Budget Beauty: NYX Butter Gloss


As much as I love experimenting with my lip color, I seem to stockpile shades of pink and nude. It doesn’t matter that I have an entire drawer of lipstick in these shades, it’s always the color I buy when trying a new line. Do you do this, too?


This became very clear when I was searching for a shade of orange, which is way underrepped in my makeup bag, but the color I’m feeling for spring. Before I got too spendy with this NARS pencil, I tried NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler to make sure I could even pull it off. And then I bought two more tubes (naturally in my go-to palette – I can’t help myself) because ohmygosh this is a great lip gloss AND it costs $5. It’s not the least bit goopy or sticky and wears comfortably. With more than 20 colors to choose from —- including some daring shades of purple and red, there are options to get you out of your comfort zone for the price of a latte.



I give these a major stamp of approval! And I also give myself permission to pick up this.

    Ooooooooo! That orange is perfect! I’ve heard how great these NYX glosses, but I wasn’t totally convinced till I saw this shade on you. What’s the sticky factor of these, Laurie? That is often a deal breaker for me! 🙂

    For an organic alternative I love Vapour Siren Beauty Lipstick in Tempest (or Pin Up for a lighter orange) Vapour Beauty Plumping Gloss in Tease, and Vapour Aura Multi Use Lip and cheek stain in Crave – use just one or layer all three. All available on our webstore – and we have samples as well. dana of balancebeautyandhealth.com

    You can DEFO rock the orange, Laurie! It looks kind of amazing with your baby blues! They are color wheel opposites so you may have discovered a look here that will have you looking smashing all spring and summer! I guarantee you so many people will comment on your eyes when you’re wearing this orange shade! I love a good NYX Butter Gloss. I think I have Bavarian Fudge Doughnut. I’m sure that’s the name. 😉 All I know is it’s pink and smells divine!
