I had a sudden want for lipgloss and Nyx usually doesn't disappoint. I have 112 Natural (warm brownish-pink), 160 Tea Rose (mid-tone rose), and 163 Pink Rose (pinky coral with multi-colored microglitter).

Just to give an idea, my lips are full and very pigmented (upper lip is much darker than my lower lip). I can wear Natural on it's own but I wanted it to be more vibrant so I put a little concealer on my lips to lighten it--same thing for Tea Rose. Pink Rose, on the other hand, would have to be worn with lined lips (I tried it with Nyx lip liner in 858 Nude Pink) and it is PERF but is otherwise kind of disappointing. Kinda makes me sad because it really is such a beautiful color when swatched but is super sheer on its own. I'm trying to be optimistic about it and just wear it by itself in the summer.

I hear a lot of people rave about 115 African Rose (which is a very vibrant deep-purple fuchsia with blue shimmer) but I don't think Ulta carries it (I could have sworn I've seen that color there before though). I will definitely have to order it.


This is a lipgloss so I don't expect it to stay on for super long, and I'm fine with reapplying. It does have a smell that is off-putting to some (to me, it smells like what a cherry Jolly Rancher tastes like if that makes sense lol) but it's gone once applied. These lipglosses are good for a sheer pop of color and could be AWESOME on top of a lipstick or lip liner. If you want a lipgloss that has a flat color (with no shimmer or glitter), I would go with Nyx Butter Gloss (another favorite of mine). Hope this helps!

I have clear, color 103. This is great for a clear, shiney lipgloss. I buy this from almost every brand - MAC, Bobbi Brown, Sephora, Wet & Wild. This is a really shiney finish. Sticky as expected but decently long wearing.

I removed 1 lippy because the taste/smell is so gross! Smells like Luden Cherry cough drops to me & makes me somewhat nauseas :(

This is a really nice, solid lipgloss. I own two and they are both great, despite having completely different shades and finishes. "Pink Nude" is a favorite lipgloss of mine because it is a lovely pale pink and it's awesome both by itself or for topping other lipsticks. Anyways, the formula is smooth, emollient, not tacky at all, and moisturizing. It feels really nice on the lips and would never emphasize dry patches. Sometimes, it does emphasize the lines in the lips though which is part of why I took off a lippie. The other reason is because it doesn't last very long. If you eat or drink at all, this is gone. It lasts about 2 hours on me and most lip products last a long time on me. I think this might be normal for lipgloss, but I'm comparing it to my favorites which last up to 6 hours. But all in all, this is a really great, solid lipgloss. I definitely recommend it.

I bought this gloss in the 122 natural, and it has ended my search for the perfect natural colored lip gloss. It gives a nice dewy, but not shimmery look. I love it!

Love these!! Just bought a pack of 5 for $19 here in Australia. Awesome colours. Love how glossy and lively they are, but they don't seem sticky. Love, love!

I got the shade "French Kiss" this morning at the drugstore on my way to work. Put it on, and it stayed put for about an hour and a bit. Once I had my first cup of coffee, the color faded, but it was still prominent enough to be noticeable. Reading over some of the other reviews, I tend to agree that the shade is a bit on a shimmery side, but if you lay it on with a light hand, then it comes off looking quite lovely .... a dominating pink note with gold undertones; seems to work great with my olive complexion. I would probably buy a few more shades if I had the opportunity :)

PROS: This lip gloss is the perfect accessory to have in your purse, especially when you're running out the door. The color payoff is great, but not too overpowering. The product itself is super moisturizing, and makes your lips look very smooth.

CONS: The formula is not extremely long-lasting, so you will have to reapply a few times throughout the day, but given the cheap price, I still think it's a great product.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Very affordable and cute lip glosses, and quite a wide range of colors to choose from. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a cheap but decent lip gloss.

i have only the shade sugar pie. not sure if its just this shade, but whenever i wear this, the smell of it makes me nauseous. its soooo sickly sweet its disgusting. also, the staying power could be better. otherwise the packaging, color selection and color payoff is great.
