Simply Lippy Challenge Day 54 | NYX Matte Lipstick in Shade Butter

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of butter? For me, it’s the  rice creamy, and that’s exactly what came to mind when I tried out today’s shade, Butter, from NYX.


Generally I really like NYX products, I’ve tried a few of their lipsticks and I’m obsessed with their vinyl liquid eyeliner, so I had high hopes for their matte lipstick which I used today for the first time. 

I’m happy to say that the formula is very creamy which is always a good thing when it comes to lipstick, and I also like the matte finish that it leaves on the lips. The shade however is just not for me. 


Here’s the thing: when I first applied it, I didn’t like it at all. I wish I was cool enough to pull off a grey toned lip but I’m really not! Though it did start to grow on me a little throughout the day, I don’t think it will become a regular wear for me, but it was fun to try something a little out of my comfort zone.


 The fact that I didn’t like the shade kind of made it hard for me to decide what I really think about the formula too. Overall it wears well, the pigment isn’t bad, and it’s non-drying. But did I love it?  Did I even like it? Well, I suppose I lind of liked it, but that’s where it ends for me.


I think to really judge it properly I’m going to have to try it again in a much warmer toned shade so I can give it a fair chance so the jury is still out on this one for now. But, it’s nice to do something different every one in a while and I’m glad I did that today!
