Hello Gorgeous Ladies,
Today, I am going to review one of my favourite lip glosses, which one of my friend robbed from me 🙁 This is a long pending review. I had clicked pictures long back, but had forgotten to take the picture of the lip swatch and I was waiting to see if I could get a lip swatch done, but since that’s not happening any time soon as I won’t be able to meet my friend for the next 6 months, so I thought of going ahead with the review.
To all those who are new or do not know this, NYX products are available at dirt cheap prices on some of the international websites like cherryculture and porkdaisy. If you order quite a few products and even if you add the shipping rates, its still cheaper as compared to what we get here in India.
Alternatively, there are online websites based in India that offer good discounts on NYX products. I am glad that Indian e-commerce websites are stocking up NYX products and are offering good discounts on them. Okay ladies, so over to the review now.
So, here goes the review:
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 Take on NYX Girls Round Lip Gloss in Soap Opera Queen:
I find these glosses very tempting, they smell yummy and taste quite nice 😛 and look at the variety of colors, there’s one for everyone 🙂
The packaging is sleek, easy to carry around and leak proof. It has a doe-foot applicator which picks the right amount of product.
It is not very sticky and my lips do not feel heavy on applying this gloss. There is a lot of glitter in this shade, but to be honest, I don’t mind as the glitter is not tacky and blends well with the base color which is light pink. It spread evenly and doesn’t feel harsh on my lips. It is not too moisturizing, but at the same time does not dry out my lips. It doesn’t settle into the fine lines of my lips.
On seeing the tube, I thought this must be one hideous gloss and would be way too loud, but when I swatched it and applied on my lips, I was amazed to see that it isn’t too loud in spite of the heavy dose of glitter in it. When worn during the daytime (just one swipe), the glitter particles look lovely in the sunlight.
It fades away leaving the glitter behind, but I like it because it doesn’t bare out my lips completely even after fading away and the glitter is fine and doesn’t look bad.
The glitter isn’t too hard to take off, one swipe of cotton pad/cloth with makeup remover is enough to cleanse all the leftover glitter.
It has a juicy, mild yummy fragrance which lingers on for quite some time after the application.
It stays for about 2 hours without eating/drinking, but the glitter stays on for some 3-4 hours.
Pros of NYX Girls Round Lip Gloss in Soap Opera Queen:
- A wide variety of shades.
- Inexpensive and good quantity.
- Non sticky.
- Mild pleasant fragrance, yummy actually 😛
- Doesn’t settle into the fine lines.
- Cruelty free, no testing on animals.
Cons of NYX Girls Round Lip Gloss in Soap Opera Queen:
- Some may not like that it leaves behind the glitter after the gloss fades away.
- Availability in India at such low price is an issue (I was looking for round glosses at the counters, but couldn’t find them ).
- Staying power is satisfactory but I won’t really complain for it’s too inexpensive, so hey why not reapply it again and again, just one more reason to look at yourself in the mirror 😀 😀
Will I Repurchase NYX Girls Round Lip Gloss in Soap Opera Queen?
Yes, I loved this color.
4.5/5 (-0.5 for low staying power).
Thank you ladies, hope you like it.
