NYX has recently landed in New Zealand (SO EXCITING!) and I snatched up a few items as soon as I could. I visited the stand at the brand-spanking-new Farmers on Queen Street shortly after it opened, and pretty much had to fight through a crowd of women to get these 4. Ok, not really fight but there were lots of other beauty addicts checking out the NYX stand, and every time I go back to check it out, it’s been well shopped (meaning it’s fucking empty).
I was clearly in a mood for nudes/browns when I got these – I’m definitely happy with my picks, though. I have a bunch of the other Soft Matte Lip Creams and a couple lipsticks, so I thought that I’d try something new with the Butter Glosses. The products I grabbed were: NYX Matte Lipstick in Butter, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi, and two NYX Butter Glosses in Praline and Ginger Snap.
All of these have really lovely, sweet cake/gourmand scents except for the Matte Lipstick. It’s just unscented.
Butter is quite pigmented and glides on quite easily. It’s the lightest cool nude in my collection, and can sometimes be too light on me, and I like using the Butter Glosses to darken it a bit. Abu Dhabi isn’t as patchy on the lips as it is here, and I was surprised by how much I liked it – I don’t ever pick light, warm nudes like this one.
The glosses are really nice and pigmented enough to wear over anything, however I had forgotten how sticky and annoying they could be when you have long hair. I still adore them though, and will probably pick up a few more colors soon.
Did you pick up any NYX products after the launch?
