Lately, early 2000s-inspired glossy lips are making a resurgence—and we're totally here for it. Billie Eilish lathered her lips in clear lip gloss just last week, and before that, Sasha Obama possibly wore the nostalgic look. Even TikTok stars, who were literally babies when the movie Mean Girls came out, are wearing lip gloss in their viral videos. So it's no wonder that a $5 lip gloss is rapidly climbing Amazon's charts, with 45,800 five-star ratings and counting.
The NYX Professional Makeup Butter Lip Gloss moisturizes, smooths, and subtly colors the lips. Its liquid formula is designed to leave lips feeling soft and supple, and reviewers confirm that it does exactly that. "You can't help but want to kiss someone while wearing it," one shopper wrote, while another added, "It makes my lips feel like butter."
The cruelty-free lip gloss is available in 24 shades of pink, purple, and red, with color names like "cupcake" and "strawberry shortcake." If this makes your mouth water just thinking about it, you're not alone: Shoppers insist that the "heavenly" lip product smells like cookies and tastes like vanilla cake.
In addition to treating all the senses, the NYX lip gloss delivers creamy coverage that ranges from sheer to highly pigmented, depending on what colorway you choose. Its formula resists stickiness, tackiness, and feathering, making it so comfortable, you might even forget you're wearing it.
"Wow, I am obsessed with this lip gloss!" one reviewer shared. "I ordered it in the colors Tiramisu and Angel Food Cake, and I'm in love with how smooth and moisturizing they feel on my lips. Both [of] these shades look fantastic on my fair skin with neutral-to-warm undertones, and I would even go as far as saying they're as good as my Buxom lip gloss."
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, you may be wondering: Is it kissproof? Several shoppers have put Amazon's best-selling lip gloss to the test, reporting that it doesn't smudge during kissing and their partners appreciate the sweet flavor.
