Guest Review By Lee (Light Skin Tone, NC 35, Combination Type)
Product Description: Round Lip Gloss provides sheer coverage with robust colour to accentuate a pretty pout. Made with mineral oils and vitimin E, they come in 36 shades.
NYX Round lip glosses come in a long transparent tube with a black cap. The applicator is quite different and is a lot more slanted than the usual doe foot applicators. It applies the product evenly and the applicator is of good quality despite costing so less. Due to the transparent tube, color identification is a lot easier incase you’re in a hurry or have a cluttered makeup stash like me :p
Peach like the name is suggests is a beautiful sheer peachy pink gloss which contains fine shimmer particles. I absolutely detest shimmer in my glosses but the shimmer in this is gloss is sparse, very fine and does not look OTT. It is perfect for day wear and office wear and quite an easy shade to carry off.
Since its sheer it barely covers any pigmentation of lips so I’ll suggest this to girls with healthy pink lips only to give this a try. Though it works really well over peach lipsticks as well!
The texture is creamy and adequately moisturizes my dry lips. It is non sticky and does not settle into fine lines. It has this annoying citrus smell that reminds me of a detergent. Yuck! I’m really not fond of the fragrance but thankfully its not too strong and does not last long.
The staying power is pretty decent for a gloss and lasts for about 2hours after which I need to touch it up. I love the pricing of the gloss. It is extremely cheap yet of decent quality. I surely will be picking up more shades from this range!
The only real con for me is the availability and you can only find this at Sephora or International websites.
1) A beautiful peachy pink gloss that will suit everybody
2) Non Sticky and creamy texture
3) Decent staying power
4) Extremely affordable
5) Comes with a good quality applicator which applies the product evenly
1) Sheer and barely provides any coverage
2) Not easily available in India
3) Has a citrus-y scent which I’m not too fond of
Price: $3 or Rs 450 on Vellvette
Final Recommendation: If you like sheer glosses and most importantly ones that are super affordable then NYX Round Lipglosses are a must have for you. I will especially recommend this to collegites on a budget!
