New York Color Ultra Moist Lip Wear in Petal Review

Hi Gals,

Hope you are doing fine and enjoying your days.  Today, I am here with my new purchase from NYC. After reading rave reviews of NYC on IMBB, I laid my hands on this goodie for my family members. Moreover, my cousins demanded this goodie, so I was really keen to try it out. I picked some 4-5 shades from NYC on IMBB’s suggestion, out of them I will review a soft pink shade for you – Petal 314. Please read on further to know about this shade.



$ 0.99 for 0.11 Oz (3.4 gm).

Product Description:

Looking for uptown style? New York Color Ultra Moist Lip Wear adds instant Upper East Side polish to your look at a rock- bottom price. A wardrobe of on-trend shades makes stealing runway looks simple. Built-in conditioner creates a creamy, dreamy texture on your lips for an ultra moisturized feel. From catwalk to sidewalk in seconds, now you are ready to take on Manhattan!

These gorgeous goodies come in beautiful semi opaque black packaging with transparent oval cap. The lipstick does not retract completely inside the bullet hence it becomes a little messy. Other than that, the case is travel friendly although it looks a little brittle and needs to be handled with care.



My Experience with New York Color Ultra Moist Lip Wear in Petal:

This is my first NYC goodie and I loved it to the core of my heart. However, this petal shade is not my kind of pink, but I loved other shades like Blossom and Ruby a  lot.  My mum in law loves such neutral pink shades hence she took it for herself and her sisters, so sweet 🙂 The Petal lip color looks very light pink on lips than what we see in the bullet.

It looks soft coral in pictures, but in actual, it is a neutral pink kind of shade. It does have shimmers and seems another pearly shade as it becomes frosted after a few hours. However, frequent touch ups or lip gloss coat may manage this issue, but personally I feel it washes me out up to some extent. Since my mum in law wore it and it complimented on her medium skin tone perfectly, I feel it will well suit dusky to medium skin tones.  I also feel that this petal shade will complement every age group though it is a really tricky shade and might be difficult to pull off for some fair skinned beauties.

Let me talk about its superb texture. I felt it is super creamy and glides readily on lips. Whether I apply it over dry lips or over lip balm, it will smoothly glide and give perfect pigmentation in 2-3 swipes. I felt WNW and NYC have almost same texture, but I loved the packaging of NYC as it looks more worthy and travel friendly though it has a little messy packaging like WNW. Staying power is also decent as it manages to stay on my lips for 4-5 hours with heavy meals as well water sips.  Overall, I am really happy with my purchase and thinking of getting other lipsticks from NYC in future as they look more price worthy and attractive. Right now, both me and my mum in law are in love with these lipsticks and we are sitting together, debating to pick our favourite shades out of these lipsticks 😛


Let’s sum up pros and cons:

Pros of New York Color Ultra Moist Lip Wear in Petal:

  • Light pink pearly shade with shimmers.
  • Very soft and creamy texture.
  • Feels light on lips.
  • Gives buildable pigmentation in a few swipes.
  • Does not bleed or settle in fine lines.
  • It will look great on all age groups.
  • Pretty decent staying power of 4-5 hours with heavy meals or water sips.
  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • Such attractive packaging at dirt cheap price.


Cons of New York Color Ultra Moist Lip Wear in Petal:

  • It seems a pearly shade which might be a nay for many of us.
  • It is really difficult to pull off this shade.

Apart from the shade, I do not have any issue with NYC lipsticks, frankly speaking.  I have seen other gorgeous shades of red and brown in NYC and soon I am going to get them for myself and my cousins, yay!

I would say you should definitely consider NYC goodies in your shopping list, but do swatch this petal shade before purchasing.

See you soon with other lip smacking goodie 🙂
