Nyx Glam Lipgloss Aqua Luxe 'GLG07 VIP'

Hey Everyone!
Hope you all are well :)

This is my second blog review as part of the Nyx Vlogger of the Month.
Today I have a lipgloss review for you all. 
Generally I am not too big a fan of lipgloss due to the fact that I have very long hair, which always manages to get stuck to my lips when I'm wearing gloss.
It can be a bit of a pain at times but its manageable.
With regard to lipgloss I always always always recommend that you do not spend a lot of money on a lipgloss. 
I have found that no matter what the brand, how much you spend, the end result is always the same. Lipgloss in my opinion is just not long lasting and I have tried my fair share of glosses both high and low end!

The gloss I have chosen today is the Nyx Glam Lipgloss Aqua Luxe 'VIP'.
I choose this gloss as it is unlike any of the other glosses I own.
It is jam packed with gorgeous shimmery glitter flecks that run through the gloss and 'shine bright like a diamond' when applied to the lips! 
If you want to add some sparkle to your every day makeup look, this is the gloss to go for. Just apply on top of a nude lipstick.
I've also found that to give us the illusion of larger more plump lips that applying this gloss to the centre of the bottom lip helps to achieve this.

As you can see from the picture above this gloss just oozes shimmer.
With regard to the lasting power, I've worn this to work on various occasions. 
If I am only working a four hour shift I'll apply it before I head out the door, reapply on my break after my lunch and at the end of my shift I'll still have traces of the lipgloss on my lips. So for me, I have found that I generally need to reapply the gloss after a couple of hours. Which I have found is a pretty average length of time when it comes to the reapplication of most glosses.

I paired the gloss with this gorgeous icy blue smokey eye.
There's plenty of shimmer on the eyes so I wanted to use something on the lips  that would compliment the eyes but not be too overpowering and this gloss was the perfect touch.

This gloss retails at £5.50 so it is affordable.
Like I said I recommend that you spend wisely when it comes to gloss as it just does not last regardless of the brand and how much you spend.
I'll definitely purchase more from this line maybe opting for more bold colours next time! :)

Talk soon everyone!

  1. OH, this is really nice lip gloss
    I usually use either glosses over the same issue of long hair, but when I decide to buy one has to be this style that contains even more bright spots
    I love them!
    I have the medium to large lips and do not like to use them precisely because that makes it look q'm all full of something sticky day hahaha but on a nude lip as you said is great.

    1. Yeah I try to wear gloss on a day that I will have my hair tied up so it wont annoy me haha!
      Its lovely over a nude lip, gives it that bit of sparkle :)
