I’ve clearly been hiding under the rock of high-end products for years and haven’t tried any NYX products until very recently. I liked what I tried so put a request out to Instagram and Facebook to if anyone had any recommendations for amazing NYX products. These were overwhelming yeses so I thought I had to try them.
Butter Lipstick in Big Cherry
Well it’s a red so I’m almost certainly going to love it. It definitely lived up to its name and was so creamy and soft. I’ve been wearing mostly matte lipsticks lately so it was nice to have a bit of a change as this gives a slight sheen to it and was moisturising.
I was expecting to have to reapply this throughout the day and I did, but it felt so lovely to apply directly from the bullet to reapply. It lasted about 3/4 hours and did transfer into everything I touched but I could forgive it as it’s such a pretty shade!
I have to admit, I didn’t really like the packaging. It felt cheap and for some reason, I just didn’t like the bright red case with the white writing. But for £5.50 for a lipstick, I guess I’d prefer the money was spent on product development rather than fancy packaging.
As you can see from the swatch, this was really pigmented which did impress me. It looks matte here but it did have a sheen to it when worn in real-life.
Intense Butter Gloss in Apple Crisp
I can see why this gloss is called intense as it definitely is very pigmented. It’s not for the faint hearted. It gives such a strong colour and I love a bold lip so I won’t complain. The applicator does bring out quite a lot of product so I tended to make sure that I wiped off any excess before applying.
Another thing I loved was the smell, I loved the smell of this. Usually I hate scented products but this smelt amazing and reminded me of the Collection glosses that I recently reviewed.
I really wanted to love this as the colour was amazing but it just would not stay put. It transferred into absolutely everything including my kids, cup and cutlery.
When I used my NYX lip primer (see my March Favourites), and I used as little as possible, it didn’t transfer as much. I love the colour so will definitely wear it again, but probably not when going out for a meal!
Which NYX products do you love? Any more recommendations for me to try?
