NYX Beat Goes On Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe Lip Gloss Review+Swatches

 NYX says "Glam it up. Packed with glitter, our must have Glam Gloss gives your lips a hint of color and a mega-dose of shimmering, sparkling shine. Wear alone or over your favorite lipstick." These extra sparkly lip glosses are available in 11 shades, today I'm reviewing Beat Goes On. The Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe glosses contain 7ml (.24 fl oz) and cost six bucks. NYX is cruelty free. This lip gloss was made in Taiwan.

 NYX Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe glosses comes in clear plastic tubes with black plastic caps. The NYX logo and product name are printed on the front of the tube; the shade name and ingredient list can be found on the side. The Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe Glosses have flat, elongated doe foot applicators. Packaging is recyclable.
 NYX Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe glosses have a light, thin consistency that's mostly smooth, with a gritty fleck of glitter here or there - really they're quite sparse. This lip gloss formula is surprisingly moisturizing, which isn't surprisingly, after a quick glance at the ingredient list. Beat Goes On has medium color payoff and can go on slightly uneven, but its nothing that can't be fixed with a couple extra brush strokes. I don't get amazing wear from this gloss, on it's own, Beat Goes On lasts between 60 and 90 minutes; a little bit longer if it's worn over a lipstick. This shimmery gloss is very prone to transferring off, but it won't slip and slide around on the lips. While this lip gloss has no flavor, it has a mild, plasticy smell to it that isn't noticeable once it's applied.
Beat Goes On is a described as a "frosted beige with gold and opal glitter." NYX is famously confused as to what beige is. I'd call Beat Goes On a pearlised, pale pink with a significant amount of fine peach and gold shimmer. This high shine gloss has an ethereal, opalescent effect that's kinda hard to pull off, honestly. 
NYX Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe Lip Gloss in Beat Goes On is alright. This shimmering, celestial gloss isn't flatter on it's own, but it tops off more wearable pinks and nudes in a very interesting and pretty way. If you want a lip gloss with a high shimmer content and a relatively comfortable formula, do check out the Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe line, but otherwise, pass on these pearly lip colors.
