I am a die hard fan of Pink lipsticks and glosses so it was a no brainer that I had to choose this. I chose this particular shade coz I wanted a nice bubblegum pink gloss and this seemed to fit the bill perfectly.

My experience with NYX Megashine Lip Gloss in Ice Princess:
- Packaging: This gloss comes in the usual rectangular tube with a slanted wand. I love this slanted wand since it makes it so easy to apply the gloss evenly and more conveniently.
- Color: This shade looked like a bubblegum pink from the tube but I was sorely mistaken. This color is NOT what shows up on my lips. On my lips, this is just a sheer transparent gloss with a teeny hint of pink.
- Texture: The gloss is thick but not as much as the other ones I have..Tea Rose is also a lot thicker than this one. But nevertheless its non sticky and glides easily without settling into the lip lines.
- Pigmentation & Coverage: It gives me absolutely no coverage..hehe…seriously girl..it wont cover up any pigmentation or marks at all! Its practically like a mildly tinted transparent gloss!
- Staying Power: The tiny hint of pink fades within the hour But the glossy feel remains for a good 2-3 hours. It does leave behind the sheen of gloss though so immediate re-application is not necessary.
- Availability: These are available only at select stores in some cities. I got this from Dorabjee’s on MG Road. Nyx is also available on cosmetix.in, urbantouch.com which is an Indian retail site. If you want to get it for a cheaper price, CherryCulture, Nonpareilboutique.com also have these.
What I like about NYX Megashine Lip Gloss in Tea Rose:
- I luv the easy to use applicator.
- Its non-sticky which is the biggest pro for me.
- This shade would suit a majority of gals..there’s no scope of not suiting since there’s barely a hint of color!
- They have a huuge variety of shades in this range to choose from!
- Cheaper if bought at Dollar rate
What I don’t like about NYX Megashine Lip Gloss in Ice Princess:
- Contains Parabens.
- Wish the shade was actually what’s shown in the tube.
