NYX Strawberry Jam Xtreme Shine Lip Cream Review

image

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are pretty great but I’m just loving the Xtreme Shine Lip Creams right now! I know it’s matte season but sometimes my dry lips need something a little more creamier. That’s why I’m really digging the Xtreme Shine Lip Cream formula. It’s the perfect harmony of lipstick and lip gloss!

Strawberry Jam is a bright warm fuchsia with a light sweet scent and glossy finish. NYX markets the formula as a liquid lipstick but it feels more like a gloss. An intensely pigmented, super creamy gloss. It glides on smoothly, evenly and opaque in a single swipe. You certainly don’t have to build this baby!

The formula is very creamy and lightweight with a really nice consistency. It’s not too thick and not too watery. It does seem to cling to the lips a bit but it doesn’t feel sticky. It didn’t emphasize dryness or settle into lip lines either. Some liquid lipsticks can be a bit drying but Strawberry Jam felt really good on the lips. It’s lightly moisturizing and wears pretty well too. It lasts for around 4 hours before fading away into a stain that lasts for hours on end. My only complaint with Strawberry Jam is that it tends to slip around a bit so you’ll need a lip liner to keep it in place. I loved how it looked paired with Smashbox Violet Always Sharp Lip Liner! If you happen to come across the NYX Xtreme Shine Lip Creams you should give Strawberry Jam or Dolly Girl a try!
