NYX lip products review

Hi dolls!
I reached home from Jaipur early this morning. However amazing your trip may be , there is a certain joy you get only from arriving back home. I felt that today morning. Nothing beats the joy of unpacking your shopping bags and eating your mums grilled chicken. Mmmm.
Even though the main purpose of the trip was to attend the Jaipur International Film Festival; eventually the purpose of the trip became stuffing our bags with clothes and shoes, sight-seeing at some heavenly spots and late night madness. Well, purpose achieved.

Now let us focus on the main story here: Lip products. They are a god-sent necessity which most girls use. So when I was contacted by the SpaStore to carry out these reviews, I was ecstatic! The SpaStore is a beauty website (which will launching shortly) which stocks some of the worlds most renowned international cosmetics brands.
Soon enough, I received a little brown package with 3 NYX goodies inside. I tried out each item and now, after a few weeks of usage, I'm going to review each of them.

*The products were sent to me by SpaStore India but the opinions and views expressed below are completely my own.

Product # 1: NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in 156 Pop




The lip gloss is a bright shade of orange which took me by surprise when I saw how bright it was. However once you apply it, the colour is barely pigmented and you will see just a light hue of orange. There is glitter in lip gloss which adds a lovely shine when you apply it.





*Pros:
- Well packaged. The application wand gives you an ample amount to apply.
-  The light pigmentation gives you a light pleasant colour which is not too shocking.
- The glitter adds a sheen to the lips.

*Cons:
- Lasts for just 2 - 2.5 hours without any eating and drinking in between. For it to remain glossy, it would require a touch-up in between.
- Once it dries out, the glitter remains stuck to your lips which feels a little odd.



My Rating: 5/10




 Product #2: NYX Lipstick in BL36 Iced Honey



The lipstick has a transparent top which allowed me to check the shade even before opening it. It is rich and soft and has a delightful smell. The shade is sort-of a rose gold shade with a golden gleam.


*Pros:
- Smart packaging with a transparent top which allows you to check the shade.
- Extremely rich and creamy. It kept my lips moisturized & I didn't even need to apply lip balm before applying this lipstick.
- Well pigmented with a golden shine.
- Staying power (including eating and drinking) is good enough. It lasts for around 3 - 3.5 hours

*Cons:
- Once it dries out, the lipstick accumulates in the creases of your lips.


 My rating: 7.5/10




Product #3: NYX Lip liner pencil in 817 Hot Red



The lip liner is a brilliant red shade and is soft which makes it easy to apply on the lips. I generally do not use a lip liner so with the liner, I drew in the outline and coloured my lips in the same way that you would use a colour pencil



*Pros:
-Well-pigmented red shade. It is that perfect red shade which a girl must own.
- Soft to outline and apply on the lips.
- Staying power is good. It lasted for around 3.5 - 4 hours (with me eating, drinking and dancing in between)


*Cons:
- It comes in the form of a wooden pencil form which becomes cumbersome to sharpen now and then. There is also a chance of it splintering once you sharpen it.
Instead they should package it in the twist-up plastic pencil packaging.

NB: If you decide to use this liner as lipstick which I did, make sure to apply a clear lip balm before you do so.




My rating: 8/10

I do hope you liked the reviews. The SpaStore will be launching soon so if you want to purchase any of these NYX products or any cosmetics, do head over to the SpaStore for all your beauty requirements. Not only do they stock over 10,000 international brands but you be will assured that your order will reach your safely and in mint condition.
