Price and quantity: $ 0.99 for 0.11 Oz (3.4 g).

Packaging: The lippy is housed in a plastic opaque black packaging with transparent oval cap. The lipstick does not retract completely inside the bullet, so I always have the problem that the lippy bullet comes in contact with the cap as a result the cap feels messy with the colour on it. The packaging is not that sturdy however the cap snap shut tightly and doesn’t comes out if you carry it in your beg.

My take on the NYC Ultra Moist Lipwear in Retro Red:

First of all, lets talk about the shade which is a bright red with orange undertones, the shade instantly add vibrant dash of colour to your face. Since it has orange undertones hence it will suit Indian complexion ranging from dusky to fair ones.

Now the pigmentation- the lippy is a winner hands down in this category just a swipe of lippy and you’ll get the required intensity of colour. The texture of the lipstick is buttery smooth and gives a creamy finish to lips after It is a applying it. As the name itself suggests it is ultra moist in nature so even if you have dry lips you need not worry as this lippy not only hides dry lips but also keeps them soft and moisturized.

However sometimes I feel that it bleeds from the corner of the lips and I need to use a lipliner to prevent it from bleeding. Now the staying power point- the lippy stay put together for good 3-4 hours after which it starts to fade, and when it fades it leaves behind a tint which ensures that your lips will not devoid of colour if you use this lippy.

What I love about NYC Ultra Moist Lipwear in Retro Red:

  • Lovely Red shade with orange undertones which will suit ladies with dusky to fair complexion.
  • Pocket friendly.
  • Moisturised lips.
  • Buttery smooth texture.
  • Ammazing pigmentation.

What I don’t like about NYC Ultra Moist Lipwear in Retro Red:
