6 Things you need to know about the $6 NYX Intense Butter Glosses

Being a beauty blogger, I often get tempted to buy new products based off reading other blogs. And I read a lot of them. If a recommendation comes from Karen (Makeup and Beauty Blog) I know, it’s going to be good. That’s how I got sucked into buying two cute tubes of NYX Intense Butter Glosses. They looked so good on her that I had to try them for myself. Lazy Hair (38 of 43)

Let me tell you all about them.

1. They come in 12 juicy colors and retail for only $6. (I purchased mine at Ulta during a B1G1/2 sale- score!). I picked two shades- a nude Tres Leches and a vibrant hot pink in Funnel Delight.

2. They have excellent pigmentation and even the nude shades cover your lips in just one swipe. They come in a small tube with a flat sponge applicator. The outside of the tube is the actual color of the gloss- very handy for people like me who carry 10 lip products in their bag and can never find the shade they are looking for.Lazy Hair (39 of 43)

3. They are very comfortable on the lips, glossy and smooth (hence they are called butters) and they don’t settle into the lip lines.  They are slightly sticky but not tacky.

4. Once you apply the gloss to your lips, you need to wait about a minute for the gloss to dry. Once it does, it’s not going anywhere for even 4 hours and it wears off rather evenly. If you’re sipping on your favorite beverage while wearing the NYX Intense Butter Gloss, it will transfer a little bit onto the glass though.

5. They have quite a distinct sweet scent to them which reminds me of a cupcake frosting. Once you apply the gloss to your lips, the scent is gone though.

6. They are highly addictive. If you buy just one shade, you will definitely want another one. And another one. They are that good! And they can easily compete with high end glosses like Chanel! For $6 and with the excellent pigmentation and a long lasing formula they absolutely deserve a spot in every woman’s makeup bag.

To finish off, check them out in action- aka on my lips. While Tres Leches is a lovely everyday nude shade, I have to say Funnel Delight absolutely stole my heart. It’s a perfect hot pink shade, it’s very vibrant and compliments a lot of looks.

What do you think of the NYX Intense Butter Glosses? Have you tried any of them? Do you like any other NYX lip products? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

    Both colors look beautiful on you!
    I’ve been meaning to try these since I’ve heard so many good things about them, but I don’t find them from my local drugstores. Maybe next time when I’m in NJ, I will have to go to an Ulta store.

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      Hey Lena, thanks a lot! I found it to be a problem with NYX, it’s really hard to find some shades, even at Ulta. Some Targets also carry NYX, maybe you will have more luck there.

  2. Kishia says:

    Totally have to resist the urge to buy these- said no woman ever! They’re both beautiful on you. And the price tag for this kind of quality is oh so tempting! I never bit the bullet on the Too Faced melteds bc of the price tag & I was indecisive. Definitely sold on these. Maybe a good alternative, although I know these aren’t matte. Oh! I ended up going to Sephora without my mom. She’s a nurse & works crazy hours so she was too tired to accompany me. I only picked up the makeup pouch, though, since I did some damage a week before the sale. The pouch is super cute. Can totally see myself using it as a clutch for a fun night out. You look great in the pics, btw!

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      The glosses are definitely worth picking, in every color, lol. And they smell so good!

      too bad your mommy couldn’t make it to Sephora with you! You need to send me the link to the makeup pouch. I like the ones with the makeup sayings. Is it one of those? Believe it or not, I didn’t get anything from the Sephora sale! I am proud of myself although the temptation was big!

  3. Sandy Pincombe says:

    Lip glosses never seem to look good on me…maybe I am going to light? I am a “mature woman with silver hair”. May try Funnel Delight?!?

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      Hi Sandy! I think lip glosses can be worn by anyone, no matter what age! If you’re picking a shade too close to your natural skintone or lip color, it might make you look ghostly and washed out. I’d definitely try something brighter. I think Tres Leches is a pretty universal shade that would look good on almost anyone! Let me know if you have any other questions!

