NYX Butter Gloss swatches and review

Hi guys!  I believe I have enough of these NYX Butter Gloss' to show you swatches!  I picked up one of these when they were first released what, a month and a half ago?  I then picked up two more, and since NYX is BOGO 1/2 off, I picked two more up today. 

First things first.....I absolutely am head over heels for these glosses!  I've said it multiple times before, but I am a lip gloss kinda girl.  I've never felt comfortable wearing colors on my lip, but I am getting braver nowadays, and these are perfect for me.

These apply like your typical gloss, but they are pretty saturated with color, and they are a lip butter to, so very moisturizing.  They do have a bit of a scent, I wanna say it's a cupcake type scent, but I'm honestly so use to wearing these now, I don't smell it at all.

The one downside to these is they last only minutes.  I would say I get probably 30 minutes from them, I would probably get more if I didn't "smack" my lips so much, but I can't help it, these feel so lovely on my lips!

From L to R: Strawberry Parfait, Vanilla Cream Pie, Merengue, Eclair and Creme Brulee

Strawberry Parfait - This is the brightest one I own.  It's a saturated, dark pink which is very wearable.  I actually wear this without feeling self conscious like I usually do.

Vanilla Cream Pie - Honestly, I thought the name Vanilla Cream Pie would be very neutral, and while it is, it's still very pink.  This is probably the exact color of my lips, and it's the one color I wear most often.

Merengue - I wanna call this one a lavender pink.  I think this will go well with my skin tone (I just bought it today, so haven't tried it yet).

Eclair - This one seems to be a little more nude than Vanilla Cream Pie, but they look very close.

Creme Brulee - This is the nudest one I own, and it seems to have the least saturated amount of color in it.  When I apply it, it kinda just looks like I'm wearing gloss.

My swatches are in the same order as the above pics.  From L to R: Strawberry Parfait, Vanilla Cream Pie, Merengue, Eclair and Creme Brulee.

I absolutely love these!  I literally carry all of these around in my purse.  Like I really need to carry three, now FIVE of these at all times!  Whateve!  I really hope NYX keeps these around forever, cause I really, really love them.

Any of you pick these up?  I need some suggestions for other colors!


  1. I am in love with these too! They are amazing but I can't stand how you don't get long wear out of them. I feel like I apply every other minute(ok not really, but you get what I mean?!) I'll deal with that though since they are awesome!

  2. Why can't they last at least an hour?!? That's ok, they are so comfortable to wear that I really don't mind applying so often.

  3. I haven't had a chance to use these yet, but after seeing your review and swatches I think I'll have to get some! Such gorgeous colours. x

  4. They really are lovely! And for the price, you really can't go wrong!

  5. I need to get my hands in all of these!

  6. Wow that are really nice colours. *-*
