Despite my whole thing about not being big on lip gloss, I went on a whim and bought myself 4 NYX Butter Glosses. The line seems to be generating a lot of hype - I generally find NYX lip products to be a hit-and-miss, but since these are only $5 each, I decided to go for it (meaning buying 4 shades at once). Also, it's called a butter gloss, BUTTER!! How could I resist!
The 4 shades I purchased include (in order from top to bottom) Peaches & Cream, Créme Brulee, Peach Cobbler and Apple Strudel.
I'm not sure if it's noticeable in the swatches, but my lip lines can be faintly seen through the gloss, especially on the lighter, more milkier shades like Créme Brulee and Apple Strudel. Overall though I'm really happy with how these NYX Butter Glosses wear on me, and give major points for not drying out my lips. It only wears about 1-2 hours, which I expected as the formula doesn't quite set and maintains its shine . There is also a hint of sugary vanilla goodness in the scent, which of course is to tie back to the whole dessert theme.
I find similarities between the texture of NYX Butter Gloss with the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors (see last post), which is saying a lot as NYX is considerably cheaper. However the Natural Lip Perfectors are more hydrating and last slightly longer on my lips.
Have you tried NYX Butter Gloss? What are your thoughts on them? Let me know! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. :)
