I posted a couple of weeks ago about creating a signature look and that mine included a pink lip. Before starting this blog I primarily stuck to my go-to pink (MAC Snob) before branching out to trying new shades and brands. Since receiving a NYX Butter lipstick in an Ipsy bag, I’ve been obsessed with trying new shades and exploring NYX a bit further. I’ve rounded up some of the pink lipsticks I’ve purchased that I currently have in rotation. I’m not a big swatcher however, and after swatching them on my wrist I realize that I have four shades that look more like two.
1. NYX Black Label Lipstick in BLL 191 – Not sure why these lipsticks can’t have names, but this is a mauvey pink color that is a bit deeper than snob. It’s got a nice shine to it and applies super easy. I don’t have to swipe it a thousand times to reach the desired shade. I believe Black Label is about to be discontinued, so click the link to purchase the last few tubes available!
2. NYX Butter Lipstick in Pops – This looks so much like the first lipstick on the swatch! This is also a mauvey pink but is slightly deeper and does not have a metallic finish. I LOVE the texture of the Butter lipsticks because they feel more like a balm when rubbed on. My lips feel moisturized and I don’t have to worry about it smearing on my teeth. This is amazing on it’s own or with a bit of gloss on the cupids bow.
3. NYX Butter Lipstick in Sweet Tart – This is a new shade I picked up over the weekend and I really like it! I wore it to a party on Saturday to give my monotone outfit a pop of fun color. It screams summer because it reminds me of a slice of watermelon or dragonfruit. This is the perfect shade to pair with your favorite sunglasses!
4. NYX Butter Lip Balm in Parfait – Since I fell in love with the lipsticks, I also decided to give the lip balm a try. I was shocked at how much color comes out of these balms. You could truly pack it on and wear it as more of a lipstick. This shade reminds me more of a pinky strawberry and it feels amazing on the lips! I suggest purchasing this if you are not a fan of lipstick and find gloss too sticky in the summer.
I love these shades with my skin tone and I feel they would look great on everyone! What are your favorite NYX lip colors? I’m dying to try more and my local drugstore may not have them all!
