NYX Butter Glosses - Tiramisu, Cherry Cheesecake & Peach Cobbler review, photos, swatches

I know I know I'm on a spending ban, but I had a momentary lapse in self control and it's all Orla's fault.  She blogged about NYX's blush in Taupe and I just lost the run of myself, went onto the NYX UK website and started adding things into my basket.  When I saw they'd the new Butter Glosses, in went three along with something else I'll show you soon, and it was only when the order arrived last week that I realised I never actually ordered the blush.... I am crap at life and must have talked myself out of it or had a momentary seizure when I laid eyes on the Butter Glosses....

But I don't have to worry about not getting my paws on the blush because NYX will be launching nationwide here in Ireland very soon!  This is good and bad.  Good because I want to try so many things and will be able to now.  Bad because I want to try so many things and will be able to now.

But let me talk to you about the Butter Glosses.  I limited myself to these three shades, Tiramisu, Cherry Cheesecake and Peach Cobbler.

L-R: Tiramisu, Cherry Cheesecake, Peach Cobbler
L-R: Tiramisu, Cherry Cheesecake, Peach Cobbler
Each of these shades feel so moisturising and nourishing on the lips it's insane.  I think the clue is in the name!  They sink into my lips and no matter how much of a dry lip day I'm having, they always feel better after having the Butter Glosses on.  They smell like caramel, aren't sticky but there's a slight tackiness to them which makes them stay on the lips for a good three hours or so.  I'm in love folks and now want more....

NYX Butter Gloss - Tiramisu
Tiramisu is a lovely nudey dusky pinky shade that is one of the most fabulous nudes I've over owned.  I haven't stopped wearing it since last week and will be absolutely poifect with a smokey eye, or on a day where I want to look fresh faced.  I'll definitely repurchase this shade when I'm done with it and it's one that I believe I will actually finish!

NYX Butter Gloss - Cherry Cheesecake
Cherry Cheesecake is orange with a capital O.  So Orange.  If Fanta was a lip product it'd be this.  And surprisingly, I like it!  I think I'll have to wait until summer to wear it but with a tan, I'll be able to rock it.  It looked peachier in the swatches I saw online, but if you're into having lips the colour of the orange on an Irish flag, look no further.

NYX Butter Gloss - Peach Cobbler
Now, Peach Cobbler is not peach at all at all, but is rather a coral pinky shade that I am obsessed with.  I'm wearing it right now as I'm sitting in my pyjamas under a blanket on the couch.  This is going to be perfection for summer and because I love it so much, I'll be wearing it during the spring whenever that decides to arrive.  

These guys worked out at €6 each from the NYX website and hopefully when the brand launches here, they'll keep the price nice as I need more of these guys.  A quick note is if you can't wait for the Irish launch and need these now, then Parcel Motel it because the shipping cost is mad.  

These are one of my favourite lip products for 2014 already and I can't see them being out of rotation over the coming months!


  1. Love the peach cobbler shade, very pretty! NYX have something weird going on with their product names. There's a lipgloss called Beige and it's actually quite a nice pink colour :) Beige makes me think of old ladies stockings :P

    1. That's right! I forgot about the weirdly named Beige ;)

  2. I have one of these in strawberry parfait and it makes my lips feel amazing

  3. These are verrr pretty! Really love the ‘fanta’ shade. Now I want a bottle of fanta. Damn.

  4. oooh, I might found my orange lip color for this spring/summer season! Orange is THE new bright lip color this year (like the bright fuschia last year). Like with any lip color you can make it fit your skintone, from bright orange to an orange with a little more red depth to it. Personally I could not wear the bright fuschia full on saturated on my lips, and I probably can not wear the bright orange either this way. But as a sheer gloss? Yes please! :D Personally, the Tiramisu is my perfect match and will probably be my everyday gloss, but I will purchase the cherry cheescake as well for all of those hot summer nights out and about when I will be wearing white, flowy dresses, my sunkissed hair and my sunenhanced freckles :) Can't wait!!
