NYX Extreme Lip Cream in Natural || Review and Swatches

Hi Everyone!!

Today I have another NYX lip product review for you. NYX has a huge variety of lip products. I love that NYX is very afforadable. I was always intrigued by the NYX Xtreme Shine Lip Cream so I picked up one in the color Natural which is a nudy peach color. The packaging is not as cute as NYX Mega Shine lip glosses or NYX Butter glosses. But I hoped the actual product would impress me enough to look past that.

What NYX says about the product:

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 and lip gloss with intense pigmentation all-in-one. Complete your head-turning look with the variety of luscious colors.

What I think about the product:

The name fits the product perfectly. True to the name, formula of this lip product is absolutely extreme. The pigmentation of this product is off the charts. It reminds me of the Too Faced Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick. The formula is almost completely opaque. It feels buttery smooth on the lips. It feels very moisturizing. Since it is thick, it does not feather out. The formula is slightly sticky but still comfortable to wear. The color transfers a little but does not fade away quickly over time. 

I really like the formula but not the color. This is the first peachy nudy color I find tolerable on me but I still think it washes me out. I have come to a point where I have promised myself not to try any more nudy peachy shades. We brown girls need some color on our lips.

The packaging is rather plain but practical. The tube is clear and hence you can see the color inside. It has a standard doe foot applicator which feels soft on the lips. I wish the packaging was prettier but nonetheless the excellent formula makes up for it.
