ALAD Day 14: NYX Round Lipstick in Milan

The blogging community always raves about the NYX Round Lipsticks. They're super affordable and they come in a HUGE variety of shades. Once again, I opted for the neutral, everyday wearable shades.

The shade I picked up was 621 Milan. It was really hard looking at swatches online and on other people's lips, trying to find the best shade. Milan is a nice dusty pinkish shade. It's on the neutral side with just a hint of rosey pink. The top of the cap shows the shade name and number. 

It's weird because when I swatched it on my hand, it came out a darker berry shade, but when I put it on my lips the color is a lot more sheer. It is buildable to get a darker color, but I like the color it produces with just 1 swipe.

For the price of these lipsticks, I actually really like the packaging. It's just a simple black tube with their label on the front. It also sports a clear plastic on the bottom that shows you the shade. The shade is 100% accurate. I love it! It makes looking and storing my lipsticks so much easier.

Don't ever trust the website shades, they are no where near the actual color.

Overall: For the price, these are worth it and there are a lot of shades to choose from. If you can't find one flattering shade then you're crazy! I only have about 3 or 4 of these lipsticks because my local stores don't carry the brand, but I love them and definitely recommend them to other people. I do think you still have to prep your lips and add balm before you apply or else it does settle into chapped lips.
