NYX Cosmo Lipgloss
NYX Cosmo Lipgloss

NYX Cosmo Lipgloss ($4.99 for 0.53 fl. oz.) is a shimmering rose gold–a lovely mix of pale pink, copper, and light copper. Applied, it looked lighter, softer, and not as warm-toned–more pink than copper came through. The finish was nearly metallic; incredibly sparkling and reflective.  It had semi-sheer coverage in terms of color, but there was so much shimmer in it, that the end result was more semi-opaque. This shade lasted three and a half hours on me and was neither hydrating nor drying.  As this one is so shimmer-packed, I do feel little bits of shimmer towards the end of wear.  Dior Paradise (732) (P, $29.50) is more coral, darker. Revlon Rosegold (DC, $7.49) is lighter. Urban Decay Naked is more pearly, less shimmery, pinker. (P, $19.00) MAC Social Light (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Blessedly Rich (LE, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Sunrise Lipgloss ($4.99 for 0.53 fl. oz.) is a medium, warm-toned red with coppery gold micro-shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage–it adds plenty of color to lips, but there is some translucency where the natural lip color comes through. I had some minor settling of the color into lip lines, but in general, it’s not easily noticed. It lasted well for four hours and was lightly hydrating. Revlon Fatal Apple (P, $7.99) is sheerer, less shimmery. MAC Mango Sheen (LE, $19.00) is also sheerer. L’Oreal Sparkle Frenzy (LE, $9.99) is darker, redder. See comparison swatches.

The Mega Shine Lip Gloss formula is supposed to “[deliver] shine, moisture and softness and [envelop] lips with glistening color.” It has a light-medium-weighted consistency that spreads evenly and easily across the lips. The texture is mostly non-sticky with some very light tackiness developing over time. I find that the scent of the formula varies from tube to tube, as some arrive with no scent, some smell almost like plastic, and then some smell like cherry cough syrup.  I didn’t notice the scent once the gloss is applied, only when I smelled the applicator or the product in the tube, and there wasn’t any noticeable taste.

    Hmm might need to check out Cosmo if it’s indeed a dupe of Revlon Rosegold. The shimmer worries me though…

    Okay, I LOVE Cosmo, love love love!! I’m going to have to pick that one up! (Thanks for a new lemming!) :D Christine, do you know of any glosses with a similar level of shimmer that lean more pink, like an icy pink?

    I love Cosmo! I use a dot in the middle of my bottom lip and pat it in with my finger to add dimension to lipsticks. I wore it with MAC Private Party recently. :)

    These are both so pretty!! How does the formula/feel compare to the Bobbi brown high shimmer gloss? Cosmo kind of looks similar, & the price is a lot better!! Thank you!

  10. The shimmers are ruining cosmo =(

    I love the NYX Mega Shine lip glosses! So cheap, especially if you get them at Ulta when they are BOGO 50% off (only time I buy NYX tbh). I love the shade “Beige” is a really pretty you DIDN’T guess it, pink shade! NYX really confuses me with their shade names some time. Some time they are spot on and other times…I just scratch my head.

  13. I really like NYX glosses and these look brilliant on you! :)

    do either leave glitter stuck to your lips as the color fades away?

    • You will have some shimmer–I wouldn’t call it glitter–that lasts longer than some of the gloss. It faded evenly for me, but yes, you will get a mix!

    Ugh I really hate the scent of the ones I bought in the past.

  16. Really like Cosmo on you, Christine! And Sunrise really is super pigmented, love this color!

    I love NYX lip glosses I wouldn’t mind having every one of them.

  19. I love these glosses! Both colors are really pretty. Love your top too!

  20. I’ve been on the rose gold bandwagon lately and I must own Cosmo!

  21. LuxLosAngeles

    These colors are lovely, but your beautiful blouse, steals the show! My favorite top on you.

  22. Cosmo is currently my go to gloss! I love it!

  23. Love the cosmo. Looks a lot like the cranberry cocktail colorsensational by Maybelline.

  24. Cosmo might be not my fave shade but on you it looks amazing, especially paired with that black blouse and eye make-up. :-)

  25. Omg. I’m definitely going to have to check out Cosmo!
    Do you think it’s close to MAC’s “Oh Baby” ?
