Nyx Butter Gloss in 'Peaches & Cream', 'Creme Brulee' & 'Apple Strudel' - Review, Photos & Swatches
If you’ve been following me for quite some time, you’ll know that I am seriously addicted to these glosses. And that’s saying a lot, considering that I am not a lip gloss lover. These are the NYX Butter Gloss in ‘Peaches & Cream’, ‘Creme Brulee’ & ‘Apple Strudel’.

Nyx Butter Gloss in ‘Peaches & Cream’, ‘Creme Brulee’ & ‘Apple Strudel’ Product Description/Claims According to the Nyx Website

Buttery soft and silky smooth, our scrumptious new Butter Lip Gloss tastes as sweet as a sugar cookie—and makes your lips look downright luscious. Swipe it on alone or over your favorite lipstick for creamy sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky


PACKAGING

The packaging of these lip glosses are pretty straight forward. You can easily tell the shades just by looking at the tube alone. What you see is what you get. The lip gloss has a sponge/doe-foot applicator inside that allows you to easily apply the product onto your lips. It does not include a box, so all of the information that you’re going to need is already written in the packaging. What I don’t like about the packaging I think, is that it’s pretty hard to detect the amount of product that’s remaining inside the tube. Other than that, I’m all good.


SHADE

These lip glosses are pigmented enough to be worn alone, but a lot more beautiful when worn on top of a lipstick. Below are their description according to the NYX website.

        •      Peaches & Cream – Described as ‘Pink Coral’
        •      Creme Brulee – Described as the ‘Natural’ shade.
        •      Apple Strudel – Described as the ‘Peach’ shade.

Peaches & Cream, of course is the most pigmented lip gloss in the bunch, followed by Apple Strudel, then Creme Brulee. Out of all the three, I find myself gravitating towards Creme Brulee a lot this month, since it’s the most neutral-based color out of all three. I love paring it with nude lipsticks, and it’s very easy to pair it with any eye look I have. I like using ‘Peaches & Cream’ if I want a bright, statement lip color, as this one I often use to top off my current lippie. Also, if I want to spice up my neutral lipstick, I use this one as well. Apple Strudel is my favorite, flamingo-esque-colored lipstick. I use it for my orange lippies. Like I said, these lip glosses are pigmented on their own but I just LOOVE using them on top of my lipsticks.


FORMULATION/CONSISTENCY

Nyx Butter Gloss in 'Peaches & Cream', 'Creme Brulee' & 'Apple Strudel' - Review, Photos & Swatches

Each of these glosses are creamy, buttery and non-sticky. They definitely give you a bang for your buck considering that these are still drugstore lip products. They’re quite moisturizing so even if you failed to review a lip balm prior to applying this one then you’re good. It provides a sheer to medium coverage, depending on the shade. If you have highly pigmented lips, like mine, then you’re going to need to layer two to three coats of even the most pigmented shade for it to show onto your lips. Like I said, it’s not sticky, so it’s very comfortable to wear, but its still a bit tacky so it can last for at least a couple of hours or so on your lips.


APPLICATION

Since it comes with an applicator, applying this lip product was never a concern. I guess my only advise about this product is that make sure you exfoliate your lips prior to using it, otherwise, it will clearly show (unless you’re going to use it on top of a lipstick) your lips’ imperfections (chappy lips, fine lines, etc).


PERFORMANCE/LONGEVITY

Like I said, these glosses are so creamy, it really has a nice texture, and it’s not sticky at all. It has a bit of tact, but that’s understandable since it can prolong the staying power of the product. The lip gloss lasted on me for more than three hours, without retouching.


SCENT, ETC

Nyx Butter Gloss in 'Peaches & Cream', 'Creme Brulee' & 'Apple Strudel' - Review, Photos & Swatches

All of these butter glosses have their own distinctive sweet, vanilla, candy-ish scent that is not overpowering. All of them are different from each other, and out of all three, I really like ‘Peaches & Cream’s scent the most. It reminds me of a candy that I used to eat when I was a kid. I wish I remember what it was. Lol. Nevertheless, all of them are have a really sweet and subtle scent that I’m sure everyone is going to love. Unless you’re really VERY particular about scented makeup products, then these are not the lip glosses for you (or any of the lip glosses from Nyx because they’re all scented). They also have a sweet and subtle taste that is of course, related to their scent, but again, it’s not overpowering.


TO SUMMARIZE


PROS
CONS
Simple, straight-forward packaging
Every info that you’re going to need is already printed in the packaging
Color of the tube reflects the butter gloss’ shade
Comes with a doe-foot applicator
Pigmented/opaque. Can be worn alone
Creamy, buttery texture
Not sticky
Moisturizing
Lasts for approximately 4 hours without retouching
Has a subtle vanilla/candy scent
Has a subtle taste
Affordable
Available locally
Hard to detect how much remaining product the tube still has
Not all shades are equally opaque
Need to exfoliate first prior to application since it can highlight your lips’ imperfections
May need a couple of layers more for highly pigmented lips
Has a subtle taste & smell
Unhygienic (some people doesn’t like the idea of glosses with doe-foot applicators)
THE VERDICT
4 HEARTS! YAY!
I really like these lip glosses! They really give you your money’s worth. They’re not sticky yet they give you a decent amount of wear time. The line also offer you 12 shades to choose from which is a lot, if I may say so, and being that I am already addicted to the formula, I might get more!
WORTH THE MONEY? REPURCHASE?
UHH, YEAH!
Really worth the purchase and will definitely repurchase (a different shade of course).


