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.

Pigmentation: A-

As you can see from the swatches below, these lipsticks are very pigmented. The color pay off is great.

Texture: A-

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.

Packaging: A-

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.

Price: A

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.

I wanted to show you all what “Mary Janes” looks like in relation to other popular red lipsticks. (L-R) Mary Janes, MAC Ruby Woo, Maybelline On Fire Red, Wet N Wild Stoplight Red.

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.
