Red, Red and more Red – NYX ‘Eros’ Lipstick
When it comes to lipsticks I have a teeny tiny obsession with anything red. I was doing a bit of make up organising this morning (great way to spend a Sunday morning) and every other lipstick was red. Matte reds, glossy reds, old reds, new reds…you name it, I probably had it! I seriously can’t get enough of them!
To liven up what is turning out to be a very drab and rainy day, here is one of my newest and brightest reds. The very daring ‘Eros’ by NYX.
As with most NYX Round Lipsticks Eros is really highly pigmented and has great colour pay off.
Red lipsticks are often the worst offenders when it comes to being drying, but this applies very smoothly and has a really soft creamy texture.
The colour is definitely not for shy retiring wallflower types. It’s like a shining beacon that will stand out for miles. It’s a very very bright fire engine red with a slightly orange undertone.
You probably can’t pick it out in the picture but it the slightest hit of golden shimmer in it. I usually avoid shimmery lipsticks like the plague, but this is so subtle that it’s barely even noticeable. In fact I didn’t even notice until I had a really good look in the mirror.
All in all I’d say that this is a great addition to my ever growing collection and costing only a couple of pounds it’s great value for money. It’s not a red that I’d wear every day, but it’s a good one for a night out when I want something a bit brighter.
What do you think about rockin those red lips? Are you a red fanatic like me or is it something you only reserve for special occasions?
