NYX Butter Lip Balm

RATING (out of 5 stars): 1.5 stars

COST: $4

THE SKINNY: NYX Butter Lip Balm went from my Ipsy bag straight into the trash. When it comes to moisturizing, especially in winter weather, not much beats Carmex. Definitely not this product, which is a little gritty and didn't last for more than 10 minutes on my lips.

The second problem was the color. Ipsy sent me a neutral brown called "marshmallow." It went on almost white and made me look like death.

There are a lot of Carmex-like products on the market that deliver moisture, lip protection and color. This is one of the worst ones I've tried.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss

CHECK IT OUT: NYX Butter Lip Balm comes in eight colors. Avoid marshmallow.
