Company’s Description

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.

NYX’s Xtreme Lip Creams are marketed as having the qualities of a lipstick, lip gloss, and lip stain in one product. They come in 11 different shades. This review is specifically for the shade Natural–a peachy-beige nude.

Packaging: 9/10

This lip product comes in an opaque, plastic tube and comes with a doe-foot applicator.

Quality: 9.25/10

Natural is a nude color that will be paler than most people’s natural lip color. But it’s actually quite a wearable nude because it doesn’t lean too strongly toward one tone–peach, beige, or grey. Natural has great color payoff and an opaque finish but doesn’t look clown-ish.

The formula is very smooth and moisturizing and has no stickiness. The Lip Cream will make your lips feel soft.

The formula is long-wearing. After 2 hours of wear, the color still persisted, and this was after eating and drinking. While the product isn’t transfer-proof it is transfer-resistant. After about 3 hours of wear, I wanted to re-apply the color.

As the gloss wears off, it gains a slight tacky texture. The product also smells slightly synthetic, but I didn’t notice it while wearing the product.

Ease of Use: 9.25/10

This creamy product glides onto the lips easily. The color is opaque, though, so you should be precise with application.

Price: 9.75/10

For $6.00 you get 0.23 ounces (7 ml) of product. This is a fantastic price for the amount of product you’re getting.
