I'm definitely a fan of this drugstore gem! NYC's Violet Shine is versatile, how it looks is highly affected by how much you apply and your natural lip color. This lipstick can go from a sheer pink to a glossy lilac in three quick swipes. The Ultra Moist Lipwear formula feels great on the lips - very hydrating, more so than some balms. This is certainly not a long wearing lipstick formula, but that's to be expected from a slick, moisture rich lipstick like this one. This is an excellent lipstick, the fact that it's only a buck makes it even better. I encourage my readers to try Violet Shine. I'll be trying more from the Ultra Moist Lipwear line, for sure.
