If impulsive buying could kill, I would be dead by now! (double dead even!) I went to Digital Traincase’s store at Eton Building, Ortigas to deliver something. I saw the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream testers (or I thought they were) and checked them out. As I was looking for the shade’s name, then did I realize that they were not SMLC’s! I checked the tube’s name and read “NYX Xtreme Lip Cream”. They look very similar! The Xtreme Lip Cream has a glossy cap with a black rim on top of the tube while the SMLC has a slightly shorter black matte cap and no rim.

The shade that I chose was:

NYX Pinky Nude

Candy Land was a little light for my liking and Dolly Girl was a little bright. Pinky Nude was in between, and it’s gorgeous! Don’t be mislead by the name though, it’s very far from nude.

The thing I love the most is the pigmentation. One layer is opaque enough to cover my lips. NYX Xtreme Lip Cream gives off a satiny finish, no gloss needed. It did not dry my lips too.

Staying power is ridiculously great! I applied it at 2:30pm. Ate, drank, but didn’t talk too much that day. When I was about to go to sleep at 11:30pm, there was still around 25% of product on my lips. So it stayed for 9 hours, no kidding! But think about it, if I didn’t have to take it off, it would have stayed even longer!

NYX Xtreme Lip Cream glides smoothly on my lips, although between this and SMLC, the latter is still smoother.

Besides the finish, one of the main difference between Soft Matte Lip Creams and Xtreme Lip Cream is the scent. It smells like peanut butter cookies. If you’re from the Philippines and knows the Peanut Kisses from Cebu, it smells like those. Many reviews online said the that they hated how it smells but for me, it’s no big deal (fyi, I’m not that sensitive to scents).

I find it similar to some lipsticks that I have in my stash so I swatched them side by side.

It’s a very close fight between NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Creams and Xtreme Lip Creams. If you ask me, I prefer the Xtreme Lip Creams just because I’m not an avid fan of matte lipsticks.

How about you? Do you have other colors of NYX Xtreme Lip Creams?

    WOw! This color looks amazing (though, it not for my skin and lips),
    So, which one is better? I have the soft matte and its good to me, but not for many people, they say it dries their lips.
    Which has better staying power?
    Which is more moisturizing?

      Gorgeous, isn’t it?
      The lip creams are just about being matte or not.
      Because it’s matte, it dries the lips a little and stays longer. I believe all matte lipsticks/lip cream feel drying anyway.
      The Xtreme lip creams have ridiculously great staying power, but the matte lip creams win if you compare the two.
      Xtreme lip creams feels more moisturizing compared to other lipsticks I’ve tried.
      And the matte lip creams, well they’re dry because they’re matte, so they’re not moisturizing. But I’ve tried more drying lipstick than these SMLC’s and they’re not even matte!
