Hello dear friends!
This is my first product review on IMBB and I am so excited about it. Whenever I pick up a product and think of reviewing it, I always found it reviewed here. This is a massive widespread of IMBB, be it any inexpensive product or the most splurging one, we will find it here. I always look for reviews before trying out anything. On mother’s day, I did some online shopping for my mom. I am a novice in this makeup world and don’t shop much makeup products online.
I purchased one Colorbar velvet matte lipstick- shy cherry after reading its review on IMBB (can’t help myself 😛 ), one NYX mega shine lipgloss-french kiss and one lakme black satin kajal ( only after reading rati’s review on that) and then began the period of waiting. I waited and waited and waited for 15 long days to get my order. Finally, the day came, when they arrived. Just to add on to my disappointment, the products were not in brand new condition.
After the long boring story lets quickly move to the review. And yes, the only delight was to see this lipgloss that was not covered on IMBB hehehe!! Whatever happened, atleat I got a chance to write for you all here.

My take on NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in French Kiss:
I like the packaging although the tube looked a bit used and old. This is a long tube and different from the round lip glosses which were released with this range of NYX. This gloss comes in a rectangular tube with a slanted wand and I love the wand since it makes application super easy and convenient. This tube has a cute little bow on the top.
Coming to the main point now, the colour of the gloss. Since, I bought it online for the first time Ii was very sceptical about the colour because it is mostly experienced that the colour in the tube is not exactly the same as seen. I had a tough time searching for its swatches on hand and lips since this particular shade was not reviewed on many makeup and beauty sites. I really can’t understand my obsession for pink colour 😛 I have loads of stuff in pink colour. I just can’t control myself and want everything in pink 😛 same was the case with this one. The site showed a pretty baby pink colour and I was head over heels and wanted it at any cost. This shade looks like a frosty pink..and it IS ACTUALLY A FROSTY PINK!!! I’ve never come across a gloss which looked the same on the lips as it does in the tube. And this is one of the very few exceptions. It’s a lovely baby pink shade with a frosty finish. I didn’t knew if I wanted frosty or glossy finish, all I wanted was to have this colour no matter what 😛
So, without wasting much time searching for the swatches, I placed this cutie in my cart. Although I am not at all happy with old packaging provided by the website but somehow I made peace with the colour and am quite happy wearing it on a daily basis since, it is a soft frosty colour and is not at all loud. Any skin tone can carry it. The best thing about these glosses is that they are non sticky and I mean it!! They do not feel heavy on lips and moisturize the lips well without being sticky. Would you believe me, I can’t tolerate anything slightly sticky or oil based in this humid weather but I am wearing this gloss with so much ease and love 😉 The gloss is thick, yet spreads easily without any stickiness. This is the biggest plus point for me. This is a gorgeous shade and I’m so excited about sharing this with you. It doesn’t sink into my lip lines and doesn’t dry them out either.
This gloss may be a light colour but its pigmentation is something that gets my vote again. This gloss gives full coverage to my lips. Any imperfections or marks are concealed very well.
If I have to deduct some points I will do so because of its staying power. This gloss stays on my lips for about 2hrs max and then fades gradually. The good point is that it doesn’t leave any frosty residue behind. But I could notice some shimmery appearance after it has faded. Even after fading my lips feel moisturized and I don’t feel any kind of irritation on my lips.
Pros of NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in French Kiss:
• The shades is exactly how it looks in the tube.
• Gives full coverage on application.
• It’s non-sticky which is the biggest pro for me.
• Doesn’t leave any frosty residue on fading.
• Moisturizes my lips well.
• I liked the baby pink colour ( some may not find the colour very appealing)
• Perfect for everyday use.
• Comes in a long tube which may last you long.
Cons of NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in French Kiss:
• I found it a bit high on price provided the kind of options we have for glosses in the market today
• Frosty colour may be a con for many. For me it is doing fine
• Might look washed out on some dark skin tones.
• Tiny shimmers are visible after gloss has faded
• Staying power is not appealing. But that is the case with all lip glosses.
Will I repurchase it? Well, no. I know, there are numerous options like it with so many brands which are cheaper than this. So, will opt for some other gloss.
RATINGS : 3.5/5
