REVIEW: NYC Get It All Lip Color in ExceptioNUDE & ExtraordiBERRY

by - March 10, 2016

Because I've had really good luck with the NYC Expert Last Lip Color line in the past, I was really excited when I saw this new formula on the shelf at Walmart and I just had to pick it up. As is standard for me, I chose a pretty mauve shade that borders on nude and a deeper berry shade. I feel like this tends to be the best way to get a feel for the formulas of a lip product line without needing to pick up all of the shades. Anyway, I've been trying these out and I'm definitely ready to let you guys know what I think!

About NYC Get It All Lip Color:
A gorgeous color matched tube that’s packed with all the benefits you ever dreamt of for your lips. The first to low-cost lip color features a comfortable and creamy texture and a long-lasting formula that provides you with an immediate high impact color finish.

101 ExceptioNUDE
First of all, this is definitely not a true nude shade because there is a fair bit of pinky mauve in it, but I love that because I feel like those are the most flattering nude shades for my lips. I would say that this is a great Your Lips But Better type of shade. I feel like this shade has good pigmentation and provides really good coverage to the lips without being overwhelming. Very wearable and will be flattering on a lot of skin tones.

400 ExtraordiBERRY
This shade is BEAUTIFUL. I struggle sometimes with finding a berry that isn't too much on my fair skin, but I really think that this provides a beautiful, deep berry shade that isn't too bright or too deep, making it quite wearable. On deep skin tones, I think this would be absolutely beautiful, and on fair to light skintones it's quite striking. You can also apply this a little more sheer and blot it to a really pretty bitten stain.

The packaging of this product is quite nice, with the colour of the tube matching really well what's inside. The lid snaps on fairly well, much better than the cap in the Expert Last range, which was one of my biggest issues with those lipsticks. There is a slight scent to the product, but it's quite faint and I don't find I notice it at all on the lips or even when I'm applying the product, which is a huge plus for me and one place that drugstore lipsticks fail a lot of the time.

As you can see, this isn't a matte formula I would definitely say that it is a satin type formula on the lips. It's almost matte with just a hint of shine left behind. It's quite a firm formula, though it does apply really smoothly. The feel on the lips is really what is firm to me, as it doesn't have a lot of slip so it doesn't move around. I wouldn't say that this is a moisturizing formula, but it's not drying either. I find it incredibly comfortable on the lips. Wear time, for me, has been quite good, though I wouldn't go so far as to say it's long wearing.

My thoughts on both of these lipsticks are actually really good. I think they pack a good punch of colour, apply beautifully, have really nice packaging with a lid that definitely snaps on more firmly than the Expert Last line, and wear really nicely on the lips. At under $5, I really think this formula is one of the absolute best at their price point. If you were thinking about trying out or have been looking for a good quality, low cost lipstick, I would definitely say these are worth a try!
