Name: Ultra Last Lipwear in Fragile Pink
From NYC’s website:
Re-apply? Who has the time?! NYC New York Color Ultra Last LipWear is wearable, ultra lasting and stays on up to 6 hours. Perfect for your morning meetings and all-night parties. The rich, silky formula is so creamy and comfortable.
What I liked:
- beautiful and subtle pink colour
- semi-sheer but buildable
- creamy texture, glides on smoothly
- the price
What I didn’t like:
- some people may not like the frosty finish
- not moisturizing
- doesn’t last very long on the lips
I don’t expect drugstore lipsticks to be particularly longlasting, but when a brand calls theirs Ultra Last, then I do expect the staying power to be more than average, which on my lips is about an hour and a half. Sadly, NYC Ultra Last Lipwear only hangs around for one hour, less if you drink or eat. Bummer!
And that’s not the only drawback. While the texture is quite creamy and the lipstick glides on smoothly, it is not moisturizing at all. It doesn’t dry my lips but, without a layer of lip balm underneath, it doesn’t feel too comfortable either. Because of this, I wouldn’t really recommend it to those with dry and chapped lips.
The colour, though, is gorgeous. Fragile Pink is a delicate, semi-sheer but easily buildable pink with silver shimmers that give it a frosty finish. I was afraid such a pale, frosty shade would look awful against my pale skin, but instead it is quite flattering. The lipstick given them a soft wash of colour and a bit of shine, which is perfect for daytime looks.
NYC Ultra Last Lipwear in Fragile Pink is a delicate, semi-sheer pink shade with a frosty finish. The creamy texture glides on smoothly but doesn’t moisturize lips. And the staying power is very disappointing too.
