Review: NYC New York Color Liquid Lip Shine

12 Jan

I’m sure all of us makeup junkies have tried an NYC product at least once in our lives, right? It’s one of the most affordable cosmetic lines at your local drugstore. And most of the time, their products are very comparable to some high-end lines. I can count at least 10 of my friends who swear by NYC Sunny Bronzer (you probably can too!).

We all know the bronzer rocks, but there’s a new kid on the block that you’ve got to try. NYC recently launched a brand new lip product called Liquid Lip Shine, and it’s quickly become one of my favorite budget glosses. My lips are incredibly picky about what I put on them. The formula has to sit on the lip comfortably and be completely non-irritating or I can’t wear it. I can’t wear many budget glosses for this reason, but the Liquid Lip Shine gives me no lip irritation whatsoever.

It’s a translucent formula that lets your natural lip pigment shine through, making it a perfect daytime gloss for the office or school. The shade I have is called Nude York City, which (not to state the obvious here) is a nice, natural nude with a hint of sparkle. They have 10 shades ranging from pinks to plums, check them out on the NYC website:

The gloss is very light-reflecting and makes your lips look plump and hydrated. It comes with an extra long doefoot applicator which glides sooo smoothly over the lip. Because of the long length of the applicator, you get just the right amount of gloss on first application. No need to dip back into the tube. It’s not sticky whatsoever, it has more of a creamy texture. I can’t pinpoint the taste exactly, but I like it! It’s not fruity or flavored, but the taste is nice lol. One downside for some people is that this product uses paraben preservatives. Some care, some don’t. It’s really a personal preference. Parabens don’t really bother me much anymore (especially in drugstore items).

See how the light just bounces right off of the gloss? Love it! Oh and the best part? You can pick this up for about $2.49 depending on the store. You could pick up every color and barely dent the pocket book :) That’s why I love NYC!

Disclaimer: I received this product for free in my Holiday Voxbox from Influenster. All of my reviews are 100% honest :)
