NYX Simply Red Lip Creams

The NYX Simply Red Lip Cream is a new chubby lip pencil that NYX has added to the permanent collection in six different shades of gorgeous red. These are such a great pick up because all the shades are super pigmented and it gives you a chance to grab your most perfect shade of red at a great price ($6.49 and they are Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off at Ulta.com this week)!

Take a look!

NYX Simply Red Lip Cream

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.

    Finally, I don’t have to write a Debbie Downer comment :p I am in LOVE with these lippies. I bought Maraschino and Leading Lady. They wear down to such a comfortable matte on me, I love the effect. Some other reviews made them seem shiny or slippery. Not on me, no way! I’m in soft, comfortable matte heaven! And so damn cheap. I have to say both colors look nearly identical on me but I have very pigmented lips. Leading Lady reads just a tad darker while Maraschino is a bit brighter. But I put them on side by side on my lips and I couldn’t tell a discernible difference. Now worries, I’ll wears these puppies down to the nubs. These could be HG status for me, giving crumbly Ruby Woo a run for her money!

      haha you aren’t a debbie downer πŸ˜€ I’m glad you like these!!!!!! πŸ˜€

    ALL the colors look great – I have had NYX lippies in the past and I have to say I was quite enamored with the reds. I’ll have to check these out when I hit up Ulta later.

    I got Knock Out, but unfortunately mine was one of those with the tip snapping off during shipment. It’s forgivable though, because it’s a great formula and color!

    Are these good to use as a lip liner? I’m really looking for a good one to go on under my Urban Decay Revolution in Shame…. Or something similar to put under glosses? Thanks!

    I like your opinions and enjoy your blog.

    A suggestion for you, if you don’t mind: When you pose for a lipstick swatch, please do a close-up shot of your lips also, to show the swatch properly. Sometimes your hairband is a distraction.

    Thanks.

    I LOVE these lipsticks! Though do use a clear lip liner with them. They are a little big to be using for just liner. Thanks for doing the swatches!

  • BelΓ©n

    You look stunning with all of them. I want to buy them now. It’s a shame that we don’t have nyx counters here in Paraguay, some shops sale the products but they doesn’t cost 3 or 4 USD. I love your reviews!
