NYX Butter Gloss's, My New Obsession

Some of you may already know that lip products are my favourite beauty items, you will especially know this if you have read my beauty storage and collection post (here) as I have a whole drawer dedicated to my lip products and the top of my ‘Her Clutter Box’ is covered in lipstick stands,  so it should come as no surprise that when I discovered the famous NYX Butter Glosses I became a little obsessed. On my recent trip to Orlando for my birthday I picked up 5 of these little babies, unfortunately one has gone missing with my MAC ‘Bronze Shimmer’ lipstick which makes me really sad but I am sure I will find them hiding in a handbag somewhere so. Today I wanted to show you my little collection.

There really isn't much to say about these that someone hasn’t already said, I know you have probably read 101 reviews on them, but what’s wrong with one more, I suppose my opinion could be different to that of others.

These glosses are insanely creamy, lightweight and really comfortable to wear. They’re are non-stick which is always a plus because you don’t have the ‘hair getting stuck in the lip-gloss because of the wind problem’ and I know I am not the only one who suffers from this problem and the extra bonus is that they smell deliciously sweet (the scent kind of reminds of vanilla and the smell of the MAC lipsticks and who doesn’t love the smell of them).

All of the Butter Glosses I've tried so far have semi-opaque colour coverage, some more sheer than others and the wear depends entirely on what I'm doing, but I usually get a few hours out of these.
Now onto the shades: I currently own 5 (one is missing), I might sound crazy saying this but I really do want to try pick up the whole collection, if you've tried them you might understand my obsession because you know how great they are.

Ok so onto the colours, first up is Vanilla Cream Pie, which is a great everyday pink if you're looking for something that's a step up from a nude, but still pretty neutral. Merengue is a very cool-toned lilac pink. I really love this shade right now and I like that it can be built up or sheered out I also find myself wearing a lot over my MAC ‘Up The Amp’ or my Lime Crime ‘D’Lilac’ lipsticks to give them a nice glossy finish rather than a matt.

Now for something more adventurous, I have Maple Blondie and Peaches and Cream. If I'm in the mood for hot pink lips, I need to look no further than Peaches and Cream, really bright summery bink great for adding pop of colour to an otherwise neutral makeup. Maple Blondie is a beautiful hot coral pink, which is a colour I always have a weakness for it looks a bit more pink in the tube but when you wear it you realise it’s a beautiful bright coral colour again perfect for the Summer time and adding a pop to an otherwise rather boring makeup.

The NYX Butter Glosses come in a variety of permanent shades and I know really wish I had picked up more as they are obviously not so easy to find in the UK and Ireland but I’m sure I will hunt them down and start building on my collection soon.
