NYC-New York Color-Review

It's that time again....Review time!

*I recieved this NYC-Liquid Lipshine to review from Influenster. All opionions are my own and not influenced in any way. Go check out Influenster to see how you can recive products to review.*

NYC-Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City
I was pretty excited when I got this in my Voxbox, because I am a lipgloss junkie.
This is a nice nude shade, hence the name. It has pure pigments in it for a 3D gloss effect.
It also has Vitamin E in it so it moisturizes your lips.

The applicator was longer than any gloss I've ever used and it was really skinny. I just put it on my lips, pressed them together and swiped it on, otherwise it was a little awkward for my liking.

Swatched, it looks like a nice camel color.
On the lips, it sheers out and you get a hint of color with a shimmery effect. You can layer it with other glosses, or on top of lipstick, or wear it alone for a nice glossy look.
When I first tried it on I noticed it has a nice scent to it, I want to say caramel, but it might be vanilla.
To me, it smells like MAC's Studio Sculpt foundation, but MAC uses a vanilla scent, but to me it smells like caramel. LOL. So, use that as a reference.

I really, really, really, like the texture of this gloss. I found it to be very moisturizing and not sticky at all. It's more of a creamy gloss.
I actually found myself reaching for this when my lips felt dry and it lasted a couple of hours.

The best part about this gloss is that it's easily accesable and only costs about $2.49!
You can find it at stores like Target, Walmart, CVS, Rite-Aid, and Kmart.
It also comes in 10 different shades, if nude isn't your style, or you want color.

NYC also has products like nail polish, eyeshadow, and mascara.
You can check that out at their website if you're interested.

I give this an A.
The only con I can think of is the applicator, but it worked just fine.


  1. this sounds like a great gloss, and at a really good price

  2. I thought the same thing about the applicator. And also, a little "flimsy"? I don't know. But I do love the shade/smell! Can't wait for the Love VoxBox. oooh!

  3. Nice! I was really hoping I'd get one in my box, but I didn't!

  4. @CottonCandyInk-I've always seen NYC products, and tried some of their polishes, but always walked on by the glosses, they are actually really nice.

    @Hunter87- I do like this nude shade, you can never go wrong with a nude.

    @Natasha- Yes! I thought the applicator was flimsy, too. I'm excited for the Vday box as well.

    @habbott2- Awh, I thought all the boxes had the gloss...hmmm. It's a nice gloss for the price, and it smells yummy.

  5. Great review girl! I loved my sample. The first thing I noticed was the scent. Loved it. Plus it didn't feel sticky. My mom swiped mine! HaHaHa
