Today I’ll be reviewing a nice product from NYX, which is COSMIC METALS LIP CREAM in EXTRATERRESTRIAL shade.
I was given it for an honest review.
You can buy this product online from the official website.
Price: about $7
Here is the information from the official website:
Intense, multidimensional color collides with the glistening effect of gloss for out-of-this world lips like you’ve never seen before. Now available in six more nude-based shades—from champagne gold and pink to a gorgeous deep brown laced with blue shimmer—our creamy-smooth Cosmic Metals Lip Cream covers your lips in lustrous color and a dazzling metallic finish that feels and looks like a gloss.
The palette comes with 12 shades, most of which are vibrant, bold and extraordinary.
I know that some of you look at these amazing shades with enthusiasm and feel happy that they are able to be free in makeup nowadays while others turn up their noses and stand up for their conservative views banning such eccentric products.
I’m more of a second type. I usually wear lipsticks and lip glosses in classy shades but always let out a squeal when I see such bold colors on someone’s lips. It’s so cool that there are people who are free from cliches and brave enough to make a statement by such a bright makeup. The main thing is that these hues look awesome on most girls, so I’m sure that some of them will find my review very useful and helpful and the shade suitable for them. However, I devote this review to the product in general, not to a particular shade. So, let’s check its quality, texture and peculiarities.
The product doesn’t have any specific packaging, but only a protective film that ensures that the product is safe and tamper-proof.
The tube is typical. It’s a quality plastic tube with a sleek and quite eye-catching design.
The wand is typical as well, nothing special. It applies the lipstick easy. It has a little bit of a curved shape, which makes the application easier.
The product is actually fragrance-free, but I can feel a slight and hardly noticeable synthetic smell.
Use within 18 months after unpacking. It’s quite good for a lipstick.
About the lipstick
The consistency is creamy and pretty liquid, so it applies and spreads out well. Moreover, it neither flows nor emphasizes peeling. The shade and a metallic glow conceal all the lip imperfections very well on the contrary. Moreover, I should say that the fine glistening particles are present as well. However, they are VERY SMALL and do not cause any skin irritation. Also, they do not scratch my lips yet they are very noticeable in the makeup.

With a flash:
effect on my lips
I would say that the lipstick transfers on everything, so that it will be all over your hands, hair or clothes if you touch it slightly. Here, I showed you how this product transfers onto a tissue after I touched it slightly.
Let’s take a closer look at the shade on my lips.
Honestly, the color is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful dark green or moss green, which reminds me of khaki a little bit. I wouldn’t buy this color myself, as I’m not that brave. Moreover, I don’t know where to wear it, as it’s not suitable for work or university. Whenever there is an occasion, for ex., a party, I’ll definitely apply this lipstick
The wear time is nothing special. The lipstick fades away and has to be reapplied after just a few hours. The pigment doesn’t set into my lips. Removing the product is a little bit of a hassle. It didn’t come off with micellar water, but it did with warm water and a soap effortlessly. So, I’m not sure if it’s a drawback. Maybe you should just try various removing methods. Perhaps a hydrophilic oil can be helpful here. I just don’t have it at the moment, so I can’t check it.
All in all, I like this lipstick and give it 4 stars. I would grab bright and non-traditional shades for photoshoots, parties, etc.
It can also be used as an eyeliner, but keep in mind that it has a creamy texture, which is hard to apply. However, the option is nice for a photoshoot
