NYC New York Color Expert Last Lipstick Review & Swatches

NYC New York Color Coralista Expert Last Lipstick

NYC New York Color Expert Last Lipstick ($1.99) is a new longwearing lipstick that New York Color Cosmetics launched for Spring 2014 in 20 shades.

If you’re looking for a cheap thrill this is a nice pick up.

The NYC New York Color Expert Last Lipstick isn’t a remarkable one but it is a cheap one. This a fragrance and flavor free formula with a rich, true to tube pigmentation and a creamy, easy glide formula. I wouldn’t say this formula was moisturizing but it isn’t drying either. The single shade I tried, Coralista (oops is Benefit upset about the name?), is a bright, true shade of orange that packs a nice pigmentation and yields full opaque color on the first application. This color does have a way of sticking to drier areas on my lips but the shade doesn’t migrate, feather, or bleed and has a smooth finish if I go over it a few times. The cream finish has absolutely no sparkle or shimmer. I find NYX Color Expert Lipstick wears for about fours hours before it shows signs of fading.

I wouldn’t call this a incredibly eventful formula but at the $1.99 price tag I’m not complaining and could see myself even purchasing a few more.

    I received the fuchsia one in my Influenster vox box and I adore it

    Honestly I’m obsessed with these. I have 4 and they last a while on me even though I’m an avid lip smacker! Love the pigmentation and they don’t dry my lips out.

    Wow that is pricey for 1.99. They are 1.77 here in Canada or 2 for 3 dollars.

    You’re confusing your NYC’s and NYX’s silly goose :) Thanks for the review! As a penniless “all-high-end-everything” Sephora convert, I’ve been picking up more cheap and cheerful products for Spring and Summer to break up my routine and I’m glad to see that some NYC Color is actually pretty decent for the price!

    Like the formula on these, but yowza, they do pack the pigment. I picked up three brighter shades and they were so intense I couldn’t wear them. And I love a bold lip!

      try gloss it’ll sheer them out :D
