NYX Butter Lipstick in Cotton Candy: Thoughts, Review, and Swatches

Many of you have seen teaser pics of my haul including one of the brand new NYX Butter Lipsticks and the review is finally here!I have been a fan of NYX’s Butter glosses, so the thought of a similar lipstick intrigued me. There is a wide range of colors, but I went against my normal shopping habits and picked out a very light pink.With 22 shades to choose from at $5.99 there is sure to be something to please everyone. I found this at Ulta, but the displays are already running dry! And they also don’t have all the colors.

NYX BUTTER LIPSTICK

The packaging of these lipsticks is cuter than their regular matte lipsticks (which have the same packaging in black), but they still look a tad little-girlish and cheap. However, the color makes it easy to find in your stash. 

The smell of these is slightly sweet and a bit artificial, but you really have to sniff them to pick up on that. The formula of these is actually really nice. These are buttery and glide onto the lips well, providing a nice opacity of coverage. 
Cotton Candy is a very very light baby pink, so be aware of that, since it looks much darker than it appears on the lips. For this color, prep lips well. Other, darker colors in this line seem to be much more swipe and go.
Cotton Candy gives my pout a very springy and mod vibe. Butter Lipsticks are comfortable to wear, but only last me about 2 and a half hours. I just find them a little too light to really stick around, but I’ve never been one to mind reapplying a lip product on normal, non special event days.
Keep in mind, this wear time may only be for the lighter colors. I am hoping to pick up a darker shade to compare. 
Overall, I think NYX Butter Lipsticks are a great product at a nice price point and I have been reaching for Cotton Candy often since I have picked it up!
Have you tried any of the NYX Butter Lipsticks? Thoughts?

  3. The two colors I wanted (Licorice and Pops) were sold out by the time I checked my ULTA. I read on Nouvea Cheap blog that NYX has begun selling at Walgreens and CVS. Sadly, my ULTA has not restocked and I have made three trips over the last three weeks checking in. I'm tempted to buy everything at ULTA b/c of the reward-points and coupons but sometimes I have to wait couple of months and my ULTA is kind of far from me. BTW I'm glad you had a good experience w/ this lighter shade b/c everyone and their mothers and me are not impressed by the lighter shades. Streaky! Lastly, sorry I have not been able to join your IG nude lippie thread yet, but I kind of have a sensitive dry lips situation going on and wearing lipstick stings… I did too many lip swatches in one night and am paying the price now. 😦

  5. Yeah, I have heard most people don't like the lighter shades, but I don't mind fiddling with them!! I wish Ulta's would stock things faster ugh!! Mine does that as well—so annoying. And its okay, just do a thread next month! 🙂
