A few months ago I joined Influenster, an online community that links members with brands and offers rewards for participation. In December I received my first task in the form of what Influenster calls Holiday VoxBox ’12. The VoxBox was loaded with full-sized samples of different products including NYC New York Liquid Color Lipshine.
What I liked? I received the NYC New York Liquid Color Lipshine in the color Nude York City #582 ($2.49 at drugstores nationwide). It’s a high-shine gloss that looks nice alone, but looks even better over lipstick, as it amplifies and adds dimension to solid colors. It has a slight hint of shimmer to it, which I love, without being too dramatic. It also smells yummy – like butterscotch. The flexible application picks up a good amount of the product, and made it easy to apply around the contours of my lips.
Bottom line: This is a great color to add in the center of your pout when you want to give the illusion of fuller lips. The consistency was very silky and the color lasts a long time, but I do feel that it is a bit sticky, and wish it were more smooth.
This Valentine’s Day tantalize the taste buds of your sweetie with every kiss by wearing a flavored lip gloss. The trick is to find one that’s moisturizing and ultra-light so that your pout is soft and kissable, and your lips don’t end up sticking together, ruining the moment. There are a wide variety of sugary sweet glosses and balms designed to make sure that he’ll always remember the taste of your kiss. First, pick out your favorite flavor category below, then apply some flavor to your pout; finally, start smooching. xxxx
