NYX Butter Gloss

I first tried the NYX Butter Gloss when I attended PhameExpo, I received it in a goody bag along with a few other cool NYX products. They gave me a bright orange shade, which I'm not too crazy about, but the formula felt smooth and comfortable on my lips, so I ended up buying three more! To this day, I'm still loving the formula and wanting more shades.  

Here are the NYX BUtter Glosses up close. I love the cute packaging!

Swatches from Top to bottom: Strawberry Parfait, Cherry Cheesecake, Meringue, and Cherry Pie. 

Strawberry Parfait is a bright hot pink. Cherry Cheesecake is a bright true orange. Meringue is cool baby pink. Cherry Pie is a blue red. These swatches are two swipes each. They may appear more or less sheer on the lips, depending on how pigmented your lips are.

Claims: "Add a little more sweetness to your lips with a touch of the Butter Lip Gloss available in 12 scrumptious colors! Get creamy sheer to medium coverage on your lips without that sticky sensation."
Pigmentation: These are very pigmented for a sheer to medium gloss! I was surprised at how great these really showed up on the lips. The more you layer it, the more opaque it gets.
Finish/Texture: The finish on all of these shades is creamy, and they have high shine. The texture is extremely smooth, kind of like butter! 
Lasting Power: I only had an hour of wear before the color completely faded. 
Scent: These do have a strong sweet vanilla scent. It doesn't bother me at all, it reminds me of a vanilla cupcake! It fades quickly, after a few minutes.
Packaging: I like how the packaging matches the color of the gloss inside. The applicator is doefoot and the tube is made of plastic. They contain 0.23 oz (6.5 g) of product. 
Price/Availability: I paid $5 each at Ulta.


  • There's a variety of shades to choose from, 12 total
  • Great pigmentation for a sheer-medium gloss
  • Smooth, buttery formula
  • Leaves lips feeling hydrated
  • Inexpensive
  • Nice scent
  • Cute packaging


  • These only last about 1 hour on my lips before completely fading

I really wasn't expecting to love these as much as I do! There are so many different pretty shades to choose from, they smell delicious, and the packaging is adorable. The formula is very smooth, and buttery, just as the name suggests. They aren't long wearing, but I don't mind having to reapply. They are often on sale at Ulta, and on the NYX website. 

I highly suggest trying these if you're a non-sticky gloss lover like me!

Have you tried any of the NYX Butter Glosses yet?

  1. I am usually not a lipgloss kind of girl, but the red one looks very pretty!:D I like when glosses are very pigmented :D


  2. I have three of these and I quite like them!

  3. I LOVE the nyx butter glosses! You give the best reviews! :)

  4. The colours are super pretty - They look glossy & pigmented. I like that you say they're hydrating, thats important to me as I have the driest lips.

  5. I bought a couple of these but I find the formula extremely sticky. They feel really nice at first but fade away leaving a tacky film over my lips. :(

    1. Really? I find that these are very smooth! I've never had that happen to me be before.

  6. These look amazing, the colours are so vibrant! I think Strawberry Parfait is my favourite!

  12. Hmmm...interesting. I super like the colors especially the Strawberry Parfait. I am not a gloss person but upon seeing these lip glosses, I want to try it out.

  13. Pretty shades, although I hate reapplying lip products so the wear time for these is definitely off putting x

  14. I bought a giftset of three of these glosses which looks sooo pretty! I can't wait to try them :D

  15. I'm so glad you love them too! I only have Merengue & Maple Blondie right now but I'm obsessed with them. They are my favorite drugstore lipgloss! I plan on getting Peaches & Cream, Creme Brule, and Vanilla Cream Pie soon.

  16. How do they compare to the maybelline high shine lip glosses? Those are my favorite :D

    1. They are completely different. The texture is much thinner and they don't last as long. I would say that Maybelline's last longer and are more pigmented/have a thicker formula. Both are great:)

  17. Oh these look amazing, such a pity they only last an hour though... The bright orange one definitely is an eye-catcher, at least from the swatch. Such a pity NYX is so hard to get here. By the way, I love your blog and am a new follower x

  19. These are freakin' stunning! They have been on my to-try list for a while, I might just have to get a couple the next time I'm at the drugstore. Thanks for the great swatches!!
