How are you doing today? Well, Central and East Coast people are enjoying fluffy pink snowfall (as I can read their Facebook status updates :P), while we (West Coast people) are just dreaming of snowfall. Well, it’s a cloudy and dark morning, I don’t even feel like doing anything except IMBB 😉 My baby is still snoring and snuggling in warm blanket while I am cozy in my warmer with a hot mug of tea, playing hide and seek with mighty sun from my patio. Suddenly, it feels like the spirit of Christmas is in the air, and I am so tempted to make X-Mas tree and bake yummy fluffy cake! Moreover, my hubby also celebrates his birthday on 25th of December, so we are eagerly waiting for Christmas, as Aadya and mum are all set to surprise him this time! Shhh..let it be a secret till Christmas arrives 🙂 By the way, let me also tell you about today’s product, which belongs to my MIL. It’s a beautiful, slightly shimmery, lavender mixed pink lipstick from NYC Ultra Last Lip Wear range namely named Flirty.

These gorgeous lipsticks come in slightly clumsy black plastic case with transparent cap.

It might be travel friendly as my MIL took it back to Delhi a few months ago and she says it is doing fine 😛
My Experience with New York Color Ultra Last Lip Wear Lipstick – Flirty:
As I mentioned earlier, we are already loving these dirt cheap NYC lipsticks for their color payoff and staying power. This was bought by my MIL as she was keen to try each and every stuff from this drugstore brand. Did I tell you purple is her favourite color and she has a soft corner for lavenders, no matter the occasion or stuff. Needless to say, her wardrobe is always full of purple stuff. She also gifted me purple stuff, even otherwise there has been a touch of purple in all her gifts post wedding. She even planned a lavender theme for our wedding reception, but thankfully, my reception outfit was already finalized and I wore my favourite red saree. However, she wore lavender banarasi silk saree that day and my hubby’s tie was matching with her lavender outfit rather than my red attire 😛 I remember one of our well wishers immediately advised my hubby that his outfit should match his better halve’s rather than mommy post wedding 😉 I hope she took it on the lighter side and did not eat up that guy afterwards. Anyway, enough of my blabbering! I don’t know why I am always excited whenever my wedding month approaches near! Let’s move onto this lavender pink lipstick.
As the name suggests – “Flirty” is an apt shade for all college gals and office-going gals. It is a very vibrant frosty pink shade which looks very appealing on dusky and medium skin tones especially. It gives lavender pinkish pigmentation to lips with slight shimmer finishing which is not OTT, I am telling you! It does have medium coverage on lips hence suitable for pigmented or tanned lips as well. My MIL took it for its frosty lavender mixed pink shade as she thinks it will go well with all of her purple outfits 😛 I loved this shade in bullet, but on my lips it is average, so I am not a big fan of “Flirty” honestly, but my MIL loves it and she gracefully pulls it off, so it is but natural for her to go gaga!
Secondly, the texture is very creamy like ultra moist lip wear, they only differ in packaging, rest their color payoff and texture seems same like that of Ultra Moist Lip Wear more or less! However, the staying power is 6-8 hours with heavy meals and snacking which is true to its claim. I like the fact that it has shimmer, yet it gives a pretty clean finishing on lips and does not dry out lips, kind of matte finishing some times. It won’t bleed nor settle in fine lines even if you wear it without a lip balm.
They are mildly scented which is hardly recognizable. Overall, this ultra last lip wear totally succeeded in impressing us after the ultra moist range, this shade is not for me, but I would definitely look for other shades in the same range as I am pretty interested to explore this range! I highly recommend this shade to all medium dusky beauties of every age, it is a steal for its creamy texture and pigmentation at such a price, what say?
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
Pros of New York Color Ultra Last Lip Wear Lipstick – Flirty:
- A beautiful vibrant frosty pink lipstick with slight shimmer.
- It gives opaque pink pigmentation on lips with slight hint of lavender which looks very appealing on dusky skin tones.
- It won’t settle in fine lines nor accentuate any issues further.
- Staying power is 6-8 hours, pretty true to its claims.
- Apt for pigmented lips for its shimmery yet frost free opaque finishing.
- Can be worn alone or with lip balm.
- It won’t dry out lips.
Cons of New York Color Ultra Last Lip Wear Lipstick – Flirty:
- Flimsy packaging however it is too much to expect from a dirt cheap brand.
- Shade might be tricky for some skin tones.
As of now, I only regret that I cannot pull off such vibrant shade, which looks extremely hot on my MIL, believe me! If you love frostiness and shimmer in your lipsticks, and if you love to wear all shades of pink, then this is a must try for you gals! However, I would suggest that you better test and then opt for this flirty shade as it is kind of tricky! I am sure you all must be wondering that I am in a full wellagiri mood today 😉 Even weather is in favour of wellagiri 😛 See you next time gals :* :*
