I am not at all a gloss person, I prefer matte light, slightly creamy textures any day, but this particular gloss has taken me out of this rut I had been in regarding lips. I have been using NYX Girls Round Lip Gloss – Doll Pink pretty much every day. It is a bright color, which makes it perfect for summer. In the blinding heat, I keep my skin foundation free and have minimal kajal or just a thin liner on the eyes and this bright, bright gloss. It is an instant “pick me up” color for the face.
NYX Girls Round Lip Gloss has 36 pretty shades to highlight the sexy pucker of yours. Feels silky smooth, long lasting and the color in the bottle if the color on. NYX Girls Round Lip Gloss is a must have for all sexy girls.

My Experience with NYX Girls Round Lip Gloss in Doll Pink:
Packaging: It comes in a typical gloss packaging; clear body with a doe-foot applicator twist-up cap. It is very sturdy; I just toss this in my bag every day and have had no leakage issues with it unlike some other glosses I own. I also, always prefer a doe-foot applicator to a brush style.
Color: This is not a unique pink, but it sure is pretty. It leans towards purple, especially if you apply it thickly. It is a blue-based color, which in some lights, make it look purpler. It has very tiny glitter particles, can’t really call it glitter, but it is more like shimmer, silvery-blue shimmer. It is not an “in-your-face” kind of shimmer but a very subtle “gives a good glow and pout” kind of shimmer.
Texture: One of the things I like best about this is that the formula is not very sticky. It feels light on the lips and goes on very smoothly. It also does not settle in the fine lines and gives the lips a very even look.
Fragrance: I love the fragrance! It is very fruity, I really cannot pin-point to what it actually smells like, but it surely is positively yummy! Unfortunately, it doesn’t linger for long.
Staying Power: As with many glosses, the staying power is pretty low. The color fades off the moment you eat or drink something, but what stays behind is pinkish glow on the lips which looks good as it fades. If you do not eat or drink anything, still the color lasts about just 2 hours.

4/5, it is a very decent gloss, other than the touching up, there isn’t much else wrong with it.
Do I Recommend/Will I Repurchase NYX Girls Round Lip Gloss in Doll Pink?
For those who like pink glosses, I do recommend it, especially given the low price. I will probably not repurchase this as I am sure I can find this color in other easily accessible brands. This gloss is my go-to color these days, so I do feel very favourable about it. The color is so wonderful for summers, just some light eye makeup, natural skin and this gloss brightens up the whole look. It is one of my very few effortless good colors, needs no work to make it look good, just slap it on and step out!
I hope this helped and until next time, Happy Makeuping!
