Ten or Less: NYC Smooch Proof 16 Hour Lip Stain

I’m a little late to the NYC Smooch Proof 16 Hour Lip Stain party but I have finally arrived! It makes this Product Girl very happy to see more drugstore brands come up with lip stains. Sure, Cover Girl and Revlon have done them already but a lip stain you can get for under $5 is worth writing home about.  I was happy to see NYC have a nude brown shade in the bunch and one would think that I would head straight for it but in this case, my first pick was Persistent Pink. This is a great “your lips but better” shade and is just GORGEOUS with Pacifica’s Coconut Pearls Luminizing Lip Quench. The lip balm is like a luminizer for your lips that moisturizes and the light, long wearing pop of pink on the lips are magic together. I love the felt tip delivery here, my favorite in a lip stain, because I can line my lips with the tip and fill in with the side. This definitely did not come even close to the 16 hour mark in terms of wear but I don’t even mind that because I love the price so much… makes it easier for me to snag the rest of these!
