The Quick Review: Nyx Butter Lipstick


I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas! When I was doing some Christmas shopping at Ulta I walked past a brand new display of the Nyx Butter Lipsticks on my way to the register and couldn’t check out without picking up at least one. The shade I decided on is Fun Size, a creamy light peachy-pink.

I really love the packaging of these lipsticks – the color of the case corresponds exactly to the lipstick shade, so when you are going through your makeup bag you’ll know exactly which lipstick you’re choosing. The Butter Lipstick formula feels creamy and light weight on the lips and though it feels moisturizing, I still would recommend applying a lip balm underneath the lipstick [especially in the colder months].

This particular shade delivers a sheer peach-pink glaze with one swipe, however, you can build the color up for a more opaque look. As for the scent of these lipsticks, it really isn’t detectable – just the slightest hint of a sweet-fruity fragrance. I have been enjoying wearing Fun Size with black gel eyeliner and Nyx Powder Blush in Summer Peach on my cheeks for a natural, everyday makeup look – but I am sure it would pair beautifully with a dark smokey eye.

Overall, I am impressed with the Nyx Butter Lipsticks and can’t wait to get my hands on a few more shades! They are extremely comfortable to wear, and if you’re looking for a pretty, everyday peachy lipstick, Fun Size is the way to go.

[Note: I have read that the Butter Lipsticks will be available in January – but check out your local Ulta if you’re interested in purchasing one today – that is where I found mine!]

    Hi, Sarah! Thanks so much for following my blog. I’m incredibly excited for these NYX Butter Lipsticks. It seems like people are debuting all of their 2014 stuff a bit early. I heard someone already received the new 2014 Beauty Insider gift from Sephora!

    Oh I have been on a lippie kick this winter! I love sheer shades that can build. What is the wear time? Longer then a gloss but less than a lipstick? 3-4 hours? Just wondering.

      I’d say they last a solid 2-3 hours, which is pretty good in my opinion, especially for a sheer lipstick. Definitely worth checking out – you can’t beat the Nyx prices 🙂
