NYX Hunk Butter Lipstick Review

The universe can be so cruel yet so sweet! There have been so many lipsticks that I thought about skipping but ended up falling in love with. I considered getting Hunk at first but I decided on Razzle and Sweet Tart instead. If I could rewind the hands of time I would have added Hunk too!

Hunk is a warm, mid-tone purple with slight red undertones and a faint sweet smell. I thought I would have a few dupes but it looks like Wet n Wild Ferguson Crest Cabernet and Urban Decay Venom are the only shades that come close. Both are slightly darker with stronger red undertones but pretty comparable to Hunk.

Hunk has a thin, creamy texture that’s pretty moisturizing and dry lips friendly. It applies very smoothly and evenly with semi-opaque coverage and a glossy sheen. Hunk is very easy to sheer out or build up for more intensity. I think it would work well for both the soft wash of color and bold lip gals. Upon application, Hunk feels more like a gloss but it sets into a soft satin finish within a couple of hours. The lipstick wears away completely around 3 hours but it leaves behind a beautiful stain that lasts all day plus leaves the lips feeling soft. The formula does tend to move around a bit though. You know, because it’s so creamy. A good lip liner definitely solves the problem though! If you’re into creamy berry lipsticks then Hunk is definitely right up your alley!
