NYX Butter Gloss in ‘Peaches & Cream’, ‘Creme Brulee’ & ‘Apple Strudel’ – Review, Photos & Swatches
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
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.

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!
Really worth the purchase and will definitely repurchase (a different shade of course).

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?
