NYX Apple Crisp Intense Butter Gloss

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.
