Even though you won't think it by the time I've finished raving about these babies, I am not a lip gloss person. I prefer the pigmentation of a lipstick, and I can't abide my hair getting stuck to my mouth on windy days. About 18 months ago, my friend Heather sent me over my first Butter Gloss in Cherry Pie and from that moment onwards I was hooked. In fact, one of the first products I checked for when I first heard that NYX were setting up shop in Ireland were the Butter Glosses. I think there are about 12 shades available in Ireland- again not as many as the US- but plenty to keep you ticking over! As you can see from the swatches below, there is not a huge difference in some of the colours (but of course, enough to justify owning them!)
Now what makes these lip glosses appealing enough to tempt a lipstick fiend to turn to the glossy side? Firstly, these feel great on the lips- soft, balmy, and most importantly, not sticky at all. The little doe foot applicators make applying these in a hurry a doddle. The glosses themselves pack nice pigmentation- from the nude shades like Creme Brulée and Tiramisu to the more pigmented shades like Merengue and Cherry Pie- there is something to appeal to all. These last well and don't fade terribly- I find that over time, they just tend to lose their shine but a quick swipe of the applicator will put you on the right track again. These also taste completely inoffensive which is important to those with sensitive dispositions like myself.
Enough chat, clap your eyes on some of the colours that are available:
So tell me, have you tried any of these bad boys yet? Are any of these colours catching your eye?
