After the success of the Soft Matte lip creams, NYX has launched the Xtreme Lip Cream some time back which is a moisturizing, longer lasting version of the Soft Matte lip creams. Today I’m reviewing a pretty pink shade Bonfire from this range.
Price : $6.00 (approx. Rs 300-330). Available at Blanc II Noir at 15% off for $4.50

My take on the product
NYX describes the product pretty accurately – its like a super pigmented lipstick, lip gloss and lip stain rolled into one! It comes in the same packaging as the Soft Matte lip cream – clear plastic tube with a black cap and a sponge tip applicator. I like the clear body of the lip cream, it makes it really easy to locate shades when you own more than one.
The texture of the lip cream is like that of a heavy cream. It is super SUPER pigmented and in a single swipe, one gets intense color on the lips. The color applies really intense so if you’re someone who doesn’t like a very strong color on the lips, you could use a lip brush and apply it in a thinner layer for a softer look. My only qualm with the Soft Matte lip creams was that they were drying but Xtreme lip creams are really moisturizing! The cream does not accentuate dryness or lines of the lips, it has a slightly glossy finish that gives a plumped healthy look to the lips. The formula is really long staying, it easily stays for 8 hours and the stain is quite strong so as the glossiness fades off, the stain still stays till removed. There is absolutely nothing not-to-love about this formula, its moisturizing, applies evenly, is super pigmented and super longstay!
I would love to give this a perfect 5/5 but there comes the problem of availability! One needs to order these from an international website to get them at a reasonable price which requires extra shipping charges and the shipping time. There is always the uncertainty of the packaging reaching or not reaching but thankfully, my packages have always reached me on time.
The shade Bonfire looks like a soft earthy berry shade in the tube and swatch but it applies much bright on the lips. The photos have not quite captured the brightness of this shade. It adds so much life to the face and I think its a shade that’ll suit everyone. It looks great paired with any pink blush and would go well with almost any colored eye makeup look as well.
If you’re looking to try out the Xtreme Lip creams, Bonfire is one of the best shades from the collection in my opinion. It is quite versatile and will look great on dusky as well as pale complexions!

The NOT-SO-GOOD about NYX Xtreme Lip Cream :
- Needs international ordering which adds the shipping charges
NYX Xtreme Lip Creams are super pigmented, moisturizing lip colors in a cream formula that apply opaque in a single swipe and stay on the lips for a long long time. The formula is excellent and there’s nothing not-to-love about it! The color doesn’t settle into lines or accentuate dryness, it gives a healthy shine to the lips instead giving a smooth, plumped look. The shade Bonfire is a bright berry pink shade that would look on great on many skin tones. The NYX Xtreme lip creams are definitely worth a try, I’d highly recommend these to everyone!
