NYX Butter Gloss in Raspberry Tart Review

I am constantly seeing people rave about the NYX Butter Glosses and I can't believe it took me so long to try this product! I guess I'm always a little skeptical about a lot of hype surrounding a product, so I'm glad I've finally tried it out for myself. Did it live up to the hype? Read on to find out!

NYX Butter Gloss in Raspberry Tart
Price: $4.99+
Available at Ulta, Target, select CVS Stores, and nyxcosmetics.com
Comes in 22 different shades


 I like how the packaging on these matches the shade color, so it's easy to figure out which shade is which if you own more than one. The casing is plastic and this product has a doe foot applicator. I really enjoy that the size of this gloss is comparable to a tube of lipstick as well! I'm not really sure why but I prefer short compact glosses to longer ones (like the NYX Megashine Lip Glosses).


We all know that I need to stop going for the berry-purple shades when buying lip products (gosh I have issues...), but Raspberry Tart was just too beautiful to pass up! I think it has the perfect balance of color payoff- it doesn't come off looking like a liquid lipstick, but it also doesn't look like it might as well be a clear gloss.

Here is a swatch of this color:


And here it is next to some of my other favorite berry-purple lip glosses. It is definitely the most purple one I have.


On my lips this feels amazing! My lips can be dry and cracked and gross, but when I put this on they instantly feel soft and moisturized. And there's no stickiness. As far as lasting power, this is about average. I have to apply it after eating and drinking (which I expect), but it doesn't wear of unreasonably fast.

This review has turned into a rave, but I highly recommend trying this out. This is easily my favorite formula of lip gloss out of all the different kinds I own! Wow, I haven't done a negative post in a while... you guys probably think I just rave about everything! But I really love this product, and I'm going to get more shades soon.

Have you tried the NYX Butter Glosses? What is your favorite brand for lip glosses?

  1. Currently I'm loving Crazy Rumors! They're cruelty free which is definitely a plus, and they seem more like tinted moisturisers but with enough colour to make a difference :)

    1. I like the shade too! It's a lot more toned down than the purples I normally wear!

  4. I agree...this shade is to pretty to pass up! I love the texture and delicious scent of the NYX Butter Glosses. I have Eclair and it is a gorgeous shade of pale pink.
    Nice review.

  5. I was ulta yesterday and I was going to try this shade but there wasn't a tester. I only have about 1 true purple and the rest just have purple undertones. This color is gorgeous

  6. Well I love NYX their products are affordable and great quality. I have a lot of gloss and although I like them I am more of a lip cream and lipstick fanatic. I love the xtreme lip creams by NYX they are some of my favs!

    1. I agree, and nyx has really stepped it up in the past couple years! I love so many of their products! I've actually never tried the lip creams though, so I might check those out soon.
