I have been wearing the NYX megashine lip glosses for as long as I can remember! Then the butter glosses were released, and because my lip product section of the makeup drawer was feeling a bit overcrowded at the time, I skipped on them. While perusing Ulta's website late one evening, I came across this set and I just couldn't pass it up. I'm glad I didn't.
These colors are different then anything else I've ever owned. My favorite amongst the three is "spice cake" and my least favorite "black cherry tart" since it always travels a bit outside of the lip lines (as you can see in the photos below). It's the formulation and pigmentation that really wow me though. They do need to be layered once or twice to get a perfect look but are so opaque in color once done that I would assume they are a shiny lipstick if I didn't know better. The colors themselves are actually exactly as they look in the packaging which is helpful. They are extremely creamy feeling on the lips but at the same time they do have a slightly tacky/waxy feel which helps them adhere to the lips for a couple of hours, leaving behind a stain when they finally wear off. That stickiness is nowhere near uncomfortable as the Mac lip glosses which are just unbearable for me.
NYX got their applicator just right as always with the soft, thin and pretty flat doe foot style wand with a rounded tip to keep things even and smooth looking. The packaging is also so adorable with the signature NYX heart print. And I'm obviously crazy about how they've named them after cakes!
I truly love everything about these glosses and now I need to get myself some of the lighter shades. It usually goes the other way around doesn't it?
Have you given these butter glosses a try? If you have did you like them? Which shades would you recommend I go for next? If you haven't would you like to?
Thanks so much for stopping in!
