NYX Gala Round Lipstick 

NYX Gala Round Lipstick ($4) is described as a soft blue-toned pink with shimmer. It’s a very light pink, and applies a bit lighter than it looks in the tube. It’s slightly too light for me, but it’d work great for mixing, and when worn alone it’d look best on fair, light and light-medium skin tones.

Sometimes light colored lipsticks can emphasize cracks and dryness on the lips and Gala does just that. If I want to wear Gala, I have to make sure to apply a good lip balm and scrub my lips to remove any flakes. Even after I’ve exfoliated my lips really good, it still shows a little dryness.

I really like NYX Round Lipsticks — they are great for the price, but not every shade is created equal. Some are very pigmented and apply great, while some (like Gala) take several coats for opaque color and can apply uneven. The majority of the Round Lipsticks I’ve purchased have been pretty good.

It’s still overall a very pretty light pink, and if you’re a lover of soft baby pinks, you might really enjoy this lipstick. I’d personally skip because of the formula.

  1. I LOVE NYX round lipsticks. They have such a vast collection and they're generally pretty good when it comes to formula. I've found a few misses like Gala here. The colour is pretty, but like you said, not worthwhile if you have to put so much effort into wearing it.

  2. This looks as if it'd be similar to MAC's Cut a Caper in the tube, but looks waaaay more blue-based on your lips. Crazy how a lipstick can look a certain way in the tube and completely different on the lips.
