This or That: NYX Butter Lipstick vs Essence Lipstick

Each week in January, I'm comparing two similar beauty products. 
I call it This or That
Enjoy & let me know what you'd like to see compared!

This week's edition should be called This, That, That, or That. While I'm comparing two similar lipsticks, NYX Butter Lipstick and Essense Look At Me Lipstick, I'll be throwing in some additional similar lipsticks. Check 'em out:

NYX Butter Lipstick is a newer product that I had to try. I really liked this wearable mauve (it's more of a wearable nude on me) shade in Pops.
  • "The unique texture seems to melt onto the lips, giving full, yet lightweight coverage with a luxurious satin finish"--via website.
  • $6
  • 27 shades
  • Not a fan of packaging, but it does make it easy to tell the shade.
  • Not sticky
  • Nice pigmentation
  • Not "buttery" at all

I had to compare the NYX with a similar lipstick in my collection, Essence Lipstick in Glamour Queen.
  • "Essence Lipstick has a smooth texture and extra glossy shine. The modern and personalized color-matched packaging makes finding your favorite shade as easy as 1-2-3!"--via website
  • $2.99
  • 7 shades
  • Not a fan of packaging, but it does make it easy to tell the shade.
  • Nice pigmentation
  • Not sticky
  • Very moisturizing
  • Both had similar packaging and were similar in shade, but that's where the similarities ended.
  • I was surprised the find that Essence was much more moisturizing and shiny, even though it was not advertised as having a "butter" consistency. And it's half the price!
  • I compared the NYX to Revlon Lipbutters and Maybelline Color Whispers, since the latter two are very similar. The NYX Butter Lipstick was no where near as creamy and moisturizing as those. Essence is not a dupe for those, but it is very moisturizing.
  • If you're looking for a "butter" lipstick, skip NYX. Try Revlon, Maybelline, Essence, or NYX Butter Balms or Glosses instead.
To thank you for supporting my blog, I have two giveaways I'd love for you to enter:
