NYX Black Label Lipsticks

The NYX Black Label Lipstick is one of my favorite lipsticks under $10. They feel light and are quite moisturizing. They apply smoothly without being slippery. These deserve a lot more love than the famous NYX Round lipsticks and are the real deal because they are far better in quality. Refer to this post if you haven't seen it yet. It compares the Black Label Lipsticks and the Round lipstick: I would compare these Black Label to some of my higher-end brand lipsticks but you won't pay high prices for these.

One thing I don’t really like about this lipstick is the grape scent. Fortunately, the scent quickly fades after you apply and doesn’t leave a funny taste behind. Another con is that this lipstick is hard to find in stores and you will have better luck on or if you want to look up their entire line. The swatches on these websites are not very helpful or true to color either but will give you a general idea.  

I think that packaging is very cute with black lace designs printed on the cap but it’s bulkier than the average lipstick. The formula feels similar to MAC’s luster lipsticks but are pigmented like MAC’s crème sheen. Some of the Black Label lipsticks are frosty and similar to MAC’s frost lipsticks. The following lipsticks were part of my recent Cherry Culture haul. I do have a few more in my stash but I will post those later.

NYX Black Label Lipstick Bling is a beigy light pink lipcolor that leaves a nice sheen to your lips. This shade would be flattering on most skin tone for a daytime look. If you like neutrals and pinks, I think you will like this shade.

NYX Black Label Lipstick Poem is a blue based pink with a little hint of lilac in the mix. It doesn’t have any glitter or shimmers and will leave satin sheen to your lips. This is actually a pretty wearable pink, at least for me it is.

NYX Black Label Lipstick Hot Pink is a bright fuchsia pink lipcolor with no glitters or shimmers What I like is that it actually looked better than I expected because the color from the tube seemed a little intimidating. It’s actually more wearable than it looks, which was a nice surprise.  It leaves a satin and glossy finish on your lips and makes them look lush and juicy.

NYX Black Label Lipstick Orchid is my new favorite shade. It’s a toned down fuchsia purplelish lipcolor with a translucent blue sheen and reminded me a lot of MAC’s Violetta lipstick. I will compare the two lippies in a separate post.

NYX Black Label Lipstick Cherry doesn’t quite look like a cherry color in the tube but somewhat does on the lips. I was expecting this lipstick to be more on the cool side but it’s leaning more on the warm tone because of the hint of brown and orange in the mix. For being such a rich and darker color, it applies slightly on the sheer side with a glossier finish.

Thoughts and comments? Which color would you wear?


  1. Your photos and descriptions have convinced me to order Bling. Thank you! :)

  2. This is very helpful in helping decide which colors to get from NYX. Great pictures.

  3. I am a big fan of these lipsticks, I need to get these shades! I love them all :)

  4. I couldn’t agree more with you regarding the quality of this lipstick brand. It is my favorite because aside from being affordable, the shades are lovely! :)
