NYX Tinted Lip Spa review

NYX Tinted Lip Spa in "Copacabana"

Here's what it looks like applied. It's a soft, natural pink. I used my Burt's Bees lip balm as a base before applying.

Product Description: Tinted lip spa is full of moisturizing and nourishing benefits to give your lips that spa treatment they deserve.

Ingredients: Ceresin wax, Microcrystalline wax, Beeswax, Olive Wax, Titanium dioxide, Mica, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Lanolin oil, Hydrogenated resin, Pigment.

Pros: lots of shine, natural, sheer color, not exactly sticky, goes on smooth, moisturizing, minty smell.

Cons: somewhat "tacky" feel.

What I thought about it: I like that this lip gloss offers A LOT of shine and sheer color. I got "Copacabana" because it seemed the most natural. When applied, it looks a bit more pink in real life than in the pictures but it's still pretty natural. It is pretty moisturizing, I suppose. It didn't dry out my lips like a lot of other glosses do. However, I expected it to be a bit more moisturizing and pampering, especially with a name like "Lip Spa." It isn't exactly sticky but does have a tacky feel to it and your hair will get stuck in it. However, this isn't that unbearable. It has a nice minty smell and applies smoothly. I used my Burt's Bees lip balm as a base first though.

  1. the tinted lip spa makes your lips look really smooth! I should get one of these the next time I order NYX. I keep getting their lipsticks and lipglosses.
