I guess most of the people out there may have already seen these for the 1089273483595238459 time already. =P So hopefully this 1089273483595238460 entry won't bore you off. =)
Not long ago, I bought this one from Nonpareilboutique's when I saw their thumbnail pic of these.
And so, I got this NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Natural. A very very boring and safe shade, for an "un"adventurous me. =P
BTW, mine was the old packaging. The newer version of this is much simpler.
Compared to my previous NYX Round Lip Gloss, this megashine is also a little longer.
The lip brush.
And the color swatch.
Dark plumy colored gloss, almost perfect for my pigmented lips.
I don't really judge the color from the website. Quite misleading at times. =\
Description from NYX website:
NYX's signature lipgloss offers a creamy, lacquer finish with high-impact color pay-off and incredible shine and sheen. This makeup artists' favorite can be used as both a gloss or a stain depending on the application technique. This gloss contains minerals and lanolin oils to condition and moisturize lips.
Price: $5 from NYX and $3.75 from Nonpareilboutique
I like this!
Texture and consistency wise, this NYX Megashine lipgloss is slightly sticky but tolerable. The gloss consistency is thicker and staying power is slightly longer than NYX Round Lipgloss as well. As for the scent, it doesn't have any strong scent to it, unlike NYX Round Lipgloss that has a lemony scent. What attracts me to this is the "SHINE" that it gives. I don't like those "glossy" effect but this natural-colored megashine LG gives the "shiny but matte" effect. Also, it covers up my lip lines quite well when I layered two coats of it.
Comparing with my NYX Round Lipgloss, there's a slight difference between the two. Mainly on the brush and the gloss texture and consistency.
And the swatches of both.
Therefore, if you like moisture & "slippery" gloss texture, go for NYX Round Lip Gloss. If you prefer shine and thicker texture of gloss, go for Megashine's version. I haven't tried the other NYX glosses but these two are quite good (and affordable!) IMO. =)
