Hey all! I’m here with more budget beauty and I think it’s about time I reviewed and swatched the NYC Expert Last lippies in full. These are an astonishing $2 most places you go and have a wide variety of shades. I have four here that I love but this is certainly not all there is.
I’m going to start with my biggest complaint. These are not a long lasting lip colour by any means. They might last for two hours, they will not last you a meal or even a drink in some cases, and it leaves you with a bit of colour just on the outline of your lips so when you wear these, keep a mirror handy and make sure you take the shade with you wherever you’re going. The packaging is yet another con with these but it’s expected when it comes to that inexpensive price tag. The silver writing on the packaging scratches off pretty easily, it feels cheap and I don’t now if this is a flaw in design, packaging or user error, but I always get lipstick on the lid. With a clear lid like this, it looks a little ugly. Onto the good things:
Creamy Caramel is a beautiful brown nude.
Blue Rose is a bold fuchsia shade with a blue sheen to it.
Pure Coral is a bright coral colour.
The colours are definitely bold and beautiful. They look and feel awesome on the lips for things like pictures or maybe when you’re out shopping. I have worn these to work (8-10 hours) but have to reapply constantly. They do transfer and do travel a bit if you’re not careful but all of this is pretty easily maintained.
Do I recommend these? I think they are worth their price, take that as you will. It all depends on what you’re looking for. I like owning these and I want to collect them all but I only wear them when I am ready to maintain them. What do you think of these lipsticks?
Til next time, ttfn x
