For some reason, I look best in warm reds, and this one is definitely just that; it's an orange-y red, and it provides an awesome pop of color when I just want black mascara and a mouth with impact! The formulation is darn good for the price. It definitely stays for a long time, and it seems to become a stain, which I don't mind. It's a neat color, and I'm glad I have it in my lipstick rotation!
Bright? Yes. Bold? Yes. Hooker red? Perhaps, if the hookers in your town wear bright red red. Here in NYC the hookers I see apparently prefer nude lip colors. Just my observation. For reasons unknown no matter what red lip color I buy the color turns cool. If I buy a warm based red my teeth look yellow. That said IMO on me this looks like a mid point between cool and warm red. This is my first NYX round tube lipstick purchase and so far I'm quite happy. This is not matte, has no shimmer and can be layered for a very potent look or blotted down, as I prefer to wear, for a more wearable look. I line my lips and apply directly from the tube and then either go over my lips with a lip brush or use my pinky finger to blot some product off. I favor red lips and accept the attention I receive from those who either disapprove or are too damn judgmental to comprehend that some of us don't give a $#it what they think. This is a very inexpensive product that imparts your lips with a glamorous red that has nice staying power with huge pigment payoff.
This lipstick is a bright orange red. Great color, very bold. My problem with this is how bad it stains. I swatched this on my hand and after 4 washes have yet to get it off. My daughter applied this lipstick yesterday morning and after many attempts at taking this off the red tinge is still there. I think this color should be marketed as a stain, one that is impossible to get off. As someone who likes to change her mind and change her lipstick color mid day I don't like this. This one is not for me.
I don't mind bright red, but this is really more coral than red. I thought it was going to be a warm red. Nope. Phooey.
I love this lippy for summer!! It has more of an orange tone than my usual reds which are blue-based, so I feel it has more of that summery vibe! I love NYX lippies as they have great staying power and this one is no exception! It is VERY bright though so do not wear if you don't want to stand out! :)
I purchased this product and have worn it several times... I have not had any bleeding problems even without wearing a liner...
It is creamy and very very bright... Like another reviewer said...It is hooker red...but I love it!
The tube is easy to hold and easy to store, its very compact compaired to some other lipsticks I have.
Its a great buy for the price!
I love... love love LOVE red lips. I love blue toned, warm toned, hell I like purple red lips, I don't care. This one is a definite must for any red lip lover. It almost borders on an orangey red. So I actually wear MAC's Morange over it, which is a stark orange lipstick, so it actually tones down both Morange and Eros and turns a very lovely orangey-red that's great for going out with. I do like Eros by itself, and it is rather bright, so if you're not ready for the attention, don't put it on. If you want to even mute it down you can. I take a VERY little bit on a lip brush and lightly brush it on over balmed lips and it gives my lips a very berry red color and it honestly lasts ALL DAY! The first day I wore this color I was surprised how long it lasted even though I put so little on.
I would say, for the price it's worth it.
Only reason I gave one lippie off is because I don't like the smell sometimes. Put on a nice smelling gloss and you're good to go.
If you aren't bold enough to wear a bright red, please don't buy this color. Otherwise, stick to other reds that won't make you stand out of the crowd. I love this red lipstick and wear it to school on campus. Of course, I'm not afraid, and I also have fuller lips so it is definitely noticeable when I wear it. I have been looking for a red like this and have finally found it. I have found the lipstick stays on for a while, even though after drinking, my cups look like my lipstick has melted away on them. This lipstick goes on very smoothly but it does dry, so I use lip gloss. The smell is sort of so so. Overall, I would make sure to wear neutral eyeshadow so your lips get all of the attention.

Extremely bright red. It is sort of orangey and could be that fire engine red you're looking for. I was never a red lip person, so this was an experiment. Very hard to wear for me. I gave it to my mum, she can work this color and it looks gorgeous on her, but I hate it on me. Can't digest the way it looks on me. Just eww. Definitely will not repurchase because it does not suit me. The color in the tube is gorgeous though. It does contain shimmer which is golden but it does not make your lips super glittery.
PS. I gave this product a 3/5 rating because I still think it is a gorgeous shade. I just wished it suited me.
