NYC New York Color Cosmetics Expert Last Lip Lacquer Review & Swatches
Wednesday, September 30, 2015
PR Sample - Hey everybody! I received samples of NYC (New York Colors) NEW Expert Last Lip Lacquer ($3.99). Liquid lipsticks are very popular right now and these promise intense rich color, long lasting & high coverage and a lightweight texture. So what are my thoughts? Read below.
NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Lacquer in Chelsea Cherry Blossoms - Not Sweet
I've been through enough lipsticks and lip glosses in my lifetime to know MILKY PINKS are hard to pull off! So this isn't the first brand to struggle with them. First, this color will not work for every skin tone (that includes me LOL). Secondly, the formula is patchy. I always use a lip scrub (Sara Happ). I always moisturize my lips (Fresh Lip Balm). This shade settled into my fine lines. After wearing it for a couple of hours, it got gummy. So I wouldn't recommend this shade to anyone.
NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Lacquer in Lincoln Square Love Affair - Sweet
The formula for this pink lip lacquer and the one's below applied MUCH better! That makes me conclude the darker colors apply better than the lighter ones. So think about that, if you purchase these. This pink was a little bolder than what I expected. The color is ok on me, but I think it would look better on another skin tone. This laid beautifully on my lips. It felt good on my lips. It was very lightweight. Long lasting? If you start eating and drinking, expect to reapply.
NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Lacquer in Tribeca Mocha - Sweet
Tribeca Mocha applied very well to my lips. The color applied evenly. What I liked about the last three, was how moisturizing all of them were! Excellent color pay off and coverage. They also have a fabulous shine to them. Again, I wasn't particularly fond of this color on me. Some browns (muddy browns) bring me down (like this one) and others lift me up (example Bobbi Brown HERE). Do you see the difference?
NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Lacquer in Turtle Bay Toffee - Supersweet
Loved this one! Turtle Bay Toffee is a brown, but with a hint of red in it. I really liked it and thought it complimented me. Like the two before, great even coverage...bold color...moisturizing and amazing shine.
In summary, the formula for most of these were really good! I would stick with the darker colors or darker pinks. The lighter colors seem to settle into fine lines and can be patchy on the lips. Colors may also be an issue! So take that into account when selecting a shade. Some shades will only work on some skin tones. The packaging is really nice! The doe foot applicator is soft and I love the sturdy clear casing this lip laquer is in. Let me know your thoughts! The WINNER of the Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield is Karen Tsang (Canada). Congratulations Karen! I've sent you an email. Enjoy!
