Review & swatch: Eros and Tea Rose NYX Round Lipstick

And because every summer I go  through a lipstick phase that is almost never ending :))) I got myself 3 NYX Round Lipsticks: Femme,Tea Rose and Eros. About Femme you can read in the previews post (review and lip swatches) and today is time for Eros and Tea Rose. 

Eros is very bright and bold with lots of attitude while Tea Rose is  a nude, shy, everyday to go lipstick color. Eros: Bright, very close to a true red but warm, toward orange-red. Eros is a great color dupe for Armani Rouge D'ármani 401 , MAC Lady Danger and Revlon Fire and Ice. 

The texture is creamy, it has a satin semi- matte finish with great pigmentation but with the same soap bad taste /smell like Femme. Definitely it needs to be worn with lip liner to prevent feathering and bleeding around the corner of the mouth .This is a very inexpensive product that imparts your lips with a glamorous red but it stains the lips and also can transfer on your teeth. My advice is to apply Eros with a lip brush and to blot it with a paper tissue before you step out the door.

Eros, needs the tissue and powder trick to make it last hours. It comes off very easily when eating or drinking. For a killer hot look, pair this lipstick with a neutral eye or a classic black eyeliner and a black /red dress. Red lips say vamp, vixen but also say confidence and glamour. I am a huge fan of red lipsticks

 It does dry out lips and to wear such a bright color you really need to have perfect soft smooth lips, other way it will just look bad. I do not find it moisturizing, it's difficult to control and it stains lips. I love the vibrancy, the texture and the creaminess but I don't like how it smells at all, I rate it with 3 stars out of 5.

Tea Rose has a nude purple-ish tone and I think would make it great for Fall or better described as a medium dusty, cool-toned rose which will look great on most skin tones.
Very wearable, very pretty and soft great to tone down a smokey eye or complement a natural day to day look. Nude lips say fresh, innocent but also counter-culture, rock n' roll and free spirit. Choosing the ideal shade of nude can be just as tricky as selecting a good red.

Tea Rose is a great color dupe for MAC Fanfare. It doesn't stain my lips or dry them out, and it's very creamy, even more creamy than Femme or Eros.

Tea Rose, doesn’t accentuate lip lines, neither settles in the lines and it does not have the chemical smell that Eros and Femme has. It comes off very easily when eating or drinking, something that all NYX Round Lipsticks has. To help these lipsticks last I usually wear a lip liner underneath. Proper exfoliation is required because it seems to maximize the smallest flakiness of lips. I have been using this lipstick a lot and I think it deserves 4 beauty stars out of 5.


It can definitely be worn to work and it makes my face seem brighter. I love the fact that is not a nude Barbie-esque :))) and it does not give a ashy tone to my skin.

Red Lips Vs. Nude Lips.Which  one do you prefer?

This is not a sponsored post and none of these products were gifted to me. All opinions are my own and I genuinely like and use these products.


  1. Cred ca cel mai bine iti sta cu cel rosu, great pictures and info!

  2. Eros lipstick and sexy owner! Nice review:)

  3. Cred ca ti se potriveste foarte bine cel rosu! Sunt si eu curioasa si vreau sa incerc aceste rujuri.

    1. Raportul calitate/pret este ok . Nu sunt foarte rezistente datorita faptului ca sunt extrem de cremoase si moi insa sunt foarte pigmentate ,iar cu un lipliner in acceasi nunata le poti prelungi rezistenta .
