Review & Swatchfest: NYC Sweet Splash Gloss Sticks in Mango Punch, Pink Spark, and Revived Berry


NYC Sweet Splash Gloss Sticks in Mango Punch, Pink Spark, and Revived Berry
NEW on drugstore shelves, the NYC Sweet Splash Gloss Sticks - lip balms in chubby pencil form - are out for a limited time in three shades! Mango Punch is a sheer light peach, Pink Spark is a medium pink, and Revived Berry is a deeper berry/plum with a slight brown undertone.

All of the Gloss Stick have a borderline-glossy sheen, and wear very smoothly on the lips, but don't provide much moisture. Lips feel very smooth with wear, but once they have worn off (less than an hour with eating and drinking - as with most balms) my lips felt dry. That being said, I wouldn't call these "drying", I just don't think they added anything to the health of my lips besides a nice sheen and some subtle, but buildable pigment. Speaking of pigment, swatching these made me nervous that there wouldn't be much to speak of. I was pleasantly surprised when Pink Spark and Revived Berry were easily layered to build up nice, even pigmentation. Mango Punch got a little milky and sank into lines when I tried this, but it's still do-able. Given the short wear-time, I don't these will last longer than a month or two. After one day of use, I had already used Revived Berry down to the plastic opening. At $3.99, I don't think anyone is purchasing these as a long-time investment, but it's good to know they go quickly if you want to get 2 of your fave shade while you can find them!

Although some might not, I like the chubby stick packaging. Although there is no fastener, the cap feels secure and doesn't pop off, and the automatic packaging twists smoothly to dispense product.

Overall, these are cute new summertime products! If you are looking for a fortifying lip balm, go elsewhere. These are a fun, balmy pops of color - great to add to a 5 minute summer makeup routine and reapply without a mirror. You can find them in limited edition display stands at drugstore like CVS and Walgreens!
