My Experience with NYX Merlot Brush On Lip Gloss:

Packaging: The brush on lip glosses from NYX come in a rectangular tube packaging. It’s made out of clear plastic so you can easily spot the colour in your stash. The applicator is pretty long. The brush is kind of stiff and tapers at the end. It’s a very different brush than most lip glosses. The packaging is sleek and the product doesn’t leak out, so it’s travel friendly.

Colour/Pigmentation: Merlot is your typical Indian red-brown colour that gives a very nostalgic feeling. My mom used to wear this colour daily while I was a kiddo. Most Indian Women might own a lipstick in a similar shade. It has lots of fine shimmer to it which gives a nice effect to the lips. I love the colour, but I won’t recommend it to college goers. It’s a nice warm brick red colour. I love the pigmentation of this gloss. You can totally build up the colour up to your liking. The application is often streaky when wearing it sheer due to the brush. Hence either you have to use a finger or purse your lips for smooth application. No such problem is faced when wearing boldly. The gloss is super glossy and makes your lips very juicy looking.

Texture:  The texture is creamy enough. It’s neither too thick nor too thin. It’s sticky, but just the right kind of stickiness. The shimmers are very finely milled, so you don’t feel them when you purse your lips. The gloss moisturises my lips when it’s on. It doesn’t exactly hydrate, but my lips do not feel dry after I remove this either.

Staying Power:  It stays for about 3 hours. It fades with a meal. This gloss doesn’t leave a stain behind, but it transfers easily.

Smell/Taste:  I do not like the smell of this gloss. I don’t know why NYX lip glosses have awful smell! :/ No taste thankfully!
