NYC Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss Big City Blush Review, Swatch

My Experience with NYC Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss Big City Blush:

Most of the lip glosses I have are in skinny to normal packaging . It is the first time I saw a jumbo sized lip product and not only is the tube is wide in girth but the applicator is huge as well. It is good for beauties with fuller lips but not so much for normal to thin lip girls.

Packaging: thick long tube – like a wide diameter test tube with a solid black twist cap. It has a big doe foot applicator attached to it. I like the packaging put it is not so easy to carry around since it does not fit in jeans pocket or small side pouches. Also, like I mentioned earlier, the applicator picks up a lot of product in one go that might be too much for some of us.

Texture: It is very creamy and smooth to apply but not too thick or tacky. It has a pretty water shine finish, which I prefer over cream shines. It also has a mild tingling sensation that is meant to plump lips but I didn’t notice any obvious change in plumping of my lips.

Color: Frosty pink that appears more like baby pink with white tone and gives a white cast to the lips. It will not work well for dark or dusky skin tone beauties.

Pigmentation: These lip glosses don’t have good pigmentation nor do they claim. So I won’t complain much. I wear a dark color lip liner underneath and then use this shade to get even tones glossy lips.


Shimmer and shine: It has water shine which is the next best thing to matt finish. It does not have tacky glitter particles like most drugstore lip glosses.

Fragrance: The product has a chocolate – like smell. It is a little over powering in first go but it dials down eventually.

Wear Time: Decent wear time like most lip gloss, which is 2 to 3 hours and then reapplication is required . I don’t mind it since that is the case with most of the lip gloss.

Conclusion: I am really happy that I took a leap of faith and purchased these lip beauties. I already have three shades and can’t wait to buy other shades as well, But readers, try to refrain from buying this particular shade.
