NYX Butter Lipsticks: Review and Swatches

One product I have really been loving lately are the NYX Butter Lipsticks. These are so great! Wide variation of colors, only $5, and the formula is super creamy and pigmented! They are pretty much everything you would ask for in a lipstick. I currently only have three of the colors, but I most definitely plan on picking up more of them. 

The three shades I own are Pops, Little Susie, and Candy Buttons. (from left to right in the top picture) Little Susie was actually from an Ipsy bag a couple of months ago, but believe or not, I wanted to pick up that shade even before it was in my ipsy bag. Little Susie is a deeper pink, sort of a fuchsia, but not exactly a fuchsia. It also has yellow undertones in it, so it is definitely a warmer lipstick. Candy Buttons is just a pretty peachy pink, nothing all too special. It's a little more on the cooler side, however. Pops is a great 'your lips but better' color, it's a pinky mauve color.  It is apparently a dupe for Nars Audacious Lipstick in 'Anita'. It's a little pinker than Nars Anita, based on the side by side swatches of the two shades, however.. But overall, I think it's a very flattering color for a variety of skintones.

Overall, I would highly recommend these lipsticks. They are very pigmented, have a wear time of about 3 - 4 hours or so, but leave a pretty stain as they fade throughout the day. 

I don't think I can really say anything bad about them. you can easily store them right side up or upside down, since they're not the bullet shape of MAC lipsticks, so you can easily see the colors if you store them upside down. I know some people don't like how the MAC bullet shape lipsticks store, so you won't have that problem with this one. 

Comment down below if you have tried these lovely lipsticks, and if you have, let me know some of your favorite shades so I can pick up more!
