NYX Butter Lipstick Swatches and Review

NYX Butter Lipstick

Unless you are living under a rock or don’t care a whit about cosmetics (in which case, why are you reading my blog?) you have probably heard about the NYX Butter Lipsticks by now.

These new lipsticks come in a dazzling array of 22 colors at the moment, surely something for everyone? I was at Ulta the other day and saw them for the first time in person. I promptly directed my step-daughter to fetch me a basket because I knew my hands would be full! I only wound up picking up four because they were lacking in stock at the time, but I am really pleased with the ones I chose.

These lipsticks are full coverage, have a satin finish, feel super creamy and soft, and are non-sticky. They really feel like a supple lip balm on the lips, and are very comfortable and moisturizing.

NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Taupe/Ash

NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder Taupe-Ash

Awhile back I was at Target and saw a product I hadn’t seen before. It was called NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder and it came in six different shades.

Well actually there are two shades per set, so there are actually twelve shades. The shades include Black/Grey (matte black and matte grey), Dark Brown/Brown (matte dark brown and matte brown), Taupe/Ash (matte taupe and matte ashy taupe), Auburn/Red (matte red brown and matte brown with slight red tones), Brunette (matte true brown and matte brown with slight red undertones) and Blonde (light taupe and ash blonde).

Inside each set you will also find a clear wax as well as a mini slanted applicator brush and mini spoolie. I decided on Taupe/Ash because it seemed like the shades and cool tones would would nicely for me.

NYX Butter Gloss in Strawberry Parfait and Peaches And Cream

NYX Butter Gloss

NYX Butter Glosses are a fairly new product and I decided to pick up a few when I was at Ulta recently.

These glosses, which are kind of like a lip gloss/lip balm hybrid, come in twenty-two shades and they are non-sticky. They do each have a sweet cookie-like scent to them, which I don’t find too overwhelming or fake.

They have a sheer to medium coverage, so don’t expect a WALLOP of color from them. What I do like though is that they’re soft, nourishing and shiny.

22 Days of Red Lipstick Featuring NYX Round Lipstick in Chic Red

Red Lipstick Collage

Here we are, at the end of the 22 Days of Red Lipstick series. Welcome to day 22!

Today I’ve got a great, inexpensive red called NYX Chic Red.

This shade came out in 2011 and is my favorite one from the round lipstick line. While it doesn’t offer the most moisture in the world, it does offer incredible pigmentation and the shade itself is beautiful. I also love that you can see the lipstick shade in the bottom of the tube. Love when companies do this!

22 Days of Red Lipstick Featuring NYX Pure Red Matte Lipstick

Happy Tuesday!

If you’re looking for a bright tomato red matte then NYX Pure Red Matte Lipstick might be a good choice for you.

This is a shade I’ve had for many years now and just recently dug out. It’s so fabulous, I had forgotten how great the consistency is. It’s matte yes, but it applies really smoothly, and doesn’t feel like a dry or chalky matte. It’s a creamy matte and has just a hint of a sheen to it, but not much.
