Review: NYX Xtreme Lip Cream

More than a week ago, I ordered some stuffs from Skye Avenue. [ haul HERE ]
And Ate Dee, the owner, was super nice to give me a few items to review. She gave me this NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Nude Peach Fuzz. I haven't tried this yet but the SMLC I have. And I loved it. So, I was super excited when I got this. 

For those of you who haven't heard about NYX. It is a drugstore cosmetic brand from the US that carries lipsticks, blushes up to eye shadows. They have almost every kind of makeup. I am not sure if we have NYX stores locally, but you won't have a hard time finding their products because they are all over the internet. This brand, I think, is one of the MOST famous cosmetic brand that a LOT of online shops sell nowadays. 

Anyways,the product look like this. It looks like a teeny tiny lip gloss, huh?! :) 


"Beautify your lips with this velvety rich lip cream that provides extreme pigmentation with a silky and glossy finish. This lip cream is a hybrid of lipstick, lip gloss and lip stain with intense pigmentation all in one. "
It's not a gloss, nor a lipstick. I like it! :) 

The packaging looks cute and chic. I love how it perfectly fits my purse or the pockets of my bag. It can even fit inside the pocket of my jeans. Its super cute! :) 

And just like any other lip gloss, it comes with the sponge tip applicator. 



I got the shade NUDE PEACH FUZZ. And I think it really is true to its name! Its has a great color pay off. 



Here is a little hand swatch. But if you want to see me wearing it, check my EOTD that I posted yesterday. [ click HERE ] . 


I like it, but I don't love it. Lemme show you the PROS and CONS. :)

PROS.
* The consistency is thick. BUT it doesn't feel thick when you apply it. And I LOVE that about this product. ♥
* It isn't TOO glossy or shiny. It just have the perfect amount of shine. ♥
* It has a great pigmentation! ♥
* It is super cute. It fits my purse perfectly. It is small enough to even fit in my pocket. ♥
* It isn't drying. Well, I wear my Carmex lipbalm before I apply it though. 
* It makes my lips look fuller and thicker... and plumper. [ I like it.. but I don't sometimes. :P ]
* It is affordable. ♥ 

CONS
* It has this weird scent. It reminds me of the clay that I love to play with when I was a kid. hehe
* It doesn't compliment my morena skin because I think I look darker every time I wear it. 
* It doesn't really last that long. After 2-3 hours, it's gone. 

Will I recommend?
Yes. It isn't a must have though. But it is a great addition in mine and your makeup stash as well. :) If you don't like it super shiny or super matte, this is perfect for you! 

Will I repurchase?
Yes. But not the same shade. I would love to try the pink and red ones. 

You can buy this product or other NYX products from Skye Avenue. I highly recommend the shop! Ate Dee is super nice. :)

I like it, but I don't love it. I hated didn't like it during the first few times I used it, but I am starting to appreciate it more now. :) 
I would love to try some other shades, though. I think it's just the shade that I don't like that much. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this short review. *short ba?! hehe
MWAH MWAH! ♥

  7. Sis, anong mas okay? Yung matte lipstick or ito?

  8. I think these are more pigmented than the matte lip creams... but I like the matte ones. :P . Medyo biased kasi ako kasi I love matte eh hehe.

  9. Problema ko kasi sa matte, lalo nagddry yung lips ko, nakikita lalo yung lines sa lips ko. And pale, kaya hindi ko alam kung anong uunahin kong lip problem. :D

  10. For dry lips try Carmex! I swear by that product! It does an amazing job on me! :) And also, exfoliate your lips every now and then. Brush it gently with your toothbrush, kasi thats what I do everyday. And also I use a homemade kind of lip scrub. :) I wanted nga to share it but I just found naman online din. :D

    ReplyDelete
  11. I can't find Carmex na nasa lipbalm package. Ayoko kasi nung nasa tube and pot. Hehe. :)) I'm doing that too pero meron pa rin maiiwan sa sides ng lips. Will try to search for lip scrub DIYs sa Google :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. favorite ko yun nasa tube. :D hehe. oooh... yes there are a lot! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. yun carmex... i dont think parang gloss.. it feels like the one in the tube works better kasi its thicker in consistency.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I can't imagine. Haha. Usually kasi yung nasa tubes, lip gloss. :)) I'd better buy para di na macurious :)
