My apologies for this late review on the NYX Simply Red Lip Cream pencil in shade Leading Lady. I certainly don't need another lipstick but fell in love with this really gorgeous blue-red shade from the new Simply Red collection when I was picking up a couple of the new NYX skin luminizers. I'll be reviewing those soon.
A classic red pout never goes out of style! Our Simply Red Lip Cream collection gives you loads of color options varying from deep, bright or pure red that you can’t go wrong with. How to use: Apply to clean lips. Wear over liner or primer for long–lasting wear.
Formula: Leading Lady (shown above) is a deep berry red with blue undertone. This is one of the bluest red tone colors I have come across and it's simply gorgeous. The formula is creamy and glides on smooth. It's actually rather creamy and bleeds somewhat so you'll need to apply a base and lip-liner first. The wear time is several hours and when the color starts to fade it leaves a lovely stain on the lips. Another issue that I have with these particular pencils from NYX are the size. They're clumsy to maneuver on the lips and it's hard finding a large sharpener that fits. Other than that they're really good creamy lipsticks at an affordable price. Who loves a bold dramatic red lipstick? Stay Beautiful! XOXO
