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 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.

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?
