Products I Regret Buying - NXY Lip Lacquer in Georgia Peach

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another post in my Product I Regret Buying Series.  It's been a little while but I've been meaning to share this particular product.  I actually picked it up because some other gurus mentioned getting it at IMATS about a year or two ago.  What I learned is that what works on some, doesn't always work on others.
The problem with this gloss is not the quality of the product, but the color for me.  I never knew that this pot of gloss would be so pigmented.  The color is Georgia Peach and in the container it appeared to be a nice peachy nude.  On my lips however, it was a different story.  The gloss appeared almost white...it wasn't even worth salvaging with a deeper lip liner or lipstick underneath, lol.
PROS
-affordable
-opaque coverage
-not sticky

CONS
-too nude (color in packaging looks nothing like the product itself)

Would I Recommend?  Even though this is in the "Products I Regret Buying Series", I think this is a nice product it's just that the color was all wrong for me.  I would give it another go but definitely in a different shade - something darker and brighter perhaps.  If you're tan like me or have a deeper skin tone, I'd recommend doing the same to avoid the nude zombie lip syndrome, lol.

Have you tried this product before?  Let me know in the comments below!

I have this in a different color, and I hated it. I think its because it gets my fingers sticky and gross when I use this to apply. Since its a throw in your purse gloss, I don't bring a brush with me. I think if they put this in a tube I'd like it. Maybe.

When you are constantly buying new makeup products you will definitely end up with some buyer's remorse every now and then...LOL!!

I bought a pot of this in a pinkish color (can't even remember the name bc I don't love it lol) It's so pigmented looking in the pot, but when applied it's just sticky and clear.

That's crazy cause I actually have this color and I love it. I'm pretty fair so maybe that's why.
