NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Red lip cream in Candy Apple

A brighter red than I would normally grab…but it was part of one of the sets that I picked up on deep discount, so it was nice to get this color when, otherwise, I might not be tempted to buy it. This has fuchsia tones, almost neon. This is definitely a late spring/high summer “fun” color for me. It is pretty saturated, but does require fairly frequent touch-ups because any smudging or fading is very obvious.
