The Nyx Cosmic Metals Lip Creams are shimmery, metallic lip colors that come in a variety of unique shades. I picked up the shades Dark Nebula, Extraterrestrial & Galactic.
The Cosmic Metals come in the same packaging as Nyx’s Liquid Suede Lip Creams: a clear tube with a black “jewel” lid and a long, flat applicator. All the shades have very good pigmentation (I only purchased three, but I did test all the shades at Ulta). The more product you apply, the less chrome it looks and the more shimmery it appears. The product is not uncomfortable on the lips, but tends to be a bit sticky. The wear becomes more comfortable after a little while, and it does not leave behind any gritty pieces of glitter. The Cosmic Metals are not the easiest to remove, they tend to leave behind a slight tint and some shimmer. I recommend using an oil (I like coconut oil) to remove the lip color, to avoid any unnecessary scrubbing. I love unique, bold lip colors, and I have been getting behind the metallic lip trend. These do not make a grey, blue or green lip more wearable, but I think they are gorgeous worn alone, or on top of a lipstick or lip liner.
