NYX Round Lip Gloss Frosted Red – $ 3 , available at cherryculture.comNYX Round lip gloss frosted RedNYX Round lip gloss frosted Red swatchShade – NYX Round lip Gloss in Frosted Red is a true red color with golden shimmers. Unlike its name it doesn’t look frosty upon application.

Texture and formula – Texture is on a stickier side, though not overly sticky. It doesn’t settle into fine lines nor makes lips dry. The shimmers give a super glossy finish, however once it wears off you can find some shimmer left behind !NYX Round lip gloss frosted Red review and swatchesPigmentation – It gives a hint of color in single sweep, layer it up if you want more color or to intensify it. Frosted red will look different on different lips depending on how pink or pigmented they are.

Staying Power – 2-3 hoursNYX Round lip gloss frosted Red swatchesMy Experience

Despite of it being sheer, I somehow like it. Maybe for the fact that it doesn’t make my lips flaky or dry. The doe foot applicator works really well for evenly distributing the product. These glosses are cheap and I have seen couple of Indian websites selling it, though I couldn’t find it anywhere at this moment. I am not a big fan of shimmery glosses but this particular shade can be used to give lips that shine and hint of color before heading out for shopping etc. I also like to use it over matte red lipsticks it gives them that much needed luster/ shine/ glossiness.

That’s how it looks on me. I have applied it on bare lipsNYX Round lip gloss frosted Red photos

Overall Thoughts

A good shade for those who want to give a hint of color to their lips. It can be worn alone or over a matte red lipstick. I love how the formula gives an even finish and doesn’t highlight flakiness. It stays on for good 2-3 hours comfortably. If you have very pigmented lips this shade may have trouble showing up !

      I am also not that into lipglosses but they come handy when you don’t feel like applying a lipstick !
