NYX Butter Lipstick Review & Swatches
All the raving is true NYX Butter Lipstick ($6) is all that and a bag of chips. These new lightweight buttery lipsticks have a gorgeous glide across lips with a nice moist feel and excellent pigment.
What more could you want for six bucks?
Total cheap thrill!
I don’t think NYX Butter Lipstick is comparable to colored lip balms we’ve seen in the past like Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter. It’s truly a unique formula all its own in my experience with it and not like any other colored balms I’ve tried recently.

NYX Licorice Butter Lipstick
I’d call the product a hybrid formula that’s a cross between a lip balm or butter and a lipstick. It has the pigment of a lipstick and the texture of a beautifully butter balm. I was very impressed with the pigment on all five of the twenty two shades that NYX Cosmetics offers in this formula. Every single shade applied opaque without being sheer or light in color. For a lip balm style formula these wore on for a solid four hours and faded a bit into hour five. The glide on lips beautifully without tugging or skipping. I felt like I was applying my favorite lip balm but with a better formula. Truly “butter” is an excellent way to put it as they have a buttery feel on lips with a moist finish. They are hydrating but not incredibly so…! Through the wear my lips never felt tight or dried out so they did supply fairly decent moisture. They have no taste or fragrance.

On the down side I felt the shades applied slightly unevenly….they seemed to end out on my upper and lower lip line so a little transparent lip liner or even colored lip liner might be a good idea to keep them “inside the lines” so to speak. They don’t migrate of feather on me through the wear, however, I find I am doing a little clean up duty after application as they seem to want to apply all on my lips and outside of them.
I’m not a fan of NYX Butter Gloss because I felt the shades weren’t entirely wearable but NYX did a great job with the Butter Lipstick shades are there is a wide variety of colors from nudes to vibrant reds to corals. There’s a perfect shade for everyone here.
Overall, NYX Butter Lipstick are excellent quality at a small price tag. I’d suggest trying out a few shades yourself as you’re bound to love on these.
They gain a Muse Approval.
