Not to long ago I was going through my makeup and sorting it to go into different categories to be put into a new makeup storage solution I had gotten. As I was sorting through lip products I came across a bunch of NYX Butter Glosses that I had in my collection but that I had never covered on the blog and I decided that I should do just that.
According to NYX their Butter Glosses are supposed to provide medium coverage, condition and soften the lips, and not have any stickiness to them. The NYX Butter Glosses can also be worn alone or can be layered over lipsticks to provide extra glossiness. The applicator for the NYX Butter Glosses are a doe-foot applicator making it easy to apply and spread the product. If you are a makeup artist and plan to use disposable doe-foot applicators with the NYX Butter Glosses the application would apply as intended, however, if using a brush the product becomes a bit more difficult to apply and the brush winds up with a tacky feeling. As previously mentioned, there are 34 shades in the NYX Butter Gloss line ranging from nudes to black. The NYX Butter Glosses are not opaque in one coat, you would have to build to get a lipstick like coverage. Lastly, the NYX Butter Glosses have a fragrance to them, they smell like cake batter which goes great with the shade names.
I own about 9 of the NYX Butter Glosses so I wanted to share a few swatches of the ones that I own with you. The first three that I have are Creme Brulee, Tiramisu, and Merengue. Creme Brulee is a natural pinky nude shade, Tiramisu is a light nude brown shade, and Merengue is a pink lilac shade.
The next three NYX Butter Glosses that I have are Apple Strudel, Cherry Cheese Cake, and Peach Cobbler. Apple Strudel is a peachy shade, Cherry Cheese Cake is a red orange shade, and Peach Cobbler is a red orange shade. I personally feel that they should have switched the Apple Strudel and Peach Cobbler names around but that’s just me.
The last three NYX Butter Glosses that I have are Cherry Pie, Red Velvet, and Devil’s Food Cake. Cherry Pie is a classic red shade, Red Velvet is a deep red shade, and Devil’s Food Cake is a deep plum shade. I actually got the Red Velvet, Devil’s Food Cake, and Tiramisu in a trio set that was designed around a cake theme. The trio was cheaper than buying all three separately and I got Red Velvet and Devil’s Food Cake in it, which I probably wouldn’t have purchased myself.
Overall the NYX Butter Glosses have good pigmentation for glosses and they’re not super tacky feeling on the lips, which is why I don’t normally wear glosses. I find that I personally tend to prefer the NYX Butter Glosses as lipstick toppers than as glosses by themselves. For example, I will wear Creme Brulee or Tiramisu over top of my MAC Creme D’ Nude when I’m wanting to give it a glossier look and Devil’s Food Cake is a perfect match to take MAC Cyber from a satin to glossy finish and it also works really well to gloss and deepen the matte MAC Heroine. If you are looking for an inexpensive gloss that works well and has a lot of color options then pick up some of the NYX Butter Glosses. You can find them at some drugstores, Target, and Ulta.
