NYX BLL Pumpkin Pie Review

I've always been looking for coral lipstick ever since I got hooked into makeup. I love anything that is coral especially orange. Orange is my favorite color of all the colors out there. And I know that in some parts of the world, orange is always in trend during summer season just like last year and this year where this orange ruled again. I don't know what's really in color orange but it really attracts me. Let me tell you why I love orange.
Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It is said to increase the craving for food. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Lady luck's color is orange. (source)
The most flamboyant color on the planet! It's the color tied most this fun times, happy and energetic days, warmth and organic products. It is also associated with ambition. There is nothing even remotely calm associated with this color. Orange is associated with a new dawn in attitude. (source)
So now I know why I love orange. <3 

Back when I was in Manila, I was sent products by Dee Tan, owner of Skye Avenue. Dee sent me 4 items to review and so far I've only review the NYX Xtreme Lip Cream review out of the 4 items she sent me. Finally, I will be reviewing NYX's black label lipstick in the shade of Pumpkin Pie.

For the love of orange, I want to have orange lipstick too but I want it matte and not so creamy at all. So here I have this Pumpkin Pie which is a beautiful fiery reddish orange with gold shimmer. I'm not a fan of lipstick that has shimmers on them because I find it weird.

I compared this lipstick to Revlon's Lip Butter in Candy Apple which is a muted red shade but has undertone of orange. Comparing to Pumpkin Pie, its not that bright as to pumpkin where its very bright and out there.

Let's do the lip swatches!

My naked lips :)

Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple looks soft on my lips I mean I can wear this for everyday use. Its buildable from sheer to medium.

NYX BLL in Pumpkin Pie looks so bright on me and its just don't look on my skin tone. When you apply this on your lips, its very creamy but smooth. Its very pigmented also where with just one swipe you already can see the color.
I think this lipstick is suitable for fair skin because for medium-tan skin tone like me, it didn't compliment at all.

Final Verdict?

You might like it:
*if you are a fan of lipstick that has shimmer
*if you have fair skin tone
*if you like super pigmented lipstick
*if you want bright color
*if you are fair skin tone

You might not like it:
*if you are not a fan of shimmery lipstick
*if you are not into bright color
*if you find it too creamy
*if you don't like lipstick that has scent
*if you are looking for matte finish
*if you are med-tan skin tone

My rating: 1/5 stars

  1. is the black label lipstick better than the roundlipsticks? i want to try them too but they're a little more expensive.

    1. Hi Jel!

      I think both are better in my own opinion. I have RLL in Spellbound and 2 BLL from NYX. They have super smooth and creamy formulation but they dont last. :)

  2. I don't think coral shades are for me. I like how they look in the tube but not so much on my lips. Or maybe I just haven't found the right one yet :)

    1. Hi Aya!

      Same here! I love love coral shades but really haven't found "the one". This shades is totally not for me, specially on my skin tone.
