Greetings to all who are pro red pout!!!
I have, till past few weeks, stayed away from all shades of red like the plague for obvious reasons:
- It’s too bold and outlandish for Indian society.
- People stare.
- Might look out of place or downright obscene on Indian skin.
- People might get the wrong signal.
Please beware; all the above mentioned pointers are absolutely ridiculous and asinine. Don’t ever avoid shades of red or crimson rather avoid the above mentioned notions like the plague.
Below is my tryst with my new found love with red.
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.

My Experience with NYX Simply Red Lip Cream Russian Roulette:
One of my dear friend suggested that I should try red lip color and without a second thought I brushed his suggestion aside with a peeved laughter. But then he reasoned with me that red looks gorgeous on both fair and tan skinned beauties and then he went on to give examples of actresses like Deepika and Bipasha who pull off red with such ease and grace.
This got me thinking, but I was reluctant to try till he dragged me to the local Ulta store and made me try a few red lip colors and to my surprise it did look nice. Yes, I was self conscious but I had to admit, it made me look pretty with no undertones of a degenerate person. That trial in Ulta burst my bubble of this myth and misconception and I went on to buy this product and another pretty red shade in Rimmel.
This product is available in four broad categories with 6 shades in each genre (Total of 24 shades): Simply Red, Simply N*de, Simply Pink and Simply Vamp. All these shades are to-die-for and worth trying. Among all these genres one can find almost any color one is looking for, also they cater to all skin tones.
The texture is super creamy and easy to apply. Since it is a dark shade I apply gingerly and build it up till I get a neat pout. It gives a brilliant shade of red with undertones of blue and looks gorgeous on my face; how do I know this?, you may ask, well, I asked my guy friends for their opinion and they told me so.
It is not super buttery, so one might have to use a lip balm underneath, but apart from this one is good to go for at least 7-8 hour even with meals thrown in between.
This is my first time attaching my selfie with a review!!!
