NYC New York Color

nycOnce again, I love Influenster! In December I received my second Vox Box full of great new products to try out. One of my favorite products this time around was the NYC New York Color lip gloss. I'm a lip gloss lover, so this was right up my alley. I like to use it plain or on top of a regular lipstick for a little something extra.

I received a complimentary tube of Nude York City Liquid Lipshine. My very first impression was the smell. Oh my goodness, it really smells delicious. The color is versatile and would be perfect for any skin tone. My lips are rather pink naturally, so used alone, this color adds more shine than anything else, with just a hint of color. Shine and a hint of color is just what I'm looking for in a daytime lip color, so I use it often. The applicator doesn't feel very firm when applying the gloss, it feels a bit flimsy and flexible. Maybe that helps the gloss go on nicely, but I would suggest being a little careful with it, as it is kind of delicate. I've tried several different types of lip gloss, and I would say that NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine is definitely less sticky and goopy than others that I've used. It lasts a reasonable amount of time, but does need to be reapplied regularly, as that is simply the nature of lip gloss. But it smells good, looks good, and feels good so I have no complaints whatsoever! I would love to try some other colors.

Liquid Lipshine sells for $2.49 and is available in 10 shades. NYC New York Color products can be found at Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, Family Dollar, Duane Reade, Kmart, and HEB. Thanks to Influenster and NYC New York Color for providing me with this great product to test!

I TOTALLY agree with you about the scent! It smells just like cupcakes. I have to stop myself from licking it all off! :)

I sort of don't want to since you're obviously from THAT state (Go BUCKS! :-P), but your blog is really great, so I guess I'll follow. *sigh*

Check out my blog too if you get the chance!
