Shade– The shade Classic Red, as the name suggest is a lovely deep strawberry red shade. It looks very bright in the swatch and comes out to be an intense deep red shade. Initially it is more of a strawberry shade and after a while fades to look more of a raspberry shade.  Well, that may be because of the lip pigmentation I have. I keep it applying when it fades as I like the strawberry red hue more than the raspberry.

Texture-The lip gloss has an optimum consistency and is a little sticky on the lips, but it is not bothering at all.

My Experience with NYX Cosmetics Lip Gloss Classic Red

Since I have lip pigmentation on the corners of my lips, I try to use opaque lip shade more so as to hide the dark lips. Usually lip glosses are quite sheer and don’t hide the pigmentation completely, but I found three shade in this set of 5 lip glosses which are highly pigmented and hide the dark lips beneath the gloss.

Classic red is a lovely lip gloss with a deep matte finish and is quite opaque. However after a while the color tends to lighten which makes the lip pigmentation clearly visible.

But the shade is undoubtedly pretty so I don’t mind applying it again to retain the strawberry red shade on the lips.

This shade is going to suit most skin tones and one can apply it on top of a vibrant red lipstick as well to give the glossy finish to the pout.

Staying power is between 2-3 hours without eating or drinking. You will need touch ups in between if you are wearing it for long hours.

What I don’t like about NYX Cosmetics Lip Gloss Classic Red?
