NYX Butter Gloss Raspberry Tart - Swatch and Review



Hello beautifuls,

I had a rather busy week so I've been also slacking from blogging but I'm back and trying to get through a couple of reviews at least. I have been testing and using this new NYX Butter gloss for a few weeks now and here's what I think of it.


Packaging
  • I think the packaging is pretty standard and comes with a doe foot applicator. I find that the color is misleading, at least with this particular shade 
  • 0.27 oz or 8 ml

Product
  • Raspberry Tart is a medium fuchsia with a semi-sheer finish. So as you can see the actual color of the gloss is lighter and brighter. I was expecting a darker berry shade similar to the packaging.
  • Even though the gloss is a little sheer it is still fairly saturated and offered medium light coverage. It has a nice consistency I think. Not too thick or too thin. Non sticky or slippery.  It just hugs your lips with comfort. 
  • I think it's just slightly moisturizing and I get about 2-3 hours of wear before it starts fading.
  • I detect a sweet sugary scent. Didn't find it offensive.

Final Thought

I do like this gloss even if I feel there's nothing to write home about.  Packaging color is misleading since I find the actual color to be lighter and brighter. It is pretty comfortable. If you don't mind a sheer gloss with a bit of color and average wear, I think you'll like these.

Rating: 8/10

Price: $4.99
Availability: Ulta, NYX Cosmetics

  1. I picked up this exact same shade in a recent haul from an online order from a local make up site here! It's such an amazing shade, I love how it seems deep purple but actually is a sheer pinky purple! The formula of these are just perfect too, so hydrating and yet not too slippery!

    1. I'm glad you're enjoying it. I've been keeping it in my purse for touch ups or in case I need some moisture on my lips

  2. Wow completely different colour to the packaging but very pretty! I've actually just put a post up about a NARS lipstick I just bought that was a beautiful berry shade similar to your first photo above - pricey but worth it!

  4. I wouldn't have guessed that was the color from the tube - but it is lovely none the less!

    1. I read reviews that they were on the sheer but I didn't expect this color to be so bright considering it had a much darker packaging. Not too bad I guess. I find it easy to wear

  5. That's a pretty shade, but I would have been really disappointed to pick this up, seeing as how the packaging is so dark. I was really expecting a much darker gloss!

    1. My thought exactly. The decent formula partially made up for it.
