NYX is a brand that I have always been interested in, so I recently decided that it’s time for me to make the big move and order some of their products. A week later and after a few minor delivery issues a little package of goodness set food on my doorway and it was here – my first NYX product. Excitingly enough it was nothing else but a gorgeous lip product and we all know how I feel about my lippies! I instantly applied it and I fell completely head over heels in love with it!
This NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Bonfire is everything I’d hope it would be and more! The shade is this gorgeous mid-toned pinkish plum, which is just to die for. It is an ideal winter-to-spring transition color in my opinion and it looks a bit more vibrant and brighter on the lips than it does in the tube, which was a lovely surprise. I adore Bonfire as it is bold but very classy and feminine at the same time. I can easily wear it during the day but I love it even more on a night out – it makes the perfect party companion and I’ve gotten tons of compliments when I wear it. The shade finishes off any makeup look perfectly and I love how much it brightens up my whole face. It’s a winner and it has quickly made its way into my most used lip products.
If you are not familiar with the formula of the NYX Xtreme Lip Creams, they are very much like the oh-so-famous Rimmel Apocalips lacquers. They are somewhere in between a lipstick and a lip gloss, almost like a liquid lipstick. The lips creams feel comfortable on the lips and don’t dry them out, which was a big concern of mine. They are ridiculously opaque and as you can see from the swatch above you only need one swipe of the applicator to get it this opaque. Amazing! Bonfire stays on my lips for hours and hours and it does leave slight stain, which I always like as it extends the wear time a bit. As far as the application process of the Lip Cream goes – it’s pretty faff-free thanks to the doe foot applicator which gives the right amount of product and glides on the lips easily. One thing I have to mention though is that the Lip Cream tends to accentuate imperfections. As long as you exfoliate your lips before use and you put only one layer - you will be fine and your lips will look irresistibly juicy and full! Simples.
I am absolutely smitten by this little beaut and I love how effortlessly sophisticated it looks. The shade is to absolutely die for and one thing is for sure – it will turn heads! ;) As for the formula – I love it! It makes my dry lips happy and beautiful so what else could I wish for!? Overall, NYX did it – they impressed me and now I am officially hooked! Now where did I put my log in details, I need to place another order asap!
Have you tried NYX Lip Creams before? Do you love them as much as I do?
