I’ve already tried the NYX Simply Nude Lip Creams and I liked them well enough but I think the NYX Simply Red Lip Cream Crayons performed a little bit better for me. These has a twist up chubby pencil so no need for a sharpener. They are fragrance and flavor free for those sensitive to such in their lip products.

The formula quite reminds me of a lipstick in all honesty. These aren’t as balmy as other lip pencils I’ve used and they have the strong pigment of a lipstick and the wear of one as well with a good four to five hour wear time. They apply without tugging, have a smooth, even finish, and tons of opaque pigment on a single application! The satiny finish has a smooth finish that does not accentuate dryness or finer lines. Some shades do migrate and feather so you might want to grab a transparent or colored lip liner to keep them in place. The texture is quite thin and has a creamy consistency with an easy glide on lips. They almost feel semi-matte in finish at times but wear as a more comfortable satin cream. The colors are bright, bold, and quite dramatic with five of the six shades leaving a staining effect behind well after they wear away.
I had issues (and many of you expressed the same problem) with the tips snapping off at the base during shipment or use. I experienced this with the NYX Simply Nude Lip Creams and mentioned it in my recent review. THANKFULLY I had no issues with the NYX Smply Red Lip Creams! These are going strong without breaking!
Needless to say I was beyond happy with these. Cheap, great formula, pigmented, long wearing….! What more could you want from a lip crayon? These take the chubby lip pencil to new and exciting heights.
