4 NYC City Proof Lip Glosses-Review, Swatches

Cherry Everafter, Perpetually Hot Pink, Blush Forever,Everlasting Bloom

Hello IMBBians.

This is my first review on IMBB and I am very excited and nervous. :) I have been a silent reader of IMBB for a very long time now and the reviews, suggestions have been very helpful to me. Now-a-days I am very careful in choosing what I want to buy and always check for a review in IMBB first.
I have been planning to review a product for a while and finally found one of mine and I am sure many others’ favourites “lip gloss” .
4 NYC city proof Lip Glosses Review, Swatches

Im not much of a makeup person but one thing I absolutely cannot resist is makeup related to lips. Lip balms, lip colours and lip glosses. My mom and friends are quite surprised at the stock of lip balms I carry around. No matter where I go, which bag I use (I have got loads :D ) I have a lip balm in each and every nook and corner of the house. I have also got my office covered.

Getting back to the lip glosses, I got these from my sister who lives in the U.S. Her in-laws went to visit her recently and on their return I shamelessly asked for loads of gifts out of which these pretty ones where marked high priority.

Key ingredients:

Kokum butter, jojoba oil and antioxidants.

My Experience with NYC City Proof Lip Gloss:

I have used roll-on lip glosses before and never really preferred the one with the applicator but these lip glosses are very handy and travel friendly with sturdy packaging. I have got 4 different flavours in them, Perpetually Hot pink, Cherry Ever after, Everlasting Blossom and Blush forever.

Perpetually Hot Pink:

The back of the gloss has the number and how much it weighs and also the name. Coming back to the glosses, the colours are absolutely fantastic. Im not sure about the 8 Hr claim but I think these have a very good staying power and they don’t just vanish if you eat or drink once. The maximum staying power when I wore it to office was up to 6 hrs which is quite good for me and even after 6 hrs it still had the nice little shine on the lips which I loved.

They have a very nice fruity fragrance about them which is not too strong and quite pleasant. I absolutely adore Ever Lasting Blossom and Blush Forever because they are the perfect office wear (if ur a gloss using person ) or when you’re out with friends for a casual walk as they are not heavily tinted but gives your lips the lovely finish. You could use them on lip colours as well. When you apply them they glide on your lips very easily and don’t get clumpy at all.

Pros of NYC City Proof Lip Gloss:

• Good staying power upto 6 hrs. Can last upto 8 hrs if you count in the sheen left on the lips.
• Easy to apply with the applicator.
• Does not feel heavy on lips.
• Smell is not very strong and quite pleasant.
• Very travel friendly.
• Quite sturdy packaging so no leakage problems.

Cons of NYC City Proof Lip Gloss:

• Not available in India

IMBB Rating:

I would give it a 4.5/5. Since it’s such a good brand and they have got good products, it’s really unfortunate that it’s not available in India.
I would like to thank Rati and Sanjeev for this wonderful blog. Go IMBB !
