Voxbox Review: NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City

Sometimes, I get so wrapped up in brands like "ELF" that have a vast amount of products priced at $1 that I forget about brands staring me in the face every time I stand in my cosmetics isle. NYC New York Color is one of them. I was gently reminded of their reasonable pricing when I received NYC's Liquid Lipshine in "Nude York City" in my free Voxbox.

The NYC website boasts that the Liquid Lipshine contains Vitamin E, so it's moisturizing, and has a non-sticky formula available in 10 on-trend shade. While I can only speak for one of these shades, I can honestly tell you that it adheres to all of NYC's claims and then some.

As the name indicates, New York Nude is a nude shade warmed up with a peach undertone and fairly noticeable sparkle littered throughout. With one coat, the coverage is medium, but it can be layered to create a more creamy, opaque finish.

Unlike most applicators that come with a tube lip gloss, this was longer than a typical doe-foot and more flexible, which I loved. The smell of vanilla cupcakes is another unmentioned perk that keeps me applying it over and over again. As for NYC's claims of moisture and non-stickiness, that it is. I noticed that in the frigid winter wind, this gloss kept my lips surprisingly protected. And, while it looks like a high-shine gloss, it skips the ultra tackiness and goop that often comes along with one. Something else of note is the lack of grittiness that can sometimes accompany a gloss with sparkle or shimmer. Nothing but smooth lips with this gloss. I haven't been to check out the other colors in the range yet, but at $2.49 for .24 fl. oz., you can bet I will. What's more is that these are accessible and can be found in drug stores, dollar store, KMart, Walmart, and Target (and more!).

NYC's Liquid Lipshine is as good as any drug store lip gloss and at a fraction of the price. If you are looking for a way to save a few bucks and still fuel your lipgloss addiction, this is for you!
