NYX Butter Gloss is My Secret to Revive Dry, Uncomfortable Lipstick

NYX Butter Gloss 1
I was going through my lipstick drawers and I kept looking at these NYX Butter Gloss, which I bought a few years ago for one sole purpose. Yeap. The one and only lip gloss that I used, like, love and still using 🙂 . I still remember a few years ago when NYX arrived Sephora. It was so exclusive and limited that every single day all the NYX counter would be swamped with girls. I literally have to snuck one arm in between waists to grab something. IT WAS INSANE. There was two product that was all hyped up back then. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, which I hate and this NYX Butter Gloss.

Butter Gloss is a lip gloss that is said to be super hydrating and not sticky. Did someone said not sticky? I’m in! But that’s not all what people say about Butter Gloss. The reason why I bought a lip gloss (rare case) was because I read about how this Butter Gloss works like a charm as lipstick topper, especially on dry lipstick. So I went on a hunt for Créme Brulee. That’s the shade that errrbody was raving for. I have to hunt for it because it was sold out everywhere. Whenever Sephora restock them, it was sold out again.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil: Word On The Street That It’s Anastasia Beverly Hills Dupe, The Rumours Are True

NYX Micro Brow Pencil
If there is one makeup application that I am proud of, that would be my brow shaping. I go through brow pencil so fast that I no longer bother to spend loads on eyebrow pencil. Everyone on Youtube including their mama and grandma uses Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. Brow Wiz is a ultra-thin automatic pencil that is said to be the best among the best. When NYX came out with Micro Brow Pencil, everyone on Youtube started to compare it with Brow Wiz saying it is a cheaper dupe.

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray: Yay or nay?

I have never been lucky with makeup setting spray (read here and here), what more a matte finish long lasting setting spray. It is quite hard to find NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray at Sephora as it is always sold out. You know what people say, when it’s hard to find, you would want it badly. When I finally managed to track it down, I bought it in a split second. I figure what have I got to lose since it is cheaper and it was the Sephora Black Card member private sale.

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray
There are two variant of makeup setting spray within NYX. One is this Matte Finish (or Matte Shine-Free Finish according to NYX website) while the other one is Dewy Finish (or Dewy Glow Finish). I can be quite an oil slick by mid day so Dewy Finish is a definite no-no for me. I remember Shaaanxo from YouTube mention before that she love this stuff. If Shaaanxo likes it, I would too. Boo! Wrong thinking 😛

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo: Feeling love and hate at the same time, well mostly hate

Ever since NYX was made available in Sephora, I haven’t properly look into its range of products. How can I. Every time I went to Sephora KLCC, NYX shelf is always the busiest and crowded of all. Beats the whole Sephora crowd. There is something about NYX. I see girls with a group of friends making a beeline to the section, crowding the entire section and took several hours swatching, making it almost impossible for me to even see anything. I think I was in luck one Sunday. I went to Sephora KLCC with the intention of grabbing the Soft Matte Lip Cream. I managed to do three swatches (I know right, just three swatches) before a group of girls pushing me away from my back, my left and right. Haigh. Again.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream San Paulo
The shades that I managed to swatch is San Paulo, Milan and Istanbul. I wanted an everyday shade so the first I pick up was Istanbul. The shade is alright and then I swatched Milan and it is too pale for my dark lips. I had my eyes on San Paulo. The swatch came out vibrant, lovely dark fuchsia shade but I was worried that it might be too bold on me. I couldn’t make up my mind between Istanbul or San Paulo so I walk around a bit to decide.
