Review: NYX Round Lip Gloss (with swatches)

NYX girls new lip gloss. 36 pretty new shades to highlight that sexy pucker of yours. Feels silky smooth, long lasting, and the color in the bottle is the color on.

Quality: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Price: $3.00 - $2.00
Size: 0.085 oz
Where To Buy: nyxcosmetics.com / cherryculture.com / shopcraze.com
Would I Buy Again: Absolutely!

---------

I'll keep it short and sweet. These are the best lip glosses I've even tried. Not only are they a great price, but they have a great texture & pigmentation, are long lasting, and have a good smell/taste.

Note: these were reformulated a few months ago to fix the packaging and change the smell from lemon to sherbet.

PROS:
-most are very pigmented, the sheerer ones are layer-able
-very affordable
-wonderful texture, not too thin or thick
-long lasting
-good range of colors and finishes
-cute packaging
-smells good, like sherbet ice cream
-not sticky
-some have lots of shimmer, some have none, there is something for everyone

CONS:
-if you don't like the smell of sherbet ice cream you may not like the these

I have a bunch of their glosses in the tube. Nice colors. A couple of weeks ago they had a good deal o their web site. I got a ton of glosses, eyeshadow trios and eye liners. Then I ordered during the 50% sale. I already got my order from cherry culture. Lots of lipsticks! I thin ordered from NYX and I know I ordered more lipsticks and I forget what else. I never used the brand before. I sure like it. Good quality for the price.

You are right; these are special. They are the perfect medium between sticky and slick, yet pigmented. Truly a unique product! I have Golden Prune and Wild Orchid.
