NYX Megashine Lipgloss

I got this NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Smokey Look in my recent NYX haul (to be exact, last year). This particular lipgloss has got alot of great reviews especially from the US counterpart but I was hesistating to get this because I'm not really a lipgloss person. I really hate the sticky and greasy after feeling on the lips. And also, I get really irritated if my hair sticks on it too.. >.<

But after getting to know from a friend, who is also a beauty blogger from Taiwan bought this and raved about it, I thought of giving it a try to. And she asked me to trust her that this is not so sticky like any other lipgloss.

So, this one here, is pretty special as I really think that it is not sticky at all. My lips didn't feel "heavy" too and I just love to reapply it over and over again. I think I went crazy too when I just put it on randomly when I was chilling in my own room. Haha

Why Smokey Look? First impression, I thought it was a darker shade of lipgloss, but after seeing the color and wearing it, I think I get it. It's the perfect shade for a smokey look, or to be paired up with smokey eyes.
I've tried this look myself and I really think it's a great color. The gloss applied on top of Nude lipsticks is just the perfect match. However, one thing though... I find the smell to be a little too strong for my liking. It smells kinda like cough syrup tho.. :/ Anyway, the smell didn't really lingers that long for me to hate it. Hehs.

Megashine Lipgloss is a more expensive line from the normal Round Lipgloss. I think it's retailing at $5 online,, It's a little expensive but fret not, they always have discount/ SALES. :D

The word sales ALWAYS sucks us in, doesn't it haha~

You have Flamingo mascara?!! Review please! =D Where did you get it from?

I've seen Tsuya Tsuya around for quite some time already actually. It's the opposite to Flamingo, the black fibres will/might irritate instead of the white ones haha
