NYX Xtreme Lip Cream Review

Hello lovelies!

A while ago I won a little Facebook giveaway from NYX, and included in the prize was a tube of their Xtreme Lip Cream, and I've been happily using it ever since I first got it in the mail.

The color I received is Buttery Nude, and while I'll admit the name is a bit funky, the actual color is very nice. This shade is apparently really difficult to accurately photograph since the above photo looks like the cream is pink, when in reality it's actually a terracotta/salmony shade that pulls a bit orange once applied. The consistency is exactly what you'd expect it to be-- very creamy with a medium-thick consistency. The applicator is a standard doe-foot applicator, and it picks up quite a bit of product. Almost too much, so I usually dab a little bit of it back into the bottle before I apply it.

 The bottom swatch is pretty accurate in color, only Buttery Nude is a tinge more orange. The coverage of this Lip Cream is very full, so you only need one coat to achieve opacity. While there is no glitter or shimmer in the product, it does have a slightly "wet" look for a while after being applied. However, it's not a gloss. I would say it feels like a liquid lipstick. It stays a bit tacky once applied, but not overwhelmingly sticky. The scent is also nice-- it smells like unbaked cinnamon rolls, but doesn't have much of a taste. The color seems to last for about 3-4 hours before needing a touch-up, which I don't think is too bad.

Would I purchase this product on my own? Probably. I like the formula and the performance of the Lip Creme, and I'd love to try it in other shades. Thumbs up, NYX.
