If you like to experiment with new lip shades, NYC lipsticks are your best bet. These lipsticks are easily available in the drugstore. They have excellent pigmentation, they offer a great value for your money, and they have a decent packaging. I bought a bunch of these in different shades: Retro Red, Ruby, Mocha, Chiffon, and Petal. Cost wise itís very cheap (under $3 Canadian with tax). As the name suggests ďultra moistĒ, itís quite moisturizing for my lips and I never had any issues of dried lips when I put the lipstick on.

As far as the packing goes, I never had any issues but I read a lot of reviews where people were complaining about the packaging and breaking off the product while opening and closing it. I agree itís a bit difficult when you open it for the first time but all you have to do is be a little careful and not put too much pressure on the cap while opening/ closing it. I have been using this product for over a year now and never damaged my lipstick. All in all, I am happy with my purchase and would recommend to anyone.

I love this lipstick. I recently started wearing lipstick, and I was on the hunt for a moisturizing formula that wasn't too red, just a nice deep Ruby. This fits the bill to a t, and the price can't be outdone. I got mine for 99 cents at Walmart. The color is unbelievable and it applies super smooth and ultra moist, true to its name. Worth every penny and then some!

UPDATE Oct26/14: I've fallen even more in love with this lipstick, simply because it's so moisturizing I don't have to worry if I forget lip balm. The color stays fairly long too, though I like to apply after eating just so I get that smooth sensation again! I forgot to mention before this lipstick also smells mouth-wateringly delicious! I will buy again and again!

This is a dark pink fuschia that leans towards red. I find it very wearable as most reds are too harsh on me. I think the shimmer is too much and I end up blotting. I think the formula is rather smooth and it lasts as a stain. Definitely a fun purchase for $.99.

I probably wont use it all up. I love the idea of a red lip but I think I look more balanced when I allow my eyes to be darker.

I actually took this lipstick from my sister and I loved the color so much, she gave me hers and I also bought a new one for myself. I'm a girl who loves bold lips and dark lips and this lipstick makes for a great bold lip.
The color for me depends on the number of swipes, one or two swipes comes off as a reddish-fuschia with the slightest bit of gold specks and an extra swipe definitely comes off more reddish and the gold is is much more visible. My skin tone is light-medium, leaning more towards the lighter side and I didn't feel like the color washed me out even though I have the habit of reapplying my lipstick frequently(trying to break that habit) and I tend to put on more than I need. Yes I agree packaging isn't that great, but the product itself is amazing and I definitely recommend!

LOVE this lipstick! One of my all time favorite reds! Super sparkly and VERY moisturizing. The price is super reasonable, too. Only problem is it doesn't last very long, which is to be expected for the price. But it's something that as soon as I'm out I'll be going out to buy again!

I don't know why everyone is saying this is a pink tone. for my skin tone (NC 25) It worked perfectly and came out as a bright red. I loved the gold sparkles.

I was completely thrown off by the name of this lipstick and actually expected it to be red, instead of the hot, fuschia pink it ended up being. I swear, this was so bright on me that you could see my lips from space. LOL I tossed it immediately and would never re-buy it.

I just bought it yesterday. A package is so-so, but it's INEXPENSIVE and also GOOD, too! I like this color. I don't use it too much because it's gold shimmer.
Next two days, I'll buy a new one (the other color for sure). NYC is good even thought it's not the greatest product.

Not only is this color amazing, but it is so inexpensive too! I love it! The one con would be it fades fast during the day when your out and about

Aside from NYC Sheer Red, Ruby is another one of my favorite red lipstick shades. Ruby isn't as universal as Sheer Red and is quite different in color and finish. Ruby looks warm on me and has a lot of pink in it with a slight coral hue. Ruby compliments my skintone when I am tan (NC40) not so much when I'm lighter. Ruby has a shimmery finish and does contain sparkles in it. The staying power is poor, I get maybe an hour without eating or drinking. I find Ruby to be pigmented and I only need to apply one layer to achieve my desired coverage. Ruby is a fun lipstick to have and it's so cheap for just a buck.
