Nyx Butter Glosses

Sometimes you just want to believe a drugstore hype! I waited till the hype died down the Nyx Butter Glosses and went ahead with the purchase anyway. I blame eBay for giving me an amazing deal.

I picked out three shades –

Tiramisu : Pale pink and toffee kind of shade, it’s a little too light for me. I’m wearing it by itself below but I generally wear a darker lip pencil underneath so it’ll suit me better. Although it is quite pigmented, since it’s lighter than my lip colour, it can look patchy.

Strawberry Parfait : This lilac fuchsia shade is very sheer but that’s what makes it work. I feel like it wouldn’t suit me at all if it was more opaque since the colour is so cool toned and light. I actually enjoy wearing this on it’s own.

Peach Cobbler : This is a stunning coral shade that leans more orange, this one I would recommend purely for the colour. With two coats you can get a full opaque look.

While I like the colours I picked, formula wise I’m not 100% happy. The (huge) range varies a lot in terms of opacity and pigmentation, it’s more noticeable on darker lips. It’s very easy to apply and feels very smooth, it’s not sticky at all. They’re very glossy and don’t settle into lines. But these are just too heavy on the lips for my liking. This may not be a con for everyone since it might last longer but for me I hate it when I feel a heavy lip product on me.

These are very moisturising throughout the 3-4 hour wear. They will come off if you eat/drink but that’s standard for a lip gloss. Also, these do not stain, I know some people might prefer that.

I like the packaging, it corresponds to the actual shade which is nice to pick out. You get 8ml of product for $5. I guess for the price, you can’t really complain much but I do regret buying these, it’s definitely not something I needed. I think as a basic lip gloss, these are a great option, it’s just not what I like in terms of lip glosses.

Also, if you’re curious great examples of lightweight lip glosses I like are the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors, Chanel Levres Scintillantes, Maybelline Hi Shine and Guerlain Gloss D’Enfer Maxi Shine.

    Nyx butter glosses used to be on my wish list and then I forgot about it. I think you have picked 3 gorgeous shades, but Peach Cobbler is my favourite of the bunch.

    I have mixed experience with the brand but I do believe what my fellow bloggers are saying about this lipgloss line! 😉

    These are my favourite lip gloss formula! But I can see how some might find them heavy. I have Tiramisu and Peach Cobbler and love them both :)

    OOO gimme Peach Cobbler!

    Sorry to hear you’re not loving this so much. I’ve heard great things about these, but since I don’t like glosses in general, I’ve never looked into them.

    Aww that’s too bad that you don’t like these, they’re quite nice imo! They do feel a bit gloopy though so I agree that takes a bit to get used to.

    Aww sad. I might not get these as well because I don’t like the feel of heaviness on lips. I like the Tiramisu on you though. 😀

    It’s a shame you didn’t love these glosses that much, I don’t mind them being a little heavy as long as they’re not sticky so they’re one of my favourite formulas, and you can’t beat the shade range or the price. But you win some, you lose some I suppose.
