NYX Cosmetics-Xtreme Lip Cream (Strawberry Jam)

By Stephanie1 @NewBeautyReview
I was in Ulta shopping for my Valentine's Day giveaway a few days ago & came across something that stopped me dead in my tracks! Since it's a festive giveaway, I wanted to get Red & Pink items so while I was looking for a nice lip gloss I came across the NYX Cosmetics, Xtreme Lip Cream. It sounds boring, like it's a night treatment for the lips but it surprised me. I saw this on my way out when I was leaving to go to Sephora because I hadn't found anything yet. I like NYX makeup because it's really good quality AND not pricey, a combo which is very hard to come by.
I was drawn to the deep, hot pink color and when I read the description to see what exactly it was, I saw it said, "It's not a lipstick nor is it a gloss. It's like nothing you've ever experienced before. It's liquid lipstick that goes on with full Xtreme color and Intense shine." Well they're not kidding! It's SO pigmented & deep in texture. So much so that I would use this without a lip liner. You can still use one but you don't need it because it's that precise.
It does look like it would be a classic lip gloss but when I tested it, I knew right away it wasn't. The texture actually is like nothing I've ever seen before because it's SO creamy & moisturizing. Even after I blotted it with a tissue, it stayed moist but it wasn't running all over my face.
The sister product to this is the Soft Matte Lip Cream. It's the same concept, looks like a gloss but goes on creamy but the Matte settles into a soft matte finish. The Soft Matte isn't cakey Matte, which I like. In fact, they look identical & I thought that's what this was until I had a closer look.
The Xtreme is too thick to be a gloss but it's not goopy or crumbly and has just the right shine. It's perfect! It's lightweight so even though your lips feel conditioned, it doesn't feel heavy. Strange, but a good strange! Lol!
I got one for my giveaway goody bag & one for myself, of course :-)
The best part is that it cost $5.99!! I would have easily paid more. It comes in 11 different shades and I will be getting more.
I threw it on (with no lip liner no less, so it's not on perfectly) so you could see it's textures. It's creamy but also very shiny.
