I placed a sly order with US cosmetics retailer Cherry Culture a few weeks ago and this was one of my picks. NYX is a brand I've tried in the past and have loved and loathed in equal parts. Some of their products are amazing and some are so so. The NYX Xtreme lip cream in Nude Peach Fuzz has quickly rocketed up my list of products I love the most. The formula is a odd one, I expected it to be a bit like the Collection Cream Puff's however they are quite different. Xtreme Lip Creams are rich velvety cream product that's super pigmented, think a bit of a lipstick lipgloss hybrid that has lasting power. The finish is fairly matte and might be drying on some people but I find it wears comfortably with minimal fading. The consistency is thick, it sort of reminds me of the OCC lip tars as they have little or no slip on the lips with full coverage.
Nude Peach Fuzz is a stunning pinky warm peachy nude, which covers my pigmented lips absolutely effortlessly. Oh gosh, so much love for this product, It's my current go-to shade for my lips! It's so damn near perfect I could weep. I need to pick myself a few more of these Xtreme Lip Creams up next time I fancy placing a oversea's order. While I did buy these from the US, you can actually buy them from the UK NYX site but bear in mind the websites has bumped up the RRP compared to how much they retail for in the USA (approx £2.90!)
