Review: NYX Pumpkin Pie & Paparazzi

NYX is probably one of the most popular cheap make-up brands today most especially their lipsticks. I have a confession to make, I bought a NYX lipstick out of curiosity many years back. I randomly chose an orange tone one and ended up buying "Femme". On my first try, I love how pigmented it was but I found the color too strong for me (or maybe I just did not appreciate it at that time) so I threw it away! little did I know that "Femme" was a popular one and was always out-of-stock! haha!

Nyx is available at purebeauty, serendra and thru online sellers. The usual price is 300 to 400 (around 7 to 9 dollars) each for the lipsticks but in the US it only costs around $2 each which reminds me, I should have my NYX haul on my next visit.

I recently bought 2 shades of lipsticks and I thought of sharing it here today. I was looking for a nice Pink and nude shade so I ended up buying Pumpkin Pie and Paparazzi.

Pumpkin Pie - Paparazzi
- Good color pay-off
- Affordable
- Locally available
- Hypoallergenic
- Cruelty Free (I'm trying my best to veer away from make-up companies who uses poor bunnies to test their products on, I just hope I can find a suitable mascara for my sparse and short lashes so I can be free of Maybelline)

- I find that the Pumkin Pie one has more moisture into it compared to the other nyx lipsticks that I have.
- The color bleeds & feather on me after sometime.
- some colors are drying.

Paparazzi - I like that it's not shimmery/frosted
Pumkin Pie- a nice nude shade
- Pumpkin Pie is a bit hard to apply. Apply a tiny amount of concealer or foundation on your lips then swipe on the lipstick. If you find this drying then try to apply it alone, blot then re-apply again. No need to apply lip balm (if you want this shade to show up!).

Bare Lips
Pumkin Pie
Pumpkin Pie + Paparazzi
I usually combine them since it makes me look like I'm wearing lip gloss too! haha! My lips are SO small that I can't wear dark shades even if I wanted to unless I want to make it look smaller.

What do you think? yay or nay? :)


  1. I prefer Paparazzi on you! It looks similar to Louisiana?

    1. Thank you! :) I think Louisiana is a bit more brighter than paparazzi.

  2. Oooh. Pumpkin pie is so nice!!!
