Simply Lippy Challenge Day 231 | NYX Butter Gloss Lip Gloss in Shade BLG28, Pink Buttercream

I first discovered these Butter Gloss lip glosses from NYX a couple of months back and was really impressed by them. I’ve tried a few so far and when I spotted this pink coral shade a few weeks ago, I decided to buy it and it to my list.

I’m not usually a gloss, or sheer finish fan; I find them fine but they wouldn’t be my usual go-to. However, as glosses go, these babies are very easy to wear, and apart from a little stickiness the first time I wore one, I haven’t really noticed any stickiness since with other shades.

Today’s shade, Pink Buttercream, is quite neutral with a sheer finish, but it gives a lovely pink pop of colour to the lips. It is creamy with a vinyl-like finish that is thick but very blendable, and leaves your lips feeling lovely and soft.

I love shades like this for an ‘on-the-go’ kind of day where you just want something understated and low maintenance that you don’t have to worry about flaking or wearing badly. As it’s a gloss, you will have to reapply it, but as it wears off well, you won’t have to worry about it flaking or drying out your lips.

Pinks are funny shades to me, there’s a lot of pink tones that I really don’t like, but as this is more salmon than pink, it’s one that I do really like especially on a sunny day. 

What do you think of lip gloss? Do you love it or loathe it?! I’m definitely more of a lipstick girl but every once in a while, these are very nice to wear.
