Today’s review is going to be on the NYX Round Lipstick Milan 621. I have always been into trying out different lipstick ranges from each brand and this was one of the first lipsticks I ordered from NYX to try out along with the Flower shade. NYX Round Lipstick Milan 621. So how did it fare out?

How Did NYX Round Lipstick Milan 621 Work For Me?

The NYX Round Lipstick Milan comes in a sleek black packaging with black cap. The difference between the NYX packaging and the other usual lipsticks is the bottom part of the body where there is a clear plastic inside which is the shade of the lipstick. At first I thought, it was actually part of the lipstick but when I accidently dropped it, the plastic came apart and it is actually a dough like material colored to match the lipstick shade.

Coming to the actual lipstick, the NYX Round Lipstick Milan is a muted dusty pink shade and has a very creamy texture. While it glides on the lips and doesn’t settle in the fine lines, I find the fragrance to be overpowering and within a few minutes of inhaling it, the fragrance irritates and hurts my throat. I have the NYX soft matte lip creams and I wish the fragrance in this is as subtle as it is on that range.

Once applied the lipstick stays on for around 4 to 5 hours which is ok if you are going out for a short while but you will need to take the lipstick with you for touch ups. That is where I find another problem; the NYX Milan Round Lipstick being very creamy tends to melt and break and that combined with a hot summer weather, makes me think twice and most of the time, I skip it because of this reason alone. This shade being a neutral will suit fair to medium skin and might wash out darker skin tones so do try it out before buying. Overall, the NYX Round Lipstick Milan is an affordable lipstick that you can use everyday and at $4, it is one of the best drugstore dupe for MAC Cosmo Lipstick.
