NYX Apple Strudel Butter Gloss Review + Swatches

NYX says "buttery soft and silky smooth, our scrumptious Butter Lip Glosses taste as sweet as a sugar cookie and make your lips look downright luscious. Swipe it on alone or over your favorite lipstick for a creamy, sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky." NYX offers 22 Butter Gloss shades, this review is for Apple Strudel, which NYX describes as a "peach" shade. NYX Butter Glosses contain 8ml (.27 oz) and sell for about $5 or 6, I received Apple Strudel in an Ipsy Bag. NYX is a cruelty free brand. This lip gloss was made in China. 

NYX Butter Glosses come in cute and collectible, opaque color matched tubes. The product name, NYX logo, and a brief, playful product description are printed on the front of the tube. A full ingredient list and shade name can be found on the back of the tube. Butter Glosses have a standard doe foot applicator. All packaging is recyclable.
I'm just gonna come out and say it - I LOVE NYX Butter Glosses, they may be my favorite lip gloss formula. Butter Gloss is such an apt name for this product - they feel a bit like melted butter on the lips. Not in an oily, greasy way, but in a hydrating, smooth, and emollient way. NYX Butter Glosses are surprisingly hydrating, they're almost like a liquid balm. This lip gloss is never sticky and slick, they feel quite creamy on the lips, and they have a nice weight to them. Apple Strudel applies smoothly, though there's a slight unevenness. Unfortunately, this shade has a tendency to settle into lip lines. I get decent wear from Apple Strudel, about 90 to 120 minutes. This lip gloss never slips out of the lip line, though it is prone to transferring onto other surfaces. Butter Glosses have a sweet, non-specific scent and next to no flavor.
Apple Strudel, though described as a "peach" by NYX, is really more of a light, pink nude with a shimmer-free, glossy finish. Apple Strudel has sheer color payoff that can be built up a bit with an additional coat. This shade pairs beautifully with the Butter Lipstick in Lollies.
NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel is a creamy, moisturizing, peachy pink nude; a great basic shade for light to medium skin tones. I really like Apple Strudel, its easy to wear and goes with just about any look. As a whole, I love and recommend NYX Butter Glosses - I plan on collecting all twenty two shades! If you're looking for a budget friendly pink nude gloss with a great formula, this is it!
