NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Perfect || Review and Swatches

Hi Everyone!!

I have been really enjoying NYX products so far and I am looking forward to trying even more. I really like the Mega Shine Lip gloss range from NYX as it has so many colors and textures. I loved the color Dolly Pink and Beige. Since they are from the pink family, I picked up a peachy nude color named Perfect. Well, to be honest, the name enticed me too!

What NYX has to say about the lip gloss:

Kiss me quick! Our signature Mega Shine Lip Gloss delivers shine, moisture and softness and envelops lips with glistening color. The finish is both creamy and steamy and ensures knockout glamour. Available in a variety of sinful shades.

What I think about the lip gloss:

Using this lip gloss has made me realize that two different colors from the same range can be so different in texture. I loved the color Dolly Pink from the Mega Shine range and hated the color Perfect from the same range. In the tube it looks like a pretty light peachy color with some shimmer in it. But once you put it on your lips, the torture begins!

It feels very sticky and tacky on the lips. The formula is really thick as opposed to the colors Dolly Pink and Beige! It also has the characteristic weird smell that all the Mega Shine lip glosses have. It has absolutely no color payoff what so ever. It looks like a clear gloss with shimmer! The shimmer is chunky and it feels slightly gritty on the lips. Once the glossiness wears away, the sparkle stays on the lips. It looks like you have intentionally stuck glitter on your lips. I have never disliked any product so much before. Sorry for the bashing, but when you put your time, effort and money into a product, you expect a certain decent standard which this product fails to have.

The only good thing about this product is its packaging! I love the signature NYX Mega Shine lip gloss packaging with the bow on top, which is probably the biggest reason I want to own a lot of colors from this line!! Who doesn't want to keep something so gorgeous on their vanity!

Pros:
  • Affordable
  • Nice Packaging
Cons:
  • Weird smell
  • Sticky and Tacky
  • No color pay off
  • Gritty feeling
  • Chunky shimmer
  • Shimmer stays after the gloss wears off

Final Verdict: 1/5
