The Deal

NYX’s Thalia is a mauve-grey/pink-beige (depending on skin tone) sort of shade that would be an MLBB color for light to medium/tan skin tones. I bought this because a lot of websites said it is a dupe for Kylie Jenner’s lip color but sadly for me it wasn’t the case.

It does not show up on my lips as it does in the swatch below. On my lips, it shows up as exactly my lip color, just a hint more opaque and with shine. The good thing is that it isn’t lighter than my lip color because I hate how that looks.

Still, it goes really well with a smoky eye and a no-makeup look. I don’t dislike it at all. Read on for details.

The Good

This is a very pigmented lipstick and one swipe is enough to achieve opacity.

It is incredibly moisturizing. It has the moisturizing qualities of a really great lip balm. I love wearing this. The formula is fantastic.

It lasted for around 6 hours on me and faded a bit due to eating and drinking, after which I wiped it off. Left my lips baby-soft.

For a drugstore lipstick, the packaging looks chic.

It is inexpensive.

The Bad

The color on my lips isn’t exactly what the product looks like in the tube or on my arm. I think this would suit light to medium/tan skins only.

Application

I apply it straight from the tube like a heathen. (Lol jk.)

[EDIT] Tip: To bring out the colour of this shade, use a deep pink or berry liner under it. You can lightly fill in your lips with said liner. For me, this allows me to bring the shade on my lips closer to the colour in the tube.

Do I recommend this product?

The shade range is huge, it isn’t expensive, so I do recommend this range. This shade, like I said, will suit light to medium/tan skins.

I might repurchase a different shade in the future.

Availability

Available at NYX stands worldwide and online. I purchased mine off a Facebook page (so this isn’t a paid review).
