I hate that I have to come out and say this glamour babes, but, don't waste your money on NYX's Plush Gel Lipstick ($7), it's just awful, and that's putting it nicely.
"Play up your pout with a silky stroke of NYX Cosmetics' Plush Gel Lipstick. Available in twelve 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. Want a bolder finish? (Yes, please!) A second swipe is twice as nice."
Sounds like an awesome lipstick right?! In reality, not so much.
The pros of NYX's Plush Gel lipstick, it is in fact super silky with a nice slick gel feel, beautifully vibrant, and has a ton of shine providing a good amount of hydration to the lips.
The downside, sigggghhhhhh, as beautiful as the shade Karma Kiss was (warm fuchsia), the color did not hold for very long, roughly 30 min, and it began to bleed and feather all over the place. I looked like a walking hot mess and I didn't even know it until I took a gander at myself in the mirror, the horror and Halloween isn't here yet! Lol. I also really wasn't digging the bad taste it left in my mouth, literally! If you thought hugging and kissing your grandmother who loves to bathe herself in Elizabeth Taylor Perfumes is hard to take in (still love you grandma!), think of that overpowering smell lingering on your lips......brrrrrrrr. Trust me, I wanted to wipe it off immediately, that's all I tasted for the rest of the day, yuk, so gross. I was testing out the staying power of NYX's Plush Gel Lipstick, and now I know, bad tasting lipstick does not pay to suffer, lol.
Karma Kiss will be returned to Ulta Beauty in exchange for an NYX Butter Gloss. They are just as plush, glossy, and hydrating as the Plush Gel Lipsticks, minus the perfumy taste and short lived wear.
Stay beautiful! Xo.
