NYX is no doubt becoming my favourite drugstore beauty brand, especially for their lipsticks. Recently when I took a browse at their stand in Boots, I decided to switch up my lip game a bit. As much as I love my mattes, I thought it was about time I went for a bit of a gloss.
The first of the Intense Butter Gloss range I picked up was a bright orangey red shade in ‘Orangesicle’, the perfect fun shade for summer! The NYX Intense Butter Gloss‘s are “Buttery soft and silky smooth. Each glossy color delivers sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky, leaving your lips soft, supple and kissable.” In terms of these claims, I can say that it does have great pigmentation and glides on the lips with ease. I agree it’s not sticky but kissable? I’m not sure. Is it just my boyfriend who refuses to kiss me whatever lipstick I have on, even if it’s nude?! Haha.
A mirror is needed to apply but there’s no need for a liner beforehand. The lasting power was actually brilliant – I wore this lipstick from 11 am to 4 pm a few weekends ago and was eating and drinking throughout the day. It didn’t really budge, just needed a top up once to get the gloss/shine back!
This colour is definitely a bit more out there for me, but I absolutely adore it, and can’t wait to try some more of the butter gloss range!
