I bought N.Y.C. New York Color Lip Stains in Endless Spice and Champagne Stain
|Left is Champagne Stain and right is Endless Spice|
The precise and even application was in fact true. They were really smooth and easy to work with. Once I had the lip stain on, I completely forgot I had anything on my lips. I did everything normally, eat and drink, even kissed my daughter and the lip stain was going no where. No rubbing off or smearing which was great! Another thing I noticed was they were surprisingly moisturizing. I expected any kind of lip stain to be more on the drying side. But these were very moisturizing to my lips. Now you want to know, did it last 16 hours? No. I put mine on at 8am and I noticed I still had color on until about 6pm. That was 10 hours which honestly was long enough! I only used one application and then applied gloss over. If you use two applications you will get a more intense color which might make a difference in time. Either way I think for the price and quality of these, I say they are definitely well worth the $4.99.
