NYX Simply Nude Lip Cream | Sable : Review and Pictures

NYX Nude Lipstick
Best MLBB Lipstick
Best Everyday Work/College Lipstick

Why do we wear lip balms? To add a bit of color and shine to the natural lips. While most of the girls are satisfied with a just a lip balm for everyday wear, I beg to differ. Since I am not a simple girl in terms of makeup, I like to keep it slightly dressy even on my dull days. I was always in search of something which could be my lips best friend every time I wanted it. Though I dodnt want a dramatic over the top color, but something to make my lips natural yet desirable, If you know what I mean . I stumbled upon this range of NYX Simply Nude-Sable.

NYX Nude Lip Crayon

My Opinion on NYX Simply Nude Lip Cream

I had bought this from Nykaa and I saw very few shades from the nude range. As luck would have it, only this shade was available, I was skeptical. But nevertheless, the 1500/- plus NYX SMLC offer was reason enough to go for it.

These are packed in a retractable lip crayon form. The lid however is major disappointment. I hate it; it just doesn’t shut and is very loose. Not sure if it’s the case with the packaging or just this piece. I hope the latter. The shade name and other details are mentioned on the body including the list of ingredients. Well done NYX.

The shade is nude with warm pink undertones, just what I wanted for daily wear. This is amazing all by itself, but great as a base too. I apply it under a bold color lipstick to tone it down according to my mood. When I want my dark pigmented lips to be best hidden, I choose to wear this light weight nude shade. Having said that, I am NC 35 and it suits me well, but it looks like it will wash out NC 40 and above. You can try other shades a in the range which are warmer to suit the NC 42 skintone.

The finish is creamy as the name suggests. It doesn’t make my lips dry but moisturized. It sets to semi matte finish in a few minutes. Surprisingly this doesn’t bleed or make a fuss. It looks ever natural and perfect to give that “No Makeup Look”. I would love to carry it with me daily to work, but I cant due to its loose cap.

The pigmentation is bang on for an everyday lip color. The color stays on me for a maximum of 2 hours and it fades (blame my thin lips) but it leaves an even tint behind.
