I don’t go to ULTA as often as I use to, but when I do I always make sure to stop by the NYX section (I feel like I just quoted a Dos Equis commercial.. ha!) On my recent trip, I was excited to see a few products that I didn’t recognize that are new for 2013.
NYX Butter Glosses ($5) are a new line-up of lipglosses that are described as providing a sheer to medium coverage without feeling sticky. NYX makes some awesome lip glosses (especially their extreme lip creams and megashine lip glosses) and as usual, they come in a great variety of my kind of shades (pinks galore!)
NYX Butter Glosses are available in (12) shades: Strawberry Parfait, Eclair, Peaches and Cream, Merengue, Creme Brule, Peach Cobbler, Tiramisu, Apple Strudel, Vanilla Cream Pie, Cherry Cheesecake, Maple Blondie and Cherry Pie.
Naturally, I chose a light coral shade called Apple Strudel. It provides enough coverage to be worn alone, but if you want opaque coverage you may want to layer it over a lipstick. I find that if I apply more than one layer it feels too thick and gooey on my lips, so one layer is all I need.
It feels super moisturizing on the lips and has pretty decent lasting power – similar to the Megashine Lipglosses.
They’re unfortunately scented, but it’s not a scent that bothers me. It smells sweet, and reminds me of strawberries and cream.
To see all of the shades swatched, check out Makeup And Beauty Blog.
I really like these glosses and would definitely try other shades. I like that they are a bit thicker than the Megalast Lipglosses, so they stick around longer and feel moisturizing on the lips.
- Great color – looks great when worn alone
- Can feel a bit thick and gooey on the lips if too much is applied.
- Scented like sweet candy – this might bother some.
Price: $5, NYX, ULTA.
