NYX Butter Gloss


Jumping on the bandwagon that left a year ago I have finally managed to try the highly raved about NYX Butter Gloss. 

My lovely friend Freddi got these for me and although we can get NYX in the UK I decided on a handful of NYX products to be included within my international beauty swap to finally try out instead of placing a separate order. 

The NYX Butter Gloss (£5) comes in twelve assorted and easy to wear shades all of which are smooth, buttery, non-sticky and non-drying to the lips making them extremely easy to wear alone or layered on top of your chosen lipstick. The shades I chose are Éclair, Strawberry Parfait and Peach Cobbler.  


Left to right: Éclair, Strawberry Parfait and Peach Cobbler. 
As you can see by the swatches on my hand, Peach Cobbler is definitely the more noticeable colour and almost comes across as semi neon due to how bright the colour is. The other two shades look quite pigmented too but on the lips all three give a light to medium colour pay off depending on how much you want to build the colour up.  


Even though the colours may look a tad scary on my hand they are incredibly easy to wear due to the sheer application. On my lips is just one swipe and I am happy to report there is no stickiness to these great glosses. They are perfect for a quick on the go colour and definitely leave the lips feeling hydrated and fuller. 

There is definitely a great variety of shades to suit everyone's tastes and as they are so versatile and easy to use I would recommend them entirely. 

Have you tried any NYX Butter Gloss? What is your favourite shade?

  5. I love these so much! The opacity definitely varies between shades—I have some that are pretty opaque and others that are sheer. I would say they're all buildable, but they don't get sticky, which is so great! I think Vanilla Cream Pie and Cherry Pie are my favorites, though I haven't tried a shade I didn't like yet :)

    1. Vanilla Cream Pie was the one I was going to pick up but I really couldn't decide hehe! I agree with you as eclair is pretty sheer and so is Strawberry Parfait but that is buildable and then Peach Cobbler is really great for a gloss :D xx
