NYX The Blue Lip Gloss Smile Brightener Lipgloss Review, Swatches, Photos

I can so picture myself wearing blue lipstick and looking like I spent the night out in the cold. It’s that Jack Torrance hypothermia look, Jack, your son will remember what you forgot, that blue lips are so NOT in this season!

Gloss though, gloss you can pull off. It’s far friendlier than blue lipstick and it makes your teeth look whiter and brighter. That subtle hint of blue in the gloss reflects off the white of your teeth and your smiles instantly looks bigger and brighter. True story.

And you can get the effect on the cheap courtesy NYX Smile Brightener Lipgloss!

NYX Blue Lip Gloss Smile Brightener is part of the NYX Mood Lipgloss Collection.

This sheer lip gloss illuminates your smile with blue micro-crystal technology which makes your teeth look whiter thus giving you a bigger, brighter smile. The color looks a tad daunting as it’s a shade of ice crystal blue but it applies nearly transparent with a little hint of an iridescence blue tint. That blue tint reflects off of white and makes things appear brighter.

Does it make your teeth look brighter?

Some what!

If you apply enough your already white teeth will look a bit on the brighter and whiter side however if your teeth are badly stained, well, there is no hope for that, get ye to a dentist dear.

The formula has a hint of peppermint taste and a shiny formula that gives lips a fine glossy finish. The wear time is fairly short but it wears comfortably lightweight when it is in place. I like it over a hint of lip stain as it gives my lips a nice glossy finish.

Whether or not you’ll think it makes your smile look whiter is entirely up to your own testing but if you’re in it for a quickie gloss that hydrates, gives a mirror shine to lips, and isn’t too costly, this is a nice little pick.

    “get ye to a dentist”, haha! 🙂

    this gloss reminds me of an Essence brand one that I have. I don’t recall it making my teeth look any brighter, but I’d be willing to give the NYX one a try.
