NYX Round Lipgloss in "Pinky Natural": Swatches and Review

This was a part of my first BeautyJoint haul. This is one of the best products from NYX. Now that I've already given away my verdict, you may choose to stop reading the review and just look at the photos or read on to know why these top my list. :)
NYX round lip glosses are available for $1.75 (Rs.100) from BeautyJoint and are available in a total of some 36 shades I think of which only about 5 are non shimmer, non frost- Pinky Natural, Natural, Real Nude, Pink and Mauve of which I bought Pinky Natural coz it looked like a very pretty pink. And it is! This shade is a medium pink with mauve undertones and looks very pretty when worn on it's own or topped over other lipsticks. It has no shimmer or frost and is decently pigmented and goes almost completely opaque. The consistency of these glosses is neither runny nor too thick but I'd say these are on the thinner side, which I like coz they are non sticky. The pigmentation of these isn't the same across all shades and the ones with shimmer are generally less pigmented than the pure colour ones.
These come in a clear round tube with a black shiny cap and have a bent doe foot applicator with a sponge tip. Pics below are clickable.

Ingredients

Swatch-Pinky Natural





Yay for:

  • Nice pigmentation. Goes almost fully opaque
  • These are non sticky and quite shiny
  • Last about 3 hours before starting to fade
  • Fades evenly, leaving behind a slight sheen on the lips
  • Not drying, not moisturizing either
  • Very very inexpensive
  • Can be worn alone or over lipsticks


Nay for:

  • These have a slight smell to them which fades in sometime but some may have a problem with it. I personally find the smell of Mega Shine glosses evil compared to these. These I find are tolerable.
  • Availability is an issue


Overall I quite like this range of glosses from NYX and they are great value for money. These are non sticky and pigmented and available in a whole range of colours. I definitely recommend these to everyone. I've already ordered for "Real Nude" in my next order from BeautyJoint.

You can buy these from BeautyJoint.

    1. I dunno... Maybe it's a personal preference coz mega shines are thicker and smell kinda like cough syrup, which I hate. These round glosses smell like dish washing liquid, which I can live with. Hehe
