I have four of the five NYX Butter Glosses I own in my possession at the moment (Strawberry Parfait, where have you gone?) and I couldn't tell you my favourite. Seriously, it changes daily. Hourly.
The NYX Butter Glosses are probably the smoothest and most comfortable lip glosses I've ever worn. They glide on like a dream (some could say they glide on like butter, no?) and feel amazing on the lips. Sure, you can feel you're wearing something when you have a NYX Butter Gloss on but it's not unbearable, it's actually really nice! One of my favourite thing about the NYX Butter Glosses is the fact that they don't dry my lips out. I find that if I apply lip gloss on to my lips when they're already dry it makes it a million times worse but not with these! I can actually use a NYX Butter Gloss in place of a lip balm when I'm strapped for time and it works just fine!
As you can see from the swatches above, the NYX Butter Glosses are really pigmented. They all pack a lot of punch and are really opaque! You can definitely apply these over a lipstick or other lip colour but I tend to just wear them by themselves. They're pretty enough to do so and, well, I just really love showing these bad boys off!
For a super smooth lip gloss, I find the lasting power to be really great. I find the gloss finish will last on my lips for an hour or so but the pigmentation will remain for an hour or more after that. I love that I'm left with colour once the gloss has gone!
Finally, I couldn't review the NYX Butter Glosses without commenting on the smell. Oh, the smell. These smell absolutely amazing. They all smell like a vanilla cupcake mix and it's honestly a pleasure to smell while it's on the lips, trust me!
I absolutely love the NYX Butter Glosses and I'll definitely be picking up the rest of the colours in the collection. For me they're like Pokemon; gotta catch 'em all! The NYX Butter Glosses retail for $5.00 in the US but they're now available in Australia! You can get the whole collection of NYX Butter Glosses at selected Target stores for $9.95 each.
Have you tried the NYX Butter Glosses? What did you think? What's your favourite shade?
