NYX Xtreme Lip Cream Review + Swatches

Here's another NYX product review for all you make up junkies out there...

That's right! It's the NYX Xtreme Lip Cream
Bought this one at Rainbow Project, located at Fashion Walk, 2nd floor of Gaisano Mall of Davao in Bajada.
(You can also check their multiply site here.)
They sell these babies for P 300.00 each.
I bought three of them, varying from a nude to red to pink one.

According to NYX, it's not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before. It's liquid lipstick that goes on with full Xtreme color and intense shine.
It has a variety of 11 shades, same as the Soft matte Lip Cream.
XLC11 Nude Peach Fuzz (same as SMLC's Istanbul) 

 XLC07 Absolute Red (same as SMLC's Monte Carlo)

XLC06 Pinky Nude (same as SMLC's San Paulo)

From left to right: XLC11, XLC06, XLC07 


...and now I'm gonna narrow it down to each shade.
Let's start with XLC11 Nude Peach Fuzz

 It's a light peachy-pink color, almost similar to that NYX round lipstick in Strawberry Milk. It suits better for girls with fair skin. For morena skin, like mine, this is not the right shade. 

Next is XLC06 Pinky Nude

 First I thought it was just an ordinary pinkish-almost-fuschia color like the SMLC in San Paulo, but for me, I think it's the perfect dolly pink color for all skin types.

..and last but not the least, XLC07 Absolute Red
 (w/out flash)
This is actually my personal fave. It's a rich red color and it's so perfect for all skin types.


  • The product is highly pigmented
  • It's extremely glossy
  • The perfect lipstick + lip gloss combination
  • Lasts for 3-4 hours (for me, that's okay)
  • It's moisturizing. Doesn't dry on the lips easily.
  • Shades are limited. Only 11 are available. I hope NYX is going to release more shades of this product
  • For its price, I find it a bit pricey.
  • It only contains 7 mL (sad)
  • Can only be bought online on some territories.
Overall rating: 4/5

and that's it for my review of this amazing new product from NYX.
For those who have tried this products, what do you love/hate about it?
and for those who haven't, any plans on purchasing this one?
I would love to know your insights about this product.

  9. hi.. have u tried testing the nyx product for lead content you bought in RProject??.. i saw in a certain nyx forum here in the phils that even in malls there are fake nyx already or they call singapore cosmetics.. do u think RProjects nyx are authentic?.. hoping for your honest answer tnx

    1. I bought some as well in Rainbow Project. They are 100% authentic. I can attest to that because I saw their new stocks arrived while I was at the shop. It all came from Los Angeles via FEDEX. I heard in Chimes Specialty Store (like a department store - their round lippies smells like soap) they sell old stocks or maybe those are fake. But as far as I know, there are no FAKE NYX Cosmetics yet. I mean the price is already low even on their website and still can afford to fake those? I don't think so. The only fake brands I know are those like MAC, URBAN DECAY, and the expensive ones that are being sold everywhere. Tsk.
