MAKE UP | NYX Xtreme Lip Cream

L-R: Absolute Red, Pinky Nude, Nude Peach Fuzz (I do apologise about my skin. I took these after a long day and I didn't realise how awful my make up looked)

Previously, you could've branded me as a lip product hater. Most were sticky and heavy, and I never seemed to get on with them. But these past couple of years, lip products have triumphed and my collection has quickly become over-saturated with them (if that's possible). Aside from lip crayons, my favourites are without a doubt NYX's Xtreme Lip Creams.

I currently only have three in my possession - Pinky Nude*, Absolute Red* and Nude Peach Fuzz* - and I will most definitely be expanding this when my next loan instalment is due (April seriously can't come quick enough; Candy Land needs to be mine). My favourite colour is Pinky Nude which isn't very nude at all; it's a vibrant Barbie-pink that despite it's brightness, is very wearable. 

What really sells it for me though is the formula. Described as being an "all-in-one lip perfector," this hybrid of a lipgloss and lipstick provides extreme pigmentation with a glossy finish that isn't sticky. Leaving your lips moisturised all day, these Creams hydrate and last a good few hours on the lips without bleeding. They're everything I wanted the Rimmel Apocolips to be.

These Lip Creams are available to buy here where they retail for £7 each or of course, in selected Next stores nationwide.

Have you tried the NYX Xtreme Lip Creams?
