current obsession: NYX intense butter gloss

Even though NYX products have been in Canada for over a year now (wow...time really flies), it still makes me giddy to reach for their makeup day after day. I suppose the novelty has not worn off just yet. From face palettes to eyeshadows and lip products, NYX continues to impress. Especially when it comes to their line of Intense Butter Gloss lip glosses. Generally speaking, I am not a huge fan of lip glosses. Most of them - even high end versions - are sticky and uncomfortable to wear. This is not the case with the Intense Butter Glosses.

Not only are they comfortable to wear, smooth rather than sticky, and easy to apply....the shades pack a serious punch. That is my other gripe about the majority of lip glosses on the market. Most of them have super sheer colour payoff, if any. These glosses on the other hand have tons of pigmentation. They can be worn over a lipstick shade for a super bold look but add just as much colour to the lips when worn alone. In addition to the Intense Butter Glosses, I also have a couple of the normal Butter Glosses in my makeup collection. These are also super smooth, comfortable, and have an impressive amount of pigmentation.

Below are some swatches of the current favourites in my collection. The three on the left are from the Intense Butter Gloss line while the last two are from the traditional Butter Gloss collection.

Swatches (Left to Right) 
Banana Royale, Orangesicle, Funnel Delight, Strawberry Parfait, and Peaches and Cream. 

Though there are other NYX lip products in my makeup collection, these are the shades that I have been loving lately. They are so perfect for the summertime! I love the bold peaches, corals, and pinks. With lots of pigmentation and comfort on the lips....these are the perfect glosses for any and all summer activities. Lately, I've been throwing a shade in my purse or applying one before I go anywhere. Whether I'm going grocery shopping, hanging out with a friend, or taking a walk outside. These glosses are a must-have.  

Here is a picture of a recent makeup look I created, using Orangesicle (my personal favourite) to add a pop of colour. It was worn alone, so this should give you an idea of how pigmented these glosses really are....

NYX has a ton of amazing products to choose from. Lately, these Butter Glosses have become my go-to makeup item. Yes, they are without a doubt my current beauty obsession.

Have you tried these glosses? What did you think of them?
