NYX Mega Shine Lip gloss (Tea Rose, Natural) : Review, Swatches, Photos

 

Hey everyone!

Today I’m reviewing the NYX Mega Shine lip gloss in shades Natural and Tea Rose. I was looking for some easy to wear soft neutrals and having heard so much about the Mega Shine glosses, decided to give these 2 shades a try.

Price : US $5 (Rs 300)

My take on the Product

 

The Mega Shine lip glosses come in simple tube packaging with a slanted sponge tip applicator. I particularly like the bow at the top of the packaging – it adds a cute touch. The texture of these lip glosses is quite creamy and they apply very smoothly on the lips. The pigmentation varies across the range – Tea Rose (soft rose pink) imparts enough color to even out the lips but doesn’t mask the lips completely. Natural (nude beige) on the other hand feels a little thicker and more opaque. I feel they toe the line when it comes to being sticky, I’d describe them as being very mildly sticky. I like that aren’t super-shiny and feel fairly comfortable on the lips, they feel like a cross between glosses and lip creams to me. The staying power is a touch better than an average non-sticky gloss. They do survive snacks and light drinks, staying about 3-3.5 hours on my lips. Overall, I think these are quite nice and I like the basic, easy to wear shades I have. The only I don’t like is perhaps the smell – it smells artificial and unpleasant to me.

Compared to some of the other NYX glosses I’ve tried – Round Lip gloss and Butter Gloss, these feel a little thicker and creamier and somehow not as hydrating as the other 2 which have a more juicier (and non-sticky) formula.

Rating : 4/5

Tea Rose is a milky rose pink – a very flattering and natural pink for medium to deep complexions. Just adds enough color to give a healthy look to the face. Highly recommended! I think its a little deeper than Beige which is also a hot-selling pink from this range.

Natural is a nude beige – its more opaque than Tea Rose and almost erases my natural lip color and could wash me out if not paired with a generous dose of blusher on the cheeks. It pairs quite nicely with  smokey eyes though. This is a really useful shade to tone down a lip color – just add it on top of a darker lip color to make the color less vibrant and more wearable.

    I too loved that natural one, its gorgeous.

    Actually I like natural more on you! I agree it might wash out darker skintones but on you it looks good, but then, I love pale/nude lip colors much more than a red or orange so can’t comment on washing out 🙂

    Are these available in India? I Love Natural

      Hey Nia, I'm not sure if these particular shades are available though you would find some shades in Mega Shine here and there.

    Natural would probably wash me out..Think Tea rose should be a better oprion for dusky skin tone.

      Natural alone would definitely wash out duskier skin. But if you pair with a brown toned liner underneath, you'll get a really nice neutral color! Tea Rose is my preference too, much easier to wear!

      You could make Natural work with a darker lip liner underneath 🙂
