NYX Cosmetics’ B52 Round Lipstick

Not a pinup-red (which the name seems to imply). Just a very nice, barely-muted cool red-mauve shade. For many folks, this might be an ideal “my lips but better” shade. For me, this is an excellent touch of color that's “just enough” for everyday looks. The shade reminds me of Buxom San Francisco. As with almost all NYX round lipsticks, this color applies very smoothly and doesn't feel heavy. Also as with all NYX round lipsticks I've tried, the color didn't last more than a few hours. Packing the tube along for regular touch-ups is par for the course with these lipsticks.
