I am going to review the NYC Ultra Last Lip Wear in shade – “Berry Rich.” I am more into plums, mauves and pinks usually and when I saw this particular shade’s lip swatch online, I could not resist getting this! One of my friend’s relatives had got this for me.
Re-apply? Who has the time?! NYC New York Color Ultra Last LipWear is wearable, ultra lasting and stays on up to 6 hours. Perfect for your morning meetings and all-night parties. The rich, silky formula is so creamy and comfortable. It’s super-affordable too. Great for girls on the go.
$1.5 – 2 (not very sure) for a quantity of 3.4 gms.
It comes in a square tube with a transparent cap and the lipstick bullet peeps out from the casing even after fully twisting it down. The packaging is kind of cute, but nothing classy.
(I had to paste the ingredients sticker elsewhere for it to be visible ;))
My Take on New York Color Berry Rich Lipstick:
This shade “Berry Rich” is a nice mauve-y berry shade (yes, I am getting crazy about plums and berries these days). This shade will suit the Indian skin tone well. Though it is called ultra last lip wear, it does not dry out my lips. It stays on my lips for about 3 hours if applied as a stain by dabbing on lips instead of swiping it, but when applied with full intensity, it lasts from 4 to 5 hours (I am sure it will last for 6 hours, provided a matching lip liner is used and the blotting and reapplying technique is used). Isn’t that really cool?
I applied it as a stain today morning and even after coffee, it was there on my lips. I really loved the way it fades after a coffee into a light mauve-plus-pinky stain. It does not have any smell and I am very glad about it. I would not say that it moisturized my lips, just that it did not dry out my lips.
It has no shimmer and gives an almost matte finish if dabbed on to the lips, which is perfect for office goers! All in all, I feel it is an above average lipstick which is very affordable.
Here are the swatches in different lightings. The first one is under sunlight. (The first swatch is single swipe and the second one is swiped 4 times).
This one is under shade.
This is indoor with natural sunlight.
