MY TAKE ON NYX COSMIC METALS LIP CREAM
Packaging: The lip creams come in a tube with doe applicator; the packaging is quite similar to NYX Liquid Suede Lip Creams.
Texture: The lip creams are very creamy just like liquid suede creams. They glide on effortlessly and are very pigmented.
Shade: There are a total of 7 shades in this range; below is a summary on 4 wearable shades for Indian skin tones-
Crystalized Metal- This is a pretty barbie pink shade with pearly finish and shimmering glitter. This is my favorite in the range.
Retro Harmony- This is a shimmery nude shade.
Galactic Love- This is a copper brown shade and will go well with all skin tones.
Elite- This is a deep pearly brown/chocolate brown shade.
All the lip creams contain shimmer.
Fragrance: These lip creams don’t really have any characteristic fragrance.
How I use and staying power: To use, Apply Cosmic Metals Lip Cream to the center of lips and work outward until reaching the lip line. Pair with NYX Cosmic Metals Shadow Palette for a metallic look that is totally interstellar!
The lip cream isn’t matte but it doesn’t bleed either. It does transfer but the pigment does not go away quickly. The lip cream might go away after heavy meals leaving behind shimmer on the lips that can only be completely removed with a makeup remover. The lip cream feels comfortable and moisturizing on the lips and won’t get in fine lines like the usual satin or matte lipsticks. It is good to dab the lipstick using a tissue paper prior to meals so that you do not end up with shimmer around your lips. The lipsticks/lip creams do have some lip plumping effect with a weird tingling sensation on the lips that lasts for initial few seconds. I checked the nyx website and description but nothing as such is mentioned. I love the plumping effect but I am not sure if anybody else would experience this or not; if you too had this experience do let us know in the comments. The lip creams are all shimmery and have metallic to pearly finish which won’t be in every body’s wishlist, but I am sure a lot of you might like using these during festivals and occasions.
