I had reviewed NYX EXtreme Lip Cream in Nude Peach Fuzz a few days back. I was so impressed with the product that I decided to order it in other colors. Actually, I don’t have a single light pink lip cream, lipstick or gloss and when I saw this color, I just went crazy. So here am I, again with the review of NYX Xtreme Lip Cream, but this time in a color which won’t wash your lips out and will look cute on the lips.
It’s not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It’s like nothing you have experienced before. Its liquid lipstick that goes on with full Xtreme color and intense shine.
Rs. 475 (available at discount online).

My Take on NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Candy Land:
First of all, let’s talk about the packaging. The tube is transparent with a black colored screw cap. I can say with surety that it’s very sturdy and totally leak proof because I have dropped it approximately 3-4 times (I hate my clumsiness). It has a regular doe-foot applicator similar to the Maybelline and Colorbar lip gloss applicators. Its kind of a perfect applicator. It picks up the right quantity of the product and helps in achieving complete and even coverage. It glides effortlessly on the lips. Sometimes, when I want a very light coverage, I pick up a very small quantity of the cream and this applicator helps me to spread that small quantity on both my upper and lower lips and helps in getting even coverage.
Candy Land is a very pretty, bright pink color; like a Barbie pink color. It has no shades of peach or brown in it. It is a perfect girly candy pink color, which will suit fair to medium complexions a lot.
The texture is very smooth. It doesn’t settle into fine lines and doesn’t give a patchy finish. In fact, I find this lip cream to be less drying than the “Nude Peach Fuzz.” In fact, I feel its moisturizing. I have never felt the need to apply lip balm beneath it. I have slept twice in the noon with this cream still on my lips and my lips were still soft and moisturized when I woke up. Its absolutely non sticky, does not bleed and is non transferable. The finish is creamy and glossy.
Pigmentation is intense. A single swipe and both the upper and lower lips are of candy pink color. It hides the pigmentation of my lips and gives an opaque coverage. Staying power is very good. It stays on my lips for more than 4 hours and survives light meals and cold drinks.
Now, the swatches:
