My take on NYX Round Lipstick Syclia:

From what I noticed all the NYX round lipsticks are named on geek mythology and this one is no different. Syclia is a warm slightly dark brown color with orange undertones almost like a terracotta color. When I had first seen this one I thought it would be a good medium brown lipstick from what it looked in the tube but it comes of slightly darker and more orange based against my medium skin tone, and I generally don’t like going for darker shades and I like applying it with a lighter hand.

But the color would be absolutely gorgeous for darker skin tones it would come more like a neutral color for them There is not frostiness or shimmer it has a creamy slightly glossy finish.  I don’t suggest this particular shade to lighter skin tones as it will come out as a much darker brown. This particular color is certainly not one of my favorites and I don’t reach for it often.

These lipsticks have creamy opaque coverage, and are quite pigmented. Two swipes cover my pigmented lips very well. The texture is definitely my favorite part. It is very creamy smooth and glides like butter, there is no need to use a lip balm before applying it. It does not settle into lines much. But due to the soft texture, it is prone to melting very easily hence I avoid carrying it around in the handbag and during warmer months storing it in the refrigerator helps in that case.

It stays for around 3 hours on me but with sipping water in between and meals it fades and the creamy texture transfers a lot, which requires frequent reapplication.

What I like about NYX Round Lipstick Syclia:

  • Good pigmentation covers my pigmented lips well
  • Glides very smoothly on lips
  • Does not settle on my lips
  • There are so many shades to choose from you can’t go wrong
  • Very moisturizing
  • Easily available online and at Sephora
  • Inexpensive

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

  • Very much prone to melting and breakage
  • Transfers everywhere
  • Low staying power needs frequent reapplications

Overall Verdict: NYX Round lipstick Syclia is a pretty terracotta brown color, if you are fond of slightly darker browns then this is a good one to go for, I recommend this lipstick for medium to darker skin tones.

Wise She Rating: 3.5 /5
