New York Color is an easily available and affordable brand in the States, and has loads of cosmetics under its umbrella. I am trying out a few products from this brand and I am quite liking them. So, let’s talk about today’s product – City Proof Extended Wear Lip Gloss Midnight Rose. I love wearing deep kohl on a daily basis. However, I was tired of sporting light pink and mauve shades to balance out the look. Bright shades look over the top especially in formal settings and that’s why I thought of trying something neutral yet different. I picked up this lip gloss to use it for daily wear and to sport with smoky eyes or heavy makeup. Let me confess, I hated lip gloss until I found this one. Curious? Read on further about this lip gloss by NYC in the shade “Midnight Rose.”

Its incredible formula offers high-shine and rich color with no sticky feel and serious staying power! So just gloss and go to live your New Yorker life!
My Experience with NYC Up To 8HR City Proof Extended Wear Lip Gloss Midnight Rose:
Packaging: The gloss comes in a simple cute transparent tube filled with the dusty rose colored liquid. It has a doe-foot applicator which aids in perfect and precise application. The brand name is printed in catchy font.
Before I tell you about this product, let me describe my apathy towards glosses. I hate sticky, extremely shiny glosses which attract stares while walking down the road. I never found a subtle lip gloss, whose formula was comfortable and non-sticky. Neutral glosses also tend to make my lips sickly and pale.
Enter this beautiful lip gloss, I can’t stop raving about. The gloss is lightweight and very slightly sticky. So my lips don’t stick momentarily each time I close my mouth. It feels so comfortable on lips and does impart the “something slimy is there on my lips” feeling.
The color is a beautiful neutral shade with minute and barely noticeable shimmer. I can’t describe the shade, but it’s just a tad bit darker than my lip color and will serve as a MLBB lip gloss for most complexions. It gives a full, luscious pout without a vibrant color- it looks naturally s*xy. You can wear it to work, you can wear it to parties, you can wear it on bare lips or over a darker shade – this gloss is as versatile as that.
It stays for around 4-5 hours without drinking and eating, and shows slight fading if you consume something. It doesn’t leave behind any tint, and it’s very easy to do reapplications using the doe-foot applicator. The gloss doesn’t dry out lips or settle in fine lines. It has a yummy candy smell, so you might end up licking it. Overall, no major complaints from this gloss and I am loving this!
Also, I am attaching a photo I bought in the last couple of weeks, so you can imagine what and how much more I will be buying in the next two months of my stay.
