Review: NYX Round Lip Gloss in #01 True Red


Today I'm going to hare to you a product that I am using everyday. Actually, I'm not that much of a make-up person, so I only apply what I am comfortable wearing. So yeah, today's product review is all about one of my favorite lip gloss brand, NYX.

I bought this lip gloss maybe two months ago. Its my first NYX product and I instantly fell in love with the brand. Too bad they're not locally available, and if I find them online they are already twice as much the original price :|

NYX Round Lip Gloss in #01 True Red

I really like the bottle packaging of this lip gloss. Its got this cute prints that are surely girly. And its even easier to see what shade you are looking for even if you have them stacked up somewhere because the shade/label is printed on the top.

I've had a local brand lip gloss before and the applicator wasn't the same as this. I came across a blog talking about this slightly bended shape of the applicator and it says there that this is solely for the purpose of easy application, which I would like to agree. With a slightly bent applicator, applying lip gloss to your lips is indeed easier and less messy.

Here I put a small amount of lip gloss on my hand. You can clearly see how red it is. Beautiful. A small amount could already add a red shade to your dull lips.

And even on a photo with flash, the red is very much obvious. Its a nice shade of red thats pretty much wearable everyday.

My Review

Although its a lip gloss, I only apply a small amount to my lips. I am kinda using this product as a lip tint because I only want a hint of red on my lips, enough to make it not look dull. A small amount is enough to cover your bare lips, making it slightly red. Its a little sticky, but not in a bad way. Also, the product smells nice in my opinion, unlike most beauty products which has a strong scent. The tube is also small enough to fit in your purse so you can carry it with you wherever you go.

I would definitely buy more of these lip glosses if I could find them in my local stores for a reasonable price. Its really one of the best brands that are not expensive and has really good products. I would really love to try more NYX products like their lipsticks and blushes.


  1. I love NYX glosses! I agree, a little goes a long way. Red looks too heavy on me sometimes but having just a tint is perfect for most looks.

  2. Hehe when you put it on your arm, it looks like you're bleeding LOL
    Too bad I don't really like wearing lip gloss >.<~

  3. The colour looks really pigmented (:! i been wanting to purchase nyx products for a while...
