As soon as I heard that NYX had landed in the UK at Boots and FeelUnique I was so excited! I love affordable makeup brands & I’ve been lusting over their Instagram for a while now. I really had to try something and after a long browse on the website I decided on the Butter Glosses as I was looking for some new lip glosses anyway. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with lip gloss. It doesn’t last a long time and they can feel sticky, but sometimes I want a splash of colour or shine on my lips without prepping and priming for a lipstick. Some mornings I’m simply too tired to go all out with my makeup and I find wearing lipgloss is perfect on those days.
I picked 4 shades:
Ranging from nude to brown and then a bright pink colour for the spring.
So far I really like the constancy of these glosses. They’re thick but not sticky. I feel like I can talk and go about my day without worrying about what my lips are doing. The longitivity is obviously not as long as a lipstick but I find I can wear it at work for 5 hours before needing a touch up – which does impress me. The consistency is soft, silky and glides on like melted butter. I also really love the shine on my lips when I wear it. I think it looks super pretty and is just so perfect for an effortless yet chic makeup look. As it is a gloss the pigmentation is weaker than a lipstick and is definitely for people who want a subtle lip look which does make it perfect for work too.
For £5 each I would definitely buy these again and invest in other shades. I really like the packaging as it makes choosing your colour so easy, especially at 6am! I also love the scent as it smells like sweet cupcakes, it’s not over powering when on the lips but I do think it makes a product feel more expensive than it actually is. I can really see myself reaching for these in the spring/summer combined with a light blush and a dash of mascara. They’re just so easy which keeps me reaching for them and I find I have to carry one in my handbag at all times.
Overall I’m just so impressed with the Butterglosses and with NYX as a brand – I cannot wait to try some more. If you’ve tried NYX I’d love to know what you think in the comments below.
