My Bright Summer Pink Lip of the Moment: NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in 01 Dolly Girl


Last year, Soft Matte Lip Creams were all the rage in the NYX line. I do like matte finishes, but sometimes there's nothing like a creamy texture to bring out all the ripe, glossy glory of a bright, hot, shade.

For me, NYX Xtreme Lip Creams go on thick and opaque like liquid lipsticks and are not sticky the way lip glosses are, but don't expect them to be super long-wearing. The finish is good though (in my opinion); like a very creamy and opaque lipstick that you apply with a doe-foot applicator.
Since the Summer fashion season for me usually means a return to stronger, brighter lips, I feel a need to highlight the shade 01 Dolly Girl. It's bright and very blue-based but deep enough to be flattering on many skin tones and to not look neon.

NYX Xtreme Lip Creams are cruelty-free and available for about $6 (or under) depending where you purchase them from.

  2. @Constanze: Yes, it's SO fun! (And so cheap!)

    @Steph: You're right, there isn't a lot of pastel/white undertones in this, so it works on a lot more skin-tones than regular bright pastel pinks.

  3. NOOOOOOO. I just bought three of these and I didn't get this shade. Now I regret it terribly because it's so gorgeous!
