NYX Megashine Lipglosses in Natural, Smokey Look and Perfect [Review]



These are by far my favorite lipglosses! I had heard so much about these and as soon as I swatched my very first one I was hooked! For more details keep reading :)   


NYX Claims:
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.

My Thoughts:
The packaging is simple and pretty, I adore the tiny bow on the top of the cap! The applicator is my favorite for applying lipglosses, the slanted doe-foot applicator which pulls out sufficient gloss and helps spread it evenly on the lips.

The formula varies among the different shades but the three I got have a similar formula, thick and creamy with wonderful pigmentation and a bit sticky which I'm willing to forego and forgive! As a matter of fact this stickyness is what makes them last longer on my lips, I can see the sheen if not the color for upto 2.5 to 3 hours sans eating, drinking which is absolutely crazy awesome! They have a syrup-y scent that MANY might not like but again I love these so don't mind it much or maybe I've grown used to it now. Anoher good thing would be that they do not dry out my lips, no sir!

Smokey Look:
A nude peach-y coral with slight golden shimmer. Beautiful corally gloss, looks great with smokey eyes as per name! can be worn alone or looks even more pretty on top of a nude lipstick!

Natural:
A nude-brown pink which looks AH-Mazing on it's own! It's my favorite among the three!

Perfect:
A very sheer warm pink with silver sparkles. Perfect for achieving the baby pink lips. It looks gorgeous when applied over nude and pink lipsticks but a bit too sheer as well as glittery which is the reason it's my least favorite of the bunch!

A BIG con is that it leaks I have no idea why would a perfectly screwed on tight cap not prevent product leakage :/ but it has happened to Natural and that makes me so upset!
Overall these are wonderful lipglosses with true-to-its-name megashine! oh I forgot another CON,  you'll want to collect them all once you try one and I'm talking from experience! haha =)
