I’ve been meaning to tell you about my love affair with this product for MONTHS. When I run out of people to tell IRL, this is usually the tipping point where a product love becomes a blog post. My flatmate is now also a convert and my mother is perusing the NYX counters like a mad woman with a secret tip off. This brilliant product from NYX has really changed the way I look at “affordable” beauty products…
Like any true beauty obsessive, when I find something fantastic and highly affordable… I buy big. I have multiple lip butters in multiple locations… in my bags, pockets, scattered across my dressing table, back-ups stashed away in my makeup storage drawers. It’s ridiculous, but I’m not even sorry. I get the same sense of satisfaction from grabbing another in Boots, as one would get buying a spare phone charger… a £5 yet very high quality charger.
Why do I love them? These little buttery lip glosses are so softening and comfortable to wear, non-sticky, vanilla scented and have just the right amount pigment and opacity to look fresh and chic. Not Blue Cantrell feat. Sean Paul opaque, but a flattering sheer creaminess that looks incredibly pretty and youthful. Not bad for £5 huh? In fact, this hybrid of a buttery balmy product with a glossy effect, is not rivalled or matched by anything else in my huge lip product collection.
The great shades, texture and price point make these beauties a true Holy Grail product. I have barely used anything else on my lips for a year! You can grab them here.
