Budget Beauty Must Buys : Nyx Butter Gloss & Revlon Matte Balm

by Mehak Shahani on July 8, 2014

in Lip Products, lipgloss, Reviews

Two products that are heating up the beauty space at a pretty affordable price point – The Nyx Butter gloss (5 USD thats like 300 bucks !) and the Revlon Matte Balm (Approx 10 USD which is 600 bucks).

NYX Butter Glosses


See swatches of these cuties – the Nyx Butter Glosses at Impression Blend

The Nyx butter gloss is driving me nuts because everyone is going crazy about how at 5$ these are supposed to be the best lipglosses in the market with a buttery, smooth texture. Everyone seems to love these, and the only problem Im seeing in them is that the shades all seem very milky which is not a very good sign for Indian skin. I haven’t seen them in india yet and quite frankly the previous Nyx offering- the round lipglosses were kind of dissapointing , so the fact that everyone seems to be going gaga over these is a good sign

Shades I would buy: Peach Cobbler is the only one that really excites me



See swatches of these- the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms at Allison Anderson and Within color

The other thing Im DYING to try (I think these are now available in India) are the Revlon Matte Balms !!! My cousin just returned from London and she says these are in her word “AHH-MAZING”. She has started talking like one of them londoners I tell you, she couldn’t stop praising these. They are like soft, matte lipsticks with good moisturization, excellent staying power and overall a stellar finish !! She loved them and ┬áso did beauty bloggers across the world.

Shades I would buy:  Mischievous, Audacious and Unapologetic

I have 4 shades of NYX butter glosses and they are fab. Not at all milky and I love the variety of shades!
The Revlon Matte Balms are pretty amazing too but quite pricey at 800 bucks.

Matte lipblams, I would love to have them in my life..


Gowthami@BeautyFrontline July 8, 2014 at 1:52 pm

I like Elusive and Audacious so much!! Nyx glosses yet to try! x


Xuvious July 8, 2014 at 2:02 pm

I love Peaches and Cobbler!
Revlon Matte Balm is 800 but if you add another 100 I think L’oreal Moist Matte are much better quality wise. :)

i love NYX..they are super smooth and yummilicios..


Lana July 8, 2014 at 3:10 pm

NYX butter gloss doesn’t excite me because I’m not that much of a lip gloss person. But i have the Revlon Matte Balm in Sultry and I love it, I’ll definitely be picking up more of them, I just wish they had more shades


Shailja @BeABrideEveryday July 8, 2014 at 3:36 pm

My favourite ones are elusive and showy.. have not tried NYX balms yet :(


Gunjan Mittal July 8, 2014 at 3:39 pm

Thanks for the review. I was about to ask someone to get these NYX glosses for me..


Riddhi July 8, 2014 at 5:09 pm

Wow! Would love to try the Revlon Matte Balms!:)


Vini @dndb July 8, 2014 at 5:28 pm

The NYX one is my favorite these days..


krithi July 8, 2014 at 7:10 pm

I have tried both the products
I would select Nyx gloss anytime over revlon
Revlon is 800 in India and its not that impressive


Anusha July 8, 2014 at 7:29 pm

I have Revlon matte balm in striking, NYX yet to try.


Shivi@COSMOCHICS July 8, 2014 at 7:35 pm

Would love to try these! NYX looks amazing! and at that price they are absolutely on my list! :)


Priyanka Jain July 8, 2014 at 8:03 pm

I love unapologetic :) haven’t tried nyx butter gloss yet..


Harine July 8, 2014 at 8:49 pm

Would love to try Revlon…


Kamana@ProjectKahani July 8, 2014 at 9:12 pm

I totally agree the NYX Butter gloss feels so heavy and way to creamy on my lips. On the other hand – love Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms since with one coat you get a great shade without the feel of a heavy balm.


A Golden Tulip July 8, 2014 at 11:31 pm

I have been eyeing revlon ones for sometime now, maybe its time to give them a try…



Karishma July 9, 2014 at 4:23 am

The Matt balms are indeed Ahh-mazing :)


Embellished July 9, 2014 at 10:10 am

Yep. The Revlon ones are available in India and the shades are BEAUTIFUL.



laks July 9, 2014 at 10:33 am

gonna try NYX butter gloss ASAP.. :D


fiona furtado July 9, 2014 at 11:50 am

I would definitely want to try NYX butter gloss. I have the Revlon Matte balm and its not impressive at all.


swastika July 9, 2014 at 1:27 pm

I have tried the Revlon ones at the store and simply loved the texture – though I wasn’t willing to pay 800 bucks for this


Priya. N July 9, 2014 at 6:34 pm

Hi Mehak did you check Sephora Delhi, the glosses are available there I got one of them a while back when a friend was visiting from Delhi but many of the shades are mostly out of stock :( hope you find the shades you want :)


mehak July 10, 2014 at 3:18 pm

Hey priya
Thanks for the heads up will try
. How are they by the way?


Priya. N July 11, 2014 at 11:05 am

They are really good and def better than other lip glosses I will try to review it soon, but I find them quite sheer esp the shade I have strawberry parfait its better to go with darker brighter shades, your choice the peach cobbler one would be perfect , Oh and I love how edible they smell :D


coralcrue July 9, 2014 at 10:07 pm

maybe Revlon can take a cue and re-consider their pricing in India :P


Swati July 10, 2014 at 5:55 pm

Now I cannot wait to try these too. I wish the Revlon ones were priced a bit less though.


The PinkTrends July 10, 2014 at 11:53 pm

will like to try out the NYX ones.. not a huge fan of Revlon ones bcx of the price it comes and the quality it offers..


Ishita August 10, 2014 at 11:27 pm

tanavi August 26, 2014 at 2:51 pm
