Red lips have always been a huge trend, but this kissable fad has become especially prominent in the last few seasons.

As we all know, each new trend brings the question: “How do I pull off this look?” Personally, I have spent a large portion of the last few years searching for the perfect product for red lips. After countless trials (and several failures), NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Plush Red has easily become one of my favorite red lip products.

While the term “lip gloss” may make you think “sheer coverage,” this gloss provides ample color without being overpowering. Here’s my comprehensive pro/con review of NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Plush Red.

•    Lip gloss applicator allows for quick and easy application
•    Only one coat necessary for full color coverage
•    Gloss is shiny, making lips look perfectly kissable
•    Doesn’t dry out on lips like some lipsticks
•    Can easily be removed by blotting with a tissue
•    Doesn’t smear or spread with everyday use

•    Color does not last all day and has to be reapplied every few hours
•    Product smells like liquid cold medicine

Despite the slightly unpleasant odor, NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Plush Red remains one of my favorite products. Moreover, at only $5.00, this lip gloss is affordable and perfect for everyone’s makeup collection.

Red lips not your style? NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss comes in 39 different colors, including nude pink, tea rose, chocolate, nude peach and frosted beige.
