VoxBox Review: NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City
In my 2011 Holiday VoxBox was this lip gloss: NYC Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City. At first, I'll admit - I wasn't thrilled about trying out another lip gloss. I tend to have trouble with drug-store brands that are glossy because they tend to be thick, sticky, and leave a waxy feeling that eventually dries on my lips. Boy was I surprised when I tried this out!
Application: This gloss comes with a standard doe-foot sponge applicator. Because the product is not too thick, a nice amount comes out on the applicator without making a mess all over the bottle. It glides on smoothly without needing to dip back into the bottle.
Color: The color is definitely a nude shade. It's sheer, but is visible on my lips. It can be worn alone, or over another color for a little more depth. I like to wear this over my Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee. The color is a perfect understated nude that works well with a slightly more dramatic eye look.
Lasting power is relatively normal to possibly above average. It doesn't dry out my lips or leave a build up. It's smooth and lightweight, with a light, pleasant fragrance.
The NYC Liquid Lipshine retails for less than 5 dollars at drugstores such as CVS. More information can be found at New York Color's website: http://www.newyorkcolor.com/products/lips/lipgloss/liquid-lipshine
