Hello gorgeous ladies,
The NYX Intense Butter lip glosses created quite a buzz in the makeup world when it launched. So, I thought, why not grab a few shades and see for myself what all the fuss is about! Trust me ladies, these babies deserve all the love and attention that they are receiving! Today, I am going to share my thoughts about the NYX Intense Butter Gloss in the shade Apple Crisp. Let’s get started!
Smother your lips with a silky gloss bursting with color! Our Intense Butter Gloss has the same mouth-watering texture and scent of the original formula with even more color payoff in 12 new delectable shades.
CAD 8 (approximately INR 412).
My Experience with NYX Apple Crisp Intense Butter Gloss:
Packaging: The NYX Intense Butter glosses come in a sleek and chic plastic tube packaging with a shiny gunmetal coloured cap containing 8 ml of product. The packaging is like their statement soft matte lip creams. The body of the tube is colour-coded to the lip gloss shade which makes my life simple! The applicator is a standard doe-foot applicator, but a little flat and flexible which makes applying the gloss comfortable. Since the tube is tiny and sleek, it can be easily slipped into the purse while travelling or for daily touch ups.
Color: The shade “Apple Crisp” is a very bright true red colour with slightly cool undertones. This shade is right up my alley and those who like bright red shades will love this one. If you have not entered the bandwagon of using bright red lipsticks, this gloss will break the monotony and is a great option to try out. The shade is the perfect red and will suit all skin tones.
Pigmentation: This baby is insanely pigmented for a lip gloss. If you are considering this gloss to be a shiny lipstick with medium to low pigmentation, forget it ladies!! This lipstick provides full colour pay-off in just one swipe. I tried to sheer it out in my hand swatches, but it still shows up very well pigmented.
Texture: The texture of this gloss is a hybrid of liquid lipstick and lip gloss, and is hydrating in nature. This gloss is super creamy and less gloss-like. It applies on the lips like butter, but still has the stickiness to it which makes it long lasting. It is very comfortable to wear and moisturizes the lips which makes wearing a lip balm before this gloss, an option. It does feel a bit tacky initially, but the stickiness wears out eventually throughout the day. It’s the best formulation of a lip gloss and imparts a gorgeous glossy shine, colour and hydration to the lips.
Longevity: This gloss is way more long lasting than a regular gloss. I believe the long wear time is due to the thick consistency and the initial tackiness. Even though the shine starts to fade away after 4 hours or so, the colour still remains on the lips, which is a fantastic feature of this gloss.
