NYX Xtreme Lip Cream Smears Like Cray-cray

“It’s not a lipstick, nor is it a gloss…It’s nothing like you’ve experienced before…It’s a liquid lipstick that goes on with full Xtreme color and intense shine”. Ha! the claim that had me clicked Add to Basket button.

…So pretty to hear, so ugly they smear! Yep, the claim is over-the-top accurate when it comes to color intensity. Pinky Nude is nowhere near nude – it screams pink to the nth degree. Absolute Red is the deepest red imaginable. These are so pigmented that they stain your lips and anything in between. Water jug, coffee mug, dishwashing sponge, straw- definitely something you don’t want to wear on a first date! Absolute Red bleeds like crazy that I resembled Joker after a hearty meal – what with all the red  feathering outside the border of my lips. Yeah that nasty! Ugh, the scent of a chemical I don’t even know where to begin.

…Now on a positive note, when I patted tissue over my lips, it rendered a  matte lipstain finish which I sort of liked. The wearability is about four hours on me, mealtime included.

Over-all rating 2/5. It could be the shades I chose but surely it’s not something I would want to buy again (I like round NYX lip gloss by the way)…
