Review: NYX Butter Glosses + Swatches

Fortune Cookie, Creme Brulee + Madeleine

I love a good NYX product, they're lip liners are one of my favourite lip products so I knew that the butter glosses were going to impress me. I've never been the glossy lips kind of person, I tend to prefer matte lips as normally prefer the finish. What generally puts me off of lip glosses is the stickiness and tackiness of them on the lips. However, after trying these glosses I think I have finally become a gloss convert (kind of). 

The NYX Butter glosses apply to the lip so easily with their creamy texture and for lip glosses they have great pigmentation, giving a medium amount of colour. I opted for three fairly nude shades: Fortune Cookie, Creme Brûlée and Madeleine. As you may be able to tell they all have dessert themed names which is extremely apt as they smell divine, like a freshly baked cake. As you can tell on the lips Fortune cookie and Creme Brûlée are really similar, with Madeleine being slightly darker. I was impressed at how long they lasted on the lips and whats really nice is that they don't leave a horrible residue on the lips, instead they feel moisturised and soft. 

Another great thing about these glosses is their bargain price. As I'm not the biggest gloss wearer I was never going to spend a ridiculous amount so their £5 price tag was really appealing. I've been applying these glosses over my lipstick and I love the finish of them. One of my favourite combinations so far has been Gerard Cosmetics 1995 lipstick with the Madeleine gloss, which makes the lips look plump and gorgeous!

I know I'm late on the bandwagon with these but if your trying to get into glossy lips and haven't already tried these then I would definitely get one! Also if you have any suggestions of other shades to try let me know because I want to buy a few more.

  1. These are one of the few glosses I like, especially the shade Apple Strudel! I currently have about 5 or 6 in my collection but I definitely want more ;)
