Spotlight: NYC New York Color

I recently received an NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox. Now, if you follow my blog you know I'm not obsessed with drugstore makeup brands, but I can appreciate a good drugstore product when one comes along.

I have quite a collection of lip products and it seems as though I've been purchasing a lot of reds, pinks, and nudes! I think the nude choice shocks me because I'm such a fan of color on lips. I was kind of amused that I received none other than a nude shade for my NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine in my box!

Ironically, this shade looks almost identical to several I already own by companies like MAC, Stila, Anastasia, etc.

First Impression
For those of you that mind sticky lip gloss (I actually don't care either way), you may want to try this if you're looking for a drugstore lip gloss in a trendy color because it's pretty smooth. I'm impressed by close in hue this is to higher-end glosses I already own. 

Product Details
Liquid Lipshine retails for $2.49 (I almost choked when I saw how cheap it is!). It's said to create a 3D effect on your lips like many of the other glosses being released lately. I love that it includes vitamin E, especially because winters are so drying here in New England, and I'm interested to see the other shades--there are 10 of them in total. NYC New York Color is carried by most drugstores and superstores like Target as well as on the company's site,

Final Thoughts   
With such a low price tag, I can see why I've seen other beauty bloggers mentioning NYC New York Color before as a favorite drugstore brand. While I'm definitely not planning to trade out all of my high-end lip glosses for drugstore glosses, I am open to checking out some of the more flashy colors NYC New York Color has to offer.

Have you tried Liquid Lipshine before? What did you think?


  1. Yes, I got this in my vox Box as well. I love it! and I think that it can be a perfect nude for a lot of different skin tones.

  2. I agree! I guess I'm kind of lucky because I'm olive complected and have a neutral undertone so almost all colors work on me, but it makes it hard to judge how things will look on others at times :)
