If given the choice I would probably always go with my beloved matte lipsticks but lately I’ve come across a lip gloss, which has entirely changed my life. Okay, maybe I’m being a little overdramatic but if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know I’m all about lipstick and all about the mattes! You will hardly ever see me anywhere without some kind of product on my lips but 99.9% of the time it will NOT be a lip gloss as I’m usually not too keen on glosses. Don’t ask me why it’s just personal preferences.
I think the only gloss I have ever raved about on my blog is the NYX butter gloss, which I genuinely do love. Only quite recently I discovered that NYX came out with Intense Butter Glosses. Since I loved the original butter glosses I couldn’t help myself and before I knew it I had pressed the confirm order button and one was already one its way to me.
For some reason when buying glosses I’m always drawn towards the neutrals, so the shade I went with is number 11 Tres Leches. While I have absolutely no clue how to pronounce this I do know that I’m blown away by this color. It’s honestly the perfect nude gloss. It was love at first swatch!
Just look at this beautiful color and don’t even get me started on the pigmentation! I am seriously so impressed by how pigmented this gloss is! In my opinion it’s so perfect for everyday and goes with pretty much every makeup look. Since I often tend to go a bit dramatic and overboard with my eye makeup, once I start it’s so hard to stop, I think this is the perfect neutral color to even everything out.
Also I love the formula. I think compared to the original butter glosses these feel even more moisturizing and tad thicker. But what’s most important to me is that these are not sticky because I cannot deal sticky glosses!
As you can see in the picture below these are very similar in packaging to the butter glosses. Basically the only difference is the shiny top part. As always I’ve included a picture of how it looks like on the lips.
So as you can already guess I have found a new favorite lip gloss and I have a feeling I’m going to purchase this in a few more colors! I think these are such nice glosses because they are insanely pigmented, quite long lasting, non-sticky and have I mentioned how good they smell?
Are you a gloss or lipstick kinda girl?
Thanks for reading!
