Since we were just talking about red lips I’m gonna keep the discussion going with a new red gloss that’s been growing on me. Now you know I don’t really do red lipstick but I really didn’t do red gloss. When I think of red lips I always think crisp, clean and matte. Red gloss always felt too ‘lax and messy for the effortlessly sexy vibe red lips give off. That is, until I came across the NYX Apple Crisp Intense Butter Gloss.
I’m still not rushing to toss it in my makeup bag or anything but I have to admit that I kinda dig Apple Crisp on me. It’s cute! Apple Crisp is a bright, vibrant tomato red with a cool blue undertone and sweet cake-like scent. The shade has more of a classic red kinda feel but the juicy, glossy finish makes it seem less uptight and more fun and flirty. I’d say Apple Crisp is a great red gloss for spring and summer!
Not just because it’s cute. But because it’s rather easy to wear too! Apple Crisp applies smoothly and evenly with intense pigmentation and a slightly thick, creamy texture that doesn’t feel heavy or sticky. It is a little tacky but the formula is also lightly moisturizing so it’s actually quite comfortable to wear.
Apple Crisp wears pretty nicely too. The color doesn’t emphasize flakes or settle into lip lines much at all. And thanks to the thicker formula I didn’t experience any bleeding or feathering either. Apple Crisp wears like a champ for around 3-5 hours before fading into an intense bright red stain that likes to hang around for an hour or two. I’m still not all that crazy about red gloss but I can’t deny that NYX Apple Crisp Intense Butter Gloss is a great lippie to have. If you’re a red lip junkie I’d say run, don’t walk to your nearest Ulta or Target to get your hands on this red beauty!
