"It's not a lipstick, nor is it a gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before. It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte."! Doesn't that sound great? The colors are beautiful and NYX is a great brand. Read on to see if it truly does go on silky smooth and worth the price.
I purchased this set from Urban Outfitters, they had this box set as well as individual ones. The individual ones were $6 each and this set was only $12. Basically getting 1 free. The 3 colors that came in the box are: Antwerp, Addis Ababa and Tokyo. This line of lip creams from NYX comes in 11 different colors. They also have another set of lip creams called Xtreme Lip Cream that also has 11 colors.
The tube packaging contains 6.5g/.23oz of the product inside. It is packaged like a lip gloss instead of a lipstick. It also comes with a doe foot applicator, which makes it easy to give an even application on the lips.
The colors are so pretty, I want to get the other 8! The colors are not exactly unique but the idea of the product is. I think you can find these colors in just about any brand but the fact that it is a lip cream and is applied with a doe foot is a little different. I don't own anything else like it in my collection.
-Addis Ababa- My favorite!
- Variety of colors available
- Easy to blend
- Gives a very nice finish
- Comfortable and light weight
- Nice staying power, the darker/brighter colors leave a nice stain after some time (Addis Ababa)
- Can be drying for some people (as most matte products are)
- Lighter colors may enhance the look of dry lips
I hope you guys enjoyed this review and be sure to let me know which colors I should pick up next during the Ulta BOGO sale! Have you tried these? What is your opinion on the colors and products?
