This post has been a long time coming. I purchased these NYX Butter Lipsticks (0.16 oz. 4.5 g $6.00) at least a month ago and I’m finally getting to writing this review.
Product Description (according to NYX):
- What it is: Full coverage lipstick that feels like it melts onto the lips.
- What it does: Adds a pop of color to lips.
- Why we love it: This lightweight formula is non-sticky and deposits high impact color with just one stroke.
- How to use: Apply directly on bare lips or over lip liner/primer for more pigmentation.
As you can see from the swatches below, these lipsticks are very pigmented. The color pay off is great.
The texture of these things is amazing. They really do feel like butter on it glides effortlessly across my lips. What I don’t like about the texture is that two of them have already broken. The orange one broke as soon as I took out of the package and slid it across my lips and “Mary Janes” broke as I was swatching it for this post. This probably has a lot to do with the humidity in The Bahamas, but at the same time, I have never had this problem with any of my other lipsticks….maybe its a little too buttery. I was actually quite pissed off at the fact that they broke. The orange was so messy that I ended up throwing it away. Despite this, they go on smoothly, with an even, opaque finish that I admire a lot.
The tube is the color of the lipstick, with a clear portion in the middle. The different colors make the lipstick appear more fun and playful. It’s easy to open and close and the cap has a snug fit, which means it won’t slip off easily in your purse or makeup bag. What I don’t like about the packaging is that the clear portion is easy stained by the lipstick, which is a little unsightly.
These babies go for $6.00, which I think is a very decent price for what is being offered. They can be purchased from nyxcosmetics.com, ulta.com, nordstrom.com, and nastygal.com. (See swatches below L-R)
- Razzle is a bright fuchsia
- Licorice is a deep burgundy
- Pops is a mauve color
- Mary Janes is a true red
L-R: Razzle, Licorice, Pops, Mary Janes
I have amassed quite a few red lipsticks. Okay, I only have four. I just wanted to use the word amassed.
Out of the
five four, I would probably repurchase “Licorice,” and “Pops.” I’m a sucker of a dark lip and I love pinky nudes.
