All the Butter Gloss shades are named after desserts, and with a beauty bargain like this, you may find yourself going back for seconds! This lightly fragranced gloss has a moisturizing, non-sticky texture and comes in a lovely array of bright, but sheer, colors, as well as some neutrals.
The wand applicator is easy to use, and, as with any lip gloss, it can be applied alone, with a lipliner, or over your favorite lipstick. This lip gloss's only potential drawback is that it contains fragrance.
- Moisturizing, non-sticky texture.
- Easy-to-use applicator.
- Sheer shades are available in brights and neutrals.
- Pairs well with lipstick.
- Contains fragrance, when lots of lip glosses are fragrance-free, which is ultimately better for lips.
This small Los Angelesbased makeup line was founded in 1999 by a woman named Toni Ko. The company's Web site is vague about Ko's background, merely stating that she developed an interest in cosmetics as a teenager and wanted to create her own line of cosmetics. Ko's goal was to produce high-quality products at affordable prices, and that's the draw of NYX (pronounced "nicks") Cosmetics. We are pleased to report that, for the most part, Ko succeeded in her childhood dream.
It is important to note that this line offers a full selection of makeup products, from foundations to lip gloss. However, the only place to access everything NYX Cosmetics has to offer is their Web site. The Ulta chain is the largest distributor of NYX Cosmetics products in the United States, and the line can also be found at Target and Nordstrom Rack, but they carry a smaller selection of NYX products.The good news is that most of the few NYX products Ulta stocks are impressive, especially the powder eyeshadows, which compete evenly with eyeshadows that cost a lot more.
NYX Cosmetics website is www.nyxcosmetics.com.
