NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair and Apple Strudel Swatches and Review

Does anything scream "spring!" more than new, brightly colored lip gloss??

NYX Butter Gloss ($5!) has been taking the Beauty Blogosphere by storm this spring. There are 12 shades in the Butter Gloss line total. NYX describes them as:
"• What it is: It’s buttery lip gloss with a sweet scent that provides sheer to medium coverage on your lips without that sticky feeling.

What it does: Provides nourishment with a flush of color on your lips giving you the perfect pout.

Why we love it: Adore that it can be worn alone or over your favorite lipstick! It’s delicious and gorgeous at the same time."
My Ulta was pretty wiped out when I went to try them out, but I ended up with Eclair and Apple Strudel. Eclair was on my "want" list, and Apple Strudel I was undecided about. So, do they live up to the hype? Let's have a look!

Eclair is a lavender-pink. NYX describes it as pink but I think the swatch on my hand and on my lips it comes off with a hint of purple, which I really love, because it is super wearable.

Apple Strudel is a peach-coral. NYX describes it as peach. It gives me lips a good little punch of color and great shine.

The Butter Gloss has a spatula applicator, my personal favorite. The tube is designed really well to keep too much product from coming out at once. You can literally hear the little "pop" suction noise of the applicator leaving the bottle neck.

The Butter Glosses smell delicious, like some kind of baked good. They feel moisturizing on the lips and give great shine without being a heavy, gloopy gloss. When they fade, after about 2 hours, they leave my lips in great condition. I have pretty chapped lips and have never had these leave pigment on my flakes like many other lip products have.

Overall, I am really glad I picked these up! They provide a hint of color, a lot of shine, and they make my lips look like they are in better condition than they really are. I love the smell, the price ($4.99 at Ulta) can't be beat and I really enjoy wearing them. I definitely recommend these!
