NYX Tinted Lip Spa in Vintage

NYX Tinted Lip Spa is a tinted lip treatment from NYX that claims to nourish lips with Vitamin E while adding color at the same time. Packaging wise, these look similar to the NYX Round Lipsticks except, they have a transparent lid-top to identify colors.

Since these are lip treatments, I assumed they are going to be quite sheer and picked up "Vintage" which was a bright coral. The color turns out quite true to what it looks like and is not very sheer either. The pigmentation is pretty good when compared to other lip treatments.

I would not say these are very moisturizing. They go on very smooth and deliver a nice tint, but dry my lips out after a while and disappear after an hour. I have to keep re-applying it. I don't have a problem with the color fading, as long as the moisture is retained but, the moisture is stripped away too! These may perform better with a lip balm underneath but that totally beats the purpose.

The colors look fun but, not sure why this was named tinted lip spa since I don't see my lips drenched in moisture like NYX claims. They have a minty feel to them  which is nice, but also a weird smell. The price however, is great ($5.99) and the color selection is really good. They are practical and fit easily in your purse.

Will I re-purchase this? Most likely, NO! If only they were more moisturizing to be called a lip spa. I am sure there are better tinted lip treatments out there that do a fab job for the same price, or lesser!
