Review|NYX LipCream in Absolute Red

Tuesday, 30 December 2014  at 9:45 pm
What pops into everyone's mind when the words "New Years Eve" are either muttered by your friends or significant other? For me New Years Eve is a sexy red lip, an outfit that accentuates everything in the right places with good food and company! With that being said, I bring forth the perfect shade of red for anyone wanting to plant that perfect lip stained kiss for New Years Eve. I hope you enjoy tonight's post! :)


I bought NYX's lipcream at Clicks (can't remember the price) and I haven't seen it sold anywhere in S.A. I know that I usually include a second and first coat but the lipcream has so much pigment in it that it's technically not possible to do a first coat (There will be no difference between the first and second coat). You guys know that I'm not picky when it comes to packaging and I never describe packaging or anything like that. But I do appreciate a good doe foot applicator and this product definitely has it. I love the consistency of the lipcream because it doesn't feel as drying as lipstick and as "wet" as a lipgloss.
I have one coat of Absolute Red on my lips and as you can see it's super pigmented! For anyone that has dry lips I didn't experience any drying for the period that I wore the product. But I can't comment yet on the staying power of it because 1. the color is overpowering and for me can't be worn as a casual daytime look without looking like someone that works at night (at the corner) and 2. I did these swatches just before I left for my home-town. I do have one grip however it can smudge everywhere, so my teeth had to be feverishly checked everytime I took a picture for fear of red smears (that sounds gross) on my teeth.
I swatched all the (I think) non-matte lipcreams (there's a matte and gloss lipcream) in the NYX range that I could find at the cosmetic store. The "uh, what" swatch is a shade I have no idea what it is or how it even got there, I knew I should have named each swatch the minute I got home! But hopefully this will give you an idea as to what the rest of the range looks like.

Till we meet again!
Bye Bye!
And have a good New Year!
