NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Vanilla Review

Hello beautiful ladies,

Today, I will be sharing with you girls my experience about NYX’s one of the most-liked products, and it is their lip glosses called Mega Shine Lip Gloss.  These lip glosses are available in 50 shades and the one I have is called vanilla. I have being eyeing this product from a very long time, but I was never able to find the shade I liked, but one day, when I saw these on 40% discount, I didn’t think of the color and ordered the one that was available. I am happy that I got the shade which is almost neutral and so can be used with a number of shades.


Product Quantity:

15 ml/0.53 fl.oz.


INR 475, but can be bought on discount.


These mega shine lip glosses comes in a long tube with black cap and transparent body. The transparent body helps in the easy recognition of color and also helps to determine the amount of product left in the tube. The black cap contains a little bow on the top which adds to the cuteness factor of the gloss.

My Take on NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Vanilla:

I decided to get this product as I had heard very good things about this. Most of the beauty gurus on Youtube were praising the gloss, so I felt that I should also try this. When I received it, I was impressed with the packaging (due to the little bow), but honestly speaking, I wasn’t too impressed with it when I opened it because I had expected a vanilla kind of fragrance (due to its name), but actually the smell was something weird. It took me a few minutes to get used to the smell, but my views again changed after applying the gloss.  It was extremely smooth to apply and consistency wise was quite thick. I expected it to be a complete nude, but it actually had a little color.

Vanilla is a shade that can be used alone or over a lipstick, it won’t give much of a color to the lips, but will make them shine. It’s kind of a frosty color. Staying power of the gloss is pretty good as compared to other glosses. They do make my lips shine for a good amount of time and maybe this is the reason that the gloss feels a little sticky on the lips.

Despite my mixed reactions about Vanilla, I would love to try some more shades from this range. I think I have selected a wrong color, something which is not according to my taste.
