Price:
I got mine for about $3-5 in Toronto, random store. I don't want to mention the shop because I hated the customer service there. So I don't want to "spread" the word for her. *holds grudge*!!

You can also find NYX in Rexall in Canada! =)) There's also a shop in Vaughan Mills which carries NYX products. They are a bit marked up and gives me stares. =( Don't know why?

Some Price comparisons:
$2.00 on Cherryculture.com, I found some people buying it for just $1. 
Ebay has some credible sellers. Usually about $14 for 6 lip glosses include shipping fee.

Photo you probably saw already, but this is a picture of me wearing this lipgloss. Too lazy to do another Lip swatch right now =P

Review:
I always love nude lip glosses because they are so effortless. They usually go well on everyone's skin tone. This is a peach nude, pale but not too sheer. It contains some shimmer but not chunks of glitter. The color isn't as light nude pink as the swatches provided by NYX. It is pigmented and wearable. It looks great over nude lipsticks. I think that the peachy tone helps avoid the "corpse" look. Don't know what I mean by corpse look? MAC Lipstick Myth is a good example. It gives me the corpse look while with this NYX lipgloss over, it tones it better.

The consistency is very thin, so I don't like to use it with the doe-foot applicator it comes in. That's because when I apply over lipsticks, the applicator easily picks up my lipstick instead of spreading the lipgloss. It is not sticky which I really liked because I always avoided MAC lipglosses because of that. The texture is somewhat greasy, because the consistence is thin. This does bother me because if I were to spread the product over my lips with lip-movement, then I will great a lipgloss border on my lips. I always had to make sure I avoid doing that in the first 15 minutes after application. A little annoying because it's a habit for me.

The staying power isn't very long, only an hour or so but when it fades, it is still a natural finish instead of leaving it dry and between the cracks of my lips. It also has a smell which reminds me of a fruit sorbet, some are bothered by it. I would much prefer floral scents but I don't mind it. The packaging is girly, not overly fancy and not tacky. It is practical with no spillage.

Last thing: I read on blogs that this is a dupe for the MAC Cremesheen Glass in Boy Bait. I don't own this lipgloss but just a FYI. :)
