Hello beautiful ladies,
Yesterday while I was looking at my previous articles, I realized that I have completed 50 articles with IMBB. Thank you so much IMBB for accepting me as a part of your family and for giving me an opportunity to share my views with all the lovely ladies of the world.
I am back with a pink lip product and today it’s a lip stain from NYC and its called NYC smooch proof 16 hr lip stain in the color called Forever freesia. I have three of such stains and I have already talked about Rock on ruby in one of my articles.
3 ml/0.10 oz.
Like most of the lip stains, this one too comes in a packaging that resembles a bold marker. It’s exactly like a marker, with same kind of applicator. The applicator is narrowed towards the bottom to make the application easier. The outer cover of the stain is of the same color as that of its actual color, which makes color recognition easy.
Aqua/water/EAU, propylene glycol, alcohol, PEG-30 glyceryl stearate, PVP, PEG/PPG-14/4 dimethicone phenoxyethanol, potassium sorbate, parfume/fragrance, panthenol, methyl-paraben, benzyl alcohol, butyl paraben, ethyl paraben, isobutyl paraben, propyl paraben, limonene.
Color that lasts up to 16 hours. Will not transfer, rub off or smear, even when eating or drinking. Lightweight formula, bare lip feel, matte finish. Precise and even application. Allows you to build color.
NYC New York Color Smooch Proof 16 HR Lip Stain stays put, providing a sheer to intense flush of color that sticks around longer than most guys in the city. This is no on-again relationship. Color stays faithful for up to 16 hours. Looking for happily ever after for a very happy price? Let your lips do the charming!
My take on NYC Smooch Proof 16 HR Lip Stain – Forever Freesia :
Forever freesia is a pretty pink color which looks very decent and natural on the lips. This is mainly because it is a matte color. The stain is decently pigmented and is very easy to apply due to the tip applicator. Application is as easy as using a sketch pen. All you have to do is open the cap, make the outline of your lips and fill in the color.
There are both good as well as bad points about this product. On one side, it is affordable, easy to carry and stays for a long time without getting transferred on cups or any other surfaces, but on the other hand it does not live up to its claim, this kind of shade is available in many other brands, it contains parabens, if you want to remove it after 2-3 hours, it really becomes a mess. The pink color becomes really difficult to remove from lips.
So basically it’s a hit-miss both at the same time.
Pros of NYC Smooch Proof 16 HR Lip Stain – Forever Freesia :
• Does not transfer on cups.
• Easy to use.
• Easy to carry while traveling.
• Decently pigmented.
• Color is easy to recognize due to packaging.
Cons of NYC Smooch Proof 16 HR Lip Stain – Forever Freesia:
• Contains parabens.
• Does not stay for 16 hours.
• No available in India.
Would I buy this NYC Smooch Proof 16 HR Lip Stain – Forever Freesia again?
No, I will not repurchase this product again, although it is good and affordable, I do have many pinks and would love to try many more. I am not really very impressed with this particular stain.
Do I recommend NYC Smooch Proof 16 HR Lip Stain – Forever Freesia?
If you love pinks, you can try this, it is a matte color that looks pretty decent even during the days. So it is worth a try. But if you don’t like much pinky products and want only 1-2 in your collection, then you can skip this one.
I want to share one more thing with you girls. Next week I am going for a 10 day tour to Europe and I want to do a lot of shopping there. But as I won’t be able have much time for shopping I want to aim on some particular brands but I am really confused about what to shop. There are so many excellent brands and I want all, but due to time constrains I don’t think I’ll be able to explore all the brands. So girls, please suggest which brands should I look for.
