Review -- NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream & Cherry Pie

When it comes to lipgloss, I don't mind a sticky formula.

That's because a sticky gloss usually has pretty good staying power -- and I don't mind putting with some stickiness if it means I won't have to keep applying my gloss all day long.

(Well, I don't mind the stickiness until the wind picks up and keeps throwing my hair in face so it sticks to my lips like glue.  Then I absolutely, completely hate it.)

However, if there's a gloss that isn't at all sticky *and* can last a good long while, then I'm all over it. 

That's exactly what you get with the NYX Butter Glosses.

 These babies aren't sticky at all -- they're smooth and creamy, actually -- but the formula has enough thickness to it that the gloss winds up staying on your lips for quite a while.

Now, don't get me wrong -- they're still a gloss so they won't last all day.  But you don't have to keep reapplying like you would with most non-sticky glosses. 

I can get an hour and a half to two hours of wear out of the Butter Glosses, which is pretty impressive in my book.

They feature a doe foot applicator and are actually pretty opaque.  While you could layer them over a lipstick, I usually wear these all on their own because they color payoff is so good.

I purchased the glosses in Peaches and Cream & Cherry Pie.

In the grand tradition of NYX's completely baffling, totally off the mark shade names, Peaches and Cream isn't really peach at all.  It's really more of a mid-tone bright pink.

Cherry Pie is actually a fitting shade name -- the gloss is a nice, bright cherry red shade.

I absolutely love these glosses.  In addition to the smooth feel, long wear time, and opaque color, they have a yummy, kind of bakery inspired scent (it fits with all of the pastry-themed shade names) that  is delightful.  And they're nice and budget-friendly -- they're $4.99 at my local Ulta, but I think I purchased them during a BOGO-half off sale so they were an even better deal.

I will absolutely be buying more of these in the future. Creme Brulee and Eclair, in particular, are calling my name...

Have you tried the NYX Butter Glosses? What's your favorite drugstore lipgloss at the moment?


  1. These look really nice especially Peaches and Cream!

    Would you call these more of a liquid lipstick ?

    1. I wouldn't really call them a liquid lipstick -- they're just a bit too sheer for that. However, they are one of the more pigmented glosses I've tried. I can wear them all on their own, which I love. :)
