NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Beige and Plush Red made an impression on me!

NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Beige and Plush Red, review, photo, swatches

 I am a lipstick-girl. I love creamy non-shimmery lipsticks more than any gloss or anything . But does that not mean I don;t wear glosses. I do, but I tend to be too picky about them. The rave or diss reviews about the NYX Megashine Glosses got me really curious. So, here is my take

The shades I have are Plush Red and Beige.

Plush Red: As the name suggests it is indeed a plush red color. It's creamy and has strong pinkish undertones. You can wear it full on for an almost Gothic effect or pat it lighter to get a subdues beautiful color.
Even though I wear the brightest reds comfortably in the day time, I would not recommend wearing this one since it's very opaque and shiny at the same time.

Beige: Having taken quite a few peeks at different blogs, I saw, the Beige is not really 'beige'! it;s a beige-pink very close to the Lakme Lip Laquer I had used and yes, used up completely! I needed a replacement since it was withdrawn and this one has effectively taken up it's place. It's a great color for my NC 41 skin tone. Doesn't wash me out at all and looks wonderful with heavy eyes as much as with light eye makeups.

Now

What I liked about these
  1. The quantity is huge. Normally glosses come in 5ml or even 3 ml ( Maybelline Liquid Diamonds) bottles. These are 11 ml tubes! 
  2. About two dips are enough to cover both of my lips. You can even layer it for a more opaque and shiny finish.
  3. It highly moisturizes my lips. Even when it's gone, my lips remain completely moisturized and I don;t need to reach out for a lipbalm for the entire day.
  4. Opaque and can be even built up further.
  5. It's thick and difficult to spread around. But once you do, they don't feel sticky on the lips.
  6. The tubes do not leak which is the BEST thing I like about them!
  7. The packaging is cute and effective. The small boughs ( even though I am not girly enough to go gaga), look cute. The doe foot tip of the applicator is a bit curved to ensure better application and it picks up the right amount..
  8. Even though the price is too higher than that in the US, for about 450 INR, I am still happy.
  9. Wide shade selection even though here in India, the site mostly stock on the shimemry light pink shades and the browns. Duh!

What bothers me:
  1. The scent. They smell ugly, cloyingly sweet and synthetic and it take quite sometime before it disappears. The first time I tried it on, I was simply appalled!
  2. Mostly the browns and the shimmery pinks which are way too lighter for Indian skin tones are available here. Why don't the sites cater some more shades?!
  3. Even though the price tag that they come with is alright, I cannot stop calculation how many more I could have got hold of for the price they sell in the US.



Bottom line: If you can stand the smell, this is one of the best things around!!
