NYC New York Color | Nude York City

I have been looking for a good nude lip gloss and it’s really a hit or miss ordeal for me. All nudes are not the same nor do they all mesh with every skin tone. I love NYC (New York Color) products and was able to try their Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City which was included in my Holiday Voxbox 2011 courtesy of Influenster.

My take: NYC Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City has shimmer and smells a bit like Vanilla to me. The consistency is not sticky at all as it glides on with ease. For me, it lasted about 4 hours until I wiped it off to change my look for an outing. I did have a bit of trouble getting a good amount of product onto the applicator upon first opening. I quickly resolved that by tilting the bottle upside down, twisting the cap a few times and then removing the applicator. It has not been an issue since then, I simply open and use.

A bit of trouble with the applicator at first but now all is well.

The color is rather sheer with just the right amount of shine for my liking. I find that I can wear Nude York City alone or pair it with a lipstick and it compliments it well. I like it over my peachy nude or berry colored lipsticks when I want to tone the shades down for a daytime look. My top lip is brown and my bottom very pink so nude shades just softens that a bit. When I want a truly nude look I fill both lips with nude lip liner before applying lip gloss or color. Personally I like my natural lip color so I tend to wear Nude York City on bare lips.

Overall I am really happy with Nude York City and I am pretty stoked to try more shades of NYC Liquid Lipshine. The price point is great at just $2.49 retail so I’d love to snag Wine N Dine, Honey On The Hudson, Brighton Beach Peach and Big Apple Spice. How cute are those names?! Adorable. In my opinion it’s a great drugstore makeup item and when it comes to lip gloss, that’s something I rarely say!

        @Mina Slater Thank you. You would only recommend to wear this with peach and nude lip colours? Have you tried with others?
