I was looking for a nice coral shade of nail polish to wear now that summer is definitely here (cant miss it with 3 weeks of 90+ weather). I decided to try Revlon's Make Mine Mango. However, it wasn't the coral shade I thought it would be. Instead, its a bright reddish orange. I was looking for an orangish color with pink undertones instead of red. It wears pretty well, I got 5 days with minimal tip wear. After the 5th day, tip wear was noticeable. The color is too bold on my nails for my taste but it will be perfect on my toes!

The design on my ring finger was created with a Kiss stencil that came with their Nail Art kit.
Now on to the NYX products. My fave gloss ever from their line is the NYX girls lipgloss in Natural. Its a creamy, pigmented shade of pink.

I am amazed that a gloss can cover the brown in my lips so well. Its not sticky and lasts a decent amount of time. There is a lemony, almost dishwashing soap scent to this gloss which quickly fades. This is definitely my go to gloss.
In the summer, I gravitate towards shades of bronze and coral. I went to Essentials in the mall (the only place nearby that sells NYX!) to purchase either NYX Girls Apricot or Peach gloss but they only had Megashines. A little weary of purchasing on whim without checking swatches, I dived. I chose Nyx Megashine lipgloss in Lollipop.

In the tube it looked slightly shimmery and frosty. On my lips, the frost is barely noticeable. It also turned out to be a great nude looking gloss for my skin tone with a hint of orange. My only gripe about the Megashines or maybe just this Megashine in particular, is the heavy scent of cherry, its not a sweet cherry smell but an artificial, slightly overbearing scent. This scent seems to linger around a little longer in comparison to the NYX Girls gloss. It also feels sticky and a bit heavy on the lips.
Nonetheless, these so far are the best glosses I have tried. Great pigmentation, color range, and affordable. I can't wait to purchase more shades!
