Feeling confident: New York Color 8Hr CityProof Extended Wear Lipgloss


When it comes to glosses, I’m more of a fan of just skipping them altogether.  I’ve never been a fan of having that sticky texture on my lips, but with lipsticks being more dry and matte lately, sometimes you need a gloss to jazz things up.

As part of their CityProof collection, New York Color has released some glosses that will keep you shining all day. Based off the city that never sleeps, these glosses are billed to give you an eight-hour wear, keeping your lips shiny from the time you wake up in your Upper West Side brownstone to your stroll through Central Park to dinner in the Meatpacking District (okay, one can wish…).

Available in 10 different shades, the CityProof Extended-Wear Lip Gloss is billed to have a non-sticky formula that provides high shine and rich colour with serious staying power for eight hours.

I received five different shades from the collection, and although I do find them to be a bit sticky, it’s due to the stickiness that makes them last longer on the lips. These glosses feature a doe-foot applicator, making them easy to apply. For a MSRP of $2.99, you can’t go wrong with these guys.  The colour is sheer, but perfect for layering them over a lipstick or just on your lips for a sheer wash of colour.

Do they last eight hours?  No, but with that being said, I do still find a sticky residue at the end of the eight-hour period.  So maybe the colour doesn’t last that long, but there’s still product on my lips.  But then again, I mean I don’t mind applying this gloss over and over throughout the day.

selfie It may not last eight hours, but it’s definitely longer than a New York minute.
