NYC Lip Stain - Berry Long TIme

Afternoon Lovelies!

Autumn is upon us! Rejoice, time to whack out the dark lippies and slap on those smoky eyes. While browsing in superdrug the other day I noticed all the dark colour rearing the sultry heads, Something about Autumn really excites me. I spotted this gem and picked it up instantly with a few other lip products i'll be posting this week. 

I'm pretty late on the Lip Strain train to be honest, I tried one once and it was patchy and gross and I was forever put off, but I'm converted. All hail the the lip stain! This one from NYC is the perfect autumn shade, it's a stunning purple/plum colour that's effortlessly buildable. I've found that the best way to apply it layer by layer and allow the product to dry slightly before moving on to the next. You could easily make it as subtle as you wish or as bold. 

As for the staying power? I've not tried it for long enough to say but the fact that I wore it for around 10 minutes like this, tried to remove it brushed my teeth and had breakfast and my lips are still stained purple is a lot to go by, I'd say we are on to a winner. Just not sure how I'm going to get this off before work! I think the only downside to this product is it's totally unsuitable for people with dry lips. I don't suffer with dry lips but for people who do this is almost certainly going to cling to the tiniest bit of dryness! 

All in all I'm over the moon with this product and think its a niffy little gem!

*Also just a quick message to say my give away with wonderland wigs has now finished! So if you've entered keep an eye out as I may be in touch!

  1. This looks beautiful, and a purse friendly price!xx

  2. This looks like such a pretty colour! I'm always worried about these kinds of lip stains though because it's like using felt tip pen on your lips. The texture makes me uneasy haha.

  3. The colour is perfect for autumn! I always tend to stay away from felt tip stains like Collections and NYC because I find they dry out alot and also the texture of applying can be a little annoying and hard to get into a straight line.


  4. This looks much better than the Rimmel ones, I hated theirs xxx

  5. This is a gorgeous colour, looks lovely on you! xx
