NYX Butter Glosses Review

NYX Butter Gloss Review

NYX Butter Glosses have been on my wishlist for years, which is kind of hilarious because I used to hate lip glosses from the bottom of my heart. But when even non-lip gloss lovers started praising them to the skies, I knew I had to try them one day. I had the perfect opportunity to do so when I was vising the States last year, yet I forgot to pick them up! I was so overwhelmed by all the cool products which suddenly became available to me that quite a few gems I inteded to buy escaped my memory. The regret has been hunting me for a year. People, don’t repeat my mistake and make mental lists only when you’re visiting a store you’ve been dying to visit for years. Trust me, everthing starts spinning around from excitement and your brain starts doing funny things. The moral of the story is: print out your damn wishlists and take them with you. Thank god, the story has ended happily for me, because I came up with this wonderful idea and ordered some butter glosses for my online store a few months back. Genious! And yes, sometimes I order stuff for my online store just because I want to get my hands on certain products myself, muahaha. Ok, let’s now start with the review 😀
NYX Butter Gloss Maple Blondie Strawberry Parfait Vanilla Cream Pie Swatch
So, do they deserve the hype? Oh yes, they do. I’m completely smitten! I currently own three shades (Maple Blondie, Strawberry Parfait, Vanilla Cream Pie), but it’s safe to say my collection is not yet complete. Most people describe butter glosses as hybrids between lip gloss and lip balm, which I would have to agree with. They actually remind me of the Clarins Lip Perfectors a lot. I see a lot of similarities between them when it comes to the actual consistency  of the product and the finish they give to your lips. The finish is what I love most about these butter glosses. They don’t contain any glitter and give your lips the most beautiful juicy, milky shine, while still providing some pigmentation. The pigmentation varies from shade to shade, but overall, I would classify it as medium. The glosses apply evenly with the doe foot applicator and can be built up, so you can make the colour more visible and wear it on its own, as well as only apply one thin layer for a natural look or wear it over a lipstick. The product feels very comfortable on the lips, creamy rather than tacky or watery, and smells yummy! The only thing that’s avarage about this product is wear time. It lasts about an hour or two on my lips, but after all, it’s still just a lip gloss and lip glosses just don’t have the best staying power.

    Mi swatch od Strawberry parfait na roki ni bil všeč, ampak na ustnicah pa izgleda ful lepo. Sem ga kar na WL dopisala 🙂

      Ja, na ustnicah zgleda malo bolj nežno. 🙂

    To se pa strinjam s tabo – res nenavadno, kako od navdušenja, ko zaviješ v neko interesantno trgovino v tujini, vse izpuhti iz glave. 😀 Jaz grem naslednji mesec na morje in si že pridno pišem seznam kaj rabim iz drogerij, kar pri nas ni na voljo. :)Pa hvala za review! Sem ravno prej razmišljala, da moram danes oddati naročilo Butter glossov v tvoji trgovini in se še kar nisem mogla odločit med odtenki. 🙂 Zdaj si mi malo olajšala delo. :PPa zadnja dva še ti posebej lepo pašeta. 🙂

      Hvala! Ja, res je grozno. Meni se to vedno zgodi in včasih potem celo nič ne kupim, haha. Ampak zdaj sem se strenirala in pridem z listkom v trgovino. XD

    Vsi trije ti odlično pristajajo. Jaz jih zadnjič nisem naročila, ker sem se tako težko odločila ua odtenek, ker so mi vsi super. Sedaj me Maple Blondie najbolj mika. 🙂

      Hvala! Tudi meni je Maple Blondie najbolj všeč, ker je tak nevtralen odtenek in ga lahko kombiniram z vsemi različnimi makeup looki. 🙂

    I need to get my hands on these! I don't think I've come across a single bad review. The colours all look right up my alley too 🙂 Good to know they remind you of the Clarins Lip Perfectors because I quite like mine except it's a bit overpriced.

    I don't like lip gloss because it's usually not so pigmented. These are very pretty!
