309 B- Sheer Red
301 B- CafeSheer Red is just as it sounds, a beautiful shimmery red. This is not too pigmented, but in some ways that can be a good thing. You don’t always want an extremely dramatic red lip.
I was actually quite impressed.
Granted they aren’t very pigmented, but like I said, sometimes you don’t always want a dramatic lip!
Also, the staying power is pretty impressive. I didn’t touch up at all during my classes and it still remained on my lips.Onto the Negatives. There always has to be a few 🙁
First of all, the packaging of these lipsticks isn’t ideal. It’s very cheap plastic, and very easy to break, so be careful!
Second, the lipsticks have a different smell to them, when I first smelt it I immediately thought of the cheap lip glosses you used to get when you were five… that came with Barbie. It’s sort of a plastic smell.
Third, the colors definitely do not hold up through any sort of lip contact… so if you plan to eat/drink/kiss etc. you better bring the lipstick with you to touch up.
Overall, I would rate this product in the B- range… although I love the colors and the and quality the packaging could be a little better, and the pigmentation isn’t quite there yet, but well on it’s way.
Have you tried NYC Lipsticks?
