NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Red lip cream in Russian Roulette

Used by itself, it’s a brighter, more saturated red than I’m personally comfortable with…but I have a different definition of “killer red lipstick” than most people. The formula is on par with the other Simply Lip Creams, and - like all of the reds - this color does stain a little bit. I get the best use out of it by applying, blotting away almost everything but the stain, and putting on a sheer top gloss.
