Review & Swatches: NYX Butter Gloss

Hey guys,

So I recently instagrammed and blogged a Ulta Haul where I picked up a bunch of goodies including some NYX products. Well today I thought I’d review and swatch the NYX Butter Glosses in Apple Strudle, Peaches and Cream, Meringue, and Eclair.

All I can say is these bad boys are AMAZING!! They are basically all I need in an everyday easy to wear lip product and this is why…

They all glide on smooth as butter and feel silky smooth on your lips. The consistency is amazing, its like a creamy smooth lip balm with amazing pigmentation and hydration to match. Its not gloopy or thick, its just the right amount of smooth buttery texture. Plus they smell like vanilla so they are just super yummy to have on 😀 The finish is amazing as well. Super shiny without any glitter flakes or chunks.

Here’s a closer look at these amazing lip products 😀

THE VERDICT:

10/10 for these amazing beauties 😀 I just cant say anything bad about them. They all smell great, look great, feel great and perform like magic. They aren’t totally opaque full on liquid pigment but they are awesome glosses non the less. They can be sheered down for a light wash of color or built up with 2 coats for a pretty powerful pout 😀 They last for a good while too and the price is amazing at just $5 a pop 😀 I would so recommend this this product.  I’m definitely gonna go back for more!!!

Have any of you tried the Butter Glosses? Whats your favorite shade?

Makeup Trade with Lola’s Charms

Hi Lovelies,

I have a really fun and cool post for you guys. I did a makeup trade with my girl Cristina aka Lola’s Charms. We set a budget and decided to get each other some makeup. Christina lives in the US so she hooked me up with a  bunch of stuff you cant get over here in Denmark and I sent her stuff you cant really get out in the US. Hopefully she gets my package soon 😀  Anyways enough blabbering, here’s all the really cool stuff she got me…

She definitely hooked it up big time!!! And I absolutely love everything!!! Here’s a closer look at all my new goodies…

Makeup_Trade_LolasCharms_lipstickLook at all those amazing lip products…Christina sent me two Revlon Lip Butters in Sweet Tarte and Tutti Fruitti, Revlon Color Stay Ultimate Suede in 020 Front Row, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Blam Stain in Sweetheart/Valentine and Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color in Click My Hyper Pink (love that name!!!!). She chose the perfect shades for me 😀

Makeup_Trade_LolasCharms_milaniIve always wanted to try some of the products from Milani so she hooked me up with this beautiful baked eye shadow palette in 05 Glamourous Gems. Perfect for a brown eyed red head like me 😀

Makeup_Trade_LolasCharms_nailpolishMakeup_Trade_LolasCharms_essieAnd of course she knows how obsessed I am with nail polish and nail art so she included some of the Wet n Wild polishes in Hollywood Walk Of Fame and Glamourous both from the Fergie Collection, OPI Which is Witch from the Oz Collection and these awesomely cool nail patches by Essie in Embrace the Lace and Sneek-e. I was so in love with these patches, when I opened my goodie box I had to try them right away so I gave myself a funky mani using Embrace The Lace.

Makeup_Trade_LolasCharms_EssieManiThese are probably the best nail patches Ive ever tried. It turned out soooooo cute…well minus the bloody cuticle, I may have went a little crazy with the cuticle cutters!!!! I will have a more in depth review of these bad boys once Ive fully tested them out. But so far so good 😀

Thanks again Cristina for spoiling me rotten with all these American goodies. If you haven’t checked out Cristina’s blog you have to, shes amazing and has really great posts. You can check her out and follow her here at lolascharms.com

Now that spring is here and Uni’s done for the semester Ive got plenty of holiday plans and trips. I’m off on Wednesday and slowly preparing the packing phase. I will have a post for you guys on what makeup I take with me on holiday and how I pack it. I will be in Dubai for a week to see my sister so I should hopefully have a bunch of new goodies to share with you all when I return.
