Ask Temptalia

Got a question? Now’s the time to ask it!

Long-time readers will remember Ask Temptalia sessions, and they’ll also note that there haven’t been any in recent memory. I’ve created a Formspring account, which is essentially a place where you can ask someone (aka me) a question, and then I see your question and can answer it. I want to give this a try for now to see if can help me give you an opportunity to ask questions and me a way to answer them gradually and over time rather than attempt to answer 300-500 in one go. We are also hoping to build a very robust FAQ/support section through some of the questions asked.

You can ask me a question here! 🙂 Do NOT ask questions on this post!

NYX Burgundy Mega Shine Lipgloss

NYX Burgundy Mega Shine Lipgloss

NYX Burgundy Mega Shine Lipgloss ($5.50 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a darkened raspberry red with soft ruby and pink micro-shimmer. It’s semi-opaque on lips, and it has a high gloss finish and almost looks metallic due to the ruby shimmer.  This gloss was scent-free, but in the past, I’ve NYX glosses that have smelled like plastic as well as synthetic berry.

If you want to know more about how products are evaluated, read out Rating System FAQ! 🙂

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

FINAL THOUGHTS: If you’re not sensitive to those scents, the Mega Shine Lipgloss range is always a good place to start.  It looks beautiful on, and it wears a solid four hours without leaving lips feeling dry.
