NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine Review

Many of you already know that I'm an active Influenster member.  If you're not sure what Influenster is feel free to check out my blog post here or just go ahead and visit their site!

I recently received my second VoxBox and and going to be reviewing a couple of the products over the next week or so.

In time for the holiday season, Influenster sent out Holiday VoxBoxes to several of its members.  One product that was included was New York Color's Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City.

NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine

As you can see it looks like an opaque brown, which turned me off at first, but once I applied it I was pleasantly surprised by the color.  It's sheer and shimmery and exactly what I love in a lip gloss!

I kind of associated NYC products as a cheap drug store brand of make up and didn't really look beyond their nail polish so I was a little apprehensive about what kind of quality I was going to be getting with this product.  Again, I was pleasantly surprised as this lip gloss is not sticky, has a nice fragrance and makes my lips feel soft even after the gloss has worn off (I've tried some glosses that are actually drying).  

The only downside to this product is that the gloss doesn't seem to last very long so I find that I reapply frequently and I also am not overly thrilled with the wand.  The wand is really flexible which to me makes me feel like I don't have as good control over it as I'd like (it almost feels like the gloss is going beyond my lips).

All in all I feel as though I've tried many lip glosses of all prices and brands and I think I would rank this towards the top.  It was comparable (and in some cases better) to the department/specialty store brands at a fraction of the price.  I will definitely be taking a closer look at the NYC displays when looking to purchase make up in the future.

New York Color products can be found at CVS, Rite Aid, Target, Wal*Mart and other popular stores and range from $.99-$4.99.  I received this product complimentary to test through Influenster's VoxBox program.  Interested in being an Influenster?  Go to their website and sign up for your own free account!
