NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Nude Peach Fuzz

Nude Peach Fuzz, Pinky Nude
This is my first foray into the NYX Xtreme lip creams, and I've got to say, they are really nice!  Great pigmentation, smooth coverage, creamy, comfortable to wear, and inexpensive to boot. 

Today I've got Nude Peach Fuzz to show you, along with some comparisons to some OCC lip tars.  Nude Peach Fuzz is a light peachy pink cream that is opaque on the lips.  I've been using the doe foot applicator to apply the lip cream on my lower lip, pressing lips together, and then using my finger to smooth and fill in.  I would imagine a lip brush would work even better, as the opaqueness and pigmentation of these requires precise application to look their best.   Once applied, these have a wear time of several hours and feel comfortable on. Towards the end of wear by my lips did feel a bit dry, but I'm addicted to lip balm and tend to reapply throughout the day, so no great surprise.

Nude Peach Fuzz reminded me of OCC's Lip Tars, and they do share the same first ingredient, Ricinus Communs seed oil.  The formulas are different, however, with the lip tars containing higher quality ingredients (IMO), with less chemical sounding names.  The lip tars are also more pigmented and have a thinner consistency, whereas the NYX Xtreme creams have more of a lip gloss consistency.  The wear of the NYX creams is comparable to the lip tars, however, so these are a good low budget substitution at their $5-$6 price versus OCC's lip tars at $16.

Here is Nude Peach Fuzz (middle) compared with OCC's Hush (top) and Memento (bottom).  It is closest to Hush, but not a complete dupe as Hush leans a touch more brown.  I counted 11 shades at Ulta, which is where I purchased mine during a recent BOGO offer. 

Have you tried NYX Xtreme lip creams?  What did you think?

Disclaimer:  I purchased this.
