NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet: Review and Swatches

I had so much love for NYX’s Butter Lip Gloss, that when I saw the Butter Lip Balms, I had to try one. 

 For right around $4, NYX Butter Lip Balm is their version of Maybelline’s Baby Lips. You know how I love Babylips, so how did this stack up? 

 In general, more of the Butter Lip Balm shades seem to be more pigmented than the Babylips original range. There is a lovely sweet smell (strawberries) to this and it is very moisturizing. Lasted about 3 hours on me and left my lips in good shape. The packaging is cute too, with the color tube indicating the color inside. *However, there is no SPF in this, so that is a drawback* 

 With Red Velvet you get a sheer wash of pretty red, nothing too crazy. I think these are right on par with Babylips minus the SPF. The formula is a little bit thicker (if that makes sense), but in some ways they are a bit more moisturizing. I will have to try out a few more before I would say I would convert, but it is a good cheap thrill! And cruelty free too!  photo panda-sig_zps4a356226.jpg

  1. I adore my cherry Babylips and anything sporting the words “red” and “velvet” speaks to me on some primal level, lol, so I'll def be getting one of these! I'd never heard of them before so thanks for the intro 🙂 Nice that these are more moisturizing than Babylips… If I had one complaint about them, that'd be it 🙂

  3. No SPF sadly :(. It doesn't mean much to me because I always start any lip with a clear SPF, so this is mainly for the color and moisture. I agree though…it probably should have an spf
