Beauty | NYX Butter Glosses

I found the NYX counter in the Birstall Boots store on a complete whim! I'd gone in for a bit of a boring shop, to b fair - Shampoo, deodorant, tampons, that sort of shop (Zzzz!) and spotted the super sleek black display counter out of the corner of my eye & I darted over as if my life depended on it.

After an in depth browse of what was available, I plunged for a couple of Butter Glosses, in the shades Eclair which is a 90's pink and Ginger Snap, a deep rich brown.

The Butter Glosses, as the name suggests have a rich, luxury, velvet formula which apply with one quick swish of the fluffy applicator. The glosses have a very sheer consistency so it's recommended to wear these over a lipstick or lip liner unless you prefer a more subtle, transparent look. If the Butter Glosses are worn without a liner or lipstick the colour that's transferred onto the lips, doesn't look half as bright as that in the tube, it's a much more subtle look. I've worn the shades a couple of times on their own, but the majority of times I've layered them over a lip liner as I prefer the appearance of a bolder lip. Admittedly the Butter Glosses apply with a slight stickiness to them however this quickly disappears as the product dries leaving a beautiful glossy sheen. It's a look that makes a change from my usual matte lip look, but one I love & it'll be perfect for Spring/Summer. Something that sticks out to me however with these products however, is the scent! If you've never smelt these before, then I really strongly urge you to do so! The products have a gorgeously sweet strawberry infused candyfloss scent to them, which makes applying & wearing them that bit more enjoyable.

I currently only have two of the shades in the collection & I'll definitely be going back for more, as well as sampling more NYX products, because from what I've tried so far, I'm in love!

What NYX products should I be trying? Have you got any favourites?

Lots of love | Claire.x
