I purchased six of these glosses off eBay for a very good price, so basically there's not much I can complain about. However, I think I wasn't the wisest at choosing the colors. The ones I bought are Lollipop, Perfect, Beige, Rust, Natural and Candy Shop. Lollipop doesn't work with my skin tone (gloss has an unappealing orange undertone), and Perfect doesn't really have an effect. Perfect contains a decent amount of shimmer but it's not over the top. At the same time it gives me no color so I regret choosing it.
I must say, though, I'm very impressed with all the other colors I have. if it weren't for the scent, I'd give these glosses 5/5. They're not too sticky and they have a decent lasting power. Contains good pigmentation too! For the price, it's definitely worth purchasing. Beige and Candy Shop are my favorite. Beige is actually pink (weird, I know) but it's very flattering, and Candy Shop is a coral-y color... looks like candy. I love it.
Long lasting. Non-sticky. Nice colors, love Pink Frost and African Queen (fuchsia-burgundy). A little heavy but good quality for 4.99. I would suggest to get them at ULTA on a BOGO sale. Definitely will continue to buy them. Love NYX products!
I'm not a huge fan of lip gloss at all, but I love these! They aren't sticky even in the least (something I hated about MAC glosses), they are moisturizing, and have great pigmntation. I have 2 right now- I believe Natural and some nudey pink with silvery shimmer. I find the feel to be similar to a lip blam rather than a gloss. No one wants sticky, gooey, gross greasy gloss lips. Won't being scaring guys away from kisses with these awesome NYX glosses on your lips! Love love love. I'll be getting more for sure. As with all NYX products, what you get for the price you pay is just amazing.
I have this in 122 Natural and 155 Perfect. These are currently my favorite lipglosses. They feel very nice on and they last a long time. Natural, as the name implies, is the perfect natural shiny nude shade that I go to for everyday wear. Perfect is great at night or when I just want to soften my lip color a little and get gorgeous, shiny, sexy, full looking lips. I love the oversized applicator and the smell grew on me after a while. They're cheap and fantastic. I will absolutely be purchasing more of these!
One of the best lipglosses i have ever tried! The color payoff is amazing and lasts for hours so i have no need to reapply. It's not sticky, goopy, or heavy feeling. The only disadvantage is that it smells like cherry medicine but it goes away once you put the cap back on. Will definetly repurchase.
I hate the applicator...it is horrible for putting the gloss on, it bends and I have to keep reapplying the gloss just to get enough on my lips.
THE BEST LIP GLOSS I HAVE EVER USED IN LIFE. No matter the color, pigmentation is always great, never too sheer. Color is great with just one light coat or with several, and so is the consistency. It's smooth with just one coat, and doesn't get stickier, gooier, or grossly slippery or heavy-feeling with more coats. I personally prefer no more than one coat, and it's never inadequate or dry-feeling! The gloss itself is the perfect feel on the lips, never sticky, gooey, slippery/slimey, etc. The formula never migrates, whether I wear it on naked lips or on top of balm or a lipstick, (but it does last longer on top of a balm! yay!), so there's never the accumulation of formula at the corners of my lips, or inner rim, and never the stringy effect I've gotten with other glosses like Rimmel's vinyl gloss. The price is cheap considering the amazing quality, so I am definitely loyal to NYX mega shine glosses for life... save your money and time from trying out any of the other drugstore brands, or even high-end ones, because this one is hands-down better. My personal favorites are Taupe, Natural (my HG), and Beige (all mattes). The staying power is great compared to other glosses I've used, I mean I can go salsa dancing (heavy breathing, twirling around, etc.) and the stuff is shiny and pigmented for at least a couple hours. Again, though, stays much longer on a balm. Can't compliment this stuff enough...
This gloss smells really bad--like cherry medicine or something like that. I just can't get over the smell even for the cheap price or nice colors.
today is was playing with my lipglosses trying to figure out how to sort and store them and i stumbled upon something...
My NARS pillowtalk was mixed in my with NYX glosses in my low end makeup drawer and while i pulled it out I noticed a few things.
First, the packaging for both products is pretty similar though i slightly prefer NYX's wand.
Secondly the pigmentation is so similar. While I don't have a color dupe to pillowtalk, I swatched NYX's beige next to it and the high pigment payoff was there and the texture was nearly identical, but NARS is slightly smoother here.
Thirdly, they both last a similar amount of time.
Ok yes NYX glosses are stinky, and obviously I prefer NARS here, but at least I can get six of them for every NARS gloss I buy.
NARS gloss has a more grown up color selection and finishes and for that reason i will be back to try more colors and to repurchase pillowtalk (my current HG)
I will keep trying other NYX colors, you really cant go wrong for the price and they completely destroy any other drugstore brands on quality. Bottom line, NYX is a GREAT buy and if you are craving a color outside of your comfort zone, this is a great way to try it out without hating yourself if it sucks.
I have LaLa, Lollipop,Maroon, Natural, Frosted beige, Hot fudge, candy shop, beige and nutmeg.
I LOVE THEM. The are comparable to mac's lipglass but a little less thick. They have a good texture and are highly pigmented. At my local beauty store they cost about 2.99 or 3.99 although I have seen them range in price from 1$ to 5$.
The only thing I don't like about them is you have to reapply more often than mac, but for the price... who cares? Also, you should exfoliate your lips before you wear them because these are the types of glosses that do not get rid of dead skin.
