I have been nursing a slight obsession with NYX since I found out my local Target (which happens to be just across the road from work) stocks a lot of their products. It’s gotten to the stage where I often just “pop in” to see what’s available, often resulting in me leaving with a slightly emptier bank account. On one of these lunch time expeditions, I picked up one of the glorious Butter Glosses. The shelves were looking fairly dismal, with only a few items left on the shelf so I was very pleased with myself to nab the very last one in the shade Peach Cobbler
NYX is a great brand, born in sunny Los Angeles and thankfully, now available in Australia! They have a fabulous range of products and frequently release limited editions. They are also really affordable and a lot of their products are very good dupes for higher end (and more expensive) items, such as their Studio Perfect Primers (you can read my review of the Photo-Loving Primer here). I haven’t tried any of their foundation as yet but all of their colour products (blushes especially) have been wins for me so far.
The Product – Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler ($9.95)
The Butter Gloss comes in a grand total of 27 shades and won the Oprah Magazine 2013 Spring Makeup Awards in the Best New Lipsticks category. It is described as a “red-orange” which I think is quite accurate, it’s not quite as peachy as the name suggests. It’s a buttery lip gloss that can either be worn alone (it has a quite a nice colour payoff) or over lipstick. It does have a doe foot applicator (they can be very hit and miss) but this one seems ok, I didn’t have any issues using it. I think the packaging is quite cute too, it’s plastic but the colours are very bright and match the gloss inside.
Using the product
Very easy to apply, as I said before, I had no problems with the doe foot applicator. Although NYX say the formula is “never sticky”, I found it to be just a little bit sticky BUT not to the stage where I would stop wearing it. I have never worn it over lipstick, it’s such a pretty colour that I like to show it off on its own. As for longevity, it’s not the longest wearing gloss by any means. I found I had to reapply a few times during the day but I am yet to find a lip gloss last all day!
Very pretty colour
Easy to apply
Cheap as chips
Slightly too sticky for me
Doesn’t last very well
KaBOOM! Cosmetics gives NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler:
I think that for the price, this is a really great lip product. It’s definitely not perfect but it’s a really nice colour and I don’t think you will find better in the same price range (feel free to correct me here!). Are you a fan of the NYX range?
