Rs. 500/- for 3g




How to use?

The Lip Cream comes in a pencil form with a plastic cap and the texture is super-duper creamy. My only complaint was that with the hot weather we have in India, the lipstick seems to slowly melt. Mine came detached and I hold a grudge against online shopping now. But even broken, it was super easy to apply this lipstick.

It’s a bit difficult to line the lips with how thick the tip of the lipstick it. I’ll have to use a liner before I fill in with this lipstick. And the color is DARK.

My experience with NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream Temptress


I bought the color Temptress because I loved the name. Being the practicing feminist that I am, I love such names that feel powerful to women and just because I wanted to vamp up my look, I chose to go with the Simply Vamp collection.

The color is highly pigmented and I noticed after removal that it leaves a tint of pink behind. My lips looked like I’d applied two colors one over the other.

My other complaint is that this color is a very statement color and one cannot pull it off without being called ‘Goth’ or ‘vamp’. It’s a dark pigmented color, leaning on the side of black. NYX itself names it as ‘Deep Royal Purple’.

I bought this color because I love making a statement with my lip color but I don’t know how the Indian audience will react to such a color.

To each their own though.

Overall would I repurchase and recommend?

I would repurchase NYX Cosmetics in my sleep. And I would also recommend this range. If Simply Vamp doesn’t do it for you, you can choose Simply Reds, Pinks or Nudes.
