After searching high and low for the NYX Simply Vamp ($6.50) collection with no success, I decided to swing by my local Ulta again with my fingers crossed that their empty display from last week had been restocked. Enamored was the one shade that I wanted most and much to my surprise, the display had one single, solitary Simply Vamp Lip Cream in it and it was Enamored!
Packaging: Jumbo lip pencil style packaging that twists up. The cap snaps into place and feels reasonably sturdy but I wish it “locked” just a little tighter. One of those clear plastic caps that has a reputation for cracking so my fingers are crossed! 7/10
Longevity: This product tends to fade in the center of and corners of my mouth. You’ll probably need to reapply this after eating or drinking. 7/10
Application: I think the jumbo lip pencil style makes it easy to actually apply it to your lips but it can be just a tad patchy. 8/10
Texture: On your lips the texture feels almost matte but doesn’t feel too drying. 8/10
NYX Simply Vamp Enamored is a really gorgeous, unique color that I definitely don’t have anything similar to in my collection. So what color is Enamored, really? I’m not exactly sure. Something between a burgundy, a plum and a brown and it seems to shift a little in different lighting. When on the lips it looks like it has a metallic finish but in the swatches, and sometimes in just the right lighting or angle, you can see little tiny flecks of glitter in it. Whatever color it is, it’s beautiful!
Now just to get my hands on Temptress…
