Parfait - NYX Butter Lip Balm

NYX Butter Lip Balm is a range of tinted balm with very inviting color selection and fruity scent. I picked up a bright pink back in October (I suppose sheer red and orange are nice but I have too many of them already). The balm retails for 4 dollars a piece and comes with a simple twist up packaging. If I remember correctly, they are made in China.

NYX butter balm has a distinctly different texture (compared to Revlon Lip Butter or other more slippery balms that gives gloss and slip). It looks hard and sorbet like in the tube, with a bit of swipe, an even layer of semi-opaque color is deposited onto the lips. Even though it's neither slippery or thin, I think it does contain quite a bit of waxy filler that gives an interesting glowy matte effect.
Revlon Sorbet, Sweet Tart and Parfait (They first two definitely have a smoother and richer formula)

Under direct sun so you can see the waxy glare (kind of luminous matte finish). The formula is comfortable but not particular moisturizing for me, after 2 or 3 hours of wear it does dry down to a mildy sticky waxy layer of color. 

Overall: It doesn't wear as well as Revlon Lip Butter but I think there are still some redeeming qualities (smell, color and price).
