BeautyProduct Reviews NYX Butter Lipsticks – Review & Swatches August 26, 2014 Hi everyone! It was a few months back that I did an introduction post on NYX’s Butter lipsticks. You can see the complete color range of this line HERE. Today however, I’m reviewing four of the shades I’ve had my eye on since their release ;) Cotton Candy – Little Susie – Razzle – Big Cherry There are so many colors within the Butter Lipstick line and as hard as it was to choose from the amazing shades available, I opted for the four colors above. I wanted to test out a shade from their different color families and these four seemed to be the most suitable candidate to represent each category. The overall texture of these lipsticks live up to their name of Butter as they’re really creamy and apply quite smoothly. The lasting power is definitely better with the more vibrant shades and they also leave a bitten/rosy stain behind even after they wear off. I heard about the lighter/nude shades to apply quite poorly and patchy so I specifically steered clear of the nude shades. Cotton Candy: Lets get the ‘not my absolute favorite’ out the way first. This color seemed nude enough but the hint of coral undertone made me think it would be a good natural lip option. Unfortunately it didn’t apply the same shade as it is in the tube. I was expecting a soft coral/nude but instead I got a very pasty and light pink. It just didn’t look flattering against my NC30 skin so this is not one I reach out for. Formula was slightly more dry as well compared to the other shades. Little Susie: This color is truly beautiful! I applied a single coat and blended the color for a sheer coverage which gives off a hydrated natural look to the lips but it’s definitely buildable to achieve the vibrant shade that is in the tube. It also leaves a soft stain behind after it wears off. This is definitely an everyday favorite for me. Razzle: Razzle was the first color that jumped out at me amongst the many shades available within the Butter Lipstick line. I just loved the blue undertone of the fuchsia pink and the color translates exactly the same on the lips as it is in the tube. Great pigmentation which can be sheered down or built up to a full opaque finish. Big Cherry: I contemplated between this red shade and another named Mary Janes. In the end I picked Big Cherry as it had a slight more punch in color than Mary Janes and I’m very happy with it. It’s a beautiful classic red with just enough blue and orange undertone which would complement many different skin tones. Coupled with sharp black eyeliner, it’s a stunning color I highly recommend. Overall, NYX Butter Lipstick line is a great drugstore alternative if you’re looking for good color payoff, creamy texture and an amazing variety of shades. There really is a shade for everyone and for whatever look you’re trying to achieve. As mentioned in the beginning, I would stay away from the more nude range of colors as I know they apply uneven, a bit more on the dry side and emphasise lines and dryness on the lips. The only problem I’ve found with this line – as with NYX’s other range of products is availability. I found these four shades in Target (US) and every drugstore I’ve been to had a different group of colors available. I haven’t seen the complete range of Butter Lipsticks anywhere so if you know any stores which stock the full line, please leave it in the comments below for those who are interested ;) Until then, your best option would be the NYX website HERE or online. Butter Lipsticks retail at $6 each. Have you got any Butter Lipsticks?

Check them out here […] Reply Karen August 28, 2014 at 7:02 pm I wish I saw this post before I went crazy on the nude shades. It’s true what you wrote -they’re terrible. But I love the little susie color you used. I think I’ll pick that up. Thanks Sarah! Reply Sarah September 15, 2014 at 5:22 am I was very disappointed with the lighter shades too. Every other color has such great payoff, you’d think they would be the same across the whole range but at least there are plenty of other colors to make up for it I guess :) xx Reply Jo Bennett August 28, 2014 at 2:44 pm Oh WoW! these look so gorgeous! I kept seeing them at CVS but never really paid much attention. That Big Cherry red is calling my name. I have to go shopping, like now! lol Reply Sarah September 15, 2014 at 5:21 am Big Cherry is a stunning red indeed. Let me know how you like it :) xx Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Notify me when new comments are added.
