NYX Xtreme Lip Cream for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review

NYX Xtreme Lip Cream

NYX has some new lip products for spring 2012 that come in eleven colors and they’re called Xtreme Lip Cream.

These are a combination lipstick and lip gloss. They are thick with good coverage like a lipstick, yet come in a tube with a lip gloss-like wand. Shiny also!

Natural, Nude Peach Fuzz, Buttery Nude, Dolly Girl, Spicy

Natural is a pale pink/nude color. This one actually looks a little pale and mod on my skintone. I like it better on my hand than on my lips.

Nude Peach Fuzz is a medium pink nude color. Very nice, like this one more than Natural for me.

Buttery Nude is a great medium pink/coral/brown color. Hard to describe. Looks a lot better on my lips than I expected from the hand swatch and in the tube.

Dolly Girl is a bright flamingo pink. Gorgeous!

Spicy is a classic blue-based red. Very pretty.

NYX Xtreme Lip Cream Spicy

As you can see you get pretty good pigmentation with these. The more pale shades do leave some streak marks, which I don’t love, but not that big a deal.

The one thing I don’t love about them, but doesn’t bother me enough to not use them, is the plactic-y scent and taste. Just a fore-warning.

They last a really long time, about 4 hours before I feel the need to touch-up, and are fairly comfortable on my lips as well.

Availability: NYX, Cherry Culture.

Pricing: $6.00.

Are any of these colors calling your name?

    Dolly Girl is my favourite on you! (Spicy would be my second favourite on you.) :) Wow, they have great pigmentation, and I like how they’re also shiny.

      Hi Swatch and Learn,

      Yes those are my favs also. They have super great pigmentation!

      • January 19, 2012

        I just love every red lipstick swatch on you, you were just made to rock the red lips :)

          Hi Ariana,

          Thank you!

  • January 19, 2012

    Dolly girl and Spicy are so pretty! The plastic scent and taste is a turn off tho I’ve noticed that with a few of their products wish they would fix it.

    • January 19, 2012

      Hi Ashley,

      I wish they would get rid of it also.

  • January 19, 2012

    I’m really liking that Nude Peach Fuzz. I like NYX’s soft matte lip creams but these look better cause they stay glossy.

    • January 19, 2012

      Hi Amanda,

      Yes I prefer a little gloss also rather than flat matte. I always feel like mattes make me look chalky, even when they aren’t!

  • January 19, 2012

    Hi Maria,

    They are very similar actually. Yes these are shinier like a gloss and those are flatter in finish.

  • January 19, 2012

    Buttery nude is definitely calling my name! These are mega pigmented and opaque!

      Hi Sunny,

      Very much so! Buttery Nude is really a great medium color.

  • January 19, 2012

    I really liked the matte lip creams as a product, but matte just doesn’t look right on me. I’m glad they finally made some in a glossier formula. I’ll have to make a trip to Ulta to pick a few up.

    I’m liking buttery nude for me. I have medium skin tone, and anything much lighter gives me corpse lips. I don’t know why some medium/dark skin toned girls can rock the light shades but I can’t.

    • January 19, 2012

      Hi Donna,

      Yep, I prefer shinier to matte any day of the week. Pale white/pinks on me can look super 1960’s mod, more often than not. Kinda cool if you WANT that look, haha.

  • January 19, 2012

    OH wow these look gorgeous!!

      Hi Cosmetics Afocianado,

      Glad you like them!

  • January 19, 2012

    I can’t wait until these arrive here to Spain to try them!
    After a few hours of wearing them, do your lips feel dry? I love the Soft matte lip creams but I can’t wear them on winter because of the cold weather.
    I hope the scent isn’t too strong because that would definitely be off putting for me.

    • January 19, 2012

      Hi Nesita,

      They actually don’t dry my lips out, which is amazing to me because so many products do. It’s weird because after 3-4 hours they feel like they would be dry but when I touch my lips and look at them they’re still moisturized.

      • January 19, 2012

        Thanks for your answer, now I’m ever more excited to try them! Haha

  • January 19, 2012

    I’m loving that nude peach fuzz and buttery nude! Do you think they moisturize your lips? I have chapped lips and need something that will both hydrate and have a nice color to them. Any recommendations? Thanks so much!

      Hi Jessica,

      I wouldn’t say they moisturize per se (like a balm would), but for me (I also have dry lips) they didn’t dry mine out more, even after hours of wearing them. If you do have issues with that thought you could use a light layer of a balm underneath.

  • January 19, 2012

    I Love buttery nude! But they´re all super pretty for different styles… hope the scent is not impossible to stand, I´m a little sensitive with smell/taste

    • January 19, 2012

      Hi Mara,

      It’s not overpowering but it’s definitely there. It does mostly dissipate after a bit.

  • January 19, 2012

    spicy is gorgeous! ~adds to wishlist~

    These look wonderful. They remind me of some product from Laura Geller & Bare Minerals. Love these shades except for the first one. Too nude for me. I guess most cosmetic lines have a product like this. Will have to try these.

  • January 19, 2012

    Ooh interesting! Were they trying to go for like a Chanel Rouge Allure Laque-type of product? Or more of a MAC Kissable Lipcolor? Either way I really want to try Natural and Spicy! Excellent lip swatches. Thank you!

      That’s exactly what I was thinking when I saw the red… I’m going to always look for a dupe of Chanel Dragon. :) Hopefully it won’t be a never-ending search. There is another red, I think it’s called Absolute Red, and it’s darker than Spicy.

  • January 19, 2012

    Dolly Girl looks great! Spicy is my favorite on you though – fab with your skin.

    Ooooh I will definitely check this out when I go to Ulta this weekend! I just picked up one of their soft matte lip creams in Antwerp and really liked it, but I like the glossy look a bit better. I noticed the matte lip cream has a vanilla-y scent that I REALLY like, I wish these had that same scent!

    Do they smell like the matte lip creams or worse? I kinda like the smell of those.

    Hi, I really like those creams and I would like to test something pale but my lips are a little red, did you pun any foundation or concealer under them to hide natural color?

  • January 20, 2012

    I totally love how buttery nude looks on your lips!! None called my attention when I saw them on the tube but after you swathced I want them all! :)

  • January 20, 2012

    I think I’m likin’ “Dolly Girl” :)

  • January 22, 2012

    Buttery Nude looks ah-maze-balls! I think I shall check them out at stores that sell NYX locally and hope they have samples out before I buy!

    Thanks for the swatches :)

    I kind of like the scent of the Soft Matte Lip Cream, that cheap smell of caramel/vanilla. I guess they do their best considering the price. I can bare it. I heard these smelled like butter and plastic, but I can put up with anything as long as it doesn’t smell herbal.
