Today’s post is about a product I’ve been using a lot since I bought it this past spring, so much so that it’s almost done already! This month’s featured brand with the Canadian Beauty Bloggers is NYX so thought I’d show you my Butter Gloss in Vanilla Cream Pie.
It has a doe foot applicator that is slightly slanted at the end and it works well.
NYX describes Vanilla Cream Pie as a mauve, but to me mauve is more of a pastel purple. I find this one to actually be quite a bright pink on its own, with a blue undertone.
Since this is a medium-sheer lippie it does get toned down a bit by your own lip colour. If you look at it up close (like in the picture below) you can see that it settles a bit into the fine lines, but in real life at normal distance you cannot see that.
I really like the natural look that it gives.
This summer my go-to look was very natural (which you can see in my review of the Manna Kadar Lip Locked Stain in Lucky) and although I wore nude lips A LOT I also wanted a pinkier alternative for days where it just went better with my clothing. I already have the butter gloss in Crème Brûlée which I absolutely love so after doing lots of research online about the different colours I settled on Vanilla Cream Pie, and it is exactly what I was looking for!
Have you tried any colours from the butter gloss line?
