Howdy! It feels like I haven’t blogged in forever! I suppose on the internet, three days IS forever. Anyway, since one of my local Meijer stores has started carrying NYX, I have picked up a couple more of the round lipsticks, including this one in the shade Honey.
Honey is an opaque nude beige, definitely in the tan/brown spectrum. It’s very similar to Viva Glam Gaga 2, so if you missed out on that one, I recommend this one! Honey is a little darker on me than VGG 2. Revlon Smooth Nude is also similar, but definitely has more peach than brown in it.

Honey is very pigmented, creamy, and smooth. It doesn’t catch on the lips and I like the thin consistency of the NYX round lipsticks. The staying power isn’t the greatest, but at a $4 or less price point, I don’t see much to complain about there. Honey actually lasted pretty well on me while eating, but tends to wear off in the 2-3 hour mark otherwise.
I am a huge fan of nude lipsticks and that is what I tend to wear the most. My husband loves them on me, so of course that makes me want to wear them more as well!
Honey is very warm-toned, so I would say proceed with caution depending on what your skin tone is like. I think this nude would be amazing on someone with medium/olive skin especially! I can’t wait to wear this with a gold/bronze eyeshadow look, maybe pairing it with MAC’s Bare My Soul quad.
