N.Y.C. Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm
I’ve been trying out a few new-to-me N.Y.C. make-up items since late last week and today’s post is on one that I’ve been using for the past few days. In fact, I have it on my lips today. Here’s N.Y.C. Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm Big Apple Red 356.
This is described as the following on their website:
“Big City! Big Apple! Big Care! Need a touch of cushiony sweetness in the daily grind of NYC? Only NYC New York Color could find the city’s soft spot with their new deliciously ‘feel good’ APPLELICIOUS lip balm that will deliver color, shine and moisture in one single swipe! Just like the Big Apple itself it’s juicy, shiny and colorfully loud but also reveals a softer and more caring side. Color is fun and fruity and with a hidden apple core of care it’s also delightfully moist. This ‘oh so cute!’ apple-shaped core reinforces the moisturizing properties of the rest of the balm and gives your lips a healthier look! The apple on the cake? A fruity apple scent that will make your lips irresistibly kissable!”
Swatches shown below is 2 swipes on the left and 4 swipes on the right.
Verdict? The shade I got is Big Apple Red. You simply can’t get more New York than that. And it certainly can’t get any more red than it is for a lip balm. There is more color payoff than I imagined there would be for being a lip balm. It is pretty glossy and very moisturizing. It glided onto my lips smoothly. I don’t find this sticky at all. The only thing that people might watch out for is the scent. My co-worker sisters and I described it close to what we think of a sour apple scent is like. The scent isn’t very subtle, so I’m guessing that people will either love it or hate it. There is no real taste to it. I keep smelling the apple scent when I run my tongue over my lips, but I don’t detect a real taste at all. If you want just a little bit of color on your lips with a lip balm, you can’t go wrong with this item.
This can be found in chain drugstores and mass merchandisers nationwide.
