INFLUENSTER: NYC New York Color Liquid Lip Shine

Hello, my Pretties!

As you all know, I received my Influenster Holiday VoxBox on December 13th and I have been slowly using the products included in my package.  If you want to see my post on my Holiday VoxBox arrival, click HERE.

I will be doing individual posts on all the featured products in the Holiday VoxBox.

Next on the list is, New York Color Liquid Lip Shine.

NYC Liquid LipShine

Here is what the Influenster information card had to say about New York Color Liquid Lip Shine:
"Straight from the city that never sleeps, New York Color's Liquid Lipshine is uptown style at a down-to-earth price.  With pure pigments that create a 3-D gloss effect and vitamin E that provides shine and moisture, this product is perfect to keep lips looking and feeling fabulous this season.  Comes in 10 shades from neutral nude, to berries & fuchsias."

Nude York City 

I received the neutral nude mentioned in the information card.  Look at it!  It's so pretty.  It's a very shimmery nude gloss.  I am new to nude shades on my lips so when I saw this gloss in my VoxBox I was very disappointed.  Never judge a book by it cover!

Flat yet flexible sponge applicator.

After applying the gloss to my bare lips with this strange flat sponge tipped applicator, I fell in love with this gloss!  Seriously.  I had been wanting to try out the nude lip craze that everyone is so into but I always felt my skin tone was just too dark for nude lips.  This shade did not make me look washed out or sickly and pale.  It's sparkles and brightens up my face.


Here is a swatch of this lovely gloss.  I think this looks wonderful on my bare lips but I can see this being used with a bold lip as a top coat just to warm it up a bit and tone down a harsh dark lip.  It has a lot of shimmer to it!  Perfect for the holidays and New Year's Eve parties.

Oh, and it's so moisturizing!  I love how it feels on my lips.  It's not drying or sticky at all.  Sticky glosses are a major turn off for me.  It's not a very thick formula either.  It glides on smoothly and evenly.  I can't get over how non-sticky, super glossy, and soft this lip gloss is.

0.24 fl oz 7.2 ml

Oh, and did I forget to mention the way this gloss smells and tastes?  Upon first application, I did not notice a smell or a taste because I was chewing my Mentos Pure Fresh Gum at the time.  But after using it a second time, I smelled such a sweet scent.  Like marshmallows!  It smells delicious!  And the taste is just as sweet.  I don't know how to describe the taste.  It's sweet.  I'll stick to my marshmallow reference.  It's nice.  Not to overwhelming at all.

Over all, this is a great gloss.  I love NYC products but I have failed to try this one before.  Thank goodness for VoxBoxes or else I might have never tried this product.  Now, I have to buy the other shades!

Luv & Luk,

♥♥ All the products mentioned in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox Series were sent to me free of charge for review purposes.  These are my own thoughts and honest opinions. ♥♥


  1. Looks nice. I signed up with Influenster recently, got an email saying I'd get a holiday box, but it hasn't arrived - kinda anxious to get it and see if I got this gloss too! :)

  2. It sounds yummy! I love the smell of sweet things, especially in lippies :)

  3. That is such a nice color! I might have a similar one from Revlon too. Thanks for sharing, hun!

  4. @Krystal Caracol, oh yay! Congrats! Hope you get it soon :) I'm sure you'll get the gloss but I'm not sure if it will be the same color. I think most of us got this color but I do think they were shipping different shades :)

    @Vintage Makeup, it is yummy! And I'm actually not a fan of sweet things, flavored or scented, in my lippies but this one was not bothersome at all :)

    @Huda, I really did like this color. It's nude and glossy and has pretty shimmers in it. I don't own any Revlon now that I think about it. I should get some!
