NYX Butter Lipstick in Hunk

I bought this lipstick the same day I bought the e.l.f Prism palette.

The Butter lipsticks are named as such because they are supposed to be intensely moisturizing.

I think this one is.

It’s a berry purple color.

Pigmentation is lacking. The color can be built up but it does fade after 2 hours. It’s a beautiful shade and plenty hydrating, but the lack of pigmentation and staying power means it won’t live in my collection for much longer.

I think if you want a sheer color with lots of moisture, this is fine. For others, try something else.

  1. I dont mind formulas like this for work. My lips get very dry in the air conditioning and I usually wear heavier eyes throughout the day anyway. But in general I prefer opaque formulas as well.
