Possibly one of the best and cheapest glosses on the market right now is the NYX Butter Gloss ($5) in my opinion. These beautifully flavored glosses are available in twelve shades…
But that’s part of my problem.
I think NYX Butter Gloss is possibly one of the nicest gloss formulas in the budget world at the moment. Literally the name translates to the formula as these have a buttery, creamy texture that hugs lips with a moisturizing finish that’s sure to please even the driest of dry lips.
The formula provides medium to sheer coverage depending on the shade you purchase. These melt on lips providing color, hydration, and a glossy shine. They have a tasty fruity sugar cookie-like flavor that isn’t overpowering and quite pleasant.
I think the gloss wears incredibly comfortable. It’s lightweight, isn’t sticky, but has a bit of tack to allow the glosses to wear quite strong at around four hours without fading, migrating, or drying out.
Now…my only issue with the gloss is the shades. Most of the shades are milky colors that aren’t quite to my liking as they look very mod on me. Some shades that do work for me are Cherry Pie (red) and Cherry Cheese Cake (orange) which have excellent, opaque color but aren’t pale, pastel, or nude like the other shades in the collection. If you’re fairer with less pigmented lips you’ll likely be able to wear all of these colors without an issue but those with medium or deeper skin tones and pigmented lips might find the shades are a little zombie-like on lips.
Peaches and Cream
Vanilla Cream Pie
Peach Cobbler, Tiramisu, Apple Strudel, Vanilla Cream Pie, Cheery Cheesecake
Strawberry Parfait, Eclair, Peaches and Cream, Merengue, Creme Brulee
Maple Blondie and Cherry Pie
I wish I could wear ALL these shades because the formula is outstanding on these glosses.
I’d suggested the deeper shades for the best experience for those with pigmented lips!
Excellent formula, tasty, wears long, and cheap! It’s just the shade selection that fails to work for me here but aside from that NYX Butter Gloss is a luxuriously cheap treat for lips!
