NYX Trios: Butter Glosses & Butter Lipsticks.


There are some things you never see coming. Like having twins - I never would have thought that would happen. I also never thought that at 31 years of age, I'd be sitting in front of a laptop, googling furiously to see what lip products a 17 year old girl uses to make her lips all matte and pouty and nineties-like.

There's no point even saying her name, because you all know who I'm talking about - I added my name to a wait list to get NYX Mauve lip liner and Whipped Caviar matte lipstick. A waiting list for a lip liner. Thirty one, folks. Thirty one.

Anyway, on my quest for the perfect Ms. Jenner lip, I reignited my love affair with NYX cosmetics. I'm lucky enough to have a local stockist, but I wanted MORE! I had a little look on the Littlewoods site (I think it's the same as Very in the UK) and saw loads of products that I hadn't seen on the stand or online anywhere else. Among them were these lip products:

The butter glosses are slowly becoming some of my favourite things to wear - they're comfortable on my lips and they last ages. Plus, they smell delicious which is always a plus! The butter gloss trio contains the shades Red Velvet, Tiramisu, and Devil's Food Cake. The only one I've seen on stands is Tiramisu, I haven't seen the other two colours at all.

I usually wear the butter glosses with a liner, but I absolutely love these. This set was such good value - €16 for three full sized glosses (link here).

Next up, I picked up a butter lipstick trio and one single butter lipstick. The single lipstick is in the shade Lollies, while the trio consists of Snow Cap, Candy Buttons and Taffy. They cost €10 for the single (link here) and €20 for the trio (link here).

I like these a lot. I found Lollies a lot creamier and more pigmented than the others. The one I've been wearing the most is Candy Buttons, it's such a wearable peachy colour.

Littlewoods have a great range of NYX products, definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of the brand but a little bit fed up of the same things on the stand all the time. Bear in mind that they do have free delivery, but it's by courier.

This isn't a sponsored post, I just wanted to share!


  1. ooohhhh. Those lippies look great.
    I'll have a look on my local stand and see if I can find the Mauve lipliner... if its here I'll send it on!

    1. Aw thank you Cindy, I think there's a worldwide shortage, can't even find it on eBay! Mind you, I probably have 3 other mauve liners, so it's complete and utter FOMO but anyway... I could be doing worse ;-)

  2. Dying to get my hands on the Butter Glosses! Can't believe there's a waiting list though for a lip liner!!

    1. The power of a Jenner, eh? Just shout if you want me to pick some of the glosses up for you! x

  3. Always really weird seeing lip products and going no way wouldn't ever wear them. But then you see them on someone and your like yup, I'll take 10 thanks. I'm a scardy cat when it comes to nudes, but I love all these. Damn wish there was a stand near me! They really need a kick up the arse and start rolling out more stocklists or I'll go feckin mad with jealousy, seeing your face covered in lovely colours! ;D x

  4. I have never tried them. I guess this is the time...they look oh so pretty!


Talk at me!
