it. On many skin tones it will come almost as a pinky nude brown and my lips but better shade. It reminds me a lot of Mac twig but is a tad bit more brown than twig. The color looks like a mauve brown color against my medium skin tone due to the cool tones it has. I do not recommend this color to extremely lighter skin tones as it will comes as a very dark brown color. It is a sober color and does not brighten up the face or stand out much, making it very appropriate for office wear as well. It also pairs up nicely with Smokey eyes.

These lipsticks have creamy opaque coverage, and are quite pigmented. I have pigmented lips and two swipes give a very opaque finish hiding the pigmentation. They are known for their creamy and buttery texture and this one is no exception. It is super creamy and glides very smoothly on my lips, I have never needed a lip balm underneath. It has a very creamy and glossy finish to it and feels comfortable on my lips without drying them. In summers it tends to bleed slightly and hence I have to use a lip liner under it to prevent that. It can melt very easily in the hot Indian weather, storing them in the refrigerator prevents that.

When used alone it stays on my lips for 2 to 3 hours and transfers every wear due to the creamy texture, but with a lip liner underneath it lasts for about 4 hours on me.

What I like about NYX Round Lipstick Hermes:

  • Nice MLBB color for medium to dark skin tones
  • Quite pigmented
  • Very creamy texture which glides smoothly
  • Very moisturizing
  • Easily available online and at Sephora India
  • Inexpensive

What I don’t like about NYX Round Lipstick Hermes:

  • Can melt or break easily
  • Needs to be stored in refrigerator
  • Staying power alone is very average

Overall Verdict:

The texture and the wide shade range is something that I love about these lipsticks, this is a good shade to have for medium to darker skin tones.
