Review + Swatches: Nyx Intense Butter Gloss

Review of Nyx Intense Butter Gloss - New Spring 2015

I can't get enough of new lip products so I buy quite a lot of them, especially those in the drugstore price range. New formulas are particularly exciting to me! These Intense Butter Glosses by Nyx are a new addition to their line as of this spring and I'm a fan! They come in 12 shades in a great range of color.

I think their regular Butter Gloss is nice, but these are great for those of us who tend to like more pigment in our lip products. I'm usually a lipstick type of girl - not gloss - but these are so super pigmented I don't feel like I'm missing my lipstick. They're almost like a gloss/lipstick hybrid. Sometimes a glossy finish is fun, and on those days I'm reaching for my Intense Butter Gloss!

You can see quick swatches of the six shades I own below and my un-photoshopped, close-up mouth region. (Huzzah!)

You can see from the swatches that the very light shades can settle a little or be patchy, but from a regular human distance, I don't notice. I enjoy all of the colors I picked up even though Chocolate Crepe looks a little like I put chocolate frosting on my lips. (In a good way though, right?) Originally I just bought Banana Split and Berry Strudel because they were unique shades, but then I had to get four more.

These aren't sticky, smell like cake, and I don't find they migrate around my mouth. They definitely wear off when I eat and they leave leftover mouth marks on my coffee mug in the morning. I like that the darker shades leave a bit of a stain though, so I don't have to reapply too often.

You can find these at Ulta or on the Nyx website for around $6 each but I got mine BOGO 50%. There's a sale on Nyx at Ulta almost every other week so wait around for that.

Have you tried these glosses yet? What did you think? Which color is your favorite?

Ooh I keep seeing these at Target and always wonder if I should give them a shot or not. I'm not a fan of gloss and rather use lipstick but after reading that you say they're not sticky I might give it a try and buy one :)

Some of my men friends always feel disturbed by my glasses and beer bottles, because I always leave a huge, bright stain of lipstick on them. I wish there was a lippie that din't leave so much marks! I am loving these though, the toasted marshmallow is my favorite! ^_^
