Sometimes you just want a bold lip, but you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg! I had seen the NYX Simply Vamp Lip Creams, but didn’t pull the trigger on these beauties until I saw the sets at Ulta. These retail individually for around $6.49, but the holiday sets are $5.99 for 3 shades. Each set also has a shade of the Simply Red Lip Creams and one set has one of the Simply Nude shades. I also grabbed a Soft Matte Lip Cream in the cult favorite shade “Transylvania.” Seven shades for under $20? OK!
Set 1: Simply Red “Leading Lady,” Simply Vamp “Temptress,” and Simply Vamp “She Devil.” Set 2: Simply Nude “Fairest,” Simply Red “Marachino,” and Simply Vamp “Bewitching.” Laying across the top of the boxes but hard to see, the dark vampy wine plum shade of Soft Matte Lip Cream “Transylvania.”
These pencils are in a plastic casing and do not need to be sharpened. They roll up by twisting the base. Fabulous – no wasted product! They are creamy and not drying, as far as I can tell – I have just worn one shade, Bewitching. It dried down to a satin matte that wears for many hours, though it did transfer onto my coffee mug when I drank. That’s ok…we are all used to my “marked mugs” around here!
What do you think? This is NYX Simply Vamp in “Bewitching.”
