A few months ago I posted a review with swatches on four of the new NYX Butter Lipsticks in Razzle, Hot Tamale, Big Cherry and Pops. Since I loved them so much, I decided to pick up a few more and placed an order on NYX’s website for Fizzies, Cotton Candy, Hubba Bubba, Hunk and Bit of Honey. After using these the last couple of months, I decided I would do some swatches in case anyone was interested in the shades I purchased… especially since when I ordered them, I expected them to be a bit different then how they arrived. Some of the shades were much lighter and darker than I had expected.
The butter lipsticks retail for $6.00 on NYX’s website and come in 22 shades. Just like I stated in my first review, the NYX Butter Lipsticks feel great on the lips and are moisturizing. But I think some of these shades feel a bit different on the lips and when it comes to coverage, the lighter shades seem to sink into the lines of my lips unlike the original four colors I tried out.
In the swatch photo above, you can see that Hubba Bubba has a slight frost to it – since it does have a light amount of shimmer in the lipstick. Because of this, I was a little disappointed at how my lips looked when I used this shade and I do not use it often. On the website – Cotton Candy and Hubba Bubba lend for a more wearable shade so I was surprised to see it so Barbie Pink when they arrived. I do like Fizzies, though it is not a shade I will use often – it does match my skin tone and Hunk and Bit of Honey are also ones I enjoy too.
Have you tried the NYX Butter lipsticks? While I do love some of these new ones I received, I think the only favorites out of this bunch would be Hunk and Fizzies. The others just seem too white for me to wear on its own… but hey, that is what gloss and liner is for. I’ll still find a way to make it work.

If you tried any of these lipsticks and have favorites – please comment below and let me know, I would love to check them out and see if they will match me.
Have a wonderful week!
