As part of my Cherry Culture haul I picked up a couple of NYX glosses. I’m definitely more of a lippie girls than a gloss girl but at those prices I was keen to try them out. Here we have Real Nude (ironically a mauve nude) and Mauve (which doesn’t look that Mauve to me). How odd. In the pic Real Nude is on the left and Mauve is on the right. Mauve looks like more of a mid toned pink to me.
As the swatches show these are fairly pigmented for glosses. They are smooth and none sticky too which I love. The applicators are doe foot which some people love (like me) and some don’t. I personally find they give a more even application.
Despite loving all these things about the glosses I have only worn each one a couple of times. Now this isn’t going to be a bad thing for everyone and everyone will have their own preference but to me things STINK. I mean they properly hum.... They have this sweet sugary orange kind of smell, kind of similar to the ELF All Over Colour Stick I hated so much. I’m not a massive fan of sweet foods or scents and I balk at this fragrance every time. Sorry NYX! I love your other stuff and I’m sure plenty of other people love this fragrance but I don’t want it anywhere near me...
