NYC New York Color Ultra Moist Lipwear in Retro Red Review

NYC or New York Color probably has the most affordable makeup products in the market. Even cheaper than those from the local brands. The prices of their products starts at around $0.99 to $5.00. For today, I'll be featuring NYC's Ultra Moist Lipwear in Retro Red which my mom bought from CVS.

Info about NYC Ultra Moist Lipwear in Retro Red from their site:

Looking for uptown style? NYC New York Color Ultra Moist LipWear adds instant Upper East Side polish to your look at a rock-bottom price. A wardrobe of on-trend shades makes stealing runway looks simple. Built-in conditioner creates a creamy, dreamy texture on your lips for an ultra moisturized feel. From catwalk to sidewalk in seconds, now you’re ready to take on Manhattan!

Lips feel moisturized and deeply nourished
Comfortable, creamy texture
Easily glides onto lips
Doesn't feather or bleed

Formula with conditioning vitamin E

Swatch on my arm

There is no doubt about the red in the product! The color is a vibrant red. It is more of a red-orange color though, than a bold red shade. But nonetheless, the color is promising and very retro!

On my lips (without flash)

The Good:
- The color is indeed a very bright and retro red! The pigmentation is great, too. This lip color is something I could wear during special occasions and events.
- The color lasts long even if the moisturizing effect has already disappeared. It stains really well!
- The texture is very creamy and it doesn't dry my lips. But I always use a lip balm before putting on lip color.
- It glides on smoothly and evenly.
- It doesn't have a weird or unpleasant taste or smell.
- It's very affordable! Only $0.99! :)

The Not So Good;
- It would have been better if the color is not too orange-y.
- The packaging is not good. It looks cheap and cap gets removed easily.
- The lipstick sometimes smears on my teeth.
- It is not available locally! :(

Have you tried NYC products? :)
