NYC Expert Last Lip Colour in Red Flame


I'm back again with another red lipstick. I think it is becoming somewhat of a trend with me. My justification for this lipstick is that I received it in my Cosmo goodie bag. I didn't go out and buy yet another lipstick in the same shade, I promise! Though having said that, you will notice from my swatch down below that this is definitely a different kind of red to the classic english rose red.

I have never tried any products by NYC before. I believe that the brand is sold in Superdrug but I haven't really heard anyone kick up a fuss about it before. That was why I was so intrigued to find out what the quality of the products was like. I must admit that I'm pleasantly surprised. I'm pretty sold by the packaging too. I definitely like the clear lid which makes it really easy to see the shade. I also like the silver type which gives it a bit more of an expensive feel.


As you can tell, this isn't the truest of red. It has a pink tinge to it which helps to make it more wearable for a girl who's trying out red for the first time. It has more of a lustre/metallic finish finish too, which I appreciate as it makes this product different to other ones I own. I'm also really impressed by how moisturising it felt on my lips. I didn't apply any lip balm before so it really struck me how comfortable the product was to wear.

I would definitely consider checking out some more lipsticks by NYC. At £1.99 I think that these are a complete bargain. I'm so excited that I have started to find some good quality and genuinely affordable products that I can enjoy. Looking on the Superdrug website, there are definitely some cute colours I want to check out. Do any stand out to you? Let me know in the comments below :)
