Hey beautifuls, I hope you've had a fab weekend. I'm feeling slightly under the weather today, ahem hungover, so I've spend the majority of the day in my jimmies blogging which is how Sundays should be spent! Not too long ago I visited Olympia Beauty Show (blog post HERE) where I picked up some NYX products which is a brand I've wanted to add to my collection for some time now. It's so hard to get your hands on NYX products in the UK which is annoying as when I've read reviews/watched YouTube videos all of their products look great! I brought Xtreme Shine Lip Cream Natural XLC 10 and I've been obsessed with it ever since.
 
This is a hybrid of lipstick, lip gloss and lip stain all in one - the best of all 3 worlds! It's such a beautiful light pink/beige nude colour which looks lovely on its own as well as to also tone down a lipstick. As you can see it's quite a light shade and I have to admit that I much prefer this on me when I'm pale as opposed to when I've fake tanned. It still looks nice, don't get me wrong, but I think this is definitely more suited to a pale skin tone as I think it could look too light on someone who is darker than me.

I like the sleek appearance of this tube and it contains soooo much product. The applicator of this is freaking amazing too. It's longer and flatter than your standard gloss applicator which helps you achieve a crisp edge around your lip line wonderfully easy. The only gripe I have with this is that there can be too much product on the brush so I've currently got a lot of product around the top from where I've been swiping it off before I apply.

This applies like a dream, it feels so soft and creamy which is surprising coming from me as I normally cannot bear the texture of lip gloss on my lips as I find the sticky-ness can sometimes feel slightly cringey. It is so opaque and pigmented so a little goes along way which is great for the cheap price of £5.50. The staying power is amazing, 2-3 hours after application is when I reapply which is unheard of for a nude shade. The texture is slightly thick but not tacky or sticky unlike other lip glosses I've come across, so thankfully I haven't had the whole 'long hair sticking to my lips in the wind' scenario. I've found that when I apply this I need a mirror in hand as it requires precision but afterwards your smackers look fabulous so it is worth taking that little bit longer. After 5 minutes or so these slowly dry so it doesn't slide over your lips and teeth which is always a winner, it lasts a lengthy amount of time and is slightly matte with a hint of gloss (if that makes any sense?!)

If you can't already tell by my rave review, I looove this lip cream! High quality, cruelty-free and affordable, I can't wait to buy more.

Have you tried products from NYX?
