NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Vamp lip cream in Covet

When I got my first set of these lip creams, it contained She Devil. Based solely on this color, I didn’t think I would like the “vampy” shades that much. They were just too dark and a little too saturated for my preferences.

Then I saw swatches online of Covet. Okay, I said. Maybe one of these shades will look good on me.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the lip color in the tube; top right, the color applied over bare skin, to better show the shade; and below, the color applied to the lips.

I think Covet is the only near-metallic finish in the entire lineup. It’s metallic enough to give a hint of shimmer, but not an overtly visible, hard metallic. The shade is a rich maroon that’s dark enough to qualify as “vampy” but not so dark that it overwhelms my face and the rest of my makeup, when I wear it. This and Aphrodisiac are the two “vampy” shades in this lineup that I’ve fallen in love with.
