NYX Glam Lipgloss Aqua Luxe 

NYX Glam Lipgloss Aqua Luxe ($6) is a newer line of super shimmery, glitter lipglosses with just a hint of color. They can be worn alone or layered over your favorite lipstick to enhance your lip color and add lots of shine.

NYX Glam Lipgloss Aqua Luxe are available in (11) shades:  I'm Coming Out, Do the Hustle, Beat Goes On, Glitter Dreams, High Society, Disco Playground, VIP, Paint the Town, Underground Boogie, The Last Party and Velvet Ropes.

The majority of the shades are pink toned with the exception of a couple beige/gold shades. I ended up getting three shades that I thought would look good topped over some of my favorite pink lipsticks.

The consistency of these glosses is thin, yet fairly creamy and comfortable on the lips. They are non-sticky, tacky or heavy feeling on the lips. Glitter glosses can tend to feel gritty on the lips, but I didn't have a problem with these. The shade Glitter Dreams contains the most shimmer of the three glosses I purchased, and you could feel the glitter when you rub your lips together, but it's not bad by any means.

The applicator is large, narrow and flat (love!!) so it scoops up the perfect amount of product, so you won't have to double dip for additional product.

I'm Coming Out is a medium toned cool pink with golden shimmer. It looks pretty on it's own, but since it's so sheer, I prefer wearing it over a similar pink or fuschia colored lipstick.

Paint the Town is a soft coral with subtle golden shimmer. It's the least gritty of the three because it contains the least shimmer. It looks really pretty topped over coral, warm pink and peach lipsticks. (See below where I paired it with MAC Cut a Caper Lipstick)

Glitter Dreams is a reddened raspberry with tons of multi-colored glitter. It's the flashiest of three, and if you love lots of shimmer, this is your gloss. When worn alone it makes my lips look a bit more berry pink toned, shiny and a bit fuller. I think this will pair well with any medium or dark shades of pink, plum - even red!

Because the gloss itself isn't very thick, it's not long lasting on the lips. It lasts fine when layered over a lipstick, but it's gone quickly when worn alone.

Also as a side note, after the gloss has worn away, it will leave glittery residue on your lips (which I think actually looks pretty). But if you're going to be kissing anyone, know that you're going to leave their face with lots of glitter particles!

NYX Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe Shades

The Round-Up

Pros:
  • Buildable color
  • Great applicator
  • Give the lips a fuller appearance
  • Isn't heavy, sticky or tacky feeling on the lips
Cons:
  • Sheer color (as advertised) but I'd love if these provided more color. They are absolutely gorgeous in the tube. I wish they translated with the same opacity on the lips! Of course this is my personal preference only. I still love the gloss.
  • Not long lasting.
Price: $5.99 each, NYX, ULTA.

  3. I love those colors. I bought a couple of the NYX matte creams at Ulta yesterday. I had never tried them before (or any NYX products). I am so glad I did. They have great pigmentation and staying power.