PRODUCT BASICS
Product Name | NYX Butter Glosses

All in all, I’m in love with these butter glosses and I will definitely be getting more of them. I now get it why they named it as ‘Butter Gloss’ because they’re definitely the butteriest, creamiest lip glosses I have ever encountered. I guess I should stop calling them lip gloss, huh?

How about you? What’s your favorite NYX Lip product/product? Do you own any of these butter glosses? What do you think? Let me know!

    • http://www.yettezkiedoodle.com/ Yette

      Thanks, Aiko. I just exfoliate my lips using my toothbrush 3-4x a week.

      • aiko borja

        wow ! thank you for answering my question will definitely do that.

  • http://www.intotheblush.com/ Kenny

    i love the color of peaches and cream, it reminds me so much of barbie and nicki minaj but the “pinkness” of this one’s more decent naman and very wearable.

    • http://www.yettezkiedoodle.com/ Yette

      Thanks, Kenny.

  • meganlev_13

    the pigment of peaches & cream are soo cute kso d sya bagay sa skin tone ko, tan kse ako e.

    • http://www.yettezkiedoodle.com/ Yette

      Aww, perhaps a better shade?

      • meganlev_13

  • rhania escueta

    • http://www.yettezkiedoodle.com/ Yette

      Thanks, Rhania. I’m sure you’ll love it.

      • rhania escueta

        definitely! very affordable for 250ea =) pasok sa budget ko hihi

  • Fati Recede

    I would def go for peaches & cream! I love the pigmentation it gives and the fact that it doens’t smell like vanilla. I am not a fan of vanilla scented lip products. I really feel 101% female when I use lip glosses over my favorite pinkish coral lippie

    • http://www.yettezkiedoodle.com/ Yette

      Yup. you’re definitely going to love Peaches & Cream. It has a subtle vanilla/candy scent but it’s definitely not overpowering.

  • Sion Bernardo

    yung apple strudel nice din po..

    • http://www.yettezkiedoodle.com/ Yette

      Thanks, it’s nice. I love it too.

  • Leilani Gamboa

    Grabe sis dami mo na nareview na lip glosses. I have seen this NYX lipglosses a lot of times pero I am very hesitant to buy parang di kasi maganda baka masayang lang pera ko, but now that have seen the swatches, i decided to try it na rin, hihi.. I like the peaches and cream. do you prefer Nyx over your paintbox sis?

    • http://www.yettezkiedoodle.com/ Yette

      Haha, di naman ganun karami.I love lippies more. I like this more because it’s not as sticky and mas nagagamit ko lang talaga to, lol.

      • Leilani Gamboa

        weird ko, ako lang ata nararamihan sa tatlo.. yung isang lipgloss ko kasi which is paintbox hirap na hirap akong ubusin, almost 1 year na pero dio pa rin nakakalahati..so 3 lipglosses will take me about three years to consume :D..

        • http://www.yettezkiedoodle.com/ Yette

          Hehe, sorry nemen. Kase nasanay ako sa mga beauty bloggers na marami lip gloss e. Lol.

          • Leilani Gamboa

            hihi..maybe i havent found what really works for me yet na talagang magugustuhan ko since isang brand lang talga triny ko. you know naman I admire your makeup preferences. Nyx obviously works for you, i will try this out sis, thanks so much for sharing

  • Kim Bruno

    I love NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Cream, and i love the fact that they made something that is more of a gloss type than a matte type.

  • Ricalyn Garing Abrahan

    My friend love NYX lipgloss in peaches and cream She’s addicted to it and always repurchase and repurchase.. LOL. I ask her why, then sabi nya, Pink daw kasi tapos nagmumukha daw syang barbie doll, which is true. Maybe i’m going to try this, hopefully soon.

  • andrea estrada

    I want to try some lipgloss but Im quite hesitant because some was just super super gloss na para kong uminom ng mantika. Haha! But this hndi sya gnun kaglossy sa pics. Can I use it even during day time?

  • http://ideya-atbp.blogspot.com/ Winnie Aurelio

    I would go for the creme brulee too since most of my lippies are in neutrals or or shades of browns. Never tried these stuffs from Nyx before but might reconsider once I get to visit their e-commerce site. Not sure for formulations though and what they mean Do you think it would be safe for a 9yr old kid to use this… she is a gloss and balm lover and cant seem to get over my stuff whenver she sees a new gloss or a lipbalm

  • haziest hazel

    the peaches and cream shade looks so great on you. I was a bit disappointed with the creme brulee… Di pala xa pigmented, and it’s sheer. But I guess it would look great din if you will use it on top of your lipstick.

  • Marissa Colmenar Brioso

    Your lips are nice. They look really smooth and kissable! I Love lipgloss! Magandang itry ito, nagpaplan pa naman ako na bumili before christmas para all made up sa 25. Buti nakita ko ito, my daughter recommend your blog. And I love it. Thank you for this review, its really helpful sis. Hoping for more reviews in your blog. I’ll wait for it sis. Ang ganda ng blog mo.
    More powers and advance happy holidays.

    • Marissa Colmenar Brioso

      Nakalimutan ko itanong sis, do you prefer lipstick or lipgloss in your daily routine? Ang ganda kase talaga. Hindi tuyot, really nice. Do you exfoliate your lips?

  • phyaboo

    I personally love the creme brulee, thinking of getting myself one next time.

  • http://clairejundis.blogspot.com/ Mary Claire Jundis

    Wow, the creme brulee looks good! I might get one when I have my salary this month na!
