NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Bonfire Swatches

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?

  1. This looks like SUCH a gorgeous colour. I'm never sure where to find NYX in the UK - I wish it was more widely available! But if I see this I'll be snapping it up! xoxo

    1. It's beautiful isn't it! <3 I know that you can get NYX online but it would be so much better if they become more widely available in the shops. If you manage to get your mitts on this definitely let me know how you like it :) xx

    1. Oh it's such a pity you don't like the Apocalips. I personally adore the formula and I love how long lasting and pigmented the lacquers are :) Have you tried any of the other NYX lip products? I'd like to try some new ones xx

  6. It looks a little more red than plum to me but it's a gorgeous shade! It definitely looks like something I would wear. I love the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. A while back I did a review on my blog of the shade Istanbul if you're interested :)

    1. Yes I know it looks a bit more reddish but the thing is that Bonfire changes a bit depending on the lighting. When it's darker appears more plum and when it's sunny outside it looks more red/pink :) Oh I haven't tried the Soft Mattes yet but they are definitely on my wish list, I'll have a look at your review in a bit hun xxx

    1. Yees this is lovely but I also want to try the Matte Lip Creams as I also like to go for matte finish sometimes. I will have to take a peek at the concealer too - I'm always on a hunt for a new great concealer :) xx

  8. I have one of the nude ones and I was amazed how at pigmented it was because nudes are hard colors to get opaque. This color that you have looks gorgeous and like a color that would be great in all seasons!

    1. Oh so sad to hear that :( I suit pinks rather well but wait until you see me wear something nude - I look ridiculous and I always struggle to find nude that compliments me. I have high hopes on the NYX nudes though, they look fab so you may want to check them out :) xx
