Price- $ 0.99 for 3.4 grams of product

Not that any of this was what i wanted to know! Neither did I introspect upon things after even knowing them! I know that’s pretty lousy, but hey, at least I am honest!

Packaging: Coming to the packaging, for 99 cents, i say it is quite nice! But keeping aside the price tag the lipstick seems to be rather lousy to me! In the sense that it is quite cute with the transparent cap and everything so you can see the shade and it gets really easy to locate in your stash if you own more than one from the same range! But the packaging looks quite clumsy to me when seen in respects of it being sturdy! I have my doubts with the cap breaking loose or cracking if it falls even from the shallowest of heights! And I am not even risking carrying it in my bag! You need to be a bit cautious while travelling with this one I believe!

And the bullet not that I am complaining for the price tag it comes along but it does not retract completely and somehow (no matter how much cautious i am while handling this) the tip of the lipstick bullet always gets snubbed!

My Experience With NYC Ultra Moist Lip Wear Lipstick In 309 Sheer Red

The NYC Ultra Moist Lip Wear Lipstick in 309 Sheer Red and Shade NameShade: Now this is seriously the most adorable part of this cute little baby! Just one look at the actual lipstick and you are scared to your wits end coz it’s a bold deep red almost maroonish to look at! And I actually passed it over to my mum without even swatching it on my hand! But the day she wore it I wanted it back, and I was all over the place begging for it 😛 !

The colour in the tube is pretty deceiving and the actual colour comes out to be a very pretty berry kind of a cherry-red tint and not a full blown red! The colour is very subtle, very wearable and perfect for those who dread the red-lip trend!

Texture and Pigmentation: The texture of the lipstick is pretty smooth no shimmer, no frost, no glitter, no matte just a pure creamy lipstick which has a soft and sheer kind of glossy sheen to it! The lipstick seems very moisturizing to me and it does not fill in the uneven lip lines! I personally don’t feel the need to wear it over a lip balm, as with one pretty swipe it comes out to be as a tinted lip balm only! Two-three swipes can build up the color opacity on non-pigmented even tone lips! But for the more pigmented lips, more than just a couple of swipes would be necessary! But the good part is that the color is buildable and it does not get gloopy on layering!

The pigmentation could be better though, but at this price, and finish I am a fan!

Staying power: I wish I could say good things about the staying power of this lipstick as well! It transfers to everything your lips might be touching anything and everything to be precise! It stays for a pretty average 3 hours with drinks and light (oil-free) snacks and fades pretty evenly! Touch ups are mandatory every three hours with the NYC lippy!

My Take:

  If you know even an ounce of me, you know how scared I am of these red coloured lipsticks, but this particular gorgeous shade has made me fall in love with the hidden red-lover in me! The lipstick turned out to be the perfect snow-white kind of red tinted lip shade on me and I could feel myself look all pretty and flamboyant and stuff! I have my issues with the lipstick packaging, but i cannot disapprove of the fact that it is quite cute for the price it comes in!

I wear it as a stain (as a change from my regular baby lips) these days—yes, it is too humid to wear a full blown lipstick—lip stains and balms are my go to at this month of the year! The stain wears beautifully and fades very evenly—but once it fades, it fades! There is no trace of it to be found—it literally abandons me, leaving my lips bare!
