This is my first NYX lip product and my hubs got this for me. He is getting good at selecting suitable shades for me. He know more about what suits me and what doesn't. So when it comes to decision time I let him decide [lazy me :)].
I'm not a big fan of lipstick because of my first experience with them. My very first was from street wear and i completely hated it as it was sticky. By the time i got back home, i could find all sort of dust, grime and what not on my lips (yuck!!!). Now my hatred towards them has slightly lessened because of this one.
It costs about Rs600/- for 5ml..I would say that the Indian price is high considering that this is just a drug store makeup product in the US. The ingredients are mentioned on the product, so this is plus for people who look deep in to the ingredients.
The packaging is solid looking and sturdy, above all its leak proof. Nobody likes it when liquid products leak out and get everywhere in the handbag right??!!! so this is definitely travel friendly. It comes with a doe foot applicator which is convenient for applying the lip gloss.
The lip gloss is almost free of fragrance. There is this mild fragrance that can be easily missed. So this is great for people with a sensitive nose. There is also flavor to this lip gloss and this is a huge relief to me. Most of the time i can put up with the annoying fragrance but not the yucky taste of it.
This lip gloss is not plum-ish like the shade name suggests. Its more of a Copperish brown tint. The lip gloss has loads of shimmer in it. The size of the shimmers is really really small and doesn't feel gritty on the lips.The shimmer does settle in to the fine lines if the lips are toooo pruney. The lip gloss applies smoothly and is slightly sticky to begin with and later on feels even less stickier.The lip gloss provides sheer to medium coverage. So ladies with really pigmented lips might not find this so useful. Otherwise, this lip gloss is great for everyday wear.
The lip gloss for 2 hours when not drinking or eating anything and leaves behind subtle sparkles. The lip gloss never claimed to last really long, so cant say this is a negative but will mention it anyway.
And an FYI:
This lip gloss is endorsed by Wayne Goss, who is an awesome guy makeup artist. I have posted a video of his in this weeks 'Monday Makeup Video' series. You can check it out here
The shimmer in the lip gloss is not over whelming so it can be worn during the day too. The gloss can also be used as a top coat on lipsticks as well. The lip gloss photographs really well and looks awesome too. It gives a wet shine like appearance and makes the lip look so sexy.
Spill proof and travel friendly packaging.
Can be worn during the day as well.
Shade name is misleading.
Indian price is high.
Not suitable for pigmented lips.
Lasts about 2 hours.
There is nothing about this product that makes me unhappy. So a thumbs up for this lip gloss.
