I personally prefer hydrating glossy formulas when it comes to my lip products. I have been a huge fan of the NYX Butter Glosses for a few years now and the launch of the Intense Butter Glosses was quite anticipated by me. And I would love to share my thoughts on these glosses with you today.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss ($6.00) – Smother your lips with a silky gloss bursting with color! Our Intense Butter Gloss has the same mouth-watering texture and scent of the original formula with even more color payoff in 24 new delectable shades.
NYX Intense Butter Glosses are a new addition to NYX Butter Glosses family. These glosses come in a very familiar tube packaging with the cap being coloured gun-metal. The tube also reflects the colour of the gloss as it is completely opaque. The amount of product is traditionally 8 ml or 0.27 fl oz. All glosses are heavily scented and I can describe it as a very sweet vanilla. The scent does not linger that much after application. Intense Butter Glosses are currently available in 24 shades ranging from true nudes to pinks and purples, reds and oranges and deep vampy shades.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Spice Cake is officially described as a ‘deep plum‘ and is a slightly muted red violet cream with strong cooler undertones and a glossy finish. This is a favourite of mine as it has an absolutely amazing formula. It goes on completely opaque and even with a single swipe. The colour is absolutely gorgeous and vibrant yet very sophisticated.
The doe-foot applicator allows you to apply the product both evenly and precisely. This particular shade lasts 4-5 hours on me and feels very hydrating. Such a bright gloss goes surprisingly well with many different looks and its muted character is even applicable for the business casual style, so it’s pretty much office-friendly.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Oatmeal Raisin is officially described as a ‘deep mauve‘ and is more of a toned down eggplant magenta cream with a beautiful glossy finish. I really like this colour as well for how cool-toned and deep it is. It leans quite bright mauve-purple in direct flash but appears to be way deeper and darker in real life.
Oatmeal Raisin is a beautiful shade but it is somehow a bit harder to apply evenly. It goes on semi-opaque with one swipe and you’ll have to apply two-three times to get it even and opaque. The doe-foot applicator is exactly the same as with the Spice Cake – it is easy to line the lips and to draw quite a precise line with it. Is lasts for four hours on my lips.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Black Cherry Tart is officially described as a ‘deep vamp purple‘ and is a very dark, blackened purple cream with strong cool undertones and a glossy finish. I am completely in love with the shade but I do not really like the formula of this one. It is hard to apply it evenly although it does look good from a distance.
Black Cherry Tart is a gorgeous vampy colour and I can’t get enough of it. But it definitely requires quite a lot of time to be applied properly and evenly. The doe-foot applicator does not help much with this particular shade, unfortunately. It sets into lip lines a bit but that is not that noticeable in a real life. It is more of a love-hate relationship with this one.
Overall, I really do like the NYX Intense Butter Glosses for the creamy, glossy, full-coverage formula. These glosses seem to be very hydrating that is crucial for me during colder months. They are easy to apply (with the exception of the Black Cherry Tart) and are a pleasure to wear. I have three more glosses to review but I can definitely recommend these glosses for a try.
