NYX Round Lipstick in POWER!

I don't know what it is about this lipstick, it could be because I have never owned a lipstick this color before or because I am tired of wearing the normal coral color in the summer, but either way and I am LOVING this lipstick!! It is the NYX round lipstick in the color POWER. 
I discovered this color through my June Myglam bag :) So thank you Myglam for sending this lipstick to me after I did not receive one in my bag that month. You can read about my June myglam mishap Here.

I have never used such an interesting tone of purple/pink on my lips before. I took one look at it and thought "Eh, Am I going to look right in this?" This shade is not for everyone, it is a little daring of a color, you know, something that Rihanna would wear, but somehow it works for me!
The formula is very creamy and the color is vibrant.

Staying Power

The staying power of this lipstick is great. It will last a good 4 to 5 hours as long as I am not talking a ton. 

Shade Range

The NYX round lipsticks come in 144 shades! WOW!! That would be an awesome collection right there now. ;)


-So many colors to choose from
-Very opaque color after 1 swipe onto the lips
-Affordable at $4 USD
-No problem with settling into lines
-Cute packaging with the color showing at the bottom of the tube


-Because the color is so Opaque it would be best to use a mirror when applying this lipstick to make sure the application is precise. Its definitely not a swipe and go type of color
-Feels moisturizing at first but as it wears it can feel a little drying. I usually use a lip quenching product under this 

When it comes down to it, this lipstick is great and I have been tossing it into my purse everyday since I got it. I will be purchasing other colors to try out. :)




  1. I love the NYX round lipsticks but find it do hard to choose since they ate so many of them. I've been looking for a color similar to this.

  2. I know what you mean, I can stare at the display forever trying to figure out what color to pick! I'm glad you like these lipsticks as well, they are great and so cheap. I would try this color out since you said you are looking for something close to it! ;)

  3. Such a great color! I don't normally wear lipstick but this just might inspire me! I found your blog on on TwoFashionGeeks' blog hop, and I'm following you with GFC. Would love it if you checked out my blog and followed back if you like it:
