This color reminds me of L'Oreal's Golden Grape Lipstick in gloss form. It is a pretty rosey purple gloss. Not very pigmented per se but I don't mind that in an everyday color.

It doesn't get sticky but it can feel a little dry at times which is weird because it is a gloss.

This is a deep plum color with gold undertones in it. Don't be fooled by the deep color in the tube as it appears a bit sheer on the lips. You have to apply a lot of product to get the desired color it looks in the tube. The product has no taste or smell and texture is just right being its not sticky or too thin with a nice shine. Not a ton of product in the tube but great color for fall/winter or if you just want a bold, dark lip :))) Glad to have it in my collection.

Golden Prune is a deep mauve plum with golden sheen, on the lips it looks softer and lighter, like berry. I usually don't wear plums, but this one is very good! It's not too harsh or too cold, and I 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.

Yay, this is a no-brainer. The formula is thin and a little runny, but not sticky and not too messy on the lips if applied carefully. The colour is a deep, dusty rose shot through with ultra-fine glitter, not at all chunky.
The applicator is the doe-foot type and you get a generous amount of product (unlike the BB brush in l/g for example).

I have a special set of cosmetics that I call "supermarket runs" because they last just long enough for me to run a few errands before they wear off. This would be one in that category. Not that it's not decent quality, it is...it's just NYX glosses are not known for their staying power in a gloss.

I think these are new to CherryCulture [$2 a pop, Say Whaaat?! Heck Yeah!]. I could be wrong but oh my goodness you guys! NYX is awesome as always! I LOVE this stuff. Like all of NYX's products... they go on true to color. It glides on SO smooth and instead of just coating your lips in sticky colored gooeyness.... this conditions SO GOOD as well. This is the exact kind of lipgloss formula I had been searching for! It's honestly just like their Lipgloss with MegaShine... but a little better and not AS heavy [I think]. Still with the same amount of color payoff. This is a sort of dark, plum/berry color with a hint of shimmer to it. I have another in Whipped and for some reason, Whipped smells like an Orange Dream icecream pop. I can not detect ANY smell to this one for whatever reason. I love it though! Especially for $2!! Check it out!

Edit: The packaging didn't bother me at first, but it can be hard to deal with at times. As I attempt to take the applicator out, the stopper pops out, which makes my wand overloaded with product. So sad!

I don't use this anymore because of the afwul packaging. I'm scared to open it in fear of a ton leaking out as I close it. Such a shame.
