Review & Swatchfest: NYX Butter Glosses in Éclair, Merengue, Peach Cobbler, Apple Strudel, and Cherry Pie


NYX Butter Glosses in Éclair, Merengue, Peach Cobbler, Apple Strudel, and Cherry Pie
Hot on the lip butter trend, NYX Butter Glosses are a hybrid between a lip gloss and medium coverage cream lip color. Said to provide medium coverage without stickiness, there are 12 shades available and I have 5 to share with you today!

Éclair is a light, dusty mauve, Merengue is a medium berry-tones mauve, Peach Cobbler is a bright peach that almost looks like an orange-red, Apple Strudel is a medium pastel peach, and Cherry Pie is a blue-based red. All are cream textures with a gloss finish - completely without shimmer or sparkle - which is very refreshing. Cream-finish products tend to look a little more polished, but it's hard to find affordable glosses that aren't completely sparkle laden. As promised, each of these provide medium coverage - they give a burst of color to the lips without completely covering natural lip color or texture. Worn alone, they have a slight tendency to appear uneven, but look beautiful (and even) when worn over lipstick or liner.

I noticed these staying in place for around 2+ hours - typical of gloss-type products. The texture provided nice slip without being sticky in the least. Unlike some glosses, when the NYX Butter Glosses wore off, I noticed my lips feeling smooth rather than dry or flaky.

The finish and price is what makes these most appealing and worth checking out. As I mentioned before, it's hard to find semi-opaque glosses that aren't shimmer laden in the drugstore and these manage to balance gloss and color nicely for only $4.99 a piece. You can find these at ULTA Beauty or the NYX Cosmetics website!
