Hey everyone! NYX has quite a few new products these days, including these Butter Glosses! Is it just me, or is the word "Butter" being incorporated into a lot of beauty products lately? I ordered one online and also found a couple in Ulta. They sell for around $5, have a wand/doe foot applicator, and come in a variety of shades with yummy names. The scent reminds me of a cake right out of the oven... or some sort of sweet baked/vanilla goodness.
The shades I have (swatched from left to right) are Eclair, Merengue, and Maple Blondie. The formula seems very creamy/milky and isn't at all sticky. They're very comfortable on the lips, but can apply in a slightly streaky way. It's kind of hard to explain, but it reminds me of nail polishes that don't go on fully opaque- you kind of have to work with these a bit to get the color nice and even, and once you do- don't "smoosh" your lips together because you'll once again get some streaks. The color payoff seems to vary a bit depending on the color you have. They DO have a lot of shine, and don't leave my lips feeling dry once they've worn off.
I'd describe Eclair as a sheer, light pink. I think the color on my lips isn't quite the color you would expect, judging by the packaging. I really feel like I'm mostly seeing my natural, mauve-ish lip color with some shine. Not super impressed by this one, simply for the fact that what you see on the packaging isn't really what you get. Still a pretty color though... it's probably going to vary from person to person depending on what your natural lip color is.
This was the first shade I purchased and got it off the Ulta website. It's a pretty pink with a bit of a lavender tone and it shows up pretty true to color. I liked this one, so it kind of prompted me to get the others. I think the shade is really pretty, and it's different from a lot of the pinks I already have.
Getting hungry yet? A maple blondie sounds pretty good right about now. Anyway, this one is a warm pink with a hint of coral. Not maybe quite as much coral as the packaging might imply though. As with all the others, it's very creamy and you have to build it up a bit to get the full-on color you see in this picture.
All in all, this is a decent product, but not my favorite gloss. They might go on like butter, but you have to play with them a bit in the application to make it look nice and even... for that reason, I definitely want to use a mirror when I'm putting these on. I'm probably not going to branch out and buy more colors, but of the ones I currently own, I'll get the most use out of Merengue and Maple Blondie because they give off the most color. Hope this was helpful to you!
