NYX Xtreme Lip Creams – Buttery Nude and Bonfire
I was pretty excited to get my hands on the NYX Xtreme Lip Creams! I’ve been playing with them for a bit now. These are some of the newest products from NYX. When I read the product description for the Xtreme Lip Creams, I interpreted these as being very similar to the Soft Matte Lip Creams, but having a different finish—silky instead of matte. Let’s see how these fared.
Left- Buttery Nude, Right- Bonfire
What the company says about the products:
Beautify your lips with this velvety rich lip cream that provides extreme pigmentation with a silky and glossy finish. This lip cream is a hybrid of lipstick, lipgloss, and lip stain with intense pigmentation all in one. Complete your head-turning look with the Xtreme Lip Cream in any of the 11 luscious colors.
The consistency of these, in the tubes, looks…goopy. Yup, goopy. It’s not like a gloss, but is more like a liquid lipstick. It’s really creamy and pigmented. I find Buttery Nude to be a bit sheerer than Bonfire, though it’s still decently pigmented. With Bonfire, even after swiping the wand applicator on the side of the tube to get rid of the excess, I still have more than enough product left for a good coat of color on both my upper and lower lips. These have a creamy finish which I don’t find particularly glossy. If you’ve tried the Soft Mattes, the texture of the Xtreme is like how the Soft Mattes feel when they haven’t dried matte yet. Silky and creamy.
The Xtreme Lip Creams are pretty creamy and can emphasize any dryness on the lips, so it’s best to exfoliate and moisturize the lips prior to application. These last longer on me than the Soft Mattes, especially Bonfire, which I’m still able to see a tint of on my lips even after a full meal. With Buttery Nude though, there’s only a light trace of it left after a cup of coffee. Without eating or drinking, these stay on for about 3 hours, Bonfire even longer.
I don’t detect any taste to the Xtreme Lip Creams, though I don’t like their scent very much, which is this artificial butter scent. The scent fades away pretty quickly though.

- I don’t find these drying.
- They don’t feel heavy or sticky on the lips.
- No weird taste.
- Packaging looks alright and not cheap.
- Not too expensive. Bought it for PhP 300, currently on sale for PhP 270.

NYX Xtreme Lip Creams – Buttery Nude and Bonfire – Dislikes:
- Emphasizes dry areas on the lips.
- These don’t exactly smell good. But the scent fades fast.
- I have to order them online, via Digital Traincase, or at bazaars.
I like these. I like the creamy finish, the silky, buttery feel, and how pigmented these are. Unlike the Soft Mattes, I don’t find them to be drying to the lips when used often. Among these two shades, I prefer Bonfire because it’s longer-lasting and I just like the vibrant pink-red color better. I’d buy these again and recommend giving them a try.
