NYC New York Color Cosmetics Fashion Predator City Proof Extended Wear Lipgloss Review & Swatches
NYC New York Color Cosmetics has launched a new limited edition collection for Fall 2012 entitled Fashion Predator. The collection includes two limited edition shades of City Proof Extended Wear Lipgloss in Femme Fatale and Venomous Berry.
I highly suggest checking out both of these shades as they are excellent budget picks for a vampy Fall lip!
I’ve reviewed New York Color Cosmetics City Proof Extended Wear Lipgloss early last year and was quite pleased with the $2.49-$3.19 price tag.
The glosses are delightfully opaque in most shade selections from the general catalog and both the limited edition shades prove to have the same excellent pigmentation.
Venomous Berry is a wearable shade of lilac that has a bit of an MLBB (my lips but better) finish where as Femme Fatale is a darkened wine berry. Both shades are quite a steal at this price and offer a lighter or more dramatic lip look for fall.
Venomous Berry and Femme Fatale
Each gloss has a sponge tip with a slight slant that saturates well with color. The texture of the gloss seems to have improved since I last tried it. It’s a plush gloss with a lightweight feel and a shiny finish. Although they promise an eight hour wear I only see about three to four before I need a touch up as it lacks any stickiness or tackiness to keep it wearing longer. I’m quite alright sans stickiness as I have plenty of glosses that are thick and tacky already. The glosses have a citrus-y taste that disappears fairly quickly after application. They have a very slight tingle when applied but nothing sensitive users should be worried about. These lack sparkle but the glossy, shiny finish more than makes up for that.
Overall, the formula here is excellent at this price range and the fact they apply with such great color pay off also earns them a spot in my Muse Approval book. I really like these and I’m quite happy to see them doing a few LE shades as I already own many of the shades in the general catalog.
Can’t beat the price for this nicely formulated gloss.
