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!
