NYC New York Color Smooch Proof LIPStain 16H Photos/Swatches

Does your boyfriend, husband or significant other ever complain when they can't kiss you because you're wearing lipstick? It happens to me all the time. Kiko hates it when he can't even get a peck because I'm wearing my favorite dark berry lipstick and I don't want him to eat it. Well, I'm happy to say that with NYC New York Color Smooch Proof LIPStain 16H, I don't have to worry about it anymore! These lip stains, just like the name says are "Smooch Proof". It stays on my lips for hours and no matter how much Kiko kisses me, my lip color stays on vibrant and fabulous!

NYC New York Color says...
(taken from NYC website)

"NYC New York Color Smooch Proof 16HR Lip Stain stays put, providing a sheer to intense flush of color that sticks around longer than most guys in the City. This is no on-again, off-again relationship. Color stays faithful for up to 16 hours. Looking for happily ever after for a very happy price? Let your lips do the charming!"

What I like...
-The fine tip pen/marker style packaging is awesome. It makes application much easier and outlining the lips a breeze. It tickles my lips though lol.
-It doesn't bleed.
-The color pay off is like a lipstick, especially when you apply in layers. It's very pigmented. (Make sure you let one layer dry first before adding another layer)
-I can control the coverage from sheer to full. I can layer the colors for more coverage.
-It stays on for hours. It last about 4-6 hours for me before I started noticing a little fading, which is pretty good.
-It looks great on its own or under a lip balm.
-It has a nice scent. Kiko says it smells like cherries ^_^.
-For $4.99 a pop, these are definitely a great bargain!

What I don't like...

Here are all the lip stains I own. All are beautiful colors. I will have separate swatches on my lips in the future. For now, I hope you find these photos and swatches on my arm helpful in picking colors you like.

I'm wearing 2 layers of Forever Mine Wine. This is the most pigmented lip stain out of all. It's actually more than a stain, it's like a lipstick...Amazing!

I highly recommend these lip stains. They're pigmented, long lasting and smooch proof! Trust me, you're partner will thank you!
