NYX Black Label Lipstick in Tribute to Marilyn: Swatch and Review

I own a couple of the NYX Round Lipsticks and I was wondering if there was a large difference between the Round Lipstick and the more expensive Black Label Lipstick that NYX makes. This retails for $7.50 on NYX's site.

I found the Round Lipstick and the Black Label Lipstick to be very similar in texture. Both lipsticks are soft and with the Black Label Lipstick it's got incredible pigmentation after one swipe.

It does have a sweet grape candy/Dimetapp scent to it. I personally don't like that scent in my lipsticks (if more companies made a minty lipstick I'd really get behind that) and if you're sensitive to scents or fragrances you really won't like it.

Here's a swatch of it. It's very much a berry red and if you do a thin layer/stain, the berry tones come out even more.


This swipe really shows off the berry tone to it. This did stain my arm a little in the swatch but it wasn't as bad on my lips. Be wary about it though!


Do you own any of the NYX Black Label Lipsticks?

  1. I want want want this! Gorgeous!


  2. Ah, yes I love the Black Label lipsticks. I did a review on it a few months back :D I really love their lipsticks a lot more than the round lipsticks but NYX in general is a brand I always go back to :D

  3. Wow, mega pigmentation going on! :O I don't own the black label.. i own several of the round type ones.. but i cant stand to use it because it dries out my lips and the smell gets annoying after a while.

  4. Oh wow I love that! I'm kind of a sucker for red lipstick. I don't own any NYX lipsticks, amazingly. haha and I know exactly what you mean about the grape/Dimetapp scent. That medicine made me hate everything grape flavored.

  5. can't wait to try this lipstick! I got it at the Beautylish event a few weeks ago! Its so pretty!

  6. Beautiful color! I don't have any NYX lippies but I've always wanted to try them. I think mark.'s lipsticks all have a light minty scent, it's really nice. I have one of their newer Lipclick lipsticks and I love it<3

  7. Red is gorgeous on you! I like NYX lipsticks for the most part.

  8. Wow that is so so pretty! Your lips are such a beautiful shape :)
