Amsterdam is a lovely cherry red, though it is not over-the-top or very in your face.
Amsterdam is a lovely cherry red, though it is not over-the-top or very in your face. It applies evenly and wears pretty well, and I find that it does leave a bit of a stain behind after it wears off. If I want it to be a bolder, more pin-up red, I pair it with a red liner (like NYX Soft Matte liner in Cherry Skies.) It feels comfortable, but if worn often the Soft Mattes can dry the lips a little bit.
NYX's lip creams are probably my favorite makeup product, period.
NYX's lip creams are probably my favorite makeup product, period. Amsterdam has great color payoff and a comfortable, light texture. I've found that with any of the SMLCs, if you put a tacky layer of balm on before application, it saves your lips from a liquid lipstick-level of drying. However, I think this is a red more for warm-toned skin. The website describes this as a "pure red," which made me think it would turn out neutral on my lips. It's really more orangey, probably in the same color family as MAC's Lady Danger. Regardless, a fantastic product and beautiful color if you're down for bright, red-orange lipstick.

This colour is one of the most amazing reds I ever used.
This colour is one of the most amazing reds I ever used. I am a NC30-35 for reference. However, as mentioned earlier on this page, the lip cream comes with an user guide. You really have to layer the lip cream, because when first applied, it does not really have colour pay off. Let it dry for five minutes after the first application and than add another layer. It is stunning!
