Today I’m reviewing a gorgeous red lip gloss thats super easy on the pocket as well – NYX Round Lip gloss in shade True Red.
Price : $3 for 2.5 ml
My take on the product
The NYX Round lip gloss comes in a simple tube packaging with an angled sponge tip applicator. I’ve had issues with the packaging of some NYX products in the past but this one feels quite sturdy. The lip gloss feels quite comfortable and non-sticky on the lips. Its quite pigmented and gives about medium to full coverage depending how you wear it. It has a mild scent which reminds me of ENO, not unpleasant but not one I love either. It wears fairly well – about 3-4 hours with light snacking though does wear off considerably with a full meal. It leaves a soft pinkish stain on the lips. I really like the formula and at $3, its quite a steal! The only issue I have with this particular shade is that it can get slightly uneven during application so you need to even it out using the applicator.
True Red is a lovely cool toned red that would flatter most skin tones. Since its not a very bold red, its a nice pick for beginners who want to dabble with brighter lip colors. I’ve had this gloss for over 2 years now and I’ve paired it with cool as well as warm toned eyes/cheeks and it works with most shades. Recommended!
