New York Color Ultra Moist Lip Wear – Retro Red Review

Hey Beautfiuls,


What’s up there! I am on cloud 9 today.  How should I tell you how it feels, when a super busy hubby who never expressed his feelings, though I know he loves me :shy: opens his heart and touches my soul.  He who used to check his wallet, car keys, watch and iphone before leaving home (he earlier confessed that he cannot live without these 4 necessities), just gave me goose bumps in a moment by his short, touching message. As usual, my hubby left for office in a hurry, but by the time he would have reached office, I noticed that he forgot his phone (a necessity he can’t live without) which was unusual for him. I just mailed him on his office id “aap apna iph ghar hi bhul gaye,” I was slightly tensed, but his reply stunned me down from head to toe, “I know but its okay, I can survive without it, but not without you :).” Since then, I am flying in the clouds, it took us 2.5 long years to realise that we were missing such important treasure in our life 😛 I never thought about it, but he actually did, it was unexpected from a shy, caring hubby like him, and now I just forgot that I am a mum.  I am running here and there like a small gal who just found her first love 😛 Moreover, I just finished reading Sanjeev Sir’s “O Happiness How to chase Thee” and I so agree to what everyone says, “we should express our love, joy, concern through small gestures which works like wonders on even negative powers!” Thanks to God, I read it so late, else I would have never realized whom I am chasing in my life which is full of materialistic joys and bliss.

Thank you for such touching and lovely write up, sir! After reading your touching and inspirational post, I was so overwhelmed with my inner happiness that I also decided to write down my feelings and make this moment vital forever. I believe when things will turn down in the worse case scenario, when clouds of sorrow will hold us down, then his (hubby’s) words would be my rain of bliss and joy which will show us a clear sky, full of happiness and celebrations! I never felt a continous celebration in my heart; I so want to hold this celebration forever like this! I truly thank my parents today for blindly engaging me to a stranger 2.5 years back, which led me towards the magical wonderland of love and we so realised whom we call our soulmate. Its really blissful to discover your true love after wedding 😛 I Just hope, he doesn’t read this post, I won’t be able to hide my blushing cheeks and eyes then 😛 Aah, I just forgot, I am also here to share my favourite red lipstick “Retro Red” from NYC. I got it sometime back for my bhabhi and now I too fell for it.  So, please read on further to know about Retro Red.

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’re ready to take on Manhattan!


These gorgeous goodies come in a 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 – Retro Red Wear:

I love reds and this “Retro Red” is so vibrant fire red.  It reminds me of Maybelline Colorsensational “On Fire Red” and “Very Cherry” lip colors.

I guess it is a vibrant fire red shade tending to be slight orange as it does not give a pinkish glow to face, though it looks pretty on lips. It seems to be an universal shade which might compliment every age and skin tone, still I guess it will suit medium and dusky beauties with yellow undertones well (I hope I am right, please rectify if I am wrong, you all are maestros of beauty).  The texture of lipstick is creamy and I just love the juicy shine it imparts on my lips. It is a bliss to swipe it on dried or normal lips, it won’t hurt or exaggerate the issue. It is quite a pigmented lipstick which covers all blemishes (if any on lips) in just 1-2 swipes.

I usually keep it in my handy vanity kit and whenever I am in a hurry, I swipe this lipstick as I know it won’t go wrong in any case. Needless to say, it won’t bleed nor settle in fine lines or dry patches of lips, instead it would give an even coverage and juicy shine.  It was surprising to note that it resembles a lot like Maybelline On Fire Red and Very Cherry lip colors.  I found that this NYC Retro Red is a pretty close match to Maybelline Colorsensational lipsticks in terms of texture, pigmentation and above all, staying power.  I feel its an awesome beauty brand which I would always consider in my shopping wishlist. I would definitely recommend this shade to you gals. I am sure my bhabhi would love me for this ultimate gift 😛
