Product Review – NYX Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake


I finally did it. I broke down and bought the lip gloss I’ve been eying for a couple of weeks. It wasn’t much of a sacrifice since it was only $5, but as I’ve said before, I’m lazy and try to avoid going to stores if I can help it. However, I can confidently say it was worth the trip. I love this lip gloss.

This lip gloss is perfect for everyday wear. It’s a medium nude pink that I think looks great with everything. It’s light, and the formula isn’t too sticky. It is very pigmented though, as you can see in the pictures, and I can wear it by itself, which I love. Plus, it’s not too shiny, so even you gloss skeptics out there might like it.

One thing I do dislike about it is that it dries out my lips some, so I definitely recommend putting on a colorless lip balm before applying. Of course, I am currently out of lip balm, so I don’t know that this would work for sure, but I imagine that it would. Anyone have any recommendations for some natural lip balms? I can’t seem to decide on one.

So far, this is my favorite everyday lip gloss I’ve found. I’ve worn it every day that I’ve worn makeup since I bought it, and it hasn’t let me down yet. You can get it at Target or Ulta among other places, and I’ve included the link below to get it on Amazon, just in case you’re like me and hate going into stores or don’t want to chance going to Target and coming out with $100 worth of things you don’t need.

Amazon Makeup You Can Be Confident In

If you’re anything like me, you would rather spend an extra $20 to avoid paying $7 in shipping. That’s why I love Amazon Prime. I love having free two-day shipping, and to me, it’s totally worth the $100 a year. If you order 5 or 6 times, you’ve already made up for it in shipping. However, buying things on Amazon can be risky, especially when it’s something like clothing or makeup. So, how can you be confident in the makeup you order from Amazon?

One way to do this is to filter your search results by what is available through Amazon Prime. This way, you know you’ll at least get your products, and they are backed up by Amazon. Amazon’s customer service has been super helpful on the rare occasions that I haven’t gotten my items, and they’ve given me a full refund as well as a free month of Prime. By shopping with Amazon Prime, your purchases are safer than they would be from a third-party seller.

Another way you can be confident in your Amazon purchases is to read the reviews on a product. If more people have issues with the product than think it’s great, stay away. More often than not, we are the rule rather than the exception, so avoid makeup that very few people haven’t had problems with. Also, look to the reviews to see if the shade descriptions and pictures are accurate. If they aren’t, you may still find something you like, but be wary of it, because it could be inconsistent. I don’t know about you, but I like consistency in my makeup shades. If I find something I like, I don’t want it to be different the next time I buy it.

Finally, you can ensure you get what you’re looking for by shopping by brand. When you shop by department and choose health and beauty, you have the option to shop by brand, so you can buy makeup from brands you already know and love. You can also search brands in all departments, because sometimes things don’t get tagged correctly. Amazon has lots of brands available, like NYX, Revlon, Benefit, and many more, so you can easily find your favorites. A lot of them are available at cheaper prices than you can find in stores, which is great for people like me, who like to save money.

Amazon is a great way to buy makeup, but you have to be careful, because things don’t always live up to their descriptions. If you follow the steps above, however, you should be able to find great makeup that you can be confident in. What are some things you’ve bought from Amazon that you weren’t sure about at first, but now you love?
