So buttery and so moisturizing. These bulleted butters have lasted mostly all day for me with a little amount of fading. Adding The Body Shop’s Mango Lip Butter made these lipsticks look and feel so good after my break ended. That, and reapplying if I didn’t want to use the lip butter. Either way, this lipstick gave me options!
Originally, I had purchased Licorice, Moonlit Night, and Thunderstorm. These I kept among the ones I purchased later to try.
Today, I added two more shades into my collection and plan on adding more soon because Ulta is having a sale on Nyx lip products! Both in store and online, Nyx’s Butter Lipsticks are sold for $3.99. That’s half the price! Also, Nyx’s other products, I believe, are included in this sale.

The first new addition to my 5 lipsticks from Nyx’s Butter Lipstick collection- Lifeguard. A beautiful dark red shade. This and Mary Jane were my favorite I tried today. I didn’t realize they were on sale until I saw the cashier ring them up. Otherwise, I’d have purchased a few more shades.
Next addition- Ripe Berry. I thought this would be more pigmented or darker for some reason. But it looked more nude on me. Can’t complain though as I like this as a nude color on me. I don’t have many nudes and I rarely like nude shades. I wonder if it looks darker on other skin tones?
Thunderstorm! Though, thunderstorms are often not fancied, this beautiful shade is gorgeous on the lips. I love this shade and it was one of the three I first purchased. For me, this is as dark as it gets and I’m quite happy with that because it doesn’t overwhelm me or worry me if it’s work appropriate or too much. I love this color!
Moonlit Night (a.k.a. Licorice)- I have two of these considering one store sold it as Licorice and another as Moonlit Night. Didn’t realize they were the exact same shade at that time (face palm!). This shade isn’t one I’d wear often. I love the color and would have used it more daily back when I was into the dark, bolds. Now, I feel this shade is too much on me. I used to not be able to wear any light colors, only dark. Amazing how things can change. Now, after used to of lighter and more different, vibrant colors- thunderstorm from Nyx, Rose Pop and Pow from Clinique, I can no longer see myself in that dark shade.
I love these Butter Lipsticks! They are my favorite drugstore brand lipsticks. They feel buttery and moisturizing. There’s a variety of shades to pick from. Therefore, there’s a shade for everyone! It last most of the day. You can reapply or add a nice lip butter or balm over the nice slightly faded stained lips.
Paired with Smashbox’s gel Mattifier, you can transform this Buttery texture from a creamy/buttery to a Mattified finish. See example below with Nyx’s Lifeguard.
