I've never been one for lip gloss. It's always reminded me of the cheap, glittery rubbish you'd get in make up sets as a child. Also, up until recently, I preferred the matte finish. I've slowly been wearing glossier products, though, with lip crayons and Revlon Lip Butters becoming firm favourites in my collection. After reading many positive reviews on the NYX Butter Glosses, I decided to try one for myself. I bought the NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler from eBay because it worked out cheaper than buying it from the UK site (if only they had free P&P!). I'm seriously impressed. First of all, it smells like vanilla cupcakes! The colour is also beautiful. It looks very orange in the tube, but goes on coral. It's also much more pigmented than I thought it'd be. Its pigmentation is similar to my Revlon Lip Butters (bearing in my mind that I don't own the darker, most pigmented shades). It feels balmy on the lips, and even though it's ever so slightly thick, it's thick in a good way. It means it stays on for longer, lasting a few hours. It fades evenly, too, and this is what I'm liking most about glossier, lighter lip products. Even after eating, the colour is consistent across my lips. This will probably be in my next Favourites post, and I already have my eye on the other shades (Apple Strudel in particular!).
Are you a fan of the NYX Butter Glosses? Or lip gloss in general?
