I’m sure most of you have heard of the wildly popular NYX Butter Glosses. Well, a few months ago they launched an “Intense Butter Gloss” line that has the same plush texture as the original with a more opaque color payoff. Since I am a sucker for bold lips and I’ve never met a NYX lip product I didn’t like, I knew I had to try a few of these.
They are available in 12 shades and retail for $6. I had been waiting for them to go on sale (usually BOGO 50% off), but like every NYX lip product at my local Ulta store, the ones I wanted were always out of stock. So I ended up having to order online.
If you’re not a fan of opaque bold colors, I wouldn’t bother getting these. I mean, you could lightly apply them to get more of a sheer look, but that is what the original Butter Glosses are for! The scent is the same as the original, just a light sweet smell but it doesn’t last long. The applicator is a flat double sided paddle shape that applies the color evenly and accurately. All of these glosses wore for about 5 hours on me and they left a slight stain behind when they were almost gone.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss:
Toasted Marshmallow is a deep mauve purple. I wanted to try something a little different, and while this isn’t a great summer color, it’s perfect for fall!
Sorbet is warm light salmon/pink shade. When I first saw this color, I thought it was going to be hideous on, but it is kind of growing on me. I feel slightly Kim Kardashian-ish with this on LOL!
Funnel Delight is a bold hot fuchsia pink. This is such a gorgeous shade and I knew I wanted it as soon as I saw it. You know me and my bright pinks. 😉
Napoleon is bright coral/pink. I love this color and it will look great against tanned summer skin!

I am so happy I picked these up and I have been using them all the time! I definitely recommend these if you love opaque, shiny lip colors. They have some pretty crazy colors in the collection too, like a bright orange and purple which I kind of want to try just for kicks…
Do you dig the intense look of these new Butter Glosses or will you stick to the original?
