Review: NYX Black Label Lipstick in "Natural"

♫ B1A4 - 이게 무슨 일이야 (What's Going On)

NYX Black Label lipstick
After my previous NYX Black Label Lipstick review post, I was really tempted to get more colours from the range but unfortunately, my local Sephora doesn't stock the Black Label range. (ーー;) Therefore, I was really excited when Blanc to Noir once again offered to let me review some items from their online shop. Of course, I just had to get another NYX Black Label lipstick to try, ngehehehe (≧∇≦)

NYX Black Label lipstick in "Natural"
This time around, instead of picking my usual pink or red shades, I opted for a nude colour, so I chose #167 Natural. I had read quite a few reviews saying that this was a really great, almost perfect, nude shade of lipstick. I hardly have nude lipsticks in my collection, so I decided this colour would be a nice addition.

NYX Black Label lipsticks come in a squarish plastic tube with black lace patterns on its silvery-grey cover, similar to the design on the box. It has a clear base showing the colour of the lipstick inside, making it easy to identify individual shades.

BLL 167 Natural
A creamy, dreamy lipstick with a velvety smooth finish and hyper-glamorous shades for every look and every inclination. NYX's Black Label Lipstick has rich emollient properties that ensure that the color glides on and envelopes your pout at the same time.

The shade Natural (cream formula) is described as a "neutral pink-beige" on the NYX website. In the tube, it looks very much like a brown lipstick, but once applied on the lips, it does indeed show up as a pretty beige colour with a hint of pink.

Below is a half-lip swatch of the lipstick under sunlight:

And these are the full lip swatches of the lipstick:

Honestly, I think that's I've found my perfect nude lipstick in this NYX Black Label lipstick in Natural! ヽ(;▽;)ノ It's the perfect MLBB (my lips but better) shade, and is nude enough to pair with smokey or colourful eyes, yet doesn't give me the dreaded 'corpse lips'.

The formula of the lipstick is great - creamy, opaque and moisturizing, with a yummy grape soda scent that I like. (^▽^) It's both suitable for days when you want to keep your makeup simple, or times when you want to balance out that smoldering smokey eye with nude lips.

I also used this lipstick in my See By Chloé blog post photos, where I had on some fiercer darker eye makeup. ;)
✓ Pros: Huge variety of colours available, opaque colour, moisturizing, velvety sheen finish, easy to identify individual shades from lipstick base.
✗ Cons: Plastic packaging is very light, has grape soda scent that might not appeal to all, not easily found in Malaysia (NYX is available in Sephora Malaysia but with limited products).

You can buy the NYX Black Label lipsticks from Blanc to Noir here, along with lots of other NYX products. Their June 2013 special is 30% off NYX products, so do check it out!

In ur pic it still look like pink eh... I also look for a nice nude lipstick... I tried nyx nude lipstick on my lip not sure if it is the same range but it does not look good on my lips... Lol

LauraLeia said...

Cindy: It looks pink coz it matches (almost)perfectly with my natural lip colour. :D It's especially obvious in the middle full lip swatch. I've never tried the usual NYX Round Lipsticks, but I read reviews saying that this Black Label range is much more moisturizing. :)

Mizu said...

Nice color :)
Nyx lippies are very pigmented in colors but do it broke/melt when it's too hot?

Mine were left in car and it melts and some are broke too...haha

Nabilah Ismailjee said...

That lipstick suits you really well! :)

LauraLeia said...

Mizu: So far I've never experienced lipsticks melting, but then again, I try to keep them out of sunlight/hot places. The only lipstick that ever broke was the Illamasqua one that I reviewed, and that one is well-known to break easily, judging from a lot of reviews, lol.

Nabilah: Thank you dear ^^
