I used to love this 3 years ago and no one carries NYC anymore except Walmart so I found it - and it's not the same. It has less blue and it's sheer. Disappointing. I will not buy it again. I hate it when they keep the name and change the product totally. I have pictures of myself wearing this in 2014 and it was a full coverage lipstick, almost a matte, with very visible blue sheen. It was like nothing else. There were no dupes for this. Now it's more of a sheer pink. It's not so much the completely different shade, but the very sheer formula which gives streaky, thin coverage. I wish I had never done my makeup purges. Beware, someday you will miss those lipsticks you threw out, it may be next month, it may be in three years but it will happen when you miss it and try to replace it and find it's gone FOREVER.I tried MAC Show Orchid which is supposed to be the same, but it's not. I can recommend Revlon Wild Orchid which is almost the same as this "revised" version of Blue Rose. The original one is NOTHING like this or anything else. However, I'm still going to use this and Wild Orchid. They are pretty. They just aren't that unearthy blue.I remember when I loved their Forever Fuchsia and the next one I bought was completely different. Same deal with this. I don't think it's only NYC. I think other companies are careless about keeping shades the same. I mean I can't prove it since I don't have the orginals, but I'm sure that certain MAC, Revlon and Maybelline shades I got recently are very different from the original shades. Why oh why can't they be consistent???Update: I found a dupe in Wet n Wild Fuchsia with Blue Pearl. It's pretty close!

bluh bluh terrible packaging. Disregard the shoddy tube and buy Blue Rose for its stunning fuchsia colour payoff and vibrant blue sheen. IMO, Blue Rose is better than MAC Show Orchid. This lippie finishes more matte than other matte-in-name-only lipsticks, and it lasts for a long time without drying out your lips or settling into any lines. Indeed, that blue sheen persists even after the fuchsia base is gone! The vanilla scent that's common to all NYC Ultra Last lipsticks won't linger on the lips, however.I'd buy this quickly if you're shopping at Wal-Mart in Canada, since many NYC displays here are being replaced with FLOWER Beauty displays.

Excuse me while I go become addicted to these lil NYC lipsticks. Amazing!! Formula and color is seriously knock-out level gorgeous. Color is a mid-darker fuschia with a bright reflective tone and very slight blue tint. I think this is my new fave and for $2 it is also guilt-free. I think the packaging is kinda cute and different. Wouldn't change a thing. But I do need more colors.

I've been looking for a dupe to Mac's Show Orchid and heard about NYC's Blue Rose here on MUA. I am a very fair blonde with pink undertones and green eyes for reference, and love blue based pinks and fuchsias. I found Blue Rose at Target, for $1.99! Due to the price I was skeptical but what did I have to lose? I use both drugstore and premium brand lipsticks, and while you usually do get what you pay for I am blown away! The packaging sucks so be careful when putting the cap back on, but that's the only caveat. This lipstick glides on and is pigmented - one swipe was all I needed. I did not need a primer or liner, as it does not feather or bleed. There is no scent or taste, and it feels very light on my lips - all hallmarks of a good quality lipstick. It's demi-matte and is slightly drying but retains a nice sheen and is very comfortable to wear. It wore down to a nice stain after awhile but a quick swipe freshened it up nicely. And the color is fantastic. This will work on different skin tones but will look best on cool tones. It is a bright fuchsia with a pronounced blue sheen - if you aren't confident with brights this won't be for you, but I did not find it overpowering. I have worn it full blown and blotted down for a softer effect and both are very pretty, I also put it on over other pinks to make full use of that blue sheen which I think is just gorgeous. Anyway, I know this is long but I can't get over how nice this lipstick is and all for $1.99! I feel like I got a steal, and I'm going to stock up on more just so I'm never without it.

Beautiful fuchsia color but pls dont expect it to last 3 complete hours without a good lip primer (or just foundation/concealer underneath it) otherwise it will get blotchy within those 3 hours. Still a great buy for the price, pigment, and quality. Enjoy it bc its in this year!

OMG this is an HG color for me! I have been on the hunt for this type of color for a long time. I saw they were releasing some new lipsticks from NYC and I checked this out with a few others. THIS is a bright fuchsia and sooooo gorgeous. Oh man, I am so in love with this color. I just got MAC Flat Out Fabulous and this is a close rival.VERY blue-toned pink, so if you are afraid of them or they don't look good on your skin-tone, stay away. I am a NW20 and am pretty cool. I do not look good in ANY warm colors. They have to be this type of color, VERY cool and blue-based. I don't think this is the color you can tone down or warm up either unfortunately. Price? 1.99! Formula is better than the old NYC lipsticks. Leaves behind a stain in the same shade. LOVE!

Oh my, what can I say? This shade is GORGEOUS! It's a really bright fuchsia color, perfect for the spring and summer months. It's definitely a bold, statement making color. And when the light hits it, it gives off this beautiful blue sheen which makes it a very unique color to me. Definitely recommend!
