NYX Xtreme Lip Cream Skin Tone - Swatch and Review




Hello Beautifuls,

I wanted to go to Macy's today to check out the new MAC collection Archie's Girl and Lancome. Currently, Lancome has a gift with purchase promo going at Macy's so that's something to consider if you've been waiting on a promo to try out new products. Well, I didn't get to go because we're getting hit with a snow storm and it's pretty slushy and slippery so I did not want to take the risk. As much as I love makeup, I'm not willing to drive through a snow storm for it, lol...Aren't you glad I'm not that crazy?
 
Anyhow...Here's a review of the NYX Extreme Lip Cream I picked up last week from Ulta.

NYX describes these as:

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. Complete your head-turning look with the Xtreme Lip Cream in any of the 11 luscious colors.





Packaging
  • Comes in a lipgloss looking tube and doe foot applicator
  • The color on the tube is the color of the gloss
  • .23 oz or 7mL




  • Skin Tone is a warm peachy brown kind of shade. It's very glossy but doesn't have shimmers.





Product
  • The gloss is a bit thick and super saturated with pigment. However it does not feel sticky. 
  • You get the coverage of a lipstick and the glossy shine of a gloss all in one
  • There's a bit of staining with this shade, however not that noticeable since it's kinda of a neutral color. 
  • My lips are dryer and flakier in the winter time so this doesn't really help but enhance it. 
  • Last about 4-5 hours.
  • It has a pretty strong sweet and waxy smell and taste to it that I dislike. Similar to that of the Maybelline ColorSensational lipsticks. If you can handle those then you wouldn't have a problem with these.
Final Thought
The color payoff and pigmentation is indeed intense. Definitely feels like a liquid lipstick and gloss. Last fairly well and you probably might get better staining with other shade but this one is very similar to your skin tone. I didn't find it particularly hydrating or drying but I'm really turned off by the scent. I think the formula is a bit too thick for my liking as well. I guess it's a product some people will like or dislike depending on their preference. For me, I don't really like it but it does what it claims to do.

My rating: 9/10.

Have you tried these? What are your thoughts on them?

    2. Just letting you know that the matte lip creams don't have the same scent. They smell good to me and have heard someone else describe it like a butter cream, which I agree with. I really love the color San Paulo in the matte lip creams, but these do tend to show lines more. If you haven't checked these out already, if you put a lip balm under it, the lines won't show BUT this will cause the color not to stay as long. I still love them and plan to get more.
