NYC Ultra Moist Lipwear's packaging isn't attractive, nor is it good quality. The black and silver tube is topped with a clear, round cap. The NYC logo is printed on the twist mechanism. The shade name and number can be found on the sticker on the bottom of the tube. My biggest problem with this lipsticks's packaging is that the bullet doesn't twist all the way down into the tube, making it vulnerable to knicks and breaking off. Packaging doesn't seem to be recyclable.
NYC's Retro Red Ultra Moist Lipwear is a super moisturizing, very pigmented classic red lipstick. This lipstick has good lasting power, but it does transfer and can slip around. A lip liner really is a must. If you wanna try a red lipstick without spending much money, Retro Red is a great budget option. Personally, I wouldn't repurchase Retro Red, but I do want to try more from the Ultra Moist Lipwear line.
