Bought 3 of these, 2 beige and 1 salsa and I really like both. Beige is similar to mac's mehr lipstick but it's a glossy color and salsa is a frosty baby pink but the frost is at a minimum and resembles a lipstick more than a gloss but I like them both and would repurchase and now I want dolly pink even though hot pinks aren't really in that much this year but imma bring it in lol.

I wish there was a "maybe" option for whether i would purchase this again lol

Pros:
cute packaging
good applicator (doe foot but also slanted)
non sticky/moisturizing formula (feels more like a balm than a gloss IMO)
good amount (11 ml--my butter gloss has 8)

Cons:
short shelf life. only 6 months. my butter gloss says 12 months
contrary to popular belief, this shade isn't universally flattering. i wouldn't say it looks bad on me but it has a strong cool undertone, and is more purple-y than i expected. this shade would look best on fair skinned people with cool undertones (i have light-medium skin with warm undertones)

there's also a strong cherry smell. i personally like it but i know a lot of people have issues with strong scents.

where are people getting this for $5 and less? it's $9 in Canada :(
i actually wanted to get the shade Tea Rose but couldn't find it anywhere and this one looked kind of similar so i went with it. I think this is lighter and more cool-toned.

i want to try other shades from this collection since i like the formula.

This is a pretty medium pink shade. I wear it often but I'm not crazy about the formula. It's a little thick for me.

Beige -- you're such a beautiful mid-tone pink! It leans towards the cooler range of pinks. I already have you. All I "need" is Chanel Beige (fragrance) and a good quality beige trench coat and that's all the "beige" I'll ever want.

I think in general, NYX lip glosses are good value for money when you find a hit and this is definitely one of them. This one's thick but not too sticky. It takes a little bit of time for it to sink in nicely. Once it sinks in, one layer of it is a sheer pink -- subtle and very pretty. You can layer it up for a more opaque pink. It's great for if you're just popping out to run errands, a casual weekend, or if you're running late on a school/work day.

I don't have very dry lips, so these are quite moisturising on my lips. The only thing I'm not keen on is the artificial cherry scent. Scent is quite subjective but for me, this is reminiscent of cherry cough syrup and I'd rather not bring up childhood memories of common ailments. It also explains my childish habit of separating all the cherry starbursts from the others. Nevertheless, it quickly dissipates once it's on and it doesn't bother me. Now if someone can make a gloss that doesn't stick to hair...

NYX products never fail to disappoint me, and this is no exception. The name totally throws me off because this is by no means what I would refer to as "beige". It's more of a medium tone pink. It tastes like bubblegum and looks great. I mean seriously for the price it doesn't get better. I also love the butter glosses from NYX and would definitely compare them and the mega shine glosses to high end brands, even better than some.

Just for the record, I did not personally purchase this, but rather my friend gave it to me. This is a nice, simple gloss. The scent is pleasant (it reminds me of some kind of candy I can't quite put my finger on), the packaging is sturdy, and the color is a beautiful, sheer pink that I think would suit most skin tones. Without anything beneath it, it's just a nice wash of healthy cool-toned pink rather than a really strong payoff. It isn't a sticky gloss, but that also means it has poor lasting power. I'm really more on the fence concerning whether I would repurchase once I run out, as, to me, it's a nice basic in my makeup collection; but then again, there isn't much to it. If I saw it on sale, I'd probably grab it.

This gloss reminds me of Cherry Pepto Bismol in both taste and color. As many have said, it's definitely not beige but medium pink. It's a good quality gloss for the price, but the color looks a bit bubble gum pink on my skintone. I'll use it up, but I doubt I would repurchase this exact color. I am curious about other NYX glosses from this line in a different color.

This is a great medium pink pigmented gloss. It's like a liquid lipstick. I wasn't expecting it to be so pink, but it works well with my skin tone. This is definitely not "beige," but very pink.

This pigmented gloss is too PINK for me. I actually got that warning before from some reviews, but since I like pink makeup I bought it anyway. When it combines with my natural lip color, it becomes warm bright pink which seems contrast to the rest of the face when I wear minimal make up. (I'm NC20) So, if you like highly pigmented colorful makeup, this one is great. But if you have light skin tone and prefer natural look, this gloss might be too loud. Texture is light and slightly liquidy. Wear time w/o eating is 4-6 hours.

I LOVE this gloss but it is not beige lol. It's a mauvy pink. Very pretty and would suit anyone I would imagine. The smell is like cherry cough syrup though. It doesn't bother me much, but be aware if smells bother you.

Stays on for a good amount of time and gives great pigmentation.
