NYX Round Lipstick | Castle - Review + Swatch

NYX Round Lipstick in Castle, $4.00
One of the things I love most about the warmer months is that it's the perfect time to pull out all of your wildest and wackiest lip colors. Whether it's brighter hues of your favorite shades, or a rainbow of greens and blues, when the heat goes up it's like a license to really experiment with your makeup. And if you are the type of person who loves to try all the new trends on a budget, there's no better brand to go to than NYX Cosmetics.

I love a good purple lipstick, so when I spotted NYX's Round Lipstick in Castle at my local Ulta it was a given that it would be coming home with me. Castle is a medium-toned lavender purple with a frosted, metallic sheen. Creamy and super pigmented, it feels comfortable on the lips whilst still packing a punch of color. It doesn't last through daily activities like eating and drinking, but it is so pretty and feels so good to apply that I don't think that anyone will be bummed by giving this beauty a touch up!


Castle is a dreamboat of a lipstick and definitely one of the more unique shades in my collection. It reminds me of the 90s and what we imagined makeup would look like in the millennium (Willennium, anyone?). I can easily see my pre-teenage self picking this sort of color up in an attempt to be trendy. At least now I've got the maturity and confidence to actually pull it off! Because of its frosted nature and cool lean, I think that Castle will look best on cool-toned pale and dark skin most vs. medium tones and skin with a warmer lean.

If you're looking for a unique lavender lipstick to add to your collection, NYX's Round Lipstick in Castle is definitely one to consider. Especially if you're not afraid of rocking the metallic, frosted look. It's also a great throwback alternative to the 90s brown lip look that is taking the beauty world by storm. Perfect for those who want to be on trend with a twist!

Would you wear frosted, lavender lipstick? What is your favorite 90s beauty throwback?



  1. I can't really wear this type of shade, but my gosh this is so pretty! And I LOVE all NYX lipsticks! They just recently started selling NYX at my CVS and I was so excited! XO :)

    1. Aw, I bet you'd look fab in this color, Julie! You've got the personality to pull anything off. NYX really does make some of the best budget lipsticks on the market. I'll have to keep a look out for it at CVS now! Thanks for the heads up, love. xx

  2. Love this colour! I recently dyed my hair purple so I'm on board with this colour <3

    1. It would go so well with your purple hair! It would truly be the perfect match. If you decide to pick this one up, I'd love to see a photo of you wearing it with your new hair! xx
