New From NYX, and It’s Intense! New $6 Intense Butter Gloss

NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Funnel Delight

Wearing NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Funnel Delight ($6, one of 12 shades)

Yesterday I wore one of NYX’s new $6 Intense Butter Glosses while eating a piece of intensely buttered brown bread at The Cheesecake Factory.

(You know their brown bread, right? Man, I LOVE that stuff.)


I usually go easy on the butter because, you know, I figure I’ll just have to run it off eventually, but they brought out two hot loaves, and I thought, “Gee…I’m eating intensely buttered bread while wearing Intense Butter Gloss.”

So I ate a lot. 🙂

Color me weird, but things like that bring me great joy. It’s all about the little things, you know? You gotta get your kicks where you can.

Anywho, these really do feel like butter on my lips — like I spread a thick, creamy layer of fresh churned butter (made by happy cows, of course) on my kisser.

I keep thinking that I’m going to have to do some cardio if I keep wearing them, badum tish!

They’re a brand new line, and NYX rolled out 12 intensely pigmented shades for spring.

So far I’ve tried three of the shades — a red called Apple Crisp, a hot pink called Funnel Delight and a nude called Tres Leches — and I think the red one and the hot pink are hella impressive. Vivid (so intense that your natural lip color will be buried under an avalanche of pigment), opaque, full-coverage, and they apply smoothly, too.

But for me, the nude was the real test, because I have naturally pigmented lips, and a lot of the time I have to jump through hoops to get nude shades to show up, but not this time. No concealer on my lips, no lip liner beforehand — nothing. Just my lips and the gloss. That’s it.

These also last a pretty long while — from 4-5 hours if I’m just hanging out at the mall playing hooky and buying shoes, but throw a meal into the mix and things change. In other words, if you’ll be eating heaps of buttered brown bread at The Cheesecake Factory while wearing these, you’ll have to reapply after the meal.


Additional bullet points for the official makeup record:

  • Scent/flavor: They smell and taste faintly of butter cream frosting (yum). I don’t think it’s obnoxious at all.
  • Applicator: Hell, yes to the flocked doe-foot, which really helps get the gloss all the way to the edges and corners of the lips.
  • Texture: They have a creamy, non-sticky, moderately thick formula.

    All 3 look great on you — lovely portraits.

    I never figured out how to wear a pigmented gloss. Doesn’t it just smear and drip everywhere? Any tips?

    • Zovesta says:

      I’ve never had a gloss drip on me! They tend to stick to your lips pretty well. And I’m not a real bad lip rubber, but I feel like the smearing isn’t too bad, it’s mostly the tackiness that gets on my nerves. But in all they keep your lips hydrated and gorgeous, so I’d pick up one and give it a try.

  3. Liz Ann says:

    These are lovely. I love that they are inexpensive and the color really looks like it pays off.

  4. Kirsten says:

    Ha, BOGO was my first thought too! So they didn’t smear outside your lips? That’s my biggest problem with most glosses. (Cailyn, I’m looking at you!)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kirsten,

      Surprisingly no! I’m a lip rubber, too, and these didn’t smear.

      Have you ever tried using a clear lip liner? Those totally help with keeping the gloss from migrating.

      • Kirsten says:

        I haven’t! I’ve been looking more at matte lip stains like LA Splash, Fyrinnae and the evil LC. I haven’t actually bought any yet though. I have a lot of lip products I don’t use already.

  5. Beti says:

    Ohh Tres Leches looks gorgeous on you, it’s such a nice pinky nude and I probably need it :))

  6. Erin says:

    DAMN! Those look great. I feel they may be my first NYX products.

  8. Wow, a nude that is opaque on pigmented lips? I will have to check that out. The whole concealer thing is just way to drying.

  12. Elena says:

    This post made me hunt them down at my local Ulta. I love nude glosses and really wanted trees leches…my local Ulta was cleaned out of almost all the shades!

    So I picked up a regular butter gloss in angel food cake.

    Tres Leches shall be mine – a perfect nude without being too pinky and brown.

    I’ve been looking for these everywhere and they are always sold out or picked over. I was on the fence about tres leche but since it looks great on you I might give it a go. I think I’ll just order online

  15. Tres leches looks best on you.. !! The butter lip glosses.. umm that sounds so delicious 😉

    I am definitely adding these to my Ulta wishlist! My lips are still recovering from an intensely dry winter, so I really need these butter glosses in my life!

  19. Trude says:

    Oh wow that’s some crazy pigmentation! I love the regular Butter glosses already, I’ll have to check these out. I have the same problem with nude glosses, only my pigmentation isn’t even; I have kind of a natural lip liner going on.
