What the brand says: Get smooth, silky finish lips with just a swipe! Play up your pout with a silky stroke of Nyx Plush Gel Lipstick. Available in 6 totally vibrant shades, this lippie brings together an oh-so-soft feel and the high shine of a gloss. Drench lips in a wash of color for an instantly polished look anytime you crave a quick touch-up.
Packaging: The lipstick comes in bullet form and the colour of tube resembles the colour of the shade. The lid fits tight with a satisfying click and does not come off on its own. Lipstick is travel friendly.
Texture: The lipstick is very smooth and glides on effortlessly. It settles into a shiny gel-finish and does not bleed.
Shade: The shade Coral Mist is a beautiful coral shade with orange undertones. The colour is sheer which looks natural.
How I use and staying power: The lipstick is glossy and not matte so doesn’t need exfoliation before application. Simply twist up the lipstick, swipe it on your lips and you are done. One swipe gives a sheer colour and you can always build it up for extra shine and colour. The colour is beautiful coral and reminds me of MAC lip crayon in teen dream shade, the only difference is that this NYX gel lipstick is extra glossy.
Now coming to the staying power, the lipstick does not last long. Since it is a glossy lipstick, it transfers a lot and won’t last a single meal. I did not even expect it to stay long since the texture of the lipstick is gel-like and it does not settle or remain stuck on the lips and transfers readily. It won’t even leave behind a stain. This lipstick is perfect when you a natural look and don’t want to look OTT. You can always carry this in your handbag for on-the-go application.
