Review: N.Y.C. Lip Sliders Tinted Lip Balm

21 Jul

A review for N.Y.C. Tinted Lip Balms for days where you want colour and a lip balm.

Review: N.Y.C. is a very affordable drugstore brand (hooray for low costs and great products). They have been getting a lot of hype on Youtube as of late due to the new Blushable Creme Sticks (review coming later on). As for this tinted lip balm I have seen many tinted lip balms that cost aroudn $8+CDN so I never did want to try them as I could have gotten a lipstick at that price. But N.Y.C. being sneaky was pretty low cost so I picked one up the shade that I got was Sugar Coated and they have 5 other shades as well. This product smells like cotton candy and lots of vanilla which I usually don’t like but when its on your lips you can’t smell it so I could bare with it. Works great as a lip balm and even throughout the day as the colour fades your lips are still moisturized (big plus!). Since this color is a light pink it give the lips a nice cremesheen shine like you put a glossy icing over your lips very similar to MAC’s Boybait cremesheen (compared it to my friends).

Cost: $2.99CDN at any drugstore that sells N.Y.C.

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product it works great and gives your lips a nice colour. I want to go get the rest of the shades!

Beauty Intro: Joe Fresh Beauty

26 Feb

This is going to be another branch in the beauty section of my blog. Beauty intros are introductions to a companies products that I would like to try and I will also post other peoples thoughts on them. Most of peoples thoughts will come from MakeupAlley. Companies that I will review will most likely be from drugstore companies and maybe some higher end brands such as MAC or Shu Uemura.

So Joe Fresh beauty… not much is known about it as it is a specifically a Canadian drugstore brand that is only found at Loblaws or Superstores across the nation.

They have a wide range of products and all the products are under $10CDN. Some of the most listed or wanted products include cheek tint, tinted lip balm, felt tip liner, cream lipsticks, and eyeshadow.

The products that really stick out for me are:

Cheek tint in Nude, Peach, Pink, Cherry, Berry and Bronze. $4CDN

Blushes in pink (review coming up), pale peach, plum, berry, and rose. $6CDN

Fine Liquid eyeliner in black or brown. $6CDN

Lip stain in sheer pink, candy, peach, apple, watermelon, and cinnamon. $6CDN

Cream lipstick in many different colors. The colors that I want to try are strawberry, watermelon, and coral. $6CDN
