NYX Xtreme Shine Lip Cream

NYX Xtreme Lip Cream Natural Review Swatch

 This is the Xtreme Shine Lip Cream in the shade Natural from NYX. I picked this up when I was in Florida last month - actually, I took a gamble and bought two whole sets of liquid lip products. Why is that a gamble? Well you see, I hated gloss. I hated the feeling of any liquid finish on my lips; the sliminess, the transfer, the looking like you have a beard every time you walk indoors because so much product has stuck to your lips when you went outdoors for like 5 seconds. I just really,really wasn't into that.

Now I'm not going to tell you that this doesn't transfer, or stick my hair to my face, because it does, but what I am going to say, is that the finish and colours of the NYX lip products are so flattering and so amazingly pretty to finish a look with, that I honestly, honestly don't care about having to reapply after I drink a cup of tea, it is so worth it.

Like I said, I have quite a few of these now, and have bought more since my return to the UK, and I will do more swatches and posts to go over more of the lines and what the differences etc. are, but I just had to get this one out there, because I am in love with it - I wear it basically every day.

It's great for applying at work, or when you're busy - the product goes on so evenly and smoothly, I can easily do it without a mirror - and remember, I'm a complete gloss novice, so that's really saying something. Also, although it does transfer and need reapplied after eating - it doesn't fade much on its own. And, when it does come off - it's in a nice,even manner; no freaky looking flakes and weird patchy effects here.

I honestly think that NYX makes the liquid lip products for liquid lip product haters - if you've never tried anything from the brand, I suggest you maybe have a look online at some swatches or check some out in person if you get the chance.

 This is how I normally wear it; one swipe on and kind of rubbed in with my lips. Add another sweep on top and you'll get a much more full on shine, but you know me, I like a 'my lips but better' look.
