NYX Black Label Lipstick Review: Brick

Finally a NYX Lipstick that I love! Well, as you might read in a review of mine how bummed I was about the NYX Round Lipstick in Stella that I ordered a few weeks back. I decided not to give up on NYX and their lip products so I went ahead and gave their Black Label Lipstick a try. I was going to place an order for two shades but after experiencing such a disappointment with Stella I thought I might as well just order one... just in case I don't like the formula again.

Boy was I surprised at how well this sexy lip color works! This is NYX Black Label Lipstick in Brick. It is a very warm red orange shade that is very creamy and pigmented. Unlike Stella which was splotchy and just a blah, this is absolutely amazing. It is a creme finish lipstick and I am very happy about that since I am not fond of glittery and frosty lips. I very much prefer my matte and creme lippies. This is so perfect for summer and spring. I can already see myself wearing this a lot. This compliments my skin tone so well too! And I believe that this would also be beautiful with my tan skin in the summer. 

The packaging is also really nice since the bottom shows the color of the product and the top of the cap states the name. This is very convenient for storage purposes. The design for the case is also very pretty and classy with black and gunmetal lace design. 

I don't want to drag this into a long review so overall this is a huge leap from the only NYX Round Lipstick I have. Now that I am absolutely loving this lippie I might start to build up my collection of NYX Black Label Lipsticks instead of my Estee Lauder Lipstick Collection. Oh, with that said, I think the formula for the Black Label Lipstick is very comparable to the Estee Lauder Lipsticks which is very rich, creamy and pigmented.

For those who have found Round Lipsticks to be a miss or for those who love the Round Lipsticks but is looking for an upgrade, I highly recommend the Black Label Lipstick.
