I got this sometime last year while experimenting with NYX. I’d heard so much about their lipsticks and glosses. While I’d heard of the Round Lipstick in this shade I had never heard of the megashine in the same shade so decided to try it out And thank God I did or else I would have missed out on a gorgeous shade!

- Packaging: This gloss comes in a 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. Also a small but cute point about this gloss is that it has a tiny bow molding on the top of the wand which is a li’l something extra for us make up lovers. The shade details are written on the tube itself.
- Color: This shade like all other NYS glosses looks darker in the tube than it does on the lips. When I saw the tube I thought it would be a dark pink-peach shade but on application it comes out on me as as a light pink gloss with a hint of looked really dark in the tube but on application it looks much much lighter.However, this color is a very lovely everyday shade to wear to college or to work. It would not look OTT since it doesn’t have any shimmer in it. The glossiness is to die for and this is one of the glosses I grab when in doubt.
- Texture: The gloss is a but thick but spreads easily without any goopiness or stickiness. This is the biggest plus point of this gloss in fact. I hate sticky glosses since they look streaky and goopy. But this one is not like that. Although the formula is thick, it is not sticky at all.
- Pigmentation & Coverage: When I use it, its more of a faint pink than what I expected. Its extremely light and not as pigmented as I would ave liked. It gives me very light coverage and would not conceal any pigmentation or marks on the lips.
- Staying Power: This lipgloss, like all other faint colored shades from NYX don’t have a strong staying power. This gloss stays on my lips for about 2hrs max before fading. It does leave behind the sheen of gloss though so immediate re-application is not necessary.Additionally, I love reapplying glosses so this isn’t too much of a hindrance for me.
- 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 urbenTouch.com which is an Indian retail site. If you want to get it for a cheaper price, CherryCulture, Nonpareilboutique.com also have these.
