NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss - Natural

February 26, 2010

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.

gorgeous right?

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. =\

On me.

Product: 15ml

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

My thoughts:
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. =)

Ooh, I really like this! I also have pigmented lips and am always looking for something new that can cover pesky lip lines.

I'll have to check out nonpareilboutique!

I own NYX Round Lipgloss in Natural and I think it differs quite significantly compared to the Megashine version. The Round Lipgloss one has a pinkier undertone.
