Today I’ll tell you about a candy lip gloss from NYX.
My cat always wants to participate when I take pictures.
Product main info:
Full name: NYX Professional Makeup Candy Slick Glowy Lip Gloss
Shade: S'more Please
Color line-up: 12 shades
Shelf life: 12 months
Size: 7.5 ml
Outer appearance and applicator:
I love the design of this lip gloss. The tube isn’t see-through. It’s got golden lettering on and a funny, as though candy top cap.
The application is dual-sized and bending a little. It takes out too much for my tiny lips for I have to wipe it over the rims of the tube all the time. I love how this applicator distributes the product.
Shade: My shade is called S'more Please. I ordered it online, so I’d never seen this shade in life. In fact, it arrived a tad different to what I saw in the pictures. Yet still, the shade seems to be flattering me, even though I wish it was darker and more cool-toned.
But the S’more Please shade is more on a pink side.
Swatches on my hand under different lights:
On my lips:
It’s "slightly" different, isn't it?
Aroma: it’s pleasant, really sweet and candy-like. But I can’t say that it’s chocolate or vanilla.
Application, impressions of use and staying power:
As I’ve already mentioned, the applicator is handy and the product is nice to apply all over my lips smoothly and well.
The coverage doesn’t apply patchily and it never feathers.
It can crease a little into my fine lines but it’s not such a big deal. The texture is rather thick and not clear.
The stickiness is minimal and in general, the product wears comfortably.
As for the staying power, it isn’t the best and it’ll be able to stay put for about 3 hours on my lips only if I don’t eat or drink during that time.
In general, I love this lip gloss! Highly recommended! However, it’s noteworthy that the shades in life may look different to what they post on the official site (at least, it comes to my shade S’more Please).
