NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss – Orchid

Hello Beautiful Ladies,

Today I am back with another  lip product from NYX and this time it’s a mega shine lip gloss called Orchid. I bought this color online around 2 months back expecting it to be same as the one I previously own (called vanilla) in terms of packaging. But its different from that, the tube says that it’s NYX Lipgloss with mega shine where as the other one was NYX mega shine lip gloss. I know that both the things mean the same, but I still wonder that why both of these are differently packed.


Product quantity: 15ml

Price: Rs. 475

Packaging: This gloss comes in a square shaped tube with a matte black cap. The doe foot applicator is attached to the cap (as it occurs in all other glosses). The packaging and the applicator is very simple, there is nothing fancy about it.

Ingredients: List of ingredients is mentioned on the tube itself, but unfortunately due to the dark color, it’s not clearly visible.

Product Description:

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss delivers shine, moisture and softness and envelops lips with glistening color.
The finish is both creamy and steamy and ensures knockout glamor.The formula is a blend of mineral and lanolin oils that helps protect the pout.


My take on NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss – Orchid

Color & pigmentation: The color is called orchid, and the color is similar to the color of orchid, it’s only a little darker, the color resembles magenta and has a purple undertone to it. It’s a beautiful fall color which looks amazing with an evening dress. When observed carefully, the bottle seems to have minute sized silver shimmer particles, but when applied, the shimmer particles are nowhere in scene, all it seems to be a bold glossy color. The color is so pigmented that the gloss itself looks too bold, even in 2 coats. I usually use glosses as a top coat over my lipsticks, but this particular gloss does not depend on any other lip color, it can be used independently.



Texture: These glosses are one of the best products from NYX and the main reason for that is their quality. These are extremely smooth to apply, glides easily, do not look patchy, feels very light on lips, non-sticky and moisturizes your lips, what else can you expect from one product.

Staying power: Now as it’s a glossy product, the staying power is not so amazing, but due to its dark color and superb pigmentation, orchid stays on lips even when the gloss is gone. It stays for a good amount of time on lips in the form of stain. Yes it stain lips to make them look colored even in the absence of the product. The color is transferable, but as it’s a gloss I have no complaints.


Fragrance: As I mentioned earlier, the first color I bought was called vanilla and so was its fragrance. It was actually a very weird kind of fragrance, but I assumed that its due to the name, they must have given different kind of fragrances to different color, but when I smelled this, surprisingly, the fragrance of this one resembles more of vanilla. Thankfully the fragrance goes away within 2 minutes of application.

Overall I loved this product, and I could not ask for anything more from a Rs. 475 product.
