NYX Butter Lipstick comes in 22 shades and is supposed to offer intense color payoff while feeling lightweight and comfortable. The whole bullet is made of plastic and feels lightweight but sturdy. The lipstick twists up smoothly and the cap stays on securely. The outside of the bullets are supposed to represent the color inside. There is a label on the bottom of the lipstick with the name of the color inside. These cost $6.00 for 0.16 oz. / 4.5 g and can be found at NYX and Ulta
Fireball is described as a “deep coral”. I find that it is a very vibrant coral that can almost look red if applied heavily. It has a very soft balm-like sheen and has no glitter or shimmer in it. It is highly pigmented but slightly sheer and doesn’t leave a stain on my lips. I get a lot of color with just one swipe but I need to go over it once more to make sure the color is perfectly even. It has a very lightweight feel and glides on easily. Even if I make several passes over my lips to build up the color it still feels lightweight. Despite the name “butter lipstick”, I wouldn’t say the formula is hydrating but I don’t find it drying either. I wore this a few times when I had chapped lips and felt that it emphasized the dryness and didn’t last as long. There is a very light fragrance but it’s hard to tell exactly what it’s supposed to smell like. I get hints of caramel and spice – maybe cinnamon. The fragrance is incredibly light, though. This wears about 3-4 hours on me, depending on how hydrated or dry my lips are. The drier my lips are, the shorter this wears. I didn’t have any issues with this bleeding outside my lips lines.
I’m really happy with this lipstick and plan on buying some more colors. If you are familiar with NYX Round Case Lipsticks and like them, I have a feeling you will love these. They have some quirks – they don’t last an incredibly long time but they do last long enough. They also don’t sit well on dehydrated lips. Other than that, they have excellent color payoff, feel lightweight and comfortable to wear, come in tons of colors and only cost about $6.
