Collection: NYC Lipsticks

Back in April, I did a mini haul post of some lipsticks that I bought at Wal-Mart. I purchased 4 NYC lippies and 1 Wet n Wild lippie. And the best thing was that these lipsticks were only $0.93 each!

The original blog entry was posted on Saturday, April 23, 2011 and you can check it out HERE. Originally, I had just posted pics of the lipsticks and swatches on my forearm.

But today, to show off my complete collection of NYC lipsticks, which consists of just these 4 lipsticks I purchased at the same time, I am going to show you the swatches on my lips. It's just funner this way.

NYC Ultra Moisture Lip Wear Lipsticks
Net wt 0.11 oz (3.4g)
Left to Right:
301 Cafe, 309 Sheer Red, 316 Blossom & 319 Violet Shine

301 Cafe
Cafe is really pretty. It's a very wearable, neutral shade. It is shimmery, though. There are tiny gold reflects all through out this lipstick. I think this would go very well with a smoky eye. It's understated.
309 Sheer Red
Ah, one of my favorites! And I'm not a red lipstick wearer. I did apply this lipstick heavily but you can get a very sexy sheer red, hence the name, out of this one. It's a classic red, perfect for a pin up look. It's creamy and sans shimmer. I love this one. I love it applied lightly too which gives me that sheer look.
316 Blossom
Blossom is hot. It's such a hot pink! This lipstick is so cool because it has purple reflects that sparkle! It's so girly and Barbie like to me.
319 Violet Shine
I would name Violet Shine as my other favorite. It's a more wearable pink than Blossom. It's on the creamy side too. Not too much shimmer here but it does have some. I am new to wearing pink lipstick so I think this one is a good start for me. It's not bold and it's not pale, you can definitely tell you are wearing pink. So pretty.

OK, dollies, this is something new that I thought of doing. Showing you some of my little collections one collection at a time. Did you all like this one?

I have several other small collections I would like to share with you all so if you are interested, let me know!
