Review/Swatches: NYC New York Color "Nude York City"

Hey everyone! If you didn't know already, I am helping test products for Influenster! Keep in mind that I received these products complimentary to test through Influenster's VoxBox program. All reviews are my honest opinions. No one is paying me and this post is not sponsored in any way. I am just lucky that I was one of the chosen few to be able to receive a 2011 Holiday VoxBox and be able to test out products that I have never had the chance to try yet. Plus I am just helping spread word about these wonderful products that I have been honored to get the chance to test.

I made a post over a week ago of all the great products that I received so I could test out and review (both here on Luuux and on my blog). In that post, I just have pictures and a list of all the products that I am very excited to try out.

I was lucky enough to receive NYC Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City 582. It is a gorgeous nude shade on the lips. I wouldn't really call the shade a true nude because it doesn't really nude out your lips and give you that dead lips look like a true nude lipgloss and/or lipstick. This is a perfect shade that goes with any look. You don't need a mirror to apply this because its a shade that is so easy to apply. Right now, there are 10 different shades ranging from neutral nudes to berries and fushcias. I definitely can't wait to try one in a pink shade! You can check out their other shades, if you click here:

Nude York City 582 is a shimmery shade. It does have shimmer but its very fine shimmer. You can't feel the shimmer on your lips, which I love. I hate lipglosses where I can feel the shimmer on my lips whenever I rub my lips together so I am glad that this isn't one of them. Plus I think the shimmer actually makes the lipgloss look better on my lips because its gives it that extra shine. Nude York City is a nude lipgloss but I wouldn't call it a true nude shade. It doesn't give you that dead lips look like other nude lipsticks and/or lipglosses. This is a nice nude shade that is perfect with any look. My lips are pretty pigmented so I really like how this shade makes my lips a shade lighter.

One of the things that I like most about this lipgloss is the applicator. It isn't your typical applicator like the kind that most lipglosses have but a thin, long flexible applicator. Its easily bendable, which is great because it can easily apply product onto your lips, especially onto the corners of your lips. I tried taking a close-up picture of the applictor but for some reason, my camera couldn't focus and all the pictures ended coming out blurry. Sorry!

This lipgloss gives my lips a gorgeous shine on my lips, because it has pure pigments that create a 3-D gloss effect. I love how it looks on my lips, especially when I go outside in the sun because it makes my lips more noticable. It also has vitamin e, which makes your lips shine while giving it a moisturizing feel. I really like the formula of this lipshine because its non-sticky, super shiny & soft on my lips. Its not sticky like other lipglosses but its enough to stay long on my lips while keeping it moisturized. This lipgloss doesn't slide around on my lips, which I love.

Also, it does a smell to it. I don't know what it smells like. I can't figure it out but to me, it smells like a delicious dessert. I really like the smell of this lipshine. I am not sure if the other shades have a smell to them or if different shades have different scents. The smell isn't overpowering. You can't smell it once its on your lips. The smell doesn't bother me at all. I actually like the smell of this lipshine because it smells so good.

WHERE: You can find these NYC Liquid Lipshines at Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, Family Dollar, Duane Reade, Kmart, HEB, and other stores.

PRICE: These lipshines retail for $2.49USD but prices might vary depending on the store.

I definitely recommend this lipgloss to anyone who loves lipglosses and/or loves trying out new products! This is a great product to have. I love how easily it is to apply onto my lips. I can easily put it on my lips, without needing a mirror, and I am out the door within seconds. I can't wait to try other products from NYC!
