Hey all beauty geeks!!! When your makeup collection starts increasing manifolds, there is a huge chance that the colors might get repeated. It happens a lot with simpler colors like pinks, reds, blues, browns, etc. Specially with lipsticks, I might have very similar shades in reds and pinks. But one color that has stood apart till date and never bored me is the coral color. In spite of having numerous coral lipsticks, I really do not have similarity in them because of unique blends of orange, pink and red. Today I am going to review another coral lipstick – NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball. And again the credit for this goes to dear Anamika who let me review this lipstick for you guys.

My take on NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball:
NYX Butter Lipstick comes in 22 beautiful shades. We have already swatched 12 shades for you all. NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball is mentioned as a ‘deep coral’ by NYX. I feel it is a deep coral bordering towards warm red. This color can look different on different people and esp. in different lightings. This shade is an awesome pick for people who hesitate wearing red or bright orange on their lips. The color definitely has muted warm red undertones. Looks really chic with a simple eye makeup and a warm coral blush.
Texture: NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball surprised me with the texture. It is not as creamy as NYX describes it, however, it is really hydrating and thin. Something like a colored lip balm. It does not feather at all. It does transfers to glasses, etc. Really feels wonderful on the lips and glides effortlessly during the application. The lipstick settles into a dewy satin finish.
Pigmentation: NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball falls short of opaque pigmentation. The lipstick has a sheer pigmentation, which is buildable. I have lightly pigmented lips and it was able to cover my lip color. But it may be difficult for heavily pigmented lips to get the desired color.
Staying Power: The lip stick lasts for 5-6 hours without any meals. However, it won’t survive a meal and may start fading.
Packaging: NYX Butter Lipsticks are packaged like candies. The lipsticks come in tubes which are color-coordinated with the bullet of the lipstick. It has a transparent section in the middle of the tube.
What I love about NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball:
- A beautiful shade of deep warm coral.
- Perfect for all seasons.
- Thin and lightweight texture.
- Glides easily.
- Does not feather or bleed.
- Will suit all the skin tones.
- Good staying power.
- Very hydrating to the lips.
- Colorful and attractive packaging.
What I do not love about NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball:
- Sheer pigmentation.
- Transfers easily.
- May not cover heavy pigmented lips.
- Unavailability in India.
Final Impression: NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball is a very flattering shade of reddish coral for all skintones. Amazing texture that is God sent to people with dry lips. Even though it is not heavily pigmented, you can always get an intense color by couple of more swipes. Perfect for people who layer their lipsticks with glosses as it gives a slight glossy finish without a gloss. Definitely recommended!!!
