Review: NYX butter gloss in apple strudel

IMG_5965

Believe it or not, this is the first Nyx product I have ever tried.  Sure, I heard a lot of raves about the brand, but have never gotten around to purchasing anything.  A friend of mine gifted this to me and now I can say, I am no longer a Nyx product virgin.

This lip gloss is described as being buttery soft and silky smooth.  I love that it has great color pigmentation and stays well without being overly sticky.  It also has a sweet fragrance to it, almost like cookie dough.  I am sensitive to fragrances, but this didn’t irritate me at all.

You can see by the swatch that it has great color pay off and this color in particular is a pretty soft pink.  It is not a color I would have chosen for myself and I’m not the biggest fan of wearing it on its own.  I feel washed out because of how light the color is.  But paired on top of a lipstick?  Perfect!  I love the formulation of it so much that I am going to definitely purchase this product in different shades.  And the best part?  It is super affordable.

        my favorite is ‘sugar cookie’ which more of a fuchsia color, but still wearable. And then I love the intense butter glosses..my favorite of those is ‘tres leeches’. 🙂

  3. I am obsessed with the NYX Butter glosses. I own 4 of them and I just think they are perfect for everyday wear. Everytime I go to the drugstore I pick up another one!

      1. The 3 I love are Peaches & Cream, Vanilla Cream Pie & Strawberry Parfait. The Peaches & Cream is a more coral pink which is great for the spring. The Vanilla Cream Pie is an everyday sheer pink/rose gloss and the Strawberry Parfait has a berry tone to it, but subtle. Very pretty. If I had to recommend one to start with I’d say the Vanilla Cream Pie for sure!

    I looove NYX! Their soft matte lip creams, blushes and lip liners are some of my favs. But I’ve never been a fan of lipglosses. But looking at the pigmentation, that looks amazing. Do you find it to be sticky at all?

    1. I wouldn’t say it was sticky. Perhaps just a little tacky which helps with the staying power.
