I love cheap makeup. I’m not gonna lie. I love picking up a 3$ gloss and trying something new here and there. That’s why I’m really sad that we don’t have NYC or Wet & Wild in our drugstores but, thankfully, I was able to find NYC products on well.ca! I picked up one gloss first to see how I would like it before trying more and I am heading over to well.ca to order more shades of the NYC 8HR City Proof Extended Wear Lip glosses. It promises high-shine and rich color with no sticky feel and serious staying power: up to 8 hours of wear!
First of all, let me cut to the chase: 8 hours of wear I did not get. I did get up to 4 hours which is pretty good, but not 8. I also find that the formula is a bit sticky and I do feel it coating my lips. Not in a heavy kind of way but it is there. So these are the cons. When it comes to the pros I fell in love with the pigmentation of the Mauving All Night shade as well as its “glossiness”. A tiny little bit of shimmer, no glitter, and a lot of shine and gorgeous color.
The applicator is a classic doe foot of regular size. No complaints about that. Last but not least, I loved the smell. It smells like orange, or more precisely, like Fanta…yes the soda.
If you happen to be looking for a nice mauve lipgloss and are a sucker for cheap (but quality) makeup, then I definitely suggest you go for it! If you’re in Canada you can buy it online for 3.99$ at Well.ca
Available in 6 shades.
