Eager to see if the lower end cosmetics perform just as well as the higher end I picked up NYC Expert Last Rouge A Levres lipstick in Love My Latte.
NYC Expert Last Lipstick comes in 15 gorgeous shades, aiming to give amplified colour and long lasting shine that lasts up to 6 hours.
On inspection I found the lipstick to have a lot of intense sparkle in the dark berry shade. The lipstick felt smooth and moisturising on my lips but there didn’t seem to be much of a colour change. The finished look was quite polished and gave my lips a velvety shine.In some ways this lipstick is more like a lip balm as it adds very little other then moisture and a little sparkle.
The product has quite a limited life cycle and does slip off pretty quickly if you have anything to eat or drink.
For its low price tag this isn’t the worst lipstick you could buy as it keeps your lips moisturised and adds low key glamour with its shimmery set. However if you’re a lover of vibrant pillar box red lipsticks this probably won’t be your cup of tea.
I give it 3/5
- Low key glamour with the shimmery setting
- Leaves lips feeling moisturised
- Velvety finish
- Doesn’t really any any colour
- Has a short shelf life
Available for only £1.99 in all good Superdrug stores. See NYC for all available shades.
