Glosses have been back in trend since quite a bit now but my heart has been with matte lipsticks. I never really liked glosses since they are sticky and just not my thing. But with the makeup world expanding so quickly, there have been some amazing launches as well but again I never really liked anything. But then NYX launched its Intense Butter Gloss and I was very intrigued to try it. So continue reading to know how this gloss performed.
NYX Intense Butter Lip Gloss Review – Spice Cake
Disclosure: May contain affiliate link
Product Name: NYX Intense Butter Lip Gloss in the shade Spice Cake
Price & Quantity: $5 for 8ml. You can purchase here at Ulta.
Shelf Life: 12 months
Availability: It is available online and offline. Buy online here at Ulta.
Ingredients: In the image below.
Packaging & Appearance: It comes in a classic lip gloss tube with a flexible flat spatula applicator which is convenient to apply gloss. Also has a transparent tube through which you can see the color of the gloss. It is travel friendly and easy to use.
Variants: It also comes in a variant called ‘NYX Butter Gloss’ which isn’t as intense in colour as this gloss is.
Texture: The texture of the gloss is thick and creamy but it spreads easily.
Shade: I have the shade ‘Spice Cake’ which is a dark pink colour.
Staying Power: It stays for about 6-7 hours and then starts to budge or fade a little.
Pigmentation: It is very pigmented unlike all the glosses I have ever used. It is equally pigmented as a lipstick is. I’d rather say even more than a lipstick as you just need a single coat of this gloss.
Finish: The finish of the gloss is very lustrous and shiny. It makes my lips look very plump.
Smell: It smells like a vanilla cake batter to me which is always good for a foodie like me. But anyways, it has a very yummy fragrance.
Swatch: In the mage below.
My Experience: I had never been a fan of glosses. Even when I used to apply any, my face used to look very dull for some reason. But since NYX came out with their intense butter gloss, I was very intrigued to try this out.
And I was blown away to see it’s pigmentation. And when I applied it on my lips, I didn’t require more than one coat of it.
It isn’t sticky like most of the glosses but it is more creamy. It also gives an amazing finish to the lips. My lips look like they have undergone a lip job because this gloss gives it a lot of shine and plumpness.
The staying power is pretty amazing as well and not to forget how yummy it smells. The applicator of the gloss is also nice and is flexible so there is no hassle in applying the gloss.

Overall Summary: It is one of the best glosses I have ever come across. I had never been a gloss lover before and I still am not but I am definitely a fan of NYX’s Intense Butter Gloss because it literally stole my heart with it’s amazing formula and finish.
