Product Review: NYX Butter Gloss

NYX Butter Gloss As the name suggests, these buttery lip glosses are very moisturizing and comfortable to wear on the lips. I have the shades (L to R) Eclair, Maple Blonde, and Peach Cobbler.  I love them all and hope to grab a couple of others. Available at Ulta and Target for only $4.99 each. Gold flatware.  Takes some effort to care for but oh so beautiful.
