Beauty Review: Mary Kay Fancy Nancy NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss

 Swa-Rai’s Atlanta Contributor Cassandra has a secret…

Mary Kay Fancy Nancy review


I have a confession; I am a sucker for lip gloss! So when the opportunity for me to try a new gloss comes, I usually go for it. This time, one of my clients, Alexandra, asked if I would be interested in some of her Mary Kay Cosmetics. She had a variety of Mary Kay products that were on sell. Yay me! Instantly, I was drawn to the lip glosses. Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss, “Fancy Nancy” to be exact. This gloss is a rosy blush color with a shimmer of gold in the mix. The website states that the lip glosses, “Get brilliant shine and add an instant boost of moisture that leaves lips feeling nourished.”

Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss:

  •  Smooths, protects and conditions lips.
  •   Has rich, intense, long-wearing shades.
  •  Comes in a range of finishes – from no shimmer to shimmering sparkle.
  •  Custom-bottle fits in Mary Kay® Compact and Compact Pro®.”

 I purchased Fancy Nancy and the Velocity® skin set. (Review coming later). When I applied it, it went on smooth. I love that. I also like the fact that the gloss is not tacky or sticky. I don’t mind that if I pay under $4 for it, but if I pay for a name…I expect it not to be tacky. After wearing it for about 2 hours, I do find that I needed to reapply it. Which I guess is normal if you are not using a lip stain. I like the color and it is good for a day at work or Saturday shopping. Would I buy it again? Probably not. I feel that I can find a similar color in a cheaper price range. I paid $7.00 for it, which is half off it’s normal $14 price. However, does have a very good color.
