NYC 16 Hour Lip Stain and City Proof Lip Color Swatches

Hey guys!

Press Sample

The NYC 16 Hour Smooch Proof Lipstain has a marker applicator. The color of the package is the color of the product and I found that to be pretty consistent, at least with the one lipstain I tried.

The color I have is Never Ending Nude. Marker applicators are not my favorite and that is mainly because the applicator tickles when applying. Is that just me? Tell me I'm not alone in this feeling! LOL

As you can see, this is a very sheer color, which is okay because brown is not really a color I think I would wear if it were really opaque. This was several swipes of the marker to achieve this color. Also, this lip stain smelled sort of like cough medicine. I don't really mind that smell, as weird as that sounds, but I thought I would make you aware of that information!

NYC City Proof Lipsticks are chubby pencils that twist up. Twist up pencils are my favorite thing; why would anyone make a pencil that has to be sharpened, I do not know.

The packaging is pretty standard for chubby lip pencils. I do wish the lid clicked on more securely as it seems like it would come off easily if this pencil were thrown in your purse. However, I do love that the color is indicated by the tube.

The top swatch is multiple swipes of the chubby stick, the bottom swatch is one swipe. Again, very sheer and the crayon almost felt as if it were melting onto my skin as I was applying. The smell of this lip crayon is more like cherry than vanilla. It smells really good!

Have you tried either of these NYC lip products? What were your thoughts??

Talk to you soon!
