Simply Lippy Challenge Day 324 | NYX Butter Lipstick in Shade BLS02, Sweet Tart

Of all the NYX lipsticks that I’ve tried over the past year, their Butter Lipsticks are one of my favorites. I first tried one of the shades from this range back in June in a lovely pink rose shade, Staycation, and have tried several other shades since, all of which I’ve really liked.

Today’s shade is a very pink shade, and not my favorite compared to the others. I actually expected it to be more raspberry than it is, but aside from that, the formula is as good as ever and feels so nice on the lips.

The formula of these lipsticks is very creamy, and it has a lovely smooth texture that makes it very easy to apply. The consistency isn’t too thick or thin, and because of that it blends well without dragging or pulling any of the colour.

The finish is a satin gloss, and as I’m sure many of you know, that’s not my usual preference when it comes to a lippy finish. However, the creamy element makes up for that, which is why I like these so much.

The pigment and colour pay off are good, but as the finish is slightly sheer, it’s not as good as what you’d find in a matte or cream finish formula.

Though I like this formula, it’s not my favourite shade, and I definitely prefer others that I’ve tried previously. But if you’re a fan of pink lippies then it might be for you!

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 314 | NYX Butter Lipstick in Shade BLS30, Tan Lines

Of all the lipstick ranges that NYX have, the Butter Lipstick range quickly became my favourite of the brand this year. I’d never tried any NYX lipsticks before my challenge, but I’m so glad I’ve discovered them as the majority of them are very nice to wear.

The butter lipsticks are incredibly creamy, and today’s shade is a rich caramel shade. I was heading out tonight and went for a dramatic bronze smokey eye look, and therefore wanted to pair it with an earthy, warm tone lipstick. And this was the perfect accompaniment.

The pigment is rich with good colour pay off, and though the shade isn’t particularly dark, it has a lovely tone to it. The creamy texture makes it very easy to blend, and the finish is lovely and smooth too.


The finish is what I would describe as a satin gloss; there is a slight shine to it when you apply it but it isn’t sheer which is one of the things I like most about it.


Because of the finish, the staying power isn’t amazing. It will last a while on the lips, but after eating or drinking you do need to reapply it. Having said that, it’s much better than some other satin finish lipsticks and it feels lovely and smooth to wear too.


The shade is so versatile as it’s perfect for either a day or night time look, and I can see this being a go-to for me over and over again in the future.

Have you tried NYX lippies? If so, what’s your favorite? Send on some recommendations that I can add to my list!

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 197 | NYX Butter Lipstick in Shade BLS21, Staycation

Over recent years NYX is a brand that has really grown on me. I use their vinyl liquid eyeliner all the time, and many of their lipsticks and glosses that I’ve tried throughout the challenge so far, have been lovely. I think today however, I have discovered my new favourite product from the brand; butter lipstick.


I’ve tried several of their butter glosses over the past few months, and really liked the vinyl non-sticky finish, so I was intrigued to see whether I would like the butter lipstick as much. And not only do I like it as much, I think I like it more!


The formula is extremely creamy without being to thick or thin in consistency, and is super smooth which allows for a gorgeous, even application. I just love how this felt on my lips all day, it has a luxurious feel that really is ‘buttery’ and my lips felt so soft throughout.


The pigment is also gorgeous with great colour pay off; this shade is a deep rose pink shade with a slightly creamy gloss finish and sometimes as you know glossier finishes can be sheer, but this wasn’t sheer at all and was very true to the packaging shade.


The staying power was also good, not quite as good as a matte but still very good, and I didn’t have to reapply too much during the day. 


I definitely will be wearing this again, amd buying more shades to try out over the next while!
