REVIEW: NYX Intense Butter Glosses, round 2

One of my favorite makeup items to shop for is lip products, namely lipsticks and lip glosses. In today's world of beauty, those categories aren't so cut and dry anymore, with products like liquid lipsticks and lip tint oils having emerged. I am usually anxious to try new lip products that have claims like high pigmentation and long wear. I have more lip products than I could ever use up; however, I try to get as much use out of them as possible!

Having said that, I was happy to see NYX added additional colors to its line of Intense Butter Glosses. I tried some of the original Butter Glosses and wasn't too pleased, as the product did little for my pigmented lips, nor did it last long. When the company released the Intense version with claims high pigmentation, I bought some colors, loved them, and have bought a couple more since. When I learned of these recently added shades, I knew I had to get more! 

From left to right:
I first bought Toasted Marshmallow and Spice Cake, then got Tres Leches, and later picked up Funnel Delight. I got the new shades Apple Dumpling and Cherry Custard last weekend.

Swatches from left to right (with flash): 
Toasted Marshmallow, Spice Cake, Tres Leches, Funnel Delight, Apple Dumpling, Cherry Custard
Apple Dumpling is a peachy-toned nude (compared to Tres Leches, which is more tan). I can wear it with or without liner, whereas I always couple Tres Leches with a brown liner. Cherry Custard is a beautiful, vibrant red that is suitable for everyday wear.

I enjoy wearing these because they glide on easily, are comfortable on my lips, have high pigmentation and last for a decent period of time. The Intense Butter Gloss does come off pretty easily when eating or drinking, but it's a pleasure to reapply. I can't wait 'til the spring/summer season to get some of the brighter shades!
