Hope all of you are enjoying your day! I am here to share my first NYX Simply Lip Cream today which is my first vampy shade as well. After getting tempted by looking at such shades all over the internet, I finally decided to sport one. To my surprise, I find it cool to wear such vampy shades once in a while, especially during winters. However, I am not sure if I like this particular NYX Lip Cream considering its slightly patchy finish on lips, but you will definitely find me wearing bolder vampy shade in upcoming winters. So, let’s read more about NYX Bewitching Simply Vamp Lip Cream today!

My Experience with NYX Bewitching Simply Vamp Lip Cream:
Well, the retractable pen packaging of this lip cream resembles a lot to various lip balms from drugstore brands like Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balms or L’Oreal Glossy Balms for reference! However, it is way more pigmented. It does have a synthetic smell which is not overpowering and faints after a while.
Coming over to the shade, “Bewitching” seems deep berry red to me which comes up way pigmented berry red with subtle gloss and translucency on my lips which transforms into semi-matte stain after a while. Probably, its translucent yet intensely pigmented color payoff makes it a wearable vampy shade for even lighter skin tones apart from being a perfect match for medium/dark skin tone beauties. It gives enough buildable coverage to hide lighter or deeper lip pigmentations.
I love how a gentle touch of lip cream imparts such rich color on lips though it tends to give slightly patchy finish on my normal dry lips once it dries to a stain. I mean it does have a tendency to sit on dry patches of our lips though it does not settle into the lip lines or lip contour. I think wearing a lip balm underneath this shade would help as the shade is not very hydrating; it won’t over dry your lips though! We cannot alone rely on this lip cream to get juicy and soft lips, especially people with dry lips are going to get disappointed with its patchy finish.
The wear time is pretty decent as it stays put with slight transfer for 5-6 hours, leaving behind a soft berry tint on lips after that, which looks fine on its own. My lips don’t feel hydrated when I have it on, though it does not accentuate my dry lips. But, it does cling to patchy area. Hence, an invigorating scrubbing and moisturizing session beforehand is recommended.
Over all, I won’t say that I am highly impressed with this shade, but then it did not disappoint me either. I won’t get this particular shade again, but I might try other shades from this range because I love the concept of lip creams. And, I hope other shades won’t give patchy pigmentation. Other than the patchy finish, I am fine with all other aspects of this lip cream, to be honest. I will definitely recommend everyone to try one of these shades.
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
Pros of NYX Bewitching Simply Vamp Lip Cream:
• A deep vampy berry red shade which is wearable for every skin tone
• Gives translucent, glossy yet intensely pigmented color payoff with just one swipe
• The shade gives a beautiful mini makeover without adding years to face
• Does not settle into lip lines nor does it bleed though scrubbing and using a lip balm underneath this would help to achieve great results
• It stays put for good 5-6 hours with slight transferring thereby fading into a subtle, berry tint
• Quite user friendly and travel friendly
Cons of NYX Bewitching Simply Vamp Lip Cream:
• The product is tricky for dry lips
• It tends to settle on dry patches of my lips often
• It is not an alternative to our lip balms
• Even on smooth lip surface the application becomes quite blotchy at times
• I did not find it very hydrating though it does not cause over drying of my lips either
Well, I guess deeper shades with semi-matte, glossy texture often tend to give uneven and blotchy application on lips. Whatsoever, I won’t get this shade again as it will last me a while though I am pretty interested to try other shades soon. They definitely deserve one try from every makeup junkie.

I am yet to try such shades Neetu. I also fear that it might make me look older. May be this winter I’ll try one such shade, after getting influenced by you all on IMBB. 😀
