NYX Butter Gloss Strawberry Parfait
Today I am here with a lip gloss, as much as I love lip products and lipsticks in general I am not really a gloss person, for some reason I do not like their feel and sticky texture at all. But these new butter glosses from NYX have taken the beauty world by storm ever since they have been launched. I have seen everyone raving about them so was curious to try it and hence got it in the shade Strawberry Parfait.
About NYX Butter Gloss Strawberry Parfait:
Buttery soft and silky smooth, our scrumptious new Butter Lip Gloss tastes as sweet as a sugar cookieâ€”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.
Packaging: The gloss comes in opaque color coded packaging which looks really cute and makes it easier to select if you have more than one of these glosses this one is fuchsia pink along with a doe foot applicator.
My Take on NYX Butter Gloss Strawberry Parfait:
The color looks like a bright fushcia pink color in the tube, but upon swatching it is a really wearable light fuchsia pink color with slight purple undertones, the color will be amazing for lighter skin tones. I doubt if it will show up well on darker skin tones. I am not really a fan of this shade because of the way it shows up on my pigmented lips, as seeing the outer packaging I had expected a more brighter and pigmented color! The color is free of any shimmers and adds nice shine and glossy look to lips giving a plump effect. It has a night sweet smell to it which fades quickly.
As the name suggests the texture is just the same buttery smooth and creamy and quite moisturizing as well. I would not say it is completely non-sticky as NYX claims, it does feel slightly sticky and thick upon application other than that it feels quite comfortable on lips. It keeps my lips soft and moisturized during and after the application making it perfect for everyday wear.
The pigmentation is not that great in my opinion, it is quite sheer for me and barely shows up on my pigmented lips, I tried layering it as in the swatch but then it does not feel that good on lips. I generally pair it with a lip liner or a lipstick. If you have non-pigmented lips then it will show up nicely. I am really curious to check out the darker colors in the range now. It stays put for around 3 hours alone and longer with a base. After trying the butter gloss I am looking forward to getting the butter lipsticks next especially after seeing Himaniâ€™s lovely swatches I am really excited to get my hands on them 🙂
What I like about NYX Butter Gloss Strawberry Parfait:
- Color coded packaging
- Wearable fuchsia pink color
- Buttery smooth texture
- It is really moisturizing
- Staying power is decent
- The price is really amazing
What I donâ€™t like about NYX Butter Gloss Strawberry Parfait:
- It does feel slightly sticky
- The color is quite sheer and does not show up well on pigmented lips
- Texture is slightly on the thicker side
- Not yet available in India
Overall Verdict: If you enjoy wearing lip glosses then you absolutely have to check these out. I would recommend this color to light to medium skin tones, for darker skin tones and for those with pigmented lips I think the darker shades would be much better, I am definitely trying a darker shade from the range, all in all you will not regret them!
