I picked up 2 NYX Butter Lipsticks at IMATS a couple weeks ago. They were so pretty and I’m so weak when it comes to makeup! They come in a range of 22 shades, and I purchased Pops and Sweet Tart.
These lipsticks come in a regular plastic tube colored close to the shade of the actual lipstick. The scent is lighter than a standard lipstick scent and hardly noticeable.
The website describes these as “lipsticks that melt on your lips,” and I completely agree. The texture is non-sticky and lightweight, similar to applying a clear lip balm. The color glided onto my lips like butter, in a soft, creamy and natural way, not a greasy, slippery way. There is no drag, and it feels very moisturizing. I always apply lip balm before lipstick, but in this case, I didn’t feel like I had to.
The pigmentation is great in these lipsticks – not quite full coverage, but very soft looking. It was nice to go out and not feel like I was wearing lipstick. My lips felt like I was only wearing chapstick.
For Pops, I applied several swipes to get fuller coverage, but it still did not feel heavy or sticky. Sweet Tart is a bit streakier than Pops, but still very much wearable.
I really like these lipsticks and plan to pick up more on my next visit to Ulta. For only $6, they are a great buy!
