NYX Round Lipstick in Spell Bound LSS 644: Review,Swatches and LOTD

Nyx and I have come a long way I started blogging by reviewing Nyx Round Lipstick in Ulysses only. Here's another lippy for all you Hot pink lovers :) Might make you Spell Bound :)
Company Claims:
NYX Round Lipstick covers the lips with rich color that smoothes and moistures lips with each application.
The mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvet-texture, saturated color and it resists wear and smudging.
A classic lipstick for all-year round, the lipstick is available in a jaw-dropping 144 shades.
NYX Round Lipstick is NYX's the best selling lipstick and one of the top sellers for NYX Cosmetics.

Price/Quantity: INR 395/- / 4gm

Ingredients:
Packaging:
It comes in a black casing,which if not very classy,isn't sub-standard either.The colour of the lipstick is visible at the bottom of the bullet case,which makes it attractive and easy to locate at the same time.

The Shade: Spell Bound
Now this is the most difficult part..Spell Bound is a very cool-toned neonish hot pink..pheww!!!
It makes my yellow toned skin wash out.Without a pink blush the obvious blue undertones will make me look dead :/

Texture:
Like all the other Nyx round Lipsticks,the formula is very creamy and moisturizing.The lipstick isn't frosty or sheer.Its a very very opaque and solid colour.This shade in particular is highly pigmented,with just a single swipe,you get a good idea and amount of the color.

My Take:
NYX Round Lipsticks are one of the most popular budget lipsticks around with an array of shades to choose from. Spell Bound is a super-duper creamy lippy..so much that it often does the job of a lip balm (reason why it melts in summers). The lasting power of this lippy isn't any better than other Nyx Round lippies.It lasts for about 3hrs with light meals. Its very pigmented and a boon to pigmented lips in that sense. But this shade is too blue (read cool) for my peachy-pale skin. I personally love the shade but I don't like how it looks on me. Its kinda demanding shade and would look good only if you have used your foundation,concealer and blush properly :/
(that's pretty much the reason why I had to click so many pics to give you gals a correct idea of the lippy and the one clicked in daylight is the actual shade)
And yes.. I tried applying it as a blush and it looked so-so beautiful :P

My Likes:
1. Super creamy,a boon for dry lips.
2. Huge variety of shades to choose from.
3. Rich pigmentation.
4. Quite affordable.
5. Lipsticks have a shade name.
6. The colour at the bottom of the lipstick case makes it easy to locate.
7. Good packaging for the price.(It clicks :)
8. Looks beautiful as a blush.


My Dislikes:
1. The shade..doesn't suit me well.
2. Have to be refrigerated in  summers.
3. Might bleed in summers (lip liners come handy)
4. Sold at higher prices in India.

Last Word:
Love the formula though the shade is a rocker for  cool/pink toned beauties.

Repurchase:
Not this shade but definitely a few round lippies.

Over All Rating: 3.8/5
