My Experience with NYX Angel Food Cake Intense Butter Gloss:
I have heard a lot about these lip glosses and it was about time that I bought one or in this case I bought two shades to get started.
Packaging: The gloss comes in a skinny and long tube, like a normal diameter test tube. The packaging is color-coded and has a doe foot applicator attached to it. I like the packaging and it is easy to carry around. Also, the applicator picks up the right amount of the product in one go and covers the lips well.
Texture: It is very creamy and smooth to apply but not too thick or tacky. It has a pretty creamy shine and is not too overpowering. So, it would not steal focus off other features.
Color: This one is a soft pink shade which appears more like a baby pink with cool undertones. But, it still appears pretty on my face. Also, it does not have a frosty finish.
Pigmentation: These lip glosses don’t have good pigmentation nor is it the part of their job description, so I won’t complain much. I wear a dark color lip liner underneath and then use this shade to get even toned and glossy lips.
Shimmer and shine: It has a creamy shine which is not what I really like in most cases. But, I love the finish of these products and they do not contain any tacky glitter particles.
Fragrance: The product has a strong and artificial food fragrance which is a bit too strong for my liking. The smell is a little overpowering on the first go but it dies down eventually.
Wear time: It gives a decent wear time like most lip gloss which is 2 to 3 hours and then reapplication is required. But, I don’t mind that since that is the case with most of the lip glosses.
Conclusion: I am really happy that I took a leap of faith and purchased these lip beauties. I already have 2 shades and can’t wait to buy other shades as well.
