NYX Xtreme Lip Creams


Xtreme1 NYX Xtreme Lip Creams

Long-lasting lip products are a godsend for me. I am one of those people who simply cannot be arsed to reapply stuff throughout the day (unless it’s between work and going straight out of course). I need stuff that lasts through countless cups of tea, lunch and smoke breaks without bleeding or fading in patches or worse, disappearing altogether. NYX’s Xtreme Lip Creams fit the bill!

I bought my first one of these, Nude Peach Fuzz, at IMATS earlier this year. I loved it so much that I asked my New Jersey friend Danielle to bring a couple more over for me when she came to London a couple of months ago so now I have 3. I’m not that interested in the other shades on offer which is a shame because I really do love this formula.

L-R Nude Peach Fuzz, Pinky Nude, Dolly Girl – these swatches are colour accurate unlike the product shot above!

Originally I thought they’d be akin to the Collection Cream Puff matte lip colours, but they’re not. NYX also do Soft Matte Lip creams, which I guess would be just like the Collection ones but these Xtreme ones definitely retain a shinier finish, turning into more of a satin after a couple of hours. They aren’t drying in the slightest, although I do like to apply them over a lip balm (that’s had a good 10 minutes to sink in first) as they do tend to show up any nasty dry patches on the lips.

Despite being highly pigmented (and I mean highly, these have a level of pigment not dissimilar to OCC Lip Tars and Sleek Pout Paints with the added bonus that they don’t separate and become oily over time), these are foolproof to apply. Normally with a highly pigmented lip colour I would use a lip brush, but something about these makes them so easy to work with that you can do it accurately with the doefoot applicator. No need for a lipliner if you don’t want to, as these don’t bleed at all. In terms of wear, I normally get 6 hours or so out of them which is amazing.

    These sound great, I love the Peach Fuzz shade. I’m so annoyed that I forgot to look at NYX when I was in the US recently. x

      They are really lovely colours, I think there’s 3 or 4 more in the range but I don’t love the look of the others which is a shame

    I love the look of these, I wish I knew about them before IMATS, will have to try and get hold of them somehow xx

      You can get them off the NYX UK website for around £5 I think :)

      Lyds, I believe Jennie is right but it’s a lot cheaper to but them from the US if there’s any other US stuff you’re after to make it worthwhile! x

    ive only recently tried their soft matte lip creams. very lovely :D

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/15110959456221326131 Leanne

      I haven’t tried the matte ones, but matte lip products really tend to dry my lips out so I try to avoid them!
