BRAND: N.Y.C. New York City Colors
NAME: Ultra Last Lipsticks
AVAILABILITY: Drugstores and online.
An oldie, but a goodie! These N.Y.C. New York City Ultra Last lipsticks has been in my collection for awhile. I am not sure if they are discontinued, but I still see them at some of my local drugstores and and The Dollar store, so I still decided to make this review and swatches for you guys.
They are one of the best drugstore lipstick in my opinion! I love the formula and pigmentation. It is rich, creamy, smooth and comfortable on the lips. They are true to color and opaque with medium to full coverage. One application is all I need. Most shades have a shimmer and shiny finish, which I don't mind because I don't need to apply a lip gloss over them.
However, I am not a fan of the packaging. The lipstick does not twist all the way down. I have to be careful not to nick the lipstick every time I open and close it ugh. Also, touch ups is needed. For me, they last about 3-4 hours especially with eating and drinking, but that's not really a big deal to me. For the price, they are still amazing!
Overall, they are a great product. The bad packaging is overlooked by the formula, texture, gorgeous shades and affordable price. They will be forever one of my favorite lipsticks!
*Just a note, 4 of the lipsticks has a different placement of the N.Y.C. logo. I am not sure if they are part of the Ultra Last Line. But let's just assume they are since the packaging is the same ^_^. Thank you!*
I hope these swatches are helpful!
