NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss




I came across the NYX brand after watching some make-up tutorials on Makeupgeek.com. I was curious and so at first I ordered 2 lipglosses. Unfortunately I’m in Europe and so I don’t have the luxury of being able to go to a store. I must say I’m really really happy with them, so much so that I have now got 10 different shades.

The tubes a pretty big and you do get a lot of product for your money. The tubes are 0.53 fl oz. For size comparison, MAC Lipglass tubes are 0.17 fl oz. and more than twice the price. They have them in 61 different shades. 

I love their consistency! They are not sticky, very smooth, they feel light on the lips and it feels slightly moistureising. The gloss doesn’t feel slippery either. Also, VERY VERY pigmented! They definitely wear well, and last for a few hours if you don’t eat/drink. The packaging is simple, with a bow detail on the cap. 

 The only real negative I have about these is the applicator. It’s a bent-angle sponge tip, which I find is a bit too big, so I’ve got to be careful. But it’s not a big deal really. 

 Some people say that the scent is unbearable. I like it, it’s a cherry like scent which I think is pleasant. No plastic nonsense here. I can also say that the scent is less noticeable once the product is on your lips, so if your not a big fan of the scent, it might not be a big deal for you.



Have you tried any of NYX’s glosses before? I’m curious, how do you feel about the scent?
