Hey all beauty geeks!!! Finally spring is on full throttle and I am enjoying the weather to the fullest. 🙂 It is only now that I thank god that I have finally started wearing lip glosses as well. These glosses feel so light and refreshing in the spring and summer season. I know you all know about it for a loooong time, but I have just discovered this beautiful lip product. 😉 As a result of this new-found love, I have been shopping lip glosses like crazy.
Today I am reviewing a true spring color from the so-popular NYX Mega Shine Lip Glosses. 🙂

My take on NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Nude Peach:
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss is available in around 40 shades. All the colors are so pretty. They have both shimmery and cream finish in their collection. Nude Peach is one of the shimmery shades. The color is a peachy pink shade that makes it a perfect choice for a fun summer look. The shimmers are slightly visible on the lips and give them a very glossy finish. The color looks more pink on me than a peachy pink, as always. But definitely not a true pink. If you can make sense of what I am saying 😉
I love to wear this shade with a heavy- on- the- eyes look or with a brighter shade of blush. It seems to complement the other brighter shades on face. In fact, the gloss makes any look appear very fresh and summery. 😉
Texture: The lip gloss has a very creamy and smooth texture. Gives a very hydrating feel to the lips. The application is very even for most of the times, but I did find it to be a bit goopy if applied more. I certainly had to make an effort to make it look even on my lips. The gloss feels a little heavy on the lips and can get a tad sticky.
Pigmentation: The lip gloss has a good pigmentation. Though not very opaque, the gloss does hide my pigmented lips and provide a nice, sheer color. You can definitely build the color.
Staying Power: The lip gloss is not that impressive when we talk about the staying power. It lasts for 2-3 hours and completely vanishes if you tend to eat/drink.
Smell : Has a kind of weird, artificial fruity smell that really puts me off. I literally try not to breathe when applying this. Thankfully the smell does not stay for long.
Packaging: The lip gloss comes in a very pretty packaging. The top of the gloss has a bow-like imprint and the tube is a regular square-shaped. It has a long and slightly slanted applicator.
What I love about NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Nude Peach:
- Creamy and smooth texture.
- Hydrating feel to the lips.
- Beautiful shine.
- Slight shimmers for a glossy finish.
- Cute packaging.
- Very affordable.
- Good quality compared to the price.
- Imparts a soft color to the lips.
- Buildable pigmentation.
- Does not dry out the lips.
- Long and slanted applicator for easy application.
- Goes with every kind of makeup look.
- Would look good on all skin tones.
What I do not love about NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Nude Peach:
- Does not stay for long.
- Feels tad heavy and sticky on the lips.
- Would have loved a little more pigmentation.
- Can get uneven if not applied carefully.
- Has a weird smell.
- Not for beauties who are not fond of shimmery colors.
Final Impression: These glosses still have the ‘old’ formula, if I may say so. With introduction of various innovative lip glosses from Maybelline, Revlon and L’Oreal, these may not appear as the perfect lip gloss choice now. However, if you only look for shine and a bit of color in your glosses, these are the most affordable choice in the market today. Would surely try couple of more shades before giving up on these 😉 Recommended!!!
