NYX Round Lip Gloss Review

Ever since I was introduced to cherryculture.com, I've become a big fan of NYX. I love their products, from their concealers to lipsticks to glosses to eyeliners to their palettes. I love them all. None are without fault, but for their incredibly good prices, they're the best quality out there.

I have 3 of these. Real Nude, Kiss and Cafe Latte.


Price: Rs. 90.00 / $2.00

The Good: 

1. Excellent Pigmentation.
2. Loads of color choices.
3. The price. Where else can you get such quality for the price.
4. I like the slightly angled wand applicator. Makes application easier.
5. Staying power is pretty decent. About 2 hours if you don't eat or drink. Pretty much surpasses my expectations from a gloss.
6. Reasonably moisturizing. Will work great in summers. But in colder weathers, will definitely require a lip balm underneath.
7. The packaging is cute.
8. I like the texture. It's not too thick and not too sticky either.

The Bad: 

1. The smell (i can't point out what it is) may not suit those with sensitive noses. Though, it does wear off after a while.



Final Verdict: It's a great budget buy. I would definitely buy more, although different shades.

To me the smell is lemon pledge/lemon dish soap. It's kind of a pity because the colors are nice and really cheap!

@Pooja.. my order was for about $70 and the shipping was $15. So i think it was pretty reasonable. You can try shopcraze.com. They're shipping is much cheaper.

@Tanveer. Yea. it's my favourite outta the three.

@bhumika.. sorry about that. I've updated the post with the price.

@Mai.. yea it does. But the smell doesn't linger. It disappears once you've applied it.

I like the kiss shade!!

@classy&fabulous.. Yea, mid november. I wish cherryculture had a reshipping policy for lost orders.
When my coastal scents order went missing and I wrote to them, they were like if it doesn't arrive by this date, we'll reship it or refund it. That was so cool.
It only helps them if customers are happy.

@BSD.. i like that one too. but its kinda sheer. so i use it over a lipstick.
