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.

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!
