Brand: NYX Cosmetics
Shade: Strawberry Parfait
1. Fair and medium skin tones
2. Adding a hint of moisture to matte lipsticks
5 /5 – Great for the price and more like high end packaging!
5/5 – Awesome and the smell mmmmmmmm tastes like real strawberries! The color inside is the color of the tube.
3. Lasting Power:
3.8/5 – Poor like any other lip gloss.
4. Shade Color:
5/5 – Such a pretty pink exactly as shown on the tube.
5. Overall Rating:
4.7/5 – Great for hydrating lips by adding a bit of color as well but very poor lasting power.
Do I recommend it?
Yes, but with limitations.
Why do I commend it?
I highly recommend it if you are a fan of lip glosses even in your late 20s or early 30s or even 50s. if you don’t like the idea of heavy lip staining and happy and satisfied with lip glosses then this is the one for you. You don’t need to spend extra cash on the high end lip glosses because this in terms of texture, consistency and color selection is very much comparable to the super expensive high end brands but yeah if you want great lasting power than do your homework and get yourself a gloss that does a bit of staining too. This one doesn’t! The color strawberry parfait is just so pretty that I sometimes stain my lips with Rimmel lip stain in the shade “Keep Mauving” and apply this on top and voila! I look so pretty while still looking young that I am. 😀 I prefer Rimmel lip stains over Revlon because Revlon ones are glossy on their own.
Anyways love the color and absolutely love the taste and the product consistency. I have Tarte lip glosses as well but this one is nothing less and I now prefer these over any other high end brands.
Why is it a hit?
- Adds a nice sheen to your matte lips if applied on top of matte lipsticks
- Smells amazing
- Great product quality
- Amazing packaging
- Hydrates your lips
- Melts on the lips
Why is it a miss?
- Bad lasting power
- Breaks easily
- If you throw your makeup bag here and there (this might break if hit hard)
- If you don’t like the feel of glosses
- If you are looking for some lip staining
- If you don’t like the smell of these
Brace it with:
- Natural or party makeup
- Matte lipsticks
- Alone without any lipstick
- Matte lip stains like Rimmel
