NYX Round Lipstick in Paris

I love pink lipsticks, simply because reds make me look older. Here's my latest acquisition:

NYX Round Lipstick in Paris

I know I'm sort of a late bloomer on NYX lippies as they have been in the Philippine market for a long time already (though, mostly these are sold online). Anyways, better late than never. So here it is:

When I first opened it, I thought of Revlon Colorburst in Mauve. Yes, they belong to the same color family but they are not exact dupes. Revlon CB in Mauve is more on the brown side, while this one is on the pink side. Before I got Paris, I was researching through the net and actually saw photos that it looks close to MAC Pink Nouveau. But then, it's not a dupe of PN. Sol of digitaltraincase must be right that PN is closer to NYX Louisianna than Paris. I'll try to have one in the future.

Here's aswatch on my NC-30 skin:
and a lip swatch: (forgive the bad lighting, please)

Overall, I like NYX Paris beacuse:
-affordable at Php 160
- nice shade of pink, though totally different from MAC Pink Nouveau (that is if you are into Barbie Pink Lips)
- not drying
-easy to find, just contact SOL of digitaltraincase

The only thing I do not like about it is the smell and the taste. Yes, it tastes something like plastic or whatever. Though the smell is more tolerable than that of NYX Round Lipgloss. The staying power is so-so.

Other than that, it's a steal!
