I started off loving this product. So very pretty. But the colour fades very quickly and stains my lips pink. That would be okay if the lipgloss was pink. It's not. The gloss has a rather off putting scent and makes my lips feel rather strange -- a constant, unwanted reminder that I am wearing lipgloss. This morning I applied the gloss and soon afterwards I broke out in no less than three cold sores. Oh goody. I am throwing this lipgloss out along with the other NYX lipsticks and glosses I have. All have no staying power, are strongly scented, and irritate my lips. NYX has inexpensive products. In the case of their lipsticks/glosses, IMO I think they have sacrificed quality for economy.

The name Amethyst is misleading indeed, but actually the color is very nice, it reminds me of Mega Shine in Copper Penny. This one is pinky mauve too, and it has a beautiful golden sheen. It's not sheer and can go without a lipstick. Love it!

To my opinion NYX Round Lip Glosses are just as good as Mega Shine Lip Glosses. They are cheaper (mine were $1.50 each with international shipping), but you get less product too. Round glosses are somewhat less pigmented than Mega Shine, but many of the colors are unique and very beautiful.
Of 10 glosses I've got 3 have new scent, very similar to the Mega Shine. I believe this is their new formula. The rest glosses have lemon-citrus smell, not unpleasant to me, but I think the new one is much better.

I really like these round lipgloses from NYX. Some are more sheer and less shimmery, some are more pigmented. Amethyst is pigmented and shimmery. I ordered this online from a really bad swatch pictures. The formula of this is great. It lasts a long time, it's not sticky, it's smooth. What I don't like is the color. It's a light reddish color. So the name is very misleading. I was hoping for something more purple. So I'll continue to buy these lipglosses, but not this color.

NYX Amethyst l/g is a very pigmented mid tone reddish copper- like color. I do like the way it looks on my lips, but it is not as moisturizing as my MAC l/g. It's not sticky at all, which is great, and the color payoff is amazing. I am wearing this with MAC "O" l/s and Amethyst l/g on top. It looks great paired together. I'm not sure if I would repurchase this one again.
