WHOA!!! This is my first and only NYX gloss so far (LOVE the round lipsticks!), and I really did not expect this much pigmentation and richness of color. The application is very true to what you see in the tube, which is a bright coral pink with a pearl finish. Let me emphasize BRIGHT. The formula is very emollient and comfortable, as well as reasonably non-sticky. It doesn't last more than two to three hours, but glosses never last on me anyway, so take that bit of critique for what it's worth. The tube is very similar to NARS glosses--slim, long and rectangular with a plain black cap. (I draw this comparison as NYX imitates the packaging of several HE brands such as NARS, MAC and MUFE.) Based on this color alone I wouldn't say it has the glassy shine of a NARS gloss, nor the shimmery depth. If you look closely at a NARS gloss, you can see that the shimmer has a multifaceted color range, whereas NYX's shimmer is very one-dimensional. Other, more minor quibbles: the sponge-tip applicator is attached to the shaft at an extremely acute angle, so as you pull it from the tube it gets a LOT of product that you have to scrape off. The other thing is the fragrance; I don't know what it's supposed to smell like, but the result is cherry cough syrup. GROSS. The bottom line is that this is a DS gloss with the price of a DS gloss. It's okay, but it's not going to make me stop reaching for Buxom and NARS glosses.
