I feel like lots of beauty blogs love the brand NYX. It’s a very affordable brand that can be found at Ulta. I decided to give their butter glosses a chance since I kept hearing about how wonderful they are when it comes to both pigment and moisturizing abilities.
I picked up two shades from Ulta for $5 a piece, which is very cheap for a lip gloss. I tried them both and just felt incredibly underwhelmed. I kept hearing that they smelled amazing, but I thought they just smelled okay. The pigments were nice but they didn’t last very long. They didn’t seem more moisturizing than other glosses, and my lips weren’t noticeably softer after using this product.
I tried them off and on for about two weeks and just continued feeling overwhelmed. For $5, the product was fine, but they very much felt like they were only worth the $5 I paid. I’ve since tried a few more NYX products since so many beauty bloggers just love them, but I felt the same way about them all. In my opinion, this is a cheap brand that feels cheap. You’re getting what you’re paying for, and I don’t think I’ll be purchasing anything from this brand again. I’ve already given away all of the products I bought and I don’t miss them one bit.
