Purchased: $4.50 @ Cherry Culture
Packaging: Nice, solid and it looks quite fancy compared to other NYX glosses. It snaps into place when you twist it, which is nice. I don't like the weird doe foot very much though. It's too wide and the angle makes it awkward putting the gloss on.
Pigmentation: SO rich for a lipgloss! It's a definite bright red-orange with a light purple sparkle. The sparkle is very fine and there is no "grittiness."
Lasting Power: Not amazing but not terrible considering it's a gloss: about 2-3 hours but I have a tendency to lick my lips so it might be longer on some.
Scent: A really strong, artificial vanilla scent. It's not a bad scent, much more pleasant than the awful "lollipop" scent they put into their NYX Mega Shine lipglosses. However, I'd prefer it if there was no scent at all.
Formula: Despite the rich color, this does not stain your lips and the glossy sheen is very pretty. Overall, the formula is really nice and I don't have any complaints.
Texture: Perfectly liquid-y without dripping. The small purple/silver glitter flecks are not gritty (huge plus!) and you can't feel them.
The funny thing is that the color is SO pigmented that I end up dabbing the color off a little/not wearing it at all because the color is so bright ^_^ But this is me thinking the color is too much for my face rather than a fault of NYX's product. The sparkle and finish is really pretty and for people looking for a bright, highly pigmented gloss should try this! I would like to try this in a more understated color now (Rose Sparkle!); I got Orange Sparkle this time around because I thought it would be "orange tinted" which I like in lip glosses.
Overall, since the formula and packaging is quite good and the price very reasonable a la NYX - I would totally recommend people who want bright lip glosses to try this. For those looking for a more subtle look, this might not be for you though ^_^
