NYX Lip Lacquer Pot in Coralicious :Review, Swatches


NYX Lip Lacquer Pot in Coralicious – Review, Swatches

Hi All,

After reviewing so many megashines, I thought its high time for a break..hehe..I wanted to review these tiny pots which have been a sort of an anomaly. Either one knows about them or else you haven’t ever even heard of them!

I bought a couple of these with very high expectations and was not quite satisfied with them. They are extremely cute and I think were supposed to be the answer to our our demands for a, intensely pigmented tinted lip balm. I have a 50-50 kinda love for these though and let me explain why it is so.

About NYX Lip Lacquer Pot in Coralicious:

  • Packaging: This product comes in a tiny pot like a lot of lip balms. It looks soooo adorable and cute and thats exactly what I fell for initially.. :)) :)) The tiny pot is very sturdy and it’s fallen from my hands innumerable times and yet no breakage or chipping. However, it doesn’t come with a brush which is kinda inconvenient and unhygienic.
  • Color: This shade is true to its name and is a true orange coral shade. It doesn’t have any shine or shimmer, yet has a nice glossy finish which all of us prefer.

  • Texture - The gloss is a bit sticky and here’s where it lost a point with me, I’m not very fond of sticky lip products and  although this isn’t inconveniently sticky, it still bothers me :)) For those who don’t mind this, it shouldn’t pose a problem at all. Additionally, this is very moisturizing which is a plus point which cannot be ignored. IT didn’t give me any allergies like other heavy glosses/ balms and kept them this way for long.

  •  Pigmentation & Coverage: This gloss is highly pigmented and gives full coverage, However, I usually use only a tiny bit on my lips so that they don’t look TOO orange.
  • Staying Power: This balm stays on my lips for about 2 – 2.5hrs max.  I was actually impressed by this since usually not many lip balms stay on my lips for more than an hour. This may  be because of its sticky texture as well.
