This will be short. I LOVE these glosses. Go get you some! And goodbye!
New York Color says “Need a gloss that lasts as long as you do? Meet NYC’s new Up to 8HR City Proof Gloss. Its incredible formula offers high-shine and rich colorwith no sticky feel and serious staying power: up to 8 hours of wear! It also smoothens andconditions with kokum butter, jojoba oil and a host of good-for-you antioxidants.”
I do love these glosses. The NYC City Proof Extended Wear Lipgloss…that was long. I picked up:
- Nude At Night(limited edition)- Shimmer
- Always Sweet- Shimmer
- Tangerine Crush(limited edition)- No shimmer
- Cherry Ever After- Shimmer
These little gems are great. NYC claims that they wear for up to eight hours but….NO….they do not!!! The brighter/deeper colors last for maybe 3-4 hours. While the lighter colors go for about 2 hours.
I did notice that the shine did not last throughout the wear, but my lips still maintained some sheen without being shimmery and felt quite moist too. The texture is somewhat tacky but not sticky or uncomfortable, I’m not sure how to explain it, but I like it and I love the formula.
They tend to settle into lines if too much is applied. There is also shimmer present in most of the ones I have, but it’s definitely not over-the-top; very day time/work appropriate. The applicator is quite nice, not too big or small and doesn’t deposit too much or too little product.
The price is freakin’ AWESOME! They cost a little more than the Liquid LipShines, which I also love. And I find that this product, minus the “up to 8 hours” wear claim, compares to other mid-high end brands.
I say give these glosses a try, I’m pretty sure you’ll love them too! The price, color range, and feel of these won’t disappoint!
