NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm 357 Apple Blueberry Pie

I’m not a huge fan of NYC.  I think it’s because nothing ever really grabs me from the line, which is strange because I don’t need to be forced to look at ANY cosmetics.  Add to that the fact that it’s called NYC and I am from NY….and it’s REALLY unbelieveable that I’m not more into this line.

I watched a video from Emily Noel about this product and thought, ‘surely we will not have these in Canada for at least another month.’  But lo and behold, there they were covered in a layer of dust (my Walmart is resetting their entire Health and Beauty section.  Don’t get me started on how it’s been a week and they still are NOT done! GAH). So I stood on my tippy toes and started checking out the colors.  I vaguely remember Emily saying that the lighter colors were ‘too’ light and didn’t really show up so I decided to just take a chance with one.  I chose #357 Apple Blueberry Pie.

First off, how cute is this packaging?  Check out the apple!

Check out the goosebumps!  One drawback of going outside….it was snowing and quite chilly.   This is a semi-heavy swatch. I wanted to ensure that the color would show.

Overall, this is $3.00 CAD spent extremely well.  This product is hydrating, and fairly pigmented.  It feels great on and color payoff is fair.  If you are searching for a product that gives you color AND feels smooth, then I say go for it.  NYC may have turned me around with this product!

      @rasilla they are worth the $3.00 but I can’t speak for the light colors!

    I’m going to try this especially since it’s only $3. I recently bought Cover Girl Jumbo Glossy Balm and I didn’t find it glossy at all, it’s more pigmented than I expected.

      @Leesh I am trying to like Cover Girl but I haven’t used any of their products recently. When they came out with the ‘natural foundation’ I tried that and it just didn’t work out. Hope you like these!
