NYX Cup Cake Gloss Review
Hey IMBB Gang,
I was eyeing this thing for such a long time, but it was mostly out of stock, and the moment I saw it available on urbantouch.com, I didn’t even think about it for a second and ordered them. I thoroughly regret my impulsive decision. These are the “oh soooooo cuteeeeeee” NYX Cup Cake Gloss. They are also available in chocolate cupcake and also fruit shaped here.
My dreams and how they got shattered 🙁
Okay, so I love them who wouldn’t say they are so cute, especially if you have a sweet tooth like me. I so badly wanted them. So, I figured they had to be good, well they are NYX.
These lip glosses come in a cup cake packing. I figured I might have to apply them with my brush, but I can make my peace with that :/. I got them from urbantouch.com for 360 on discount, originally for 450. They got delivered to me after 5 days of me placing the order. You can also purchase these from cherryculture.com
I got the package so neatly packed and opened in like a second. When I saw them inside, they were so tiny and their height would be like putting two MAC shadows on top of each other:(. I still kept my calm. When I opened them they looked nothing like glosses and the chocolate was a shocker. It was opaque like it had no color. The quantity is so poor it might not even be a spoonful I guess :(, but then I was like 365, so chalo chodo yaar, its okay!!!!
When I applied them, they felt like lip balm for that matter, OMG, OMG, no matter how cheap the product is, at least you should deliver what you say. They have added very minute golden glitter particles, which is nice to get that shine. As soon as you spread them, the color just goes away. Apart from strawberry, but the strawberry color is more of like a hue of purple. I applied them on my lips and it just doesn’t show. I was so happy with my Maybelline lip balm, simple but efficient.
Lesson learnt, don’t judge anything by the way it looks:(
Polybutune, mineral oil/paraffinum liquidum, ethylhexyl palmitata, 12-hydroxstearic acid, mica, fragrance, mathylparaben, propylparaben, BHT. May contain: RED 6 (CI 15850), RED 7 (CI 15850), RED 27 LAKE (CI 45410), YELLOW (CI 19140), BLUE1 LAKE (CI 42090), IRON OXIDE (CI 77499).
Making the best out of it!
Hmmm, I guess these will get over really soon. So, I am going to use them to make my own lip gloss and will place them in these cute containers. I know its not nice to be so cribby about stuff and for the price, I am okay with the lip balm also, but I had imagined something else and that’s where I felt cheated. Obviously, I am going to use it and flaunt it, and personally really love the smell.
Will I buy them again, hell, no, I am not a collector, but these definitely look cute in my vanity. I have already decided to make a neck piece of one of the cup cake and one to be hung on my bag…….:)
- They are 10 on 10 for packaging.
- They are nice to just apply on lips, you know just like that.
- They are not tested on animals, thumbs up for that.
- They are superb for travel, they can fit any where:p
- Not really lip gloss, though they have golden shimmers.
- The quantity is ridiculously small.
- Opening them is a task because they are so tiny and it’s a flip thing. I think I will end up breaking them while opening them.
- They barely have colour and very poor staying power.
- The smell is sweet, not really their flavours, but sweet, some might not like it.
- The chocolate cup cake is just a joke. It’s like I was putting ghee on my lips, just with a bit of chocolate essence to it.
- The consitency is dense/thick, not like a gloss, more of like a mix between juicy tubes and lip balm.
Will I Buy Them Again:
2.5 all for packaging and the strawberry cup cake.
