One of the products I received in my Influenster Holiday Voxbox was the NYC (New York Color) Liquid Lipshines in the color 'Nude York City'. NYC is a brand that has been around as far as I could remember, and as a teen, I loved their eyeliners and lipsticks. Many of those products that I loved in my youth are no longer sold, or maybe I just haven't looked much. Anyways, I received this new product to try out. According to the site:
"Straight from the city that never sleeps, NYC New York Color offers products with uptown style at down-to-earth prices, from $.99 - $4.99. The energy, style and color of New York City shines through the wide range of shades, textures and innovative products. NYC always delivers the most on-trend products & shades hot off the runway!"I have worn it for the past two days and I can say that I would love to get some more. The color is a bit sheer, which keeps it from being too nude for my highly pigmented lips.
"A beauty-editor favorite is Liquid Lipshine ($2.49). It has pure pigments that created a 3-D gloss effect. Vitamin E provides shine and a moisturizing feel. The formula is non-sticky, super shiny & soft. Available in 10 on-trend shades from neutral nudes, to berries & fuchsias. Start shopping for NYC at these stores nearest you: Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, Family Dollar, Duane Reade, Kmart, HEB, and others. Visit newyorkcolor.com to check out all shades and fun products from New York Color!"
The applicator is flexible and can hold a decent amount of product. It's also great for applying it right up against the lip line, making your lips look fuller.
The description above says the formula is non-sticky. I wouldn't say that though. I felt it wasn't as sticky as most others. I also found that the lipshine was heavy when applied to bare lips. It definitely helped to put a lip balm on.
