Nyx Intense Butter Glosses


Iako nisam fan sjajila, u mojoj kolekciji su se našla ova četiri Nyx intense butter gloss sjajila. Za nekog tko ne nosi sjajila, čak ni u nude varijantama, ovo je nešto potpuno novo. Nyx je inače poznat po svojim Butter gloss sjajilima, a ova sjajila su njihova pojačana verzija, kao što i ime kaže – Intense butter gloss.

Although I’m not a fan of lip glosses, these four Nyx intense butter glosses found a way into my collection. For someone who doesn’t wear lip glosses, even in nude shades, this is something completely new. Nyx is very known for its Butter glosses, and these ones are their elevated version, as the name says - Intense butter gloss.


Stoga, zašto sam se odlučila za ova sjajila? Prilikom posjete Nyx trgovini, Karmen i ja smo swatchale hrpu različitih proizvoda za usne i u tom ludilu činilo mi se kao odlična ideja isprobati nešto novo što inače ne koristim. Zapravo nisam ni pomislila kako bi sa tako tamnim, intenzivnim nijansama mogla imati problema tokom nošenja. Nijanse i pigmentiranost ovih sjajila su me oduševili te sam ih izabrala čak četiri. Prve tri nijanse kupila sam zajedno u setu, a dodala sam im i nijansu Spice cake jer sam se zaljubila u njenu boju prilikom swatchanja. Inače dolaze u 24 nijansi i cijena im je 52 kn za 8 ml.

So why did I decide to go for these glosses? When visiting Nyx shop, Karmen and I swatched a bunch of different lipstick products, and in that madness, it seemed to me like a great idea to try something new, which I don’t usually use. In fact, I didn’t even think that so dark, intense shades would be tricky to wear. The shades and pigmentation of these glosses really impressed me and I chose four of them. I bought the first three shades together in a set, and I added them a shade Spice cake because I fell in love with its color during swatching. They come in 24 different shades and their price is around 6 $ for 8 ml.


Nijanse koje vidite na slikama su:
The shades that you see on the pictures are:

Berry strudel
 – pomalo neonska ljubičasta (mrvicu tamnija nijansa ljubičaste je takozvana „boja godine“ za 2018)
– kind of neon purple (which in a shade darker is the color of the year for 2018)

Oatmeal raisin
 – nešto tamnija smećkasta nude nijansa
– slightly darker brown nude shade

Spice cake
 – moja omiljena duboka ružičasta nijansa
– my favorite deep pink shade

Black cherry tarte
– predivna tamno ljubičasta nijansa čiji intenzitet ovisi o debljini sloja
– gorgeous dark purple, which intensity depends on the thickness of the layer


Tekstura ovih sjajila je jako gusta, ali nisu ljepljivi. Ukoliko su naneseni u tankom sloju neće biti teški na usnama, ali u svakom slučaju uvijek ćete ih osjećati na usnama. Izrazito su sjajni! Bilo ih je prilično teško fotografirati jer imaju baš jaki odsjaj. Aplikator je solidan, lagano spljošten i može se lijepo i precizno njime baratati. Pigmentiranost  je odlična, iako se razlikuje od nijanse do nijanse. Tako je ljubičasta Berry strudel najteža za nanijeti. U tankom sloju je dosta neujednačena i flekava, a sa debljim slojem se dosta nakuplja i curi izvan linije usana. Također i ostale nijanse vole zaći u fine linije oko usana i to je ujedno moj najveći problem s ovim sjajilima. Nosila sam ih sa olovkom ispod, ali čak niti to ih nije uspjelo zadržati unutar linija usana.

The texture of these glossy is very thick, but not sticky. If applied in a thin layer they won't feel heavy on the lips, but in any case, you will always feel them on your lips. They're really shiny! It was pretty difficult to photograph them because they have a strong flashback. The applicator is nice, slightly flattened and it’s good and precise while working with it. The pigmentation is excellent, although it differs from shades to shades. Therefore, the purple shade Berry strudel is the most difficult to apply. A thin layer is fairly uneven and patchy, and with a thicker layer it bleeds outside the lip line. Other shades as well like to bleed outside the lip lines and this is also my biggest problem with these glosses. I wore them with a lipliner underneath, but that didn’t help as well. 


