For me, summer is all about the beach, cold drinks, long walks, late nights, endless ice cream and bright colours. Summer is so vibrant with all the flowers and bright clothes, so why not extend this trend to your lips? This season I have been on the hunt for the perfect orange lipstick. Having never dabbled in the world of orange lips before, I didn’t exactly know what I was looking for, except that I wanted it to be BRIGHT!
Enter Nyx Butter Lipstick in the shade Hot Tamale. One swatch of this in the drugstore was all I needed before I knew this baby was the answer to my orange lipstick needs 😉
So how does the Nyx Butter Lipstick Hot Tamale stack up?
Since the primary reason for writing this post was that this is the perfect orange summer lipstick, it seems only right to start by talking about the colour. This lipstick is BRIGHT! It has a slight reddish tint to it, but it still looks like a true orange, in my opinion. Although it is a bold colour, I think it’s perfect for an everyday look. What a great way to add a pop of colour into your look! I personally love orange and blue together, so I like to wear this lipstick when I’m wearing something blue. In the photo above I’m wearing a blue dress with pink, peach and green flowers on it, and I think it goes perfectly.
This lipstick is called butter for a reason! It is so creamy and smooth, and feels amazing on the lips. It is very comfortable to wear and does not dry out the lips at all. In terms of staying power, remember this is a drugstore lipstick. It is not transfer proof at all which is unfortunate, and you will have to reapply after eating.If you are on the hunt for a new lipstick this summer, I highly recommend Hot Tamale! I have been very impressed with it so far, and now I want to check out other colours in the Nyx Butter Lipstick line. Any recommendations on which one I should test out next?