  4. Dee says:

    Wow beautiful! I’m really digging the black backgrounds for your pics Agata! How do you do that ? The pink one btw reminds me of nyx adis Ababa..love it! Xox

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      My pleasure! Have you tried any of these? If not, you have to! A great budget buy! Orangesickle is really pretty although I think it would look terrible on me. But recently I have been really craving some orange fiery shades!

      • Zovesta says:

        Afraid not! =[ But I’ll definitely have to pick some up next time I’m in town, they look absolutely enthralling. And I feel you, I don’t know what it is with my addiction with oranges. Tres Leches and Funnel Delight looks gorgeous on you!

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      Hey Ingrid, thanks for stopping by and for your kind comment! Which shades of the regular Butter Glosses do you like the best?

  5. Shireen L. Platt says:

    I am a huge fan of NYX Butter Gloss so I’ll definitely love these! I love both shades on you, Agata and will keep in mind to pick up a couple of these once my two months self imposed makeup ban is lifted. I honestly couldn’t keep up with the amount of products I have and just needed the ban. LOL!

  6. Marielle says:

    I’m so picky about lip glosses but I absolutely love these! I think they have such a nice scent as well. Funnel delight looks so gorgeous on you! I tend to stick to the more neutral shades in their glosses but may have to try that one xx

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      Hi Marielle, thank you for your kind comment! If you like neutral shades Tres Leches should be perfect for you. What other shades of these do you have?

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      I haven’t tried the original Butter Glosses but I can only imagine they are as good as the intense ones. What shades do you usually wear on your lips Gemma?

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      These are so pigmented that could pass on as liquid lipsticks! They are really good and for $6 I can get a lot of them. Which shade do you have Tracy?

  7. Beti says:

    I haven’t tried the intense version but I’m sure I’ll love them cause I really like their butter glosses. NYX is such a nice affordable brand, I haven’t tried anything from them that I didn’t like.

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      Yes, both shades are really nice and there are some red shades too for you my red lip lover! Definitely give them a try.

      On my nails I am wearing Essie Blossom Dandy from the Spring 2015 Flowerista collection. It is really pretty! Minty with a tiny bit of blue.

  8. Jaa says:

    Dang, I shouldn’t have given my friend a sample tube!!! >.< Funnel Delight looks absolutely delightful on you, Agata! It spices up your look so perfectly. I thought they didn't wear long but good to know the wear time is comparable to most lipstick. 🙂

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      Fortunately, these are really affordable! Do you have NYX in Thailand? And they are definitely long lasting, probably comparable to liquid lipsticks. And I think Funnel Delight would look gorgeous on you as well!

  9. Sunny says:

    OOO I love both on you! You managed to pick two shades that I’d love to wear! NYX is actually not as easily available here as you think it should be, but I keep hearing great things about these so I really have to look into them!

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      I wish all great brands were available worldwide! I know NYX cosmetics are available at Douglas perfumerias in Europe (or at least Poland) so hopefully they will be easier to obtain for you soon!

      And Funnel Delight is totally your shade!

  10. NatasjaEPB says:

    Euhm, I think I have one of them… after reading your post I wonder if I’ll feel the same way 😀 I should review it soon!!!! *so many lip products* It’s not like I can get my hands on more of them if I end up being addicted to them too lol. Phew.

    • NatasjaEPB says:

      Oh, and btw, both shades look ah-mazing on you! I love them for very different reasons and if I had to choose… Tres Leches would be my fave. Perfect on your skin tone.

  11. kristen @ glambunctious says:

    Ahh! These are both gorgeous on you, but my tame lipstick loving heart really adores Tres Leches! These sound great, but I’m trying to resist buying lip gloss since I have a shameful amount of them and only wear about 4 of them regularly! *must resist!* I had one of the regular Butter Glosses from NYX several years back and loved it!

    • Agata says:

      But these are only $6, lol!

      So which 4 glosses do you wear regularly? What am I missing in my stash? I am more of a lipstick girl myself too but I like sheerer sparkling glosses for layering over my lipsticks. And these NYX Butter Intense Glosses feel more like lipsticks than glosses to me because the pigmentation is amazing and they last a long time on my lips.
