Hey guys! Today’s post is on the NYX Butter Glosses. I have two shades to show you today: Peaches and Cream, and Peach Cobbler. I featured one of these in my Spring 2014 Lipstick Picks post. I have seen a ton of great reviews on these so when I saw them in Sephora (In Malaysia, NYX is only sold in Sephora), I instantly grabbed one, and then went back for another one.

I like that the tubes come in different colours, which is kind of close to the actual product colour. It has a doe-foot applicator. It’s small and easy to take on the go.

The two shades that I own have good colour pay-off and can be worn alone (which is what I always do), or layered over a lipstick for extra vibrancy. These butter glosses do not smell like butter (thankfully), but they have a really yummy cake batter smell. They make your lips look really smooth and give a beautiful gloss to the lips. They are slightly sticky; not too sticky that your hair gets stuck all the time, just enough to allow a few hours of wear.
These are super pretty, but I don’t find myself reaching for them too often because I personally don’t like the feel of glosses. I always feel that lipsticks are much easier to wear because they just seem to have longer wearing times. These have pretty decent wearing time, but it definitely comes off with eating (as with all glosses).
These retail for $5 on Nyxcosmetics.com, and are sold in Sephora Malaysia for approximately RM22-25 each. It’s so affordable, and comes in a bunch of different colours. I would definitely purchase more of these.
Next purchase: NYX Butter Lipsticks! :p
Thanks for reading, xoxo
