NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Natural – Review and Swatches

NYX Megashine Lip Gloss

By Ritcha Rao

Today I am here with the review of NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in shade ‘Natural’. This is a hit range from NYX cosmetics. I got this one last year and  am using it since then but did not get time to write and share my thoughts on it. Though its almost half now but  as they say its better late than never, I am reviewing it now :).

Everything glossy fascinates us – me and Charu. O yes it’s all about my glossy affair that all glossy things attract us ;). In fact, they should, else we lose :).

NYX Megashine Lip Gloss

NYX Megashine Lip Gloss
First time when I applied it I was not that comfortable with a nude gloss, I mean I was really missing those bold colours on my lips but slowly and steadily I started loving it and our bond got strong enough that it used to accompany me with other lipsticks too, be whatever colour I wear I loved its feeling and touch over that.
Coming to NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss, this is my first ever n*de gloss as I never tried even a neutral lipstick. So this gloss definitely brought that excitement to try on and see how it looks. I like how easily it glides on the lips and it doesn’t have that strong smell as I can’t bear lip products especially with strong smell. It smells like a bubblegum actually. So all those who love bubblegum, love its fragrance, others won’t!!
What the brand says:

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 39 sinful shades.

 Color and pigmentation:
It is a creamy color without any frost or shimmer. The color is more of a light creamy brown with pink under tones, it looks amazing on fairer skin complexions but can be worn by all with some confidence and some mix and match J. It is a daily wearable color.
Not so high on pigmentation since it’s a gloss only but works much better than others in terms of pigmentation as well as staying power. Not that it survives meals but without that, it stays for a good 3-4hrs.

 This Mega shine lip gloss comes in a long transparent plastic tube with a black cap which has a cute black bow embossed on it. The doe shaped applicator is of very fine quality, little bent from top as many other good gloss applicators these days and it doesn’t bleed.

The texture is smooth, thick and moisturizing. But it needs little extra effort to apply it evenly without forming any patch. It stays for upto 3-4 hrs without any eating or drink. I suggest extra exfoliation and moisturizing before applying it.
Shades Available: 
Available in 39 sinful shades – Clear, Dream, Desert, Frosted Walnut, African Queen, Vixen, Chestnut, Chocolate, Sponge Cake, Natural, Copper, Maroon, Africa, Nutmeg, Oro, Sunrise, Beige Pearl, Rust, Garnet, Gold Mauve, Miami Babe, Taupe, Copper Penny, Candy Shop, True Star, Perfect, Tea Rose, Beautiful, Nude Peach, Nude Pink

My Views on NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss :
I like the creamy and moisturizing formula of this lip gloss but I did not find it well pigmented. If I say it is wrong to expect a gloss to be highly pigmented, true, but then L’oreal lip gloss proved me wrong. You may say that raise my expectations to a higher level but on the other hand there is a big difference in price. So, for this price it gives a good color payoff 😀

It has a very mild vanilla fragrance, though I prefer lip products without any fragrance. Still not bad. Natural shade is an absolutely neutral shade which is very very light on lips, so you need to swipe it multiple times to make the n*de even visible. I don’t think it’s a shade which will go with Indian skin tone but if you want to flaunt with other lipsticks then it is perfect. All the girls with fair complexion will love it more.

The shine of this gloss is amazing and not too glossy. The formula is not sticky at all and goes on smoothly. I recommend using a lip scrub before applying it though. The angled applicator is wonderful as well.
Sometimes I wear it bare, without any lipstick and sometimes over my lipstick. All in all, in whatever way I use it I like it. Light to wear, not very noticeable and perfect for daily wear, especially when I need to rush to super  market and I want to apply something on my lips. It is a decent n*de shade which stays easily for upto 2-4hrs depending upon how much you lick your lips :P. It is fair enough as a gloss.

Extra brownies for being cruelty free. I love that feature. As far as the price and quality is concerned, I would recommend it to all who are looking for perfect n*de gloss.

Go for it. You will absolutely adore it 🙂
