NYX Butter Lipstick Review + Giveaway
I’m a NYX Cosmetics fan since college. I remember, way back around 2008, the only means for me to buy NYX products is through online sellers. My “suki” seller though is no longer selling NYX cosmetics products. I used to pre-order from her and wait for about 3 weeks to a month or so for my orders to arrive (Yes, I wait that long for makeup!).
Thankful that finally NYX Cosmetics is available here in the Philippines! I can now easily go to SM Megamall or SM Makati (branches nearest to my place) to shop and repurchase my favorite NYX makeup!
NYX Butter Lipsticks | P390.00 each
Available in NYX Cosmetics Branches and online through Zalora or Lazada
“Treat your lips to a kiss of smooth, creamy color with our irresistible Butter Lipsticks in 12 new luscious shades. The formula’s delicate satin texture fused with highly saturated color delivers full-yet-lightweight coverage with a luxurious satin finish.”
It’s ThatsHeart, one of my favorite international youtubers who got me hooked to these lip butters! She featured her favorite NYX Butter lipsticks in one of her videos and tada, now I have a growing collection!
I love the unique tubes where you can easily see the exact color of the lipstick even if the tube is closed. The shades are very close to the color of the tube as well. However I find it a little flimsy though, one of my lipsticks got cracked when it accidentally fell on the floor from my vanity table. (one of them just fell while I’m typing this)
You have a variety of shades to choose from! So far they have 34 shades of Butter lipsticks! There must be one that will suit your taste.
NYX Butter Lipsticks have glossy finish but very opaque. You can make it look a little matte by using the dabbing on the tissue and powder dusting technique. They are called “butter lipstick” for a reason. They glide so well on the lips without tugging and feels buttery soft without the heavy feeling.
Formula is very moisturizing and has great pigmentation. It leaves a nice tint on the lips when it wears off. How I wish they smell like butter but these lippies are unscented.
Let’s do the swatches first and start with my favorite shades!
L-R: BLS11 Moonlit Night, BLS02 Sweet Tart, BLS05 Thunderstorm
BLS11 Moonlit Night is a dark maroon shade that can be worn day or night.
BLS02 Sweet Tart is a baby pink shade, perfect for girly mood.
BLS05 Thunderstorm is a berry shade that I always reach out for whenever I can’t decide which color to wear.
These shades are the ones I go for depending on the occasion and my mood that day.
L-R: BSL01 Sweet Shock, BSL14 Taffy, BSL19 Big Cherry
BSL01 Sweet Shock is a bright pink color. I wear this when I don’t feel like wearing that much eye makeup and just want to put the attention on my lips.
BSL14 Taffy, a carnation pink shade perfect for everyday. However I avoid this color whenever I have dark skin. It looks perfect on fair skin tone.
BSL19 Big Cherry is a bright red shade, which for me is the glossy version of MAC Russian red. This color can instantly make your skin glowing and fresh. Your teeth look whiter too!
For now I only have 6 shades but I’m looking forward to collect more shades. I’m currently eyeing on Midnight Swim, Snack Shack, and Tan Lines.
Fading can be noticed in 3-4 hours of wear but the tint is there. You can reapply anytime you want as they don’t dry out your lips.