Miris im je izrazito sladak i dosta intenzivan, tako da ćete ga osjetiti na usnama i tokom nošenja. Meni osobno je predobar, kao neki kolač! Ovo nisu transparentna sjajila koja ćete nositi preko ruža, već pružaju potpunu prekrivnost samostalno. Mislim da je ova formula idealna kod svjetlijih nude nijansi, poput divne nijanse Tres leches ili Chocolate crepe. Znate kako sjajila vrlo lako završe na zubima? Vjerujem da to ne bi voljeli riskirati sa tamnim nijansama kao što je Black cherry tarte. Za mene bi ona bila idealna u mat varijanti jer obožavam takve nijanse. Ovako je nosim isključivo za kratko nošenje i kada znam da ću je moći popravljati.

Their scent is extremely sweet and quite intense, so you will feel it on your lips also while wearing them. I adore it, it's almost like a cake! These are not those transparent glosses that you can wear over lipstick, but they give you full coverage on own. I think this formula is ideal for lighter shades, such as gorgeous Tres leches or Chocolate crepes. You know how glosses easily get on your teeth? I believe that you wouldn’t want to risk that with a dark shade such as Black cherry tart. For me, this shade would be ideal in a matte finish because I adore colors like that. This is why I wear this shade only for a short time and when I know I’ll be able to fix it multiple time.


Trajnost im je zaista zavidna kada je riječ o sjajilima. Meni su trajali oko 3-4 sata iako sam ih morala tu i tamo malo popraviti ako su se nejednakomjerno  nakupili na usnama.  Također se prenose na čašu dok pijete te trajnost zavisi i od toga. Pogotovo ne bi preporučila obrok s njima. Nakon skidanja ostavljaju usne lagano obojanima.

They are extremely long wearing for a lip gloss. They lasted about 3-4 hours on me, even though I had to retouch it now and then if the layer was uneven or patchy. They are easily transferred to a glass while drinking so durability also depends on that. Especially, I wouldn’t recommend a meal with them. After taking them off, they leave the lips slightly stained.


Ukoliko ukratko sumiram, ovo su glavne značajke ovih sjajila:

•          Izuzetno pigmentirana i bogata formula
•          Dugotrajni i vrlo sjajni
•          Tamnije nijanse se razlijevaju izvan linije usana
•          Nanos može biti neujednačen ovisno o debiljini sloja
•          Precizan aplikator
•          Odličan raspon nijansi

If I shortly sum it up, this are the main features of this lip glosses:

•          Extremely pigmented and rich formula
•          Long lasting and very shiny
•          Darker shades are bleeding outside lip lines
•          The coating can be patchy depending on the thickness of the layer
•          Precise applicator
•          An excellent range of shades


Trik kako sam ih ja naučila nositi da izvučem najbolje iz njih je da prvo popunim usne olovkom, nanesem sjajilo u vrlo laganom sloju i zatim lagano utapkam prstom. Obavezno stisnem maramicu između usana kako bi spriječila da završe na zubima, a ponekad odvojim jedan sloj maramice i njega lagano pritisnem uz usne. Time naravno oduzmem i dosta pigmentacije, ali nanos bude dosta laganiji i puno bolje izgleda tokom nošenja.

The trick I do when wearing this glosses to get the best out of them is to first line my lips with a lipliner, apply a gloss in a very thin layer and then slightly tap it with my finger. After that I press a tissue between my lips to prevent it from getting on my teeth, and sometimes I separate a single tissue layer and gently press it against my lips. Of course, that takes away some pigmentation, but the layer is then much lighter and looks better when wearing.

Moj ukupni dojam je – previše truda za jedno sjajilo! Iako su mi nijanse koje posjedujem predivne, prilično ih rijetko koristim jer konstantno razmišljam o tome kako izgledaju na usnama. Jesu li se nakupila ili procurila izvan linije usana, imam li nešto na zubima… Vjerujem da bi netko tko inače voli sjajila bio oduševljen s ovako pigmentiranom formulom, pogotovo s neutralnijim nijansama. Usne s njima izgledaju zaista puno i sočno!

Pišite mi ukoliko ste isprobale ova sjajila i kakvo je vaše mišljenje o njima, zaista me zanima!

My overall impression is - too much effort for a lip gloss! Although the shades I own are beautiful, I rarely use them because I constantly think about how they look on my lips. Whether the coat is uneven and patchy or did it bleed out of the lip lines, do I have some on my teeth... I believe that someone who otherwise loves glosses would be delighted with such a pigmented formula, especially with more neutral shades. The lips with them look really full and juicy!

Write to me if you tried these lip glosses and what is your opinion on them, I’m really interested!
