Nyx Lip Gloss Golden Red review and swatches

Nyx Lip Gloss Golden Red review
Hello all!!

Let's welcome a rare guest here.. they are Lip glosses!!
I have always been a lipstick person rather than a lip gloss lover, still try them occasionally!  No problem, we girls have all the rights to buy makeup even when we don’t need more or the we wont be using them frequently. Right?? :D
In this post I will review Nyx Girls Lip Gloss in Golden red 04.

Price: 175 INR for 2.5 ml and shelf life of 3 years

Product details: The mineral-based lip glosses formula boosts moisture levels and protects lips, while coating them in sheer wash of transparent color. This lip gloss can be worn alone, or used to dial up the glamour of your favorite lipstick.

Experience: This is the NYX Girls lip gloss in Golden red and if you are a regular reader then you might be aware that how much I like red and gold combination and most of the times stay away from Silver shimmery shades as they don't go well with my complexion.
This looks like a regular lip gloss which is in Black and red color. Packaging is fine does not look cheap. Same can't be said for the sticker at the cap.
It has a fruity smell like that of oranges.. I love this smell and not this I love oranges too, they are really great for skin. 
It has a wand that is slightly bend that may help applying the gloss properly.
This Lip Gloss is called Golden Red that truly justifies its name and I am extremely happy that the color turned out to be of my liking as I ordered it online or else I would have been a victim of online shopping!! Thank fully it didn't out that way!

Online shopping can be really addictive when you do not feel like going out and especially in winters when the temperature dips day by day.
This Lip gloss color is sheer red with lots of fine golden shimmer particles.. trust me it looks awesome even if you apply it on its own or brush it over your lipstick.
It's surely going to make your lips poutier!
Its texture is okay and it is not sticky at all..
It's a Lip gloss then obviously we cannot expect it to compete with the lipsticks in terms of the staying power. It stays on my lips for 2 hours at a maximum. when I used it over the lipstick.

This color will not wash out anyone.. I don’t think so… since red and gold are warm colors and the consistency is sheer so…. this lip gloss will suit most of the Indian skin tone.
Overall, I like it and this is the first gloss that I have liked and really loved so far.. credit goes to its color more. Very much to my liking, suits my skin tone. Hopefully same with most of the skin tones.
This is how it looks on the lips. but the color may vary as it depends on your actual lip color if you are wearing it on its own!

Rating:4 out of 5
My take:It has a nice texture with fantastic color and the price will not dig a hole in the pocket. I will recommend it. If not this color then you may try other shades too.use it on it's own or dab it over the lipstick to make them appear more fuller!

  1. Awesome choice of shade Niesha. I was checking out medplus last night as they have some discount on NYX going on, but didn't order it. Your review is helpful as I like products with some staying power.
