NYX Intense Butter Glosses

As one of the biggest trends this year, I’ve got to give NYX props for providing a budget friendly product that actually delivers.

If you liked the NYX Butter Glosses (semi-sheer), the NYX Intense Butter Gloss, like the name states, is a more intense and pigmented version.  It has that similar dessert scent and the same texture that feels so buttery smooth.

The doe foot applicator has rounded tip, is shaped like a paddle (unlike most which are cylindrical).  I find that the flat slides help to spread the product more evenly across the lips and the rounded tip helps to get around the edges.

Pigmentation and application varied depending on the shade.

For the most part, the brights were the star shades of this range.  Apple Crisp, Orangesicle, Funnel Delight, Spice Cake, and Berry Strudel were really easy to apply.  The pigmentation was there after 1-2 layers and there wasn’t any settling into lip lines…the payoff was even and smooth.  Chocolate Crepe and Toasted Marshmellow applied the same way.

Banana Split and Sorbet settled into the lip lines quickly and I had to work at the layer application.  Too thin and you could see my lip pigmentation and too thick looked too caked on.  I had to settle with my lip lines showing or else it would look too thick on my lips.

I had high hopes for Black Cherry Tart since I don’t have anything like it in my collection.  The layers didn’t evenly as I wanted (look at my top lip) but with multiple layers, it was really opaque on the lips.

Unlike matte liquid lipsticks, the NYX Intense Butter Glosses don’t have amazing power (beware of transferring) but when worn with caution and care, they wore on the lips nicely.

Available in 12 shades for $5.99 at NYXcosmetics.com, ULTA, and Amazon.

    Spice Cake looks amazing on you! I’ve been wanting to try the NYX Butter Glosses for ages now but as we have to order online it’s so difficult, so your swatches have really helped me out! xx

    These are all gorgeous — especially Chocolate Crepe! The Black Cherry Tart is outstanding on you.

  • Woh these all look pretty cool. When you say they transfer, does that mean they wear off onto anything and everything? They kinda look like the type of glosses that do haha

  • Oh wowzaaa! Funnel delight and Spice cake are sooo pretty!!! I own three of the normal butter glosses and I love LOVE the formulation and how it feels. Totally would love to check these out in person!
