NYX Butter Glosses

Hi everyone! I feel like I've completely disappeared off the face of the earth recently because I've been so busy with uni but I am so happy to say I finally handed my dissertation in on Tuesday! It's actually such a strange feeling, I felt really stressed after I'd handed it in actually because it was out of my hands now and I didn't know how happy I was with it, but I'd gotten to the point where I couldn't stare at it any longer. I actually handed it in 9 days before the deadline which I never usually do but I feel like I can relax now while everyone is still trying to get it done which makes a nice change. I've still got three assignments and an exam though so I won't be able to post as often as I usually do but it's a start at least! Anyway I am so excited that there is finally a NYX counter that's opened near me, anyone who lives in the North East go to Boots in Middlesbrough and that's where it is, I was also at the Metro Centre yesterday and there is one opening in the Boots there as well, so nice to finally have things opening in the North East where there is hardly anything that bigger places have! I've wanted the NYX Butter Glosses for ages, I'm really not a lip gloss person, my hair always gets stuck in them and I hate the stickiness but I'd heard good things about these and I absolutely love NYX so I thought I'd give them a try.


I only picked up three because I wanted to see if I actually liked them first and I tried to get shades that were different from each other, so I ended up with Maple Blondie (deep peach), Creme Brulee (natural) and Madeleine (mid-tone nude). The website describes them as "butter soft and silky smooth" with a sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips, I never buy lip gloss but I'd seen so many people talk about how good these were and in pictures they always look so nice so I thought they would be really good for Spring and Summer, plus since a counter had just opened near me I really wanted to try some more products anyway because I've never had accessibility to these other than online.


Left to right: Maple Blondie, Creme Brulee, Madeleine

I need to say that I absolutely love the scent of these! If you've tried the Soft Matte Lip Creams they have a really similar scent to that, it's very sweet and has that vanilla scent, plus it tastes really nice on your lips. When I first applied it I absolutely loved the colours, they're so pigmented for a gloss but they aren't too full on, I feel like they have just the right amount of gloss before being too shiny. One thing I did notice though was that little line that appears in the middle of your lips when you put on a lip gloss was there, it did disappear really quickly but I don't know if it was me putting too much product on or if this happens all the time. They are a little sticky but it isn't too much, you kind of forget about that after you've applied them. The staying power isn't that good though but I think that's just to be expected with a lip gloss, they definitely come off after eating which I found out quickly but I don't expect them to last all day. I think Creme Brulee is so pretty, definitely a nice natural pink shade that would suit everyone, Maple Blondie I would probably reach for in the Summer and I love Madeleine, it looks really brown when swatched but it's just a really nice nude shade that isn't too brown.

I do really like these, I'm never disappointed with NYX products to be honest, I'd love to get some more shades plus they're only £5 which I think is so affordable. You get 8ml of product but I think these will last a while because you don't need to put a lot of product on and they are the perfect size for travelling or just keeping in your bag. I never normally mention anything like this on my blog but at the minute I'm so close to hitting 300 followers on Bloglovin so I'd appreciate it so much if you followed me, I'd be so excited to get to 300! Let me know in the comments if you've tried these and what you think!
