Last Friday I have blogged about these gorgeous NYX Roll On Shimmers which I was lucky enough to grab them at such bargain price during the Makeup NZ overstocked sale back in June. Today I am showing some NYX glosses swatches which I also grabbed at a pretty good price during the Makeup NZ sale.
Slowly going through all my shopping and showing you what I bought during my crazy shopping month. ^-^ I used to love blogging about huge collective hauls and/or just hauls in general and I am changing this habit because I tend to blog this huge haul and as soon as I finish that haul, I store these products in a safe place, too safe that I just totally forgets about them. Now that I am doing swatches and blogging individual products, I find it better for me and my makeup hoarding as I actually get to use these new products and see if I like them or not.
Anyone else have this crazy habit of blogging about some new hauls and just totally forgets about them? I am sure I am not the only one heheh. ~
Anyway, recently I was asked what do I think of NYX products?! All I will say is I absolutely adore NYX and I would consider it one of my favourite drugstore brand. It may seems like I don't blog much about NYX products and that is because NYX is expensive in New Zealand, we don't have these in-stores, or even if we have, it is still double the price as the American pricing. So instead of spending the ten dollars on one lip gloss, I would rather spend it on food. I think that is a good enough reason?! :) I can always buy NYX products on Beauty Joint or Cherry Culture etc... But their shipping is always expensive unless if you buy bulk lots, so... You guys know I am lazy and I like to save $$, the only times I would buy NYX products is when a NZ based online boutique goes on a huge sale!
Enough with the blabbing ~ Here are three new (well not really new, I have had them store in my makeup stash for so long!) NYX Mega Shine Lip Glosses I want to show you guys today, *scroll down* to last picture to see the swatches. ^-^
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss - Sugar Pie
OH GAWSH HERE WE GO AGAIN!
You guys know how I feel about a beauty products made in China >.< I totally didn't know when I bought this. While I absolutely adore Sugar Pie, it's such a gorgeous nude, I couldn't keep it. I ended up selling this and I was not sad to let it go hahah ~
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss - Salsa
Salsa is a beautiful pale pink with a glittery texture, I love the sparkles in it as it gives your lips that plump and juicy look. Made in Taiwan :) and I am glad, cause it is such a wearable girly girl color. Salsa can be added on top of a lipstick, goes perfectly with MAC Snob (my favourite) ^-^ or you can wear it alone.
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss - Gold Pink
Think of pretty pink shimmery Barbie! (I think it's a quote from Bring It On: All or Nothing, heheh I love that movie). Gold Pink has a same texture as Salsa, it is full of shimmering glitters and it also gives your lips that pouty look. The color is a bit darker than Salsa, it's more of a rosy pink and it looks soooo pretty when wearing alone as the gloss is already very pigmented.
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss - Sugar Pie, Salsa & Gold Pink
NYX Mega Shine Lip Glosses are available in 39 shades and they are described as moisturizing lip gloss that delivers shine and softness to the lips, NYX have described the finish of the glosses as creamy and I agree. ^-^ These gloss are very pigmented and shimmery, but the wearing time doesn't last long; after all it's lip gloss, right?! ~
Each Mega Shine Lip Gloss comes packaged in a long plastic transparent tube, I love a lip gloss that comes in a transparent packaging as that allows me to see how much product is left in a tube. There's a pretty cute 3D bow on top of the tube, which adds an extra cuteness to simple packaging. The gloss comes in a doe-foot applicator which makes application so much easier, the only downside is, the spongey doe-foot seems to suck in a lot of product, but that doesn't bother me at all. Have you ever seen me rave about a FINISHED lip gloss?! Hardly! So... These lip gloss doe-foot wand can suck in all the products like I care ~ hahah.
I am a lip gloss lover and I don't mind the re-applying during the days. Plus, I have been a fan of the NYX Mega Shine Lip Glosses since my teenage years, so it's safe to say, I highly recommend these!
