NYX Butter Lipstick
My favourite makeup items are lipsticks and lip glosses. I don't mind leaving the house without eye makeup but I always need to have a lippie on. So I was very interested to try the new NYX Butter Lipsticks.
There are 22 colours in the NYX Butter Lipstick range including nudes, pinks, corals, reds and purples, offering full coverage high impact pops of colour for lips. Unfortunately I don't have a full set of these butter lipsticks to photograph and swatch for you, although I will definitely be buying quite a few of them when I see them hit the shelves in Australia. However I did find these photos on the internet of the entire colour range.
The hottest NYX Butter Lipstick colour in the US is Licorice, a stunning deep burgundy colour. Elizabeth was the lucky BH member to have this shade applied to her lips by Dean Nixon in the masterclass. One of Dean's tips was to use a concealer brush instead of a lip brush to apply the lipstick, as it is a longer and flatter brush and gives a more effective, cleaner looking result.
I was lucky to receive the Taffy colour Butter Lipstick, a beautiful pink mauve colour with great pigmentation. It felt hydrating, creamy and comfortable to wear. It was non sticky and had a satin like finish. It actually seemed to melt onto my lips like butter, so calling this range "Butter Lipsticks" is very apt.
I like the NYX Butter Lipsticks' packaging. Although it isn't luxe packaging it is highly practical, cute packaging. The outer tube is colour coded the same shade as the lipstick it contains which makes finding the shade you're after quick and easy. You can also see the lipstick colour through the side of the tube.
NYX Lip Primer
Another of Dean's lip tips included exfoliating your lips regularly with a soft baby toothbrush and applying shea butter. He also recommended applying a lip primer under your lip products to help them apply more evenly and last longer.
I applied this new NYX Cosmetics lip primer under my Butter Lipstick to help the lipstick last longer. I found this lip primer to be smooth and easy to apply.
NYX Colour Mascara
Finally, another exciting new product NYX Cosmetics showed us is the coloured mascara range they're introducing to Australia. This includes blue, brown, and my favourite purple mascara. Believe me when I say I felt way too happy to discover the purple mascara in my goodie bag! It's a fabulous and fun return to the 80s! Yes, I admit, I'm old enough to remember the 80s first hand! But I promise not to bring out the disco ball from storage ........ or maybe I could show my kids a disco move or two!!!!!! Haha!
This purple mascara added a fun yet subtle pop of colour to my lashes, which are naturally quite dark. I needed to put on several coats but was happy with the end result. I'll probably buy the blue mascara as well when I see it in the shops. It will be a bit of fun for summer.
