Nowadays it's hard to find a lipstick or lip gloss that is affordable. But I can understand why, because some people think more expensive equals higher quality. Although that may be the case, it's not always true. Surprisingly there are more affordable ones that are still made of good quality. Lip Shine by Nicka K (NK) is a brand I never knew existed. But while at the beauty supply store I saw the brand. I'm starting to be open minded, when it comes to trying out beauty products. These lip glosses were on $2 so I brought 5 of them. The glosses are not matte, so they do not dry. But I love how they stay shiny, so I can deal with that. These glosses are very creamy and pigmented, so I only have to apply 1 to 2 times.
Sheen is one of my favorite colors! I know it's a clear lip gloss, but you can never go wrong there. My lips are glossy and it stays that way for awhile. I don't feel sticky with it on and there's no greasy feeling either.
Matrix is my second favorites. I have mentioned this one is my "current beauty favorites post". Here's the link for that: Top 5 Current Beauty Favorites. When applied to my lips it looks like a nude/mauve color. I am actually surprised I like this one. It wasn't in my comfort zone but, it's not extreme. So I really like it a lot it almost blends in with my lips.
Although its like a purple color it's lighter. I lean more towards dark purples but, surprisingly it's not bad at all. Besides this is way out of my comfort zone more than the color matrix but, I'm glad I brought because it's a pretty color.
A85 Woody Brown
I almost like it more than matrix. So this may be my new second favorite, we'll see! It's like a chocolate color and it's so gorgeous.
A87 Payne's Gray
I honestly didn't think I would like this one at all, because of the color. Even though it's gray, it looks like purple is mixed in as well maybe that's why I like it. I didn't expect this gloss to be a gorgeous but I was wrong.
Overall I love these glosses and I will definitely be buying more of them. Like I've said before these are very affordable at $2 each, especially if you're on a budget.
