The year of 2016 was the busiest and the most challenging one I’ve experienced so far. I have to admit it has been quite a struggle to balance work, personal life and my blogging at the same time. Especially with some huge work-related projects I had to run in December. Nevertheless, I am thankful to you if you still enjoy reading my blog and I hope to do my best at publishing more often from now on.
A couple of months ago I published a post with my thoughts on the NYX Intense Butter Glosses range. I’ve mentioned there that I still have three more glosses to review. With quite a delay I have all three reviewed for 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.
As you might remember I was quite impressed with the formula of the Intense Butter Glosses. What I especially loved about them is how full coverage these glosses are! The three darker shades I reviewed performed beautifully with the darkest one being a bit harder to apply evenly. Though I still enjoyed it quite a lot!
NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Tres Leches is the lightest shade I own. It is officially described as ‘nude‘ and I would say that it is a medium pinky beige colour with slightly warmer undertones and a very glossy finish. It is somehow the least favourite of mine though I love my nudes so much.
As you may see the lighter shade performs a tad bit worse compared to the darker or more vibrant glosses from the range. It tends to set into lip lines that is visible from a distance. I guess it can actually be used together with a nude lip liner though I haven’t tried it that way yet. On my skin tone being more on a cooler side it looks strangely warm-toned so I use it quite rarely. It lasts for about 3 hours on my lips that is the worst performance out of all six glosses I’ve tried.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Chocolate Crepe is officially described as ‘deep beige‘ and is a warm-toned medium dark redwood brown shade with a beautiful glossy finish. This is one of my favourite shades as it looks especially beautiful paired with some warm-toned looks. It also leans deeper, darker brown in real life than it appears with flash.
The formula of the Chocolate Crepe is beautiful and can be compared to the Spice Cake in terms of application. It glides on easily and neither emphasises lip lines or sets into these lines. It easily lasts on my lips for 4-5 hours as well. The doe-foot applicator helps a lot with this lip gloss and makes it easier to apply the product precisely that is crucial with darker shades.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Toasted Marshmallow is officially described as ‘mauve purple‘ and is deeper amaranth purple shade with slightly cool purple undertones and an intense glossy finish. This is another shade I absolutely adore and do use it quite a lot. The formula is wonderful as well.
I believe that such shades look the best on me and it is quite a wearable darker lip colour for me that I honestly enjoy using. Luckily it performs beautifully and the full coverage it provides makes it a beautiful everyday lip colour for me. It goes one quite opaque in a single swipe and covers the lips evenly. It lasts for 5 hours on my lips with no touch-ups.
Having reviewed six shades out of 24 that are currently available, I have to admit that the quality and the formula differ quite a bit from a shade to shade. Lighter shades perform less beautifully compared to the darker ones. As a result the darker shades do look lovely on the lips. My favourites are the Toasted Marshmallow, Spice Cake and Chocolate Crepe. I strongly recommend checking these colours out if you like lip glosses that apply evenly and opaque and have an intense glossy finish. The Oatmeal Raisin is a gorgeous colour as well but it requires a bit more effort to be applied evenly.
