N.Y.C. Liquid Lip Shine Review

This is one of the items I received in my VoxBox! Keep in mind that yes, I got it for free, but all reviews I do on this blog will be honest and unbiased. Moving on... The lipgloss is named Nude York City. The name reminds me of something OPI would use as a name. ;)

"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!

     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.

 The gloss is a peachy nude with very subtle microshimmer. It looks like a very tame version of NARS Orgasm. Alot of glosses *ahem, MAC* are very sticky and thick. These do last longer, but I don't always like globbing pounds of colored petroleum jelly on my lips. The formula on the NYC gloss is a good consistency, not too thick but not greasy. It's super sheer and would be good for any skintone.

One last note on these: the applicator is awesome! It's very similar to the Tokidoki lipglosses. The little brush isn't a normal doe foot applicator. It's a little rubber spatula covered in the same material as a doe foot. I'm really liking it due to its flexibility. Have you tried this one before?
Overall, I like it. I'd pay full price for it, considering full price is super cheap for NYC. Definitely a hidden drugstore treasure over here! You can find it at
