[Review] Mary Kay Beauty That Counts NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss

Hey girls & boys,

If you guys recall, sometime last year I talked about the Mary Kay Journey of Dreams Fragrance which was part of the Mary Kay CSR programme. As we all know most companies these days have a corporate social responsibility to the public (CSR) and Mary Kay is no exception to that. Since they’ve been around (for more than 50 years that is) they’ve been inspiring & enriching the lives of all the women & children from around the world. Mary Kay Ash founded her company on this golden rule and emphasized the importance of giving back to others, that’s why every day Mary Kay is changing the lives of women and children around the world.

They do it mainly through their global program, “Beauty That Counts”, and this year, Mary Kay Malaysia will be partnering with HOPE Malaysia and Suriana Welfare Society to empower underprivileged children to break the cycle of poverty through quality education, positively transforming their lives and the lives of the community around.

If last year it was a fragrance, this year we have a duo of lip gloss that was created to help transform the lives of women and children. Around the world, funds raised through Beauty That Counts helps:

  • Offer victims of domestic violence a chance to heal.
  • Support people with cancer and give hope for tomorrow.
  • Give orphaned children a reason to smile.
  • Help educate children in need and so much more.

  • In Harmony : Café au Lait swirled with Cream and Sugar

The NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss gives an instant boost of moisture to your lips, smoothes, protects and conditions your lips while leaving it glossy. Though I’m not the biggest fan of glosses, these lip glosses contains a mixture of antioxidant-rich complex of vitamins and plant-derived minerals.

And I must say that the swirl designs are simply beautiful. Although the swirls do disappear after a while of using them, extra points for packaging yo. The lip glosses smell like vanilla cupcakes, so call me smitten the moment I uncapped the tube.

Swatches of the lip glosses below. From top, Create Change, and bottom, In Harmony. Both of them contain slight shimmers, and I think my favourite shade is Create Change due to the beautiful berry shade. ❤

Here is how they look in person, and I must say, despite the slight stickiness that comes with all lip glosses, I really like them!

NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Absolute Red : Review & Swatches

Hello awesomesauces! 

Today is a review of a product I am very much in love with, owing to the fact that this is my third tube of it! I first came across the NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Absolute Red when I was randomly browsing in Sephora. *I always do this at least a few times a month, and spend at least one hour in there. The staff must think me cray cray* 

But I never really noticed the Nyx Lip Creams before, and when I finally did, I never turned back from them. I only use red lip products most of the time, so I picked up the Absolute Red since it was the reddest one available. The lip cream comes in a lipgloss packaging and is very creamy in texture. Duh.

See how pigmented it is?

The swatch is so lovely isnt it?

The first time I wore it, I went WTFOMGGG! It was super red, like vampire/cherry/blood red, the exact shade I have always wanted on my lips. And the pigmentation is to die for, its so so red. The lip cream is a hybrid of lipstick and lip gloss, so it feels matte like lipstick, but looks moderately shiny like lipgloss.

Its such a lovely, dark mysterious shade and it would look great on any girl. The first coat on my lips makes me have lovely vampire red lips, and oh so sexy. You don’t have to use a lot, even the first swipe shows a beautiful pigmented shade. One thing though, since it is very intense, I would suggest lip liner first to avoid bleeding.I would say that this is a pretty strong colour, so take extra time to apply and make sure it looks nice and neat. 

The lip cream is thick, and very moisturizing, but not sticky like lip gloss. You know how annoying it is when your hair gets stuck in  your lip gloss? *lipgloss fury*  Also, this product smells sweet and buttery, but its not overpowering and fades after a while.

It lasts for several hours on your lips, it will fade with time,eating, drinking and kissing *LOL*, but leaves behind a very nice red lip colour  just like a lip stain. 

I also tried using it after blotting with a napkin, and it left this beautiful, natural red shade. Its a lovely colour for a night out or an event. 

So final my thoughts?

Pros:

  • Awesome shade of red
  • Lasts longer than your average lipgloss
  • Cheap, only RM 26
  • Not sticky
  • Smells good
  • VERY pigmented

Cons:

  • NONE from me. Tell me if you’ve tried this product and found anything wrong without it. 

I love the lip cream so much, and I’ll definitely be purchasing my fourth tube soon! The NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Absolute Red is available in all Sephora outlets for RM26.
