NYX Mega Shine Lip gloss-Natural review & pics

I rarely use lip glosses and this one is great for pairing with smoky looks as well as for subtle looks. NYX offers variety of formulas and shades that it is completely irresistible to choose a single shade!!
ABOUT:“Kiss me quick! Our signature Mega Shine Lip Gloss delivers shine, moisture and softness and envelops lips with glistening color. The finish is both creamy and steamy and ensures knockout glamour. A blend of mineral and lanolin oils helps protect the pout. Available in 50 almost sinful lip gloss shades.”

PRICE:$5 for 11 ml

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING:Sleek plastic tube packaging with a doe foot applicator. I am personally not a big fan of doe foot applicators as I tend to spread the product outside my lip line using them. But with some controlled strokes it gives a clean finish. It has a cute bow on the cap.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

SHADE:Natural is a pretty everyday wearable lip gloss. I  would describe it as a light brown with pink undertones which makes it a versatile shade that will suit everybody. It is sans any shimmer or frost.

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture is very smooth.It is slightly thick in consistency but that helps in easy application and prevents bleeding of the gloss.

???????????????????????????????

It glides on perfectly making the lips soft and keeps them hydrated.The finish is glossy.

It has a tendency of being a little sticky but it is comfortable enough and light weight.

Staying power is less.It stays for about 2 hours maximum but leaves the lips very soft.

???????????????????????????????

This is the prefect gloss to be worn with intense smoky look.It doesn’t settle in the lip lines neither accentuate them.

It has fruity cherry fragrance which makes it all the more delicious!!!

PROS:

  • subtle ,everyday wear gloss shade.
  • light weight.
  • comfortable on lips.
  • keeps lips soft and hydrated.
  • the wand applicator is great.
  • available in many shades.
  • reasonably priced excluding shipping.
  • doesn’t settle in the lip lines.
  • doesn’t accentuate flaky lips.

CONS: 

  • has to be ordered online else its very pricey.
  • low staying power.
  • the packaging might break if it is closed very tightly.

RATING: 4.7/5

RECOMMENDATION: I love the shade,formula and everything in this gloss.It is super comfortable and the shade is such that it doesn’t wash out my skin tone.Highly recommended!!

NYX Soft Matte Lip cream-Addis Ababa review & swatches

I love NYX product sand this is one of the first few things that I used from the brand and was impressed by them.

ABOUT:Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.

• What it is: Highly pigmented, matte lip cream

???????????????????????????????

• What it does: Creates various matte lip looks
• Why we love it: Delightfully creamy and lightweight, our award winning line just expanded with two captivating new shades.
Artist Tips/Suggested Use
• How to use: Apply directly to lips, or over lipstick. Apply with lip liner to define outline of lips.
PRICE:$6.00
???????????????????????????????
PACKAGING:The packaging is really attractive and easy to locate.A short body having th same shade as the lipcream and matte black cap.The shade name is provided at the bottom.It has a simple doe fot wand applicator that helsp in application and spreading the lipcream easliy and evenly on lips.
THE SHADE:Addis Ababa is a gorgeous blue based pink.It looks very bright in the tube but comes out beautifuly and toned down on lips.I like the effect and how it brightens up my face.I like pairing this shade with a soft pink blush and it just looks wonderful !!
???????????????????????????????
OVERALL PERFORMANCE: The formula is creamy as it is a lip cram but it settles to a semi matte finish and sometimes, I apply a coat of clear lip gloss over it.It feels comfortable on lips.It can b a bit drying for dry lips but a balm underneath will help.Also,you need to properly exfoliate your lips otherwise it will accentuate dry flaky lips to the most.

I lie the light,non sticky texture.Staying power is great for about 6 hours as the shade is very pigmented.
The shade is decently pigmented and can be used sheerly as well as a full blown statement fuchsia shade!!!Although the shade is bright but it is office friendly as it tones down on lips and gives a wearable look without being statement lip shade.It is upo you,how you want to use it.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

INGREDIENTS: 

???????????????????????????????

SHADE:The shade Femme is bold,loud yet not OTT shade of coral.It is more of an orangy coral shade than being orangy pink which makes it look different.

???????????????????????????????

PERFORMANCE:The texture of the lipstick is very creamy and glides on easily on lips as with all NYX round lipsticks.I love the fact that these are available in variety of finishes to suit everybody’s choices.

It dries to a satin matte finish that i really like.

???????????????????????????????

It is super smooth which makes it more prone to bleeding.I usually apply it and then blot and then apply it again.This way,it not only prevents bleeding but also increases the staying power for about  5-6 hours as the shade leaves a stain.

???????????????????????????????

This creamy nature of the lipstick makes it prone to breakage and creating mess around that i really dislike.

???????????????????????????????

PROS:

  • great shade for summers.
  • creamy formula.
  • decent staying power.
  • comfortable on lips.
  • soft and smooth.
  • available in variety of shades.
  • the lipstick has a satin matte finish that i like.

 

CONS:

  • prone to breakage.
  • not travel friendly.
  • the lipstick bleeds if over applied.
  • unattractive packaging.

 

 

RATING: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: NYX round lipsticks are available in 144 shades and are a hit among all.Though these are prone to breakage but the price at which that comes and the finishes they provide is amazing.If you like wearing bold shades then Femme is a must have!!!

 

 

 

 

Nyx Roll on Shimmer Mauve Pink review,swatches & EOTD

???????????????????????????????

So,girls,i had been to Sephora few days back and again i got so confused as to what to buy!! Its like a fairy dream for me.My friend persuaded me to leave as i was totally lost as while leaving i chanced to see these beauties.I wanted to buy chestnut,nude,salmon shade too but they all were out of stock!!!!

Finally,i got this and i am really happy to have it!!!!

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

INGREDIENTSEthylhexyl Palmitate, Dimethicone, Methylparaben,Propylparaben, Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891). MAY CONTAIN: FD&C Blue.1 Al. Lake (CI 42090:2), FD&C Yellow 5 Al. Lake (CI 19140:1), Iron Oxide Black (CI 77499), Iron Oxide Red (CI 77491), Iron Oxide Yellow (CI 77492), Ultramarine Blue (CI 77007), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), FerricFerrocyanide (CI 77510), Carmine Al Lake (CI 75470), Chromium Oxide Green (CI 77288).

MAUVE PINK (RES05): Pink with gold and silver glitter.I totally agree with this description but i find silver shimmer to be more prominent than gold!!

???????????????????????????????

HOW TO USE: I use this shimmer roll on directly on to  the eye lids over a cream base shadow as it has a lot of fallout without  a proper base.

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING: As per the name,the eye shadows come in a transparent body which shows the shade of the shadow and a roller ball tip which helps in applying the eye shadow directly on the eyes preventing loose pigments creating too much mess although with this also,i have a bit of fallout!! The name of the eye shadow is provided at the bottom of the tube.

PERFORMANCE: I loved the shade as it is a mauve pink actually but i knew i wont be able to use it much as it is way too glittery for everyday use.

???????????????????????????????

The product comes out smoothly on eyes when the roll ball rotates.It is not at all chunky or gritty. I fel like i ma applying some wet pigment on eyes when i use this although they are completely dry and in powder form. You have be be very careful whilel applying this as it can easily be overdone.

???????????????????????????????

I try to settle the shadow with a flat eye shadow brush after using the roller pen as this has the tendency to fly and can ruin the entire look.

???????????????????????????????

The shade is decently pigmented and comes out beautifully when used over a darker base.

Staying power is around 7-8 hours after which i could see minor fading.
