Bonjour friends! Had a fantastic week so far? We sure hope so! We also hope you had a chance to check out last week’s blog post on Pantene’s Moisture Mist. If you haven’t already, check it out! It’s one of our favourite hair products and it’s a drugstore item, readily available – what are you waiting for? 😉
This week we’ll be kickin’ it back to an oldie but a goodie… ready for some lip swatches?
You can find up to 34 different shades in the Butter Lipsticks range from Nyx . It’s supposed to deliver highly saturated colour that gives you a full-yet-lightweight coverage with a satin finish. It retails for $6USD/$8.99CAD.
We first discovered this range at London Drugs before the brand exploded to what it is now. The Nyx displays are significantly larger than most of the brands at the drugstore. A full blown Nyx-only cosmetic store just opened up in our city!? This brand has really taken off and for good reason. These Butter Lipsticks were a stepping stone for us and has inspired many other purchases from Nyx (future reviews 😉 ).When we first bought these lippies, it came in a set of three and as you all know why buy one when you can get three for a lower price 😛 Needless to say, we bought more after trying a set.
This is definitely a good lipstick at the drugstore; there is a good selection of colours and it is very pigmented and creamy. There is a subtle scent which we think kind of smells like a slightly sweet crayon, but it is not overpowering at all and after application it isn’t noticeable. In terms of the packaging, we love that it’s colour coordinated, so it makes it easy to spot and choose one within our collection of lip products.
As this is a cream lipstick it is not very long lasting and transfers easily. This is the main reason why we prefer some higher end brands, however for it’s price it is a good lipstick in our opinion.
Boardwalk – previously known as Snow Cap; beige with pink undertone
West Coast – previously known as Candy Buttons; peachy pink
Snowcone – previously known as Taffy; fuscia
Moonlit Night – previously known as Licorice; deep burgundy
Let us know if you give these lippies a try and share with us which shades are your favourite. We didn’t get to post a wishlist last week, but for this week Katelyn will share a few extra things on her shopping wish list (soon to be in her credit card statement 😛 ).
