Does DX lens get crop factor on a D5300?

Hi there guys, 
Sorry this may be a very noob question but I've been confused on what the benefits of a DX lens are. Let's use the kit lens 18-55mm vr ii as a quickie example. If it's on a DX camera is it cropped to 27-82.5 or is it just 18-55. lol I know the FX lens gets the 1.5 crop factor but I just never got any clear knowledge on how DX lens work on a DX body.

I kind of though that they get crop factored too. I'm planning to purchase an 18-200mm vr ii and though id get the crop factor to 27-300 but I think I'm wrong since it's a DX lens. Please help and thank you in advance!

Nikon D5300
