NYC, New York Color, lip gloss is always a good drugstore option in my opinion. I really like the quality of their lip gloss and the prices are amazing. For just a few bucks, they’ve got great color payoff and the texture is really nice. That goes the same for their newest City Proof Extended Wear line of lip gloss.
NYC City Proof Extended Wear Lipgloss ($3.49) in Blush Forever is a very pretty medium pink color with tiny silver sparkles. It has a really nice fruity fragrance but no taste. I love the way this gloss feels on my lips. Goes on nice and smooth with zero stickiness.
The packaging on these NYC City Proof glosses claims “up to 8hr” wear. I definitely do not get anywhere close to 8hrs with these. After the initial application, the glossiness seems to wear off a bit. But I find that’s true with pretty much any lip gloss. And after eating and drinking, they’re pretty much gone from my lips.
So even though these NYC City Proof lip glosses don’t provide hours upon hours of color and glossiness, they are still way worth the purchase. I think you get a lot of bang for your buck with these. If you’re looking for a cheaper lip gloss alternative, NYC lip glosses with give you great color and shine.
