This is my favorite red lipstick of all time. I've always had a hard time finding the perfect red lippie because of my dark skin. Most of the reds I've encountered have too much orange and I hate that! I recently came to the realization that I need a blue red lippie. Then I found this one and it's perfect. This is a very sexy color and I feel sexy wearing it! This is the red lippie I reach for the most even though I have other reds I enjoy wearing also. I love the way it brightens up my face! I always look forward to wearing this lippie!
I got this looking for a bright pinkish red and boy is it!! It's bright and looks great on my cool skin tone..reds turn orangey on me if I'm not careful, but this is great!! It turns pretty red on me with a a pink undertone...the texture is a little weird though, really creamy but it doesn't stay very well and I wish it was matte..I tried this in anticipation of RiRi Woo and Im pleased so I will definitely be purchasing that when it comes out...I'm still undecided about Nyx lipstick :-/
This is a gorgeous, vampy red lipstick that is moisturizing and affordable. Staying power is so-so, but I always anticipate reapplying lipstick throughout the day anyway, so to me it's not that big of an issue. Took off a lippy because there are higher-quality lipsticks out there--ones with richer consistency, better smells/tastes (this one doesn't have a taste or smell), and just feel more luxurious on the lips... but if you plan on doing bright, bold red lips only every so often, this lipstick will do just the trick at a very good price.
I'm a big fan of NYX makeup, although I've recently discovered that their lipstick is awful! First off, I love red lipstick, and so I bought this. My first complaint is with this; the colour of the product does not match the bullet at all, and I was highly disappointed, since as a fair-skinned blonde, this colour makes me look like a vampire. (If I had been the same colour it was advertised as, I wouldn't have.) My second issue was with the staying power, since I did opt to giving it one more try although I immediately wasn't a fan of the colour, and there's no other way to describe the way it stays on than to say that it doesn't. You don't have to be eating or drinking -- talking or licking your lips will take it off, which is infinitely frustrating when after a decent conversation, you have to reapply your lipstick. It also feels "slimy" when you're wearing it. Despite this, however, if your lips are even the slightest bit chapped, it seems to "sink" into your lips and make an end product that's not aesthetically appealing. As a side effect of the "slimy" aspect -- I'm assuming -- it breaks very easily. I didn't continue to use it just after deciding the colour wasn't for me, although I did hand it over to my sister, who is dark-haired and is more of a fan of the "vampy" look. She used it for a week and simultaneously complained about it's "sliding", and after that week was up, the actual lipstick broke. I was pretty disappointed, and I wouldn't recommend this to anyone -- colour or brand!
I have 3 of NYX round lipsticks. I love the formula and texture. They feel like a high end lipstick without the price tag. This color is a beautiful old hollywood red. It has great pigmentation. It stays on for awhile and as the perfect finish, It isn't matte but it isn't shiny either. I had wanted to get Chanel Pirate lipstick but when I swatched the two side by side I see any difference.
a pinkish blackish red colour, defnitely love for this one, another vampy colour and it looks great, it is bold but not too much at the same time and also great price too :D
although not a fan of the packaging, looks too simple, but i never really get attracted on the packaging :P
I'm pale with red hair and always have a hard time with red lipstick. I need something good for my pale skin, but also something that is not so matchy-matchy with my hair color. This is a beautiful blueish-red and goes on very smooth. It definitely comes off on cups, but it doesn't appear to disappear from my lips for at least 5 hours. My first NYX products, can't wait to try more.
Wowie! A dark red-fuschia with a tiny amount of glitter, this is an attention-grabbing color on anyone. I'm incredibly pale with pink-toned skin and I find this blue-based red to go well with my coloring. I have edited my review since I found that using the Plush Red lip pencil from NYX underneath it makes the color pop without adding more layers.
These lipsticks do tend to be really creamy, so the lip pencil is required if you don't want to layer the lipstick over and over and risk having it smear over the lip line. Luckily, these lipsticks are very moisturizing for my dry lips and the smell/taste is pleasant. Highly recommended.
This when on this looks more like fuchsia than straight red.I find that I have to pat this on my lips otherwise it is too much for my light skin.The more thick of a coat you put the more it look red.I say find a place with real swatches don't go off of the computer generated ones.If i had i probably won't have chosen this color.
The formula seems moisturizing but I find that this formula comes off quickly.
Given that on ebay you can get these for like 2 dollars each I say worth a try since the range of colors that they have is huge.
I love this color against my skin tone. I think its the perfect red for me. Its really smooth and glides on nicely.
