REVIEW | NYX Xtreme Shine Lip Cream in Dolly GirlWednesday, December 11, 2013
Hello everyone! It's finally time for another makeup review!
A couple of weeks ago, I went to Target on the search for a bright fuchsia lip color. It's very rare for me to buy lip products since I usually NEVER wear lip products but lately I have been purchasing more lip products just because why not? NYX is now available at Target (yay!) so I looked at their selections. I am in love with their Matte Lip Creams so I decided to give the Xtreme Shine Lip Creams a try.
|"It's like nothing you've ever experiences before!" LOL|
When I first tried it, I noticed the STANK. This thing smells like plastic, like nasty ass plastic. I only notice it when I apply it. After it's been on the lips, the smell goes away but if you guys are sensitive to smell, oh god, don't buy it. I usually do not care for the scent but this product made me gag when I first smelled it.
BAM! This colour is very bright and loud! Very different from my really safe, muted colours in my lip collection. I don't know when I would ever wear this, maybe when I'm out when I want attention (what? lol). The fuchsia colour just glams your makeup up so wearing a glammy outfit is a must when wearing this lip shade.
If I ever wanted to wear this to school, I would probably focus the colour more on the center of my lips and blend it out. You know, that Korean lip trend thing.
The texture, it's not sticky at all! It's very comfortable on the lips and stays for a long time. Application is fairly easy. It may apply kinda streaky but blotting your lips after will make it blend together a bit. Even though they have a shiny finish, it make dry out your lips and show the crack on your lips so make sure you exfoliate and apply lip balm.
Because of the shiny texture, it transfers VERY easily. After 4-5 hours, it will fade and the shininess of the cream will fade also so touch ups are necessary.
- Full on pigmentation!
- Healthy looking shine
- Lightweight and comfortable
- Does not settle in lines
- 4-5 hour wear
- Flattering fuchsia!
- Scent smells like burnt plastic
- Applies streaky
- Gets in my teeth
All in all, I am very happy with this lip product other than the nasty smell. I will probably try out more of the shades in this line and I really recommend this product to everyone unless you hate smelly products.
Hopefully this review helped you guys. Do not be afraid to wear bold colours! I used to not wear bright colours at all but after purchasing this, I feel a bit more confident in wearing brighter colours.
Thank you guys for taking the time to read this. I will see you guys later!
This is not sponsored. I bought the product with my own moolaaa and I was not contacted by any company to write this review. Everything is my honest opinion since I like to be real. And if any of you guys are actually reading this, yoooo.
